Time for my monthly look back at all the things that I have liked and loved this month, this time for June 2016. I add this to my Ten Things/Liked and Loved linky, if any one would like to join in with that. It opens on the 25th of every month and closes on the 20th.
Here is what I have liked and loved this month…
My Britmums’ Sponsor
I know I mentioned this as one of my ten last month, but it is actually this month it is happening and I really am so grateful to the wonderful Bosinver Cottages for sponsoring me.
The boys loved our Butlin’s Minehead break over half term as part of my position as a Butlin’s Blog Ambassador this year and it was great to get away as a family. Plus we got to watch Diversity live and meet them briefly during the day! We’re hoping to go back with friends next year.
Getting new tyres and brake discs
This may seem like a weird thing to like, but driving to Butlin’s the scenic way we discovered my slight lack of brakes. The discs I had were awful when we looked at them, so I am very happy to be driving safely again.
We had a lovely day out at The National Trust’s Dunster Castle when we were in Somerset over half term. It was the first time we had visited and it was such a stunning place.
Game of Thrones
We were late to join the Game of Thrones bandwagon, but after becoming a part of the NOW TV Blog Squad (click the badge in my sidebar if you want to know more about NOW TV), we binge watched hours and hours of it as we were slightly hooked. The new series now is brilliant and this weeks episode…. just wow, my favourite so far. I just love how unpredictable it is.
I used to be a lot fitter than I am now, after some pretty awful back issues for almost two years, that seem to have mostly resolved themselves in recent months, I am now working to build up my fitness again. This week I ran for the longest that I have in years on the treadmill and despite being a red-faced mess that could hardly stand up (I looked so pretty) I am very proud of that.
Now to keep on adding more time on and pushing myself even harder.
Butlin’s was amazing, but it did mean I put on 6 lbs …. basically all the weight that I had already lost through the use of Slimming World, but the combination of running and being back on plan has meant that I lost 7 lbs since we came back. I am now officially in my healthy weight range… just ;)
The new X-Men and Turtles films
I really enjoy superhero and action films, and any new one usually results in a trip to the cinema with the boys. We really enjoyed both of the films, and it is always great to go as a family to watch things that we all like.
My new dress
I had no idea what to wear to Britmums this weekend, I kept wanting to be comfortable in jeans…. then I worried I’d be too hot, and in the end the decision was made for me. I found a Ralph Lauren dress in TK Maxx for £39.99, there was no way I could resist a bargain like that, plus I really do love the dress.
My usual style is more eBay bargains or cheap buys from the clothing section of a supermarket, so hopefully the slightly more sophisticated look will give me a confidence boost for the day. I am a teeny bit nervous!
What has been great about your June?
