I can’t believe it’s almost August… don’t you think this year is absolutely flying by?! I’ve been looking forward to August for months as it’s when we go on a family holiday… but what else is going on next month that I’m looking forward to:
We like to make the most of the summer holidays and head out on day trips. We are going up to Sheffield one day to visit my parents and I’d like to get to London for the day. Where else we are going to go, I’m not sure yet… but I’d love to spend a day at the beach too!
Lazy Evenings in the Sunshine
For most of the year I spend my evenings sitting poolside, watching Freya training… but for 6 weeks over summer training takes a back seat and my evenings are my own again! It is lovely just to be able to sit outside with a glass of wine and relax – whether that’s in the garden or outside the local canalside bar…
Family Trip to Center Parcs
We are off to Center Parcs, Whinfell Forest in the middle of August for my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary (Gold, in case you’re wondering!). There are 8 of us going – ranging from 9 years old to 76 years old – so it should be great fun! And I love the Lake District too so am looking forward to getting outside and heading for the hills!
ACE (aka Annual Camping Expedition)
We have done an annual camping trip with a group of friends for goodness knows how many years… there are slightly fewer of us go nowadays and it is not the riotous expedition it once was (as we now all have children!) but it’s still a lot of fun! Laughing, eating, drinking outdoors – what’s not to love??
What I’m not looking forward to in August is that it signals the end of the school summer holidays so it’s back to early starts, packed lunches, etc at the end of the month… but there’s always the Christmas holidays to look forward to (not to mention a trip to New York in November)!!
What are you looking forward to in August?
