Hello September.

Are we seriously in September already? It won't be long before Christmas paraphernalia will be taking over. This year seems to have flown by, even more so than usual, does anyone else feel the same? I think we all say that every time we enter a new month but can life just slow down a little.

I thought I'd do a little recap of August as I love reading what everyone's been up to throughout the month. Plus it's been a little while since I last did one of these and I want to get back in the habit of writing them.

So what did I do in August?

» I've managed to go 27 years without experiencing the wonder that is Ikea. I know, I know absolute madness. But where I used to live the closest one was around 100 miles away and I never got around to going since it'd be a bit of a trek. Ever since the Reading Ikea opened I've been dying to go and it did not disappoint. I just want to fill my home with beautiful kitchen cabinets and cute little nick nacks.

» Meatballs. Mhmm, what can I say other than delicious? I made sure to bring some home with me.

» GBBO is back, finally! Oh, it feels like I've been waiting for ages. I'm not usually a fan of cooking shows but there's just something about it that I really love. Especially when it all goes tits up! Perhaps I shouldn't admit to it but I know I'm not alone. But the delicious cakes and marvellous creations just make me wish I was a little better at baking.

» My little Pepsi kitty got pretty sick. I had to pay a pretty penny to get her back on her feet again and feeling like her usual self (get pet insurance people, don't make my mistake). It was pretty odd to be away from her for three days along with not knowing if I'd be bringing her home or not was pretty stressful. But she's back with me now and getting lots of love and attention.

» For a while now I've been contemplating getting a Cineworld Unlimited card. There're so many good films being released at the moment so I bit the bullet and signed up. £17.40 a month lets you watch as many films as you wish! I watched The Purge: Election Year a couple of days ago, it was gruesome with more than a few scenes that'll make you jump. I also highly rate Finding Dory and The Secret Life Of Pets, both very different from The Purge so I guess you could say my tastes are pretty diverse.

I'm looking forward to September as I have a little time away from work. I tend not to take any during the summer holidays because I like my days to be as child free as possible. In that time I plan to chill out as much as possible and look after myself, along with scheduling plenty of fresh new content.
