A Month of Memories: June

It keeps freaking me out that it’s somehow July already!? We have literally just surpassed the halfway mark of another year which is crazy and frightening in equal measures!

June was, for the most part, a good month despite a few unsuspecting issues cropping up here and there…

A big highlight was my brother, his wife and my nieces returning from Singapore. I have 8(!) nieces and nephews, family events tend to be a whirlwind of someone crying, someone shouting, losing an important toy, and barely getting through a conversation (or a sandwich) without a little person interrupting. But, we wouldn’t have it any other way! My other nieces and nephews live in the UK, but as the twins have been in Singapore we met them once shortly after they were born and have had a few months gap since then. Having them back in the UK is lovely, and they’re at that lovely cuddly age where they’re not walking or crawling so love a carry and to have a sleep on you.

I also had a blast going to Rugby 7s at Twickenham – in the past year or so I’ve started to really enjoy sporting events; we took a friend to a local football match at Loftus Road to watch QPR against Middlesborough and despite not being a huge football fan the atmosphere was heaps of fun! 7s was no different and I thought the atmosphere was great – there were families and a few drunken stag dos but everyone was just there to have a great time; fab day out! And the weather was so great, too!

I wrote something pretty personal after discovering a lump in my breast and after an anxious few weeks, happily got the all clear when I found out it was a simple fibroadenoma (or ‘breast mouse’ – yes, I lol’d too).


I’ve been upping my running game – I’ve actually booked to do a 10k, but in all honesty, I’m not sure if I’m going to make it; Ive given myself quite a short amount of time, but I have been trying really hard and I know I’d feel disappointed if I didn’t even try! There’s some beautiful parks and I love heading home to run in the country side – I did a warm down by hiking up the hill near where I live and the VIEWS are just perfect. I’m really trying to up my fitness game, and I’ve also signed up to a local netball league – I’ll be writing that up soon, too!

I also completed my first Park Run with a few friends and it was AMAZING, as were the crepes we ate afterwards (we’d earned it after all!) 😉

I’m so excited for July, I’ve got Henley Regatta, a day at Wimbledon, and 4 days kayaking in Sardinia; it’s going to be an amazing month!

How was your June?

    Glad you’ve had such a good month, very impressed with all your running – you deserve all the crepes!
    I’m so pleased you got to see your gorgeous neices, the photos are absolutely adorable! I’m excited to hear all about your netball!

    How beautiful do you look in these photos?! You’re absolutely radiant – especially that smile when you’re holding your baby niece! Lashes on point too, they’re beautiful 😉 Huge well done on booking your first 10k, I still haven’t got that far in my running career! I’ve been sticking to the same distances for a while now and I need to start pushing myself more! I hope you had an amazing time at the regatta and at Wimbledon, going to watch the tennis one year is definitely on my bucket list!

    Wow, you are really smashing it with the running! I’ve always wanted to take it up but I’m so unfit that I’m not sure I’d manage a full minute of it before I keeled over. I reckon you’ll do great in your 10k! I’m also jealous of you going to the 7s! I love rugby, and the 7s is such a fun day out. I’m rubbish at sports but there’s something so fun about going to watch them! I’ve never heard of ‘breast mouse’ but I’m very glad that you’re okay.
    That photo of you and your niece is so beautiful, too!

    Beautiful photos! It sounds like you’ve been so busy but it all looks like a lot of fun (apart from the bit about finding the lump… I’m SO GLAD that turned out okay in the end). And well done on the running – something I keep trying to get into and I always fail!

      Haha you definitely can – honestly I was the biggest non-runner you could imagine, give it a try you’ll definitely surprise yourself!
