August – My Hopes and Dreams

Hey there 🙂 Well it’s 2nd August so I know I’m a little bit late to the party for setting my August goals, but you know what they say – better late than never!!

I decided yesterday that I am going to have a regular feature on my blog – well two actually! I’m going to do a round-up of the month before and then hopes and dreams for the following month. So here we are with my Hopes and Dreams for August! I think it’s really important for our well-being to have things to look forward to.

I wonder what the weather is going to be like for August, so far over the last couple of months, the weather has been scorching, it was about 36 degrees last week. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the summer but that is a little bit too hot!

My main focus this month is going to be my new job as Admin and Marketing Assistant!  I am really looking forward to it but at the same time a little apprehensive about it as well! It seems like a lovely friendly place to be so I really want to fit in and to be able to do the job well!

I am opening my mind to learning new things, I actually really enjoy finding out about new things so I know I will enjoy the challenges.  I have been experimenting with Canva already as I know my job will involve using that and I want to get my head around it a bit first. I need to try and understand Mail Chimp as well so I have am aiming to get bit of a heads up with that too. I have been told I will have training in everything so that’s fantastic, it’s just, you know, something completely new 😀

I probably say this a lot but I need to get a bit fitter, I have been going to Pilates and swimming fairly regularly over the last couple of weeks but I have been lazy when it comes to the gym, I just can’t seem too muster the enthusiasm to go. I know it’s been a while as I received an email inviting me to book a restart session with a personal trainer!! 😂

On the house front I want to get our front door painted.  At the moment it is one of the PVC ones and the colour is ‘wood effect’ if that exists! It’s kind of what you’d call pine I guess.  Well we’ve found this amazing paint that goes on any surface – we upcycled our bedside drawers with it and it’s fab! So anyway we’ve bought a tin for the front door, it’s a beautiful paleish blue/grey colour so I can’t wait to see how that goes!  I just read that back and when I said ‘on the house front’ I actually didn’t mean on the front of the house, but well it is – so, you know!!

So these are a few of the things that I want to achieve in August.  There are a few more, but you know what they say – small steps!

My best wishes to you for a happy August and hope that it will be kind to you.

Hi, thanks for reading. I'm Fiona, I live in Surrey, England. I started my blog in January 2018. I like trying to be healthy and trying to make our home and garden look pretty. I love cats, dogs, cooking, flowers, light pink and light blue and pretty things. In my head I can run marathons but realistically I can only run a tap. I like to be happy - who doesn’t?! I like nice people and try to make the most out of life and be positive as much as I can 😊
