June ~ Round Up. ๐Ÿ’—

Another month has sped by and half a year has passed already. Crazy or what!

Reading. The only reading I’m doing at the moment is reading about books I might want to read. Haha. Oh and reading blogs of course. ๐Ÿ˜Š I really need an incredibly short novel to get me started, if anyone has any recommendations…

Watching. Now that I’ve finished 7 seasons of Grace & Frankie ( sob! ) ,I am in need of something else to fill that time in the day between my early morning shift and my late afternoon shift. Of course I do get on with housework and take Hugo out as well, I am not a complete couch potato. Honest! I quickly sped through Russian Doll starring the brilliant Natasha Lyonne , in the first season she gets stuck in a timewarp where she has to celebrate her 36th Birthday everyday. But she also has to die everyday, so not all good. Wil and I watched a film, Dog starring Channing Tatum as a War Veteran assigned to take a War Hero dog to her handlers funeral. Not all runs smoothly on this Road/Buddy movie, it’s an enjoyable ( occasionally hard) watch.

Eating. A Heat-Up to Eat-Up Take-Away has sprung up nearby ,so one Friday night we ordered a yummy platter. Grounded in Clitheroe is hoping to open as a deli shortly too. Can’t wait to buy some more globally inspired nibbly bits soon.

Walking. I have blogged about a walk from Shap in Cumbria and a walk that features wildflower meadows at Slaidburn in Lancashire , this month. Just incase you missed them. ๐Ÿ˜ I find myself regularly doing 25 thousand + steps a day at the moment ,due to walking up and down corridors at work and walking the dog.

Animal Encounters. June was the month I held a snake called April. April is a Milk ๐Ÿ Snake. Milk Snakes aren’t venomous happily , their bright colours fool potential predetors into thinking they are dangerous. I did the Animal Encounters Experience again in Melmerby, this time with friends , who were stopping with me at the van. If you don’t fancy getting up close and personal with snakes and hissing cockroaches, there are also alpacas, llamas, ponies, rabbits and goats to cuddle.

Enjoying. Flowers that resemble insects. A couple of beautiful bee orchids are in flower in the quarry area at Cross Hill Nature Reserve , saw them on a dog walk. So bee ๐Ÿ autiful. โค๏ธ

Friends Becoming 50. No not me! Not quite yet. The first of a group of good friends hit the big 50 last weekend. She had a 70s/80s/90s themed party at her home , with a cheesy disco, We had a really fun time. Happy Birthday Jo!

See you in July. ๐Ÿ’—

  1. Well, Channing Tatum with a wolfy looking dog is an enticing prospect! That man is very easy on the eyes ๐Ÿ˜„

    I hear you about the reading slump, I havenโ€™t read a book in ages. I just havenโ€™t found anything that catches me. Iโ€™m still listening to Audiobooks but think that actually makes it harder to get back to reading!

  2. When I read about your Slaidburn (Coronation Meadow walk) I thought I must tell Himself we should visit too – we have done annually for a while now as I love the wild flowers… guess what!?! I forgot๐Ÿ™„wonder what the meadows look like now…

    1. I was surprised I do that many. They are spread over the day, I feel pretty knackered but getting used to it ~ the early morning shift is one I recently picked up. It’s definitely added to my steps.Sounds like you had an epic walk!

  3. Sounds like a lovely month of happenings. Thanks for sharing some summery fun for us wet & cold folks down under. Take care & hugs.

  4. Looks like you have had another lovely month filled with fun and wonderful things. I hear you on reading slumps it is easy to get into them isn’t, it often happens for me after I have had a really good book and then I don’t know what to follow it up with. I hope you find a book that hits the spot soon.

  5. The heat-up and eat-up takeaway sounds great.
    My year of school friends have are now turning 50 (mine was last December) and over on FB Iโ€™ve started a photo album called School Kids Turning 50, where anyone I encounter who went to either of my three schools with me is required to have a selfie with me. Itโ€™s been quite popular-some are making requests to feature, some are actively avoiding me ๐Ÿ˜‚ but everyone is waiting to see who is posted next and itโ€™s serving a great half-century childhood nostalgia need.
