July: Monthly Reflection

Honestly, these past two months have been a whirlwind, with difficult situations to overcome and the return to work, but I’ve had a rewarding month.

I am coming out of lockdown with a new refreshing feeling and more purpose to life. Especially when it comes to a routine, my weeks are now no longer rollling into one another because I have some more structure to each day.

Returning to the office has been great, I’ve got back into a nice routine since working from home. I didn’t dislike working from home, but after a while it got very monotonous and felt like groundhog day … everyday!

May, June and July have seemed to just fly by, my life hasn’t really changed in those three months, although I have been getting out and about more in nature, I’ve been trying to have one long walk a week.

I feel like I keep going on about the nature in my local area but I can’t stop talking about it. There’s so many lovely places to walk to or around such as parks and woodland.

2020 will be a memorable year simply because of Covid, but I’m beginning to think it will also be one of the prettiest. We have had some gorgeous weather over the past month, even though it has rained I think it’s been one of the most beautiful years.

The rain we have had combined with the sun has made all the plants and flowers bloom, everywhere you go there are beautiful plants and flowers growing.

The easing of the lockdown restrictions: cafes and bars can now open in the UK. I will admit  I am still a bit hesitant with bars as I don’t go out very often.

However, I have been to a few restaurants and it’s actually been a really nice experience, the fewer people there make it a nicer environment.

So here are some things that I am looking forward to for the next month because I haven’t really done much this month other than go back to work.

  • More local adventures: I feel like I haven’t done a long one in a while, so I can’t wait to go on a few long walks in my local area and discover more nature.
  • More visits restaurants, haha yes more food. But I’ve got my mum’s birthday coming up to celebrate, so why not make the most of it and go for a nice meal.
  • My Boyfriend, Aaron has been cooking a lot and over the past few weeks, I’ve been helping. We made pizzas, scones and sausage rolls, they were all amazing, so I’m hoping we can do a lot more!
    It’s going to be good to start going out more but I am going to miss the things we’ve been doing at home!
  • Summer holidays: Yes! I am going on holiday in September, my boyfriend and I are going to Norfolk.
    I haven’t been there before so it will be interesting to see what we can discover and there will be many blog posts coming up in September and October about all of the places I’ve been to.

The rest of the year is definitely looking more promising, especially with life becoming more normal.

I’m definitely looking forward to my holiday to Norfolk, I love exploring new places so I will definitely be taking a bucket list of places I want to see.

Let me know what you’ve been up to throughout July!

  1. Hasn’t it just been the strangest year?

    It’s nice to begin to adjust to the new normal way of life and embrace getting back out again. Me and my fiancé are going out for dinner and it feels like a really big deal.

    I’ll never take stuff like that for granted again x

  2. I love all your pictures! It sounds nice to have a little more structure in your day and freedom to go to restaurants safely. I’m still working from home and the cases in my state continue to rise, so we’re continuing to hang tight and wait it out 🙂 Patience is key but I’m motivated by hearing stories like yours of transitioning back to “normal.” Thanks for sharing!

  3. Glad you’ve found some comforts in the last few months and you’ve now been able to go back into the office too – seems like you’ve made the best of it!

  4. One thing the pandemic has made me do is reflect about missed opportunities and the things I took for granted. I have a new appreciation for life, and a growing bucket list of things to do 😄

    Enjoyed reading this. Thanks for sharing. 😊

  5. Scones are the best right? We could make them every week and never get bored.
    Enjoy Norfolk, it’s a beautiful and varied county. I particularly love the coast from Blakeney to Wells Next the Sea. If you’re in Norwich, you HAVE to go to the Waffle House. It’s a little out of the way but very much worth it.
