7 Things I’ve learnt in August 2018

step0002 (3)

I saw this on another blog and thought it was a great idea, I’m going to share anything from occasionally significant to maybe a little shallow things I’ve learnt each month.

1. Audiobooks!

I want to love them, but I just can’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started two in the last month and have not finished either. I love the idea of them, but the person reading them plays a big part for me. I may go back and try again.

2. Notes!

I like to take notes in fancy notebooks, do half of the things on them and then forgetting about the rest! Yes kinda good but also kinda bad. I don’t know why and then I end up putting them on the next least on top so they generally do get done.

3. Wexford is Ireland’s Spain!

I spent a week in Wexford with my family this month, not only was it great to get away for a week but we did a lot of touristy things and spent time on the beach.

4. The Beach is my happy place!

I love to spend time on the beach just paddling by the edge of the sea and taking it all in. It relaxes me and usually my husband will go for a swim and I enjoy watching him do that because I know he loves it. I did a lot of this while we where in Wexford.


5. The smell of lime makes me think of Gin!

Yes the smell of lime, which I love, makes me think of Gin. I love a good few slices plopped into my Gin. So now anytime I smell it, it makes me stop and think… hmmm Gin!

6. How to take care of Succullents

One of my Succulents actually flowered this month. A beautiful Orange colour, go figure!


7. Lavender is the bomb.com

I went to a lavender farm in Wicklow this month and brought some home. I love the smell, the colour and just the overall feel of it in the room. Best thing about it is, when it dries out it still just as beautiful.

  1. I really enjoyed this post. This is a great idea. Keep it up I’d love to read this every month.

    I have some good audio voices I’ll send you some names we will find you one. I have a few that I just can’t listen to for some reason as well.

    I do the exact same thing with lists I use A5 post it pads though. I have green orange yellow and pink. I do have a million notebooks in work too though.

    Iv never done a holiday in Wexford though I’d love to know the places you would recommend
