Sunshine and Puppy Pandemonium

How is it August already? It feels like Christmas was only a couple of months ago, and we're somehow nearing the end of summer. August is going to be a very busy month for me as my dissertation is due in on September 5th, and I also have my driving theory test and job applications to organise. I am glad that autumn is just around the corner.

July was quite an interesting month for me. I'm only going to share a few photos as I took quite a few last month! At the beginning of July I decided to take Bree for a walk at Elvaston Castle, which is one of my favourite places. Bree loves it. It was incredibly hot, so we had a slow walk around the woodland.

Last weekend we took Bree for an overdue visit to see my aunt and uncle in Surrey. They recently adopted a little Scottie and Westie cross named Fergus, who is sixteen weeks old. We were concerned that they wouldn't get along, but they adored each other. They loved playing tug and sitting in the sunshine together. We're spending Christmas with them so it will be interesting to see how big he is when we go back! It was a lovely weekend. It was warm and sunny, so we had a wonderful time. We didn't visit too many places, but we took the puppies on a few short walks in a local woodland area. It was surprisingly beautiful, and quite eerie in a serene way at night.

As always, I also went book shopping. My little sister volunteers in a secondhand bookshop, and I bought six books when I went in to visit her. It's a wonderful little shop, and I always find something I like in there.

I also bought two more books on my visit to Surrey. One of my lecturers recommended Wolf Hall to me and at £1.49, I thought it would be silly to leave it behind! I also bought This House is Haunted by John Boyne. I've heard quite a bit about it and I cannot wait to start reading it. I want to start posting book reviews again so I'll try and review it when I finally get around to reading it.

I hope you all had an enjoyable July. I cannot wait until we finally reach autumn. Time seems to have just been slipping through my fingers recently; it will be winter again before we know it! Autumn is my favourite season so I'm not particularly disappointed to see the summer months flying by.

Did you do anything interesting in July?


  1. Ohhhh she looks sooo cute :D
    Beautiful place! I love long walks through the woods, cleans my soul :)
    Soo many great books :)

    1. Thank you! I agree, I adore walks through the woods. It's so peaceful.

      I'm definitely going to run out of room for books soon, but I can never resist secondhand bookshops!
