April 2017 – This Month and Month Ahead

This Month is a new feature I had been planning to add in, in the new year, though it’s been a bit delayed. Joy of working full-time, and making things in between really.

I’ve been writing this blog for a few months now, slowly making it how I want, with some things still to knock into place so I’m getting there!

This Month

So, every month I want to add in a bit of, well, me, to the blog: What I’ve been up to, whether I’ve been anywhere fun, what I’ve been enjoying, watching, reading and so on.

But also, to remain positive, some goals, and things that I’m looking forward to, and so, instead of looking back, looking forward to – The Month Ahead!

Just as a bit more of a personal side to the blog really!

This Month


The weather has been pretty awful, so we haven’t been out much yet, though more will come through the year! We paid a visit to Land’s End the second Saturday in April. It was a really nice day, if a bit windy but we had a nice walk around the cliffs and we even had our first ice-creams of the year!

Cornwall is such a great place to live, because there is so much variety on our doorstep, I’m sure we’ll be sharing some fun days out soon!


We re-watched 90’s sitcom Coupling on Netflix which was great fun!

Over easter we watched all of the Pirates of the Caribbean films because a long weekend means a franchise!


We didn’t go to the cinema this month, as we decided to give the two planned films a miss! Shocking I know but usually we go a couple of times a month!

Listening to: 

Music wise, my current favourite albums are:  Mumford & Sons – Wilder Mind, Biffy Clyro – Ellipsis,  and Bon Iver – 22, A Million.

Podcasts including the ever hilarious Skip to the End Podcast (if you’re a movie lover you should check them out, seriously) and the Standard Issue podcast (Funny stuff, and real life stuff, for women, by women),


I’ve been reading Mr Mercedes for what seems like forever, because I keep NOT reading it. It is brilliant so far though- I just need to read the other half!

This month I'm reading Mr Mercedes by Stephen King


My brand spanking new red Converse lo-tops and this wonderful limited edition Skip to the End T-shirt from Dark Bunny Tees:

Lands End, Skip to the End

Looking Ahead

There is one BIG thing we did this month… I think it calls for a graphic… 


Yes!! We’re off on holiday next month! It’s all very exciting, because we’re off to Disneyland Paris for the 25th Anniversary!

We went a couple of years ago, and decided we had to return for the anniversary celebrations, because it looked so fun, and it’s happening next month!

I don’t think I can add anything else for May, I’m pretty sure that’s the only thing I’ll be thinking about until we go! We’ll be staying in one of the affiliate hotels again, like we did last year, because it was cheaper and they still have the free bus to the parks. I’m hoping it will be slightly less hot than our last Disney trip which was absurd! And of course I’ll do a blog post when we’re back to share all the fun!

What are you up to this month? Have you done anything fun?
