We have been pretty lucky with the weather here in the UK this year! August was another lovely month, and it was even sunny on my birthday for a change!

Birthday by the Seaside

I wasn't sure Monday was the best day for a birthday, but it's a great day if you have the day off - I was incredibly lucky to have lots of celebrations over the weekend with friends and family, and a lovely day by the seaside with Tim. I took my Holga 'toy' camera along and got some fun snaps of the day.

Commercial Work

August was filled with lots interesting commercial work, including some product photography for an online shop, and a fantastic Centenary Celebration Family Day at the Geffrye, Museum of the Home. To see some images of the day visit their Facebook page

Days out in the Sunshine and Holidays by the Sea

We went for a couple of lovely walks, including Hadleigh Country Park, and managed to get away for a few days to the Gower Peninsula, where we had some gorgeous sunny walks along the coast.

Resolution Update

Recipe of the week is still going strong, with this month's favourite being plum and almond crumble slice, made using plums from our mysteriously appearing plum tree.

I've also continued the weekly montages, though no longer called 'Monday Montages' as the day varies a bit, but they've stayed weekly at least! I think my favourite was the week of my birthday:

How was your August? What have you got planned for September?
