June and July

This is my first time at doing a sort of round-up post but I'm not really sure why - everyone in the world knows I love a list and so I'm surprised I haven't been drafting this throughout the month anyway!

June was quite a busy (read: expensive) month in the end. I suppose that as soon as Summer comes it gets that way - you're more in the mood for socialising and less in the mood for watching boxsets at home (though I, of course, have been doing that as well - I'm ploughing through Desperate Housewives and also enjoying the new series' of New Girl and The Mindy Project). I also finished reading On The Road (didn't really enjoy it - found it indulgent), read The Fault In Our Stars (ploughed through it in Oslo) and Treasure Island (only started as it was one of the three free ebooks that came with my phone, and I found myself without a book in Oslo airport), and started The Jane Austen Book Club.

So, what has all my money gone on this month...

I've had dinners at Franco Manca, Frank's Restaurant and Mussels Bar, Gourmet Pizza, Porky's and The Buxted Inn, as well as eating as much as I could at Taste of London. I went to see Clarence Darrow at The Old Vic, had a bridesmaid dress altered, watched some football, gone to Wimbledon (finally seen Nadal play SWOON) and had one of our work events that has been months in the planning. I also FINALLY upgraded to Spotify premium, which is not a big deal to anyone else but I'm already pretty sure it's the best decision I've made so far this year.

And then of course we went to Oslo

Next month I'm going to be spending a week in Llandeillo and a weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon for a hen do. The hen do is one I've been organising for months and although I can't wait for it to be here I cannot lie and say I won't be relieved once it's all done with! Writing that one up will be a long one, that was probably another draft I should have had on the go for a while...!
