This month was so busy, we have new bedside tables and we did a little bit of DIY in the caravan. We had a trip with the caravan at Hadrian’s Wall and it was even better than expected, amazing views and lots of nice places to see. I got to use an honesty box again and I really love those. I watched the Olympics and I was so happy with the results team GB had. We found an international shop with lots of interesting produce, things I never tried before, like plantain and a couple of Romanian items. We also went to the Chinese shop and I bought lots of things from there too. As you can see half of my Intagram feed was food. Bake Off started and I’m baking along, like last year. It’s so exciting.

Another one of my Clematis was in bloom. Day 217. Vegan smoothie, still having a smoothie/soup every day since I started the smoothie challenge on 1st June. Day 218.
