Well, June didn’t exactly pan out as I expected. Let’s start with the positives shall we? I’ll dig deep here…
The month started well – the end of our week in Weymouth. The weather wasn’t amazing, but mainly dry and we enjoyed some nice days out and walks along the seafront. I love running by the sea and managed to clock up some decent times too.
My focus in June was on personal advancement. I had an exam in the middle of month, and an assignment I submitted last weekend. I don’t have the results yet, but I’m reasonably happy with what I submitted, so all being well, that’s year one in the bank and now the chance to have a bit of time out before starting my 2nd year in September. I’ve also had a busy month at work getting involved in some new areas that I haven’t done before, which has been a steep learning curve but interesting nevertheless.
I’ve been consistent in eating well and exercising which has been good, despite having a lot on.
Then there have been a few low lights, the obvious one being Brexit and the fall out we’ve started to see. There have been some awful events in the world during June, which are really shocking and saddening. The football has been an English disaster. The summer also seems to be MIA, which doesn’t help my mood at all. Poppy has been poorly and we’ve had another visit from the deep joy that is head lice. I’m pretty glad to see the back of June to be honest.
So onwards then. How is it possible that we’re halfway through the year already? Hopefully there will be more to look forward to in July, not least because we go on holiday at the end of it. And surely, SURELY the sun must come out at some point? I’m doing a triathlon next weekend that I’m looking forward to and it’s also our 17th wedding anniversary at the end of the month. Daisy will finish year 1 at school and we have shows, sports days and graduation-from-nursery ceremonies to come.
At the start of the year, I wrote down some of my plans and goals for the year, so it seems like a good time to revisit them and see how I’m doing. So the focus for July will be reviewing, refining and updating the list so that I can reflect on what I’ve squeezed into the first half of the year and I’m clear about what I want to get out of the 2nd half.
