August

 

August has been a good month here....there has been our lovely holiday to Arran, lots of family walks, a visit to Ayr Flower Show and a few beach trips. We have eaten several ice creams and drunk lots of tea and the odd glass of fizz. Miss M and I got new teeny tiny brooches. I have also managed to do lots of crochet during my time off from work which is always good! Mostly I have just enjoyed spending time with my wee family this August.

 

Can you tell that I have a new love for making photo collages?! I really enjoyed putting the photos in wee groups for this post....some photos are from my Instagram account, others are just photos I have taken on my phone throughout the month. I am hoping to do a post like this every month now as I think it's a nice way to remember the good parts of my days!

 

I'm now looking forward to seeing what September will bring....

PS...Thank you for the lovely comments recently. I especially enjoyed reading the comments about Instagram, those were interesting and I enjoyed finding out what you all thought. A few had wondered if I would abandon my blog in favour of Instagram...I can safely say definitely not! I do enjoy Instagram and it's a fun way to share photos but I love blogging and fully intend to carry on with this little blog here!

  1. Ooh, that ice cream. It reminds me of one that Hubby and I tried to eat on a very windy day. He was sitting down wind of my ice cream which a strong gust blew all over him. I thought it was hilarious. I don't think he did!!

  5. Love the collage, very clever. I am afraid I have to confess I do not know what Instagram is. Some really lovely pictures recording memories.

  16. What really lovely photos. August was a good month though not so great weather-wise! But it doesn't matter what the weather is like when we're with friends and family. How do you make those collages? I'd love to be able to do it but can't work out how to.

  20. A gorgeous collection of photos and I must say it feels rather lovely that I can see you over on IG, so pleased that you have joined, even when I spent a little more time over on my other feed and not so much time on Cosmos and Cotton as I would like, but its all the signing in and out stuff that does my head in a bit! Looks like you had a gorgeous August! Sending you much love xoxo
