I’m not certain but I think July might have had more posts than ever before. It’s also marked a massive change in things at home, as my fiance now works away Monday through Friday, so I have less time for well, everything, since that leaves me to look after the rabbits and the house. Oh plus there’s that impending Big Day getting ever closer, with a “to do” list that seems to only get longer. What’s that about? I sweat I cross three things off and yet five more appear!
So, what did July hold? Well, a heck of a lot of posts, somehow! Including six new recipes – ranging from healthy salads with spicy dressings to squidgy, chocolate brownies! I also shared my first recipe for a drink – and of course it was a cocktail! I also wrote about feeling sad and happy at the same time, shared how I set up my blog and even dipped my toe into a little bit of beauty blogging (such that my night routine is!).
July brought with it a new regular post schedule (which I mentioned in July’s roundup) – I post now every Monday and Wednesday, with occasional forays into Friday posts if I have something extra to say and Thursday Thoughts remains an occasional “special edition” if you like because… well I like the name.

However I do have a confession: getting more posts up and keeping them spot-on at the same time as having less free time, has meant my ebook recipe book is a little… sidelined at the moment. I’m sorry! I need more hours in the day – it is still coming, just a little delayed. I promise!

This month’s most popular posts
After two months of that Oreo cupcake recipe taking the top spot, we have a new most popular post for July: and it’s savoury!
None! I was reading The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro but I left it in the canteen at work and somebody walked off with it… without handing it back in.
August? Bring it on!
I seriously can’t believe August is here but… here it is and here it will stay. What’s on the cards? Well I’ve been perfecting an indulgent oatmeal recipe inspired by a Starbucks drink, have a trusty one-pan chili that even has a video planned in and I’ve been wanting to try kimchi for ages so I’m going to finally rip that spicy band aid off and let you know how it goes!
