The Month That Was... August 2019

Another month of lots of reading but not much reviewing. I finished my N.E.W.T.s for Magizoologist though and I'll be posting a wrap-up with mini reviews soon as well as some more in-depth reviews later. In the meantime you can see my star ratings at least.


Pictured above is a mini succulent garden I made with a cracked oven dish, planted up with sempervivum.

Josh made awesome pickled courgettes with our home grown veg. They are a bit like gherkins, and it's so nice having some alternative ways of using up courgettes. We're also deluged by cucumbers at the moment and have a bunch of long aubergines forming. I love having veg in the garden but it'll be sad when it's all died down again.

Scully the Labrador being hosed down

Can you believe Scully is three years old already? She's sort of quietened down a bit now but she still gets over-excited when her favourite people visit.

Here's what made it onto the blog...
