As luck would have it, the day that I wrote and published my summer bucket list was the last nice day we had all week. Since then, the weather here in Leeds has taken a turn for the worse. A sharp, severe turn all the way back to October.

I tell ya reader friends, it has been unpleasantly cold. Like wearing sweatpants to bed cold.

I am not impressed. But, I shall not dwell.

Although our month didn’t include an exotic or exciting adventure, June was a pretty great month on the personal front.

After returning from our Croatia trip, we spent a bit of time resettling and relaxing after our vacation before jumping back into life whole hog.

As usual, work was hectic and all consuming, but let’s not dwell on that because well, everyone works and it’s not really the most fun thing to talk about. Instead, let’s focus on what I got up to on those off hours. Those few precious hours during the week where I wasn’t working, eating or sleeping.

Petite Adventures Month in Review: May 2017

For months, I looked forward to our vacation in Croatia. It would be our reward for hard work, long hours, and for surviving our first British winter. For weeks I longed for it, planned for it and dreamed about it, and now, here we are, already a week into June and almost two weeks since we returned. Can someone please tell me, where has the time gone?!

Oh well, moving on and looking back, our vacation in Croatia was in one word: AMAZING! Continue reading “Petite Adventures Month in Review: May 2017”

Well, so much for that robust month of creative content I had planned.

As I kicked off April, I was so full of hope and ideas for this blog, but very quickly I realised that I just couldn’t make it all happen; there just weren’t enough hours in the day to work two jobs, eat, sleep AND write, let alone have a social life.

So, unfortunately, writing for this blog – and pretty much everything that wasn’t work – fell by the wayside. When it came time to choose between sleeping and writing, sleeping always won out and I regret nothing. Alright, admittedly, there were a few times the choice was between Seinfeld reruns and writing, and writing still just didn’t win out. Again, I regret nothing.

Petite Adventures Month in Review: March 2017

Hello strangers!

Well, it’s that time again, time to say goodbye to yet another month. I know I say this every month, but I seriously can’t believe we’re already in April. Where is the time going?

Most months, I’m not really sure where the time has gone, but this last month I know exactly where I spent it: At work.

SERIOUSLY?! How is it March?

I feel like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year and in the blink of an eye we’re already a week into March. Not to sound too clichéd, but 2017 is just flying by!

But before I get too far ahead of myself, let’s take a look back at February. Continue reading “Petite Adventures Month in Review: February 2017”
