Photo Diary | July 2016

I'm sorry it's been so quiet on the blog over the last few weeks. My rheumatologist has put me on a new anti-inflammatory drug that has made me feel pretty sick lately. so I've not felt up to blogging much, and I haven't been able to take blog photos in ages. I'm finally feeling well again, so I think my body has finally got used to the new medication... although, I have to increase the dosage again next week so that could set me back again. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

So, I'm a few days late in posting my photo diary for July. I'd call it an Instagram round-up, but I didn't manage to share them all as the app hasn't been working properly on my phone for weeks. Instagram Beta is shit. I guess it doesn't matter too much as I didn't get up to that much in July. I only left the house a few times. I turned another year older, I took a birthday trip to The Cotswold Wildlife Park, I hung out at home with the puppy, read, cross-stitched, and paid a visit to Bicester Village. That's about it. Anyhow, here's July in photos.

  1. Don't apologise for not posting. You can't help it. You've had some nice moments this month! I saw the Cath Kidston brooch in person but I didn't really like it as much as I thought I might have done. Shame. Hope your pill adjustment doesn't cause you issues!

  2. New medication can really mess with you, even if its the best thing long term. I'm glad you had some fun birthday times this month xo
