Call Me Monthly | September


I'm gonna do that blogger cliche thing by firstly apologising for being such a cliche, then proceeding to marvel at how quickly the time is going. I suppose that must just be life eh? September does seem to have flown by; it was the month I thought I had my mojo back, yet a month in which I still managed to feel like I had a zillion things whirring in my brain and no time in which to address any of them. There's always October right? 

R E A D I N G  |  I'm pretty chuffed that I managed to read a whole other book this month especially as it was such a long one, but I had another fortunate train journey which allowed me to switch off and just read. I think I should probably take the train more often because I hardly ever allow myself time to read at home. I read The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley. It's the first in a series about six adopted sisters (yes six, that wasn't a typo) and follows each of their back stories. I was a bit unsure at first, but got totally hooked about halfway through and sped through the rest so now can't wait to read the others.

W A T C H I N G  |  Thank goodness that Love Island Australia has finished because I can now once again have my life back. Apart from that, we watched Bodyguard and realised how frustrating it is to have to watch something in real TV time rather than being able to binge watch it whenever we want, but it was excellent. I've also just started (I say just started, but I'm already five episodes in) Killing Eve, which I think I'm enjoying even more than Bodyguard so would v much recommend.

L I S T E N I N G  |  I've had Arctic Monkeys on repeat all month and on Friday I went to see them in Newcastle. They were absolutely incredible, I'm still on an absolute high, but also incredibly sad that it's all over (I was sad about it being over before it had even started to be fair).

E A T I N G  |  I'm slowly getting used to life as a veggie and I've experimented a bit more this month with things like sweet potato chilli and different kinds of vegetarian curry. I definitely still have much more to learn in terms of making sure I'm getting all the right foods, but I'd say I'm doing OK for a beginner!

D O I N G  |  I had the opportunity to do something a little bit different at work this month (I made a lil' stop motion for social media) and it made me realise that despite enjoying my day job, there's so much more that I'd love to still do. I just need to work out how it's physically and mentally possible to fit anything else in...

What did you get up to in September?

  1. Ahh I saw Arctic Monkeys live in August and they were SO, SO good! Definitely one of the best gigs I've been to for a very long while.

    Also, sweet potato chilli is one of my favourite veggie dishes too! Another good one is burrito bowls with lots of guacamole on top - yum! x
