It’s 8 am on a Saturday here and it feels like I’ve had a lie-in. My university self would be so confused. I’ve decamped to the living room with my blanket and a cup of tea (a smoky Russian loose leaf tea situation) and there’s pain au chocolat in the oven again.

So apparently, I’m going for monthly updates at the moment. Oops. Oh well. August has passed in a blur of getting ready for my first adult job, and by getting ready I mean getting my fill of sleepy days wandering around in pjs.

It’s time for a dash of a Stash Dash update! I am heading off to the sun though according to the forecast it is going to rain actually but that is also fine by me. I shall have my knitting, a few good books and a chance to wander a new city.
June is a travel month.
