A Nostalgic Glance back at July 2017

July 2017 you were good to me, I loved you for all of these simple little reasons…

  • I visited my Mama who lives in Florida for 2 weeks…

  • My boy of 15 took his first solo, long haul flight (proud mama speaking) and joined us for the second week.

  • There was shopping, lots of shopping American style. How can anyone not enjoy shopping when the equivalent of our ‘High Street’ looks like this?

  • On the subject of shopping, I managed to find a much longed for pair of Nike Air Force 1’s (in Navy no less, oh la la..) and at a very reasonable price. They are now safely tucked away for the Autumn.

  • We went for a walk around the lake in Downtown Orlando not far from my Mum’s house. Whilst strolling along we spotted this swan trying to operate the bird feeder (but he didn’t have a 25c coin) Oh how we laughed, then when I popped in a coin that Mum donated, the swan grabbed my arm.

He/she was a feisty but very clever little bugger.

 

  • I lived in shorts…
