August 2018 Things

Birthday month again, with this year being a big one for Husband.  He’s still a young man to me.

Islay
This beautiful Scottish island was a dream.  I can’t wait to go back one day.

R.E.M.
Husband is a huge fan of the band R.E.M. who split up about 7 years ago, so there isn’t much new content for him to enjoy.  However, he started listening to the R U Talkin’ R.E.M. RE: Me Podcast a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been totally sucked into it!  I know a bit about the band, and have enjoyed learning more about their album tracks.  It also helps that Adam Scott is one of the hosts, and is adorably hilarious.  The podcast is so stupid, and they spend most of each episode not actually talking about R.E.M.

Marks and Spencer ice cream sandwiches
They are so ridiculously moorish – I’m obsessed.

Holiday planning
In a couple of months, we’re off to Texas for a few days and friends of Husband have very kindly offered to look after us for part of the trip, so we had a long video call with them one weekend to talk about our plans.  There’s a lot of fun things on the list – November can’t come quickly enough.  After our chat, we then went on to book a very exciting hotel for the rest of our Texan adventure which I am so looking forward to.

Birthday bath
For my birthday, I was treated to a couple of nights at the Hotel Du Vin in Bristol.  Bristol itself was an… interesting place, but the hotel was incredibly relaxing.  The best thing about it – the huge bathroom on the mezzanine floor, with a roll top bath.  After getting back from a birthday burger, I poured some of the L’Occitane toiletries into the bath and spent about an hour in there.  What a perfect way to end the day.
