Photo a Day 2015: July

Cider, smoked garlic, jam and a massive mushroom from Dart's Farm, Exeter

July started with a bit of a heatwave in parts of the country.  I was lucky enough to escape the ridiculous temperatures as I was in Devon where it was a lot cooler.  The rest of the month just went downhill - rain, clouds and chilly enough at some points to consider turning the heating on.  Ridiculous!
July was pretty exciting for me as I bought a new car!  Not "new new", just a little newer and less clunky/dented that my previous one.  I didn't even venture into trying a new make or model, it's almost identical to my old Peugeot 206 but a slightly different colour and back doors!  Yep, I really know how to live on the edge!

The end of the month wasn't so fantastic unfortunately.  My sinuses went mental and I had a Crohn's flare up so completely lost my appetite which for someone who loves food as much as me was extremely frustrating!

Earworm of the month: Sometimes at work when I need to get stuff done without distraction I plug myself in to YouTube and work my way through various playlists.  My go-to genre at the moment transports me back to my teen years - Britpop (I'm still working on it but here's my playlist so far)!

Anyhoot, on my musical travels I came across "We're Going to Miss You" by James.  I've been a fan of a couple of their songs but found this to be just fantastic and had it on loop for aaaaages!

Film of the month: "Pitch Perfect" - I make no secret of loving a good "girly" film (Bridesmaids, Bridget Jones, Legally Blonde, etc) so have no idea why in the 3 years since it was released I've not watched Pitch Perfect!  To be honest, I think it's because I thought it was going to be too much singing for me.  Yes, there was singing but it was really, really good!  Overall it was a feel good comedy and I will most certainly be watching Pitch Perfect 2!

Tv of the month: "Homeland" - why oh why did I not watch this when it was first out?!  After pretty much binge-watching seasons 1 and 2 I am hooked.  The plot has twists and turns and is totally gripping and Claire Danes and Damain Lewis are brilliant together!

Favourite food of the month: John West steam pots - I've been trying to eat pretty mild/plain/simple food to give my insides a bit of a rest (thanks, Crohn's!) and these little pots have really helped!  Easy to make and gentle on my stomach but still really tasty and filling!
