It is September and we are in countdown mode for our trip to Spain next month.
I started the challenge of writing a sentence a day back in April and also continued in May and June. If you missed my posts for the last few months you can read them here A sentence a day
On the first week of each month, we link our posts up and can read what everyone has been up to.
In September my theme for the blog is ‘This time next year’ and is all about putting into place strategies to achieve your goals, dreams and to thrive. That means writing about not only my own aspirations, but introducing guest writers with their thoughts.
Writing a sentence a day for a month is short and sweet but can be a pertinent reminder of all the good things and perhaps not so good things that happen in life. This is my sixth month and it is really like keeping a diary. I just love the idea.
A sentence a day for September 2017

September 2 – Run with my Saturday Sister and then made a delicious slow cooked lamb shanks in red wine for dinner.
September 3 – Relaxing day at home and caught up on some blogging posts plus finally booked all of our accommodation for our trip to Spain and Italy next month.
September 4 – Liptember (read my post here) is an initiative focusing on Women’s Mental Health for the month of September. So I purchased my lipstick as my contribution and posted to Instagram during the month. At least I can laugh at myself for a good cause.
