The past month - July 2012

The past month seems to have flown by as we have been so busy.
We started the month with news that Pete had been made redundant without warning. Bucking the trend and considering none of his colleagues have even found interviews, Pete starts a new job in a few weeks time.  He's been lucky, but it's great news.  There are plenty of people struggling to find work, so we appreciate how lucky we are.
I shared two more Olympic hopefuls in the days leading up to the opening of the games with Adam Gemeli and Sam Oldham featuring.
Sky Sports presenter Alex Payne featured showing off his newly acquired muscles.
I got a bit deep and shared a list of the items I thought can lead to happiness - I will be revisiting this shortly.  Your thoughts on this topic are gratefully received.  I opened up to you in other ways, such as coming clean that I am a music snob and proud of it!
Speaking of music, I kicked off my 8 Desert Island Discs choices this month - plenty more to follow on this topic over the next few weeks.

And more music... we went to the local World Music festival (day one and day two) and had a fun, but muddy, weekend.  We now know that numbers were well down on last year, but 21,000 still turned up to beat the weather.
We eventually saw the Olympic flame, as did thousands of others in a small town and millions around the UK. 
In the past weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed two Olympics events and today I am still feeling the effects of insufficient quality sleep!
