wow! what an end to the month!
a quickly organised, last-minute trip to the barossa with bb for his work saw me spending yesterday relaxing and slowing down. as well as seeing some of the sights that the valley has to offer of course!
it's been lovely!

recapping august for a hot second, i think i had a fair crack at my goals. i finished up this hat, as well as my prototype (which still needs so much work it won't be seeing the light of day for another few months at least!), while bb's jumper project well and truly languished...
and the mending? well i introduced you to the garments, and i got them all repaired that same day! amazing what you can achieve when you stop procrastinating huh?
i'm loving having the two casual dresses back into rotation in my wardrobe.

the month started off strong with eating healthy, and not buying and eating random crap, but completely fell apart in the last week there...
it was much the same with the walking thing too, though on a week to week basis. i'd start the week off strong, getting in my 10k steps for the first two or three days, and then, by the end of the week my motivation would be completely gone!

and now for the month ahead... well i do actually have it together to start bb's jumper now. including ordering more yarn to be able to complete it! it's about 28074310 dye lots different though (not surprising since i bought the yarn so long ago!) so i'll be swapping between balls for pretty much the entire project. could get tedious...
there's also a pair of socks i'd like to finish up (there's still a looooong way to go on them) and i'd really love to get a few more squares onto the mitred square blanket i started last year. it's been very slow growing!

i've been easing myself back into gardening to start getting both the back and front yards ship-shape for the upcoming nuptials. spending just 5 minutes a day, a few times a week, is really making a whole lot of difference.
hopefully i can keep it up and everything will be looking smashing come december, without any big fits of panicked gardening needed. fingers crossed!

what does the month ahead look like for you? any big plans?
