JULY AND AUGUST: THE MADNESS IS OVER

The Summer is finally over and if you read my latest post about August, you will know how happy I am that it is finally September. Although work was rubbish, the rest of July and August was fairly good and very chilled.

BEST MOMENTS

A lovely night in Ayia Napa to celebrate our anniversary.

Camping for my birthday, Ash wasn’t too fond but I had a lovely time. A very relaxing way to celebrate turning 25.

Seeing the flamingos at Limassol Salt Lake  which we did not expect to actually find,

Finally getting to visit Adonis Baths which had been on my Cyprus bucket list since the start of season.

WORST MOMENTS

Just go and read that post about August…

FIRSTS

Parasailing. No rush to do it again, it’s cool but quite an underwhelming experience considering the cost.

Jetskiing. More of an adrenaline filled activity which I enjoyed.

Taking part in an official run. I don’t run casually never mind for an actual event but in July, we participated in the Paphos beer marathon.

My first ever massage which I was pretty nervous about but surprisingly enjoyed and have now had three.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I won the Customer at the Heart award at work for July as well as rep of the month for August. Difficult time of year but shows that I’m still great at my job even under difficult circumstances (if I do say so myself and toot my own horn).

WATCHING

Prison Break. Ash got me into and I love it. First and second season I thought were incredible but I am currently feeling a little disappointed by season three… tell me it gets better?

The Taking of Deborah Logan. Horror/thriller which is not usually my favourite movie genre but I really enjoyed the way this one played out.

READING

Harvesting The Heart by Jodi Picoult. I think I mentioned that I had started reading this book in my last monthly roundup. Jodi Picoult is one of my favourite authors but I always put off reading her books in favour of other ones as I know she will always be there if I run out of reading material. Her books are always controversial topics that really let you relate to the character under difficult circumstances which I love. Harvesting The Heart is all about a mother who walks out on her baby and husband in search of her own mother who abandoned her.

The Girls by. I’m only about a third of the way through this book but having a mild obsession with the 60’s, I’m finding the journey of Evie in a 60’s cult fascinating.

The Food Medic. In an effort to be more healthy, I have loved reading The Food Medic’s blog and recipes.

NEW EATS

Omikron Brunch, Paphos. Cute little place in the old town which has an amazing menu and whips up a banging brunch.

Embers, Paphos. Brand new for the Summer and located just off the hotel strip, Embers describe themselves as a Canadian restaurant. Their menu options are endless and the food is delicious. I opted for two starters; halloumi sticks with an orange and ginger marmalade with garlic prawns and both were amazing and super filling. Will definitely return!
