How to Make the Most of August

how to make the most of august

We are over a full week into August now and the end of summer is in sight. For many I am sure it passed by so quickly you barely feel like you had a chance to properly enjoy it! The very typically British lack of sunshine no doubt had a lot to do with that.

Well, sun or no sun, we’ve put together a few tips to help you make the most of summer’s final month and perhaps it won’t feel like you’re waving goodbye to summer far too soon…


Start a Summer Scrapbook

In our technology driven culture, print photos are very much beginning to feel like a thing of the past. As long as the photos are up on Facebook or Instagram that’s all that seems to matter nowadays.

However, there is no denying that having physical copies of your memories to treasure still holds a charm that doesn’t quite match a few likes on Instagram. What better way to preserve summer 2015 than through a scrapbook of your favourite days out, holiday photos ad time spent with loved ones? Keep all the small trinkets, receipts and tickets collected over summer especially to stick into it.


A Day Out Somewhere New

If you feel like this summer has passed by you in a blur and you haven’t got to do half the things you had planned, remember that it isn’t too late. Make the most of the last days of summer by making new memories. Why not have a day out somewhere you’ve always wanted to go with your loved ones? All you have to do is make time for it…



Whether those good intentions of sitting out in your garden reading in the sun all summer long worked out for you or not, you can still make your garden into your own little retreat.

If you can get a rare dry day, make the most of it by getting out into the garden and making it sorted for the final days of summer and start of Autumn? Soon enough it will be too cold to even entertain the idea of stepping into the garden.

Try planting flowers such as poppies, cornflowers and Larkspur as they will provide earlier flowers for next year. There are also plenty of hardy fruit and veg you can plant such as radishes, salad leaves and fast maturing carrots.


A Long Evening Walk

A very simple but effective way of making time for yourself to unwind after a long day but also to enjoy the final summer days no matter how un-summery they might be.
