I don’t have a theme for this month other than maybe ‘August Birthday Month’ but I probably won’t stick with that.
Although, that being said, it was my birthday! I got a bunch of cool stuff and went out to dinner and ate a whole chicken’s worth of Fried Korean Chicken. Yum! I also had about 5 different types of cake over the course of a week.
On the same day I had a chat/interview about potentially moving into a new role at work and getting my contract renewed and they said yes! I started transitioning into a new role on the 1st of September and hope I do well there. It’s nice to finally feel appreciated from management… this basically never happens for me in the workplace.
I finally decided to buy an adults colouring book in August and it came on the 31st! There are some lovely pages and it’s quite compact and easy to carry around. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any pencils the day I bought it so couldn’t start my colouring in August. More about that in September I’m sure!
At the end of the month, one of my dinner plates cracked while in the microwave. I didn’t even realise it was possible but apparently it is caused by a small crack in the plate being filled with water and that water expanding, causing it to crack properly.
I really like the plates and was pretty sad to have one of them ruined by 90 seconds in the microwave. I decided to contact the company and see if they were able to send me out a replacement so I’d have a full set again. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to because the set I bought was discontinued so… they offered me a full new set of my choosing from their website! I decided on the above Square Diamond Set that retails for $160… I was so surprised! I never thought that would have been the response. They didn’t even ask me for proof of purchase or photos of the broken plate to prove I hadn’t just dropped it. Pretty amazing service.
That’s about all I have for August, in between there were trips to Cherry Beans Caffe, Goodberrys, cartons of Ben and Jerry’s to eat and episodes of Gravity Falls and Rick And Morty to enjoy!
