July Resolutions recap and August Resolutions setting

I’m writing this August Resolutions post on a train down to Totnes to spend a weekend in Devon with the famdamily. I’m quite looking forward to it – this is effectively my ‘summer holiday’ with my family, and the next few weeks are going to be super busy, so some chill time will be appreciated!
