July has always meant summer to me; school holidays, trips to California, and later beer gardens and picnics. Moving to Sydney literally turned my world upside down (or maybe the right way up) and I am slowly getting used to the fact that July now means winter.
We started the month by buying a new Mini Cooper S to share. Sporty enough for him and fun enough for me.
