June


I love June. 

It is filled with roses blooming and birthdays and the longest day and cake. 
My mum's name is June. June Rose in fact. Her birthday is in June, and mine, and the husbands. 
lots of birthday cake needed then.

according to my calendar we must also celebrate 
extreme enthusiasm day - for cake?
wild abandon day - reckless cake eating?
treat your body like a temple day - an hour without cake?
treat your body like a cake machine day - if you insist!

so there we have it. June is clearly my favourite month. what's yours?

  1. It would have to be May although May just past was a bit of a bummer. I can recommend rolling down a grassy slope. It is fun but the children find it a bit embarassing. Leaping of a zip glide is good fun, too. Enjoy all the cake! x

    1. I was going to say the very same thing! Usually May (roses! my birthday!), but this one was sort of eh. Tess, your calendar sounds fab -- I think I need it. Not so sure about the mini mantra. Pontificating? Wearing flip flops (I HATE having something rubbing between my toes)? Still, the paddling and pottering and stargazing and wondering all sound pretty solid. Enjoy! xxx

  3. I try not to think about which is my favourite month because I might get all tragic when it is over but I do have a fondness for March - lambs! primroses! chocolate! I think that I will aspire to fitting mini-loveliness into every day in June. Get going on those birthday cakes.

  5. I like it when it starts to turn colder and the leaves are turning so although I don't have a favourite month if pushed I would say September. It is the time when the boots come out, when you know it is going to get colder and the cardigans get heavier with long sleeves. And as it is getting colder you need to ensure you fend off colds..... cake would be good for that.
    I like the idea of this June though, when it said 'roll down something' for some reason trousers came to mind.... maybe I was thinking waistbands.....cake......urgh!

  6. I'm coming round to June after reading your post. National cake appreciating month? Well, a week wouldn't be long enough would it? J x

  9. I love June too! It's finally warm. The leaves and blossoms are finally out. (I live in Canada) The days are long. Plus, it will soon be my birthday. Many good reasons! :-)

  10. What a delight to celebrate all of those birthdays...and with all of that cake. My mother's name was May. I always giggled at the story she told about when she was in high school and there was a classmate who's name was May June. The dubbed her May June Almost July.
    I think I'll pass on the rolling down something as the last time I did that, I fractured my leg!
    Best of June to you.

  11. June sounds good round your neck of the woods! And perhaps the treat your body like a temple day could be a day when you only eat carrot cake, or one of those chocolate cakes with grated courgette perhaps? It's definitely one of my favourite months, along with July and August. In some ways I prefer those later 2 months since they're full blown holiday time, but then in June I love the anticipation of the holiday time.

  12. Ah yes, I love June too. Birthday cake will be baked here this week, and seven candles found from the birthday cake bits and bobs tin. The excitement is palpable. No flipflops yet though... Wishing you and yours a wonderful month. CJ xx

  14. Hey Tess,
    I like June. And July. August gets too packed in St Ives, but you can find a quiet place on the beach in June. Apart from when it's raining. Which it has all day.

  15. Is there any other way to eat cake? If there is, I don't want to know. I hope you have a wonderful summer.

  16. I hope that you have a great June with a lot of reckless cake eating! After all, there is your Mum's birthday so that surely needs lots of cake!!! xx

  17. Cake seems to play a big part in your life - not a bad thing.

  18. Spring is birthday season in our family, so I like May, but am also very found of September, which always makes me feel nostalgic for the summer just gone, and the first flutter of excitement for Christmas! I love that you have kept on sharing your calendar with us every month Tess X

  19. oh so many celebrations (and associated cakes!) ahead. and I need your calendar if it comes bearing so many cake-based appointments xx

  20. Lots of cake on the forecast then - let's hope we get some sunshine too! I'm not sure if I have a favourite month but I'm definitely more of a summer girl than a winter one. Judy.

  21. I like your June ambitions! I shall adopt some of them.

  22. I LOVE how you relate everything to CAKE -- you're my kind of girl!!! And I'm thinking you need to come and visit me. It would count as your visit three places you've never been -- in fact, we could hit up all three -- how many of your friends have been to nowhereville in the middle of the US??? ;-D

  25. I am very much liking your interpretation of the calendar here. As you know I have the same one and I have just crossed out mini-lovliness - last line in your picture - and written in cake.
