Time for the July/August update! You can read the other updates at the links below:
March/April (+ Baking Inspiration): https://livingseasonal.blogspot.com/2020/05/marchapril-update-baking-inspiration.html
In July we were still in lockdown but things were easing up. More places opened up and coronavirus cases had gone down overall. But in certain areas they had spiked, so some local lockdowns were introduced. From 24th July face coverings were made mandatory in shops and supermarkets in England. (They were already mandatory on public transport.)

Read: What Katy Did Next by Susan Coolidge (the sequels to What Katy Did and What Katy Did At School; the edition I have is the last 2 books in 1 volume), Happy Ever After trilogy by Adele Geras (one of my favourites).
Also libraries re-opened so I read some new books! A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan, The Glovemaker by Ann Weisgarber and The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. Bought a couple of non-fiction books as well, Manifest Now by Idil Ahmed and Manifest Like Bliss by Jasmine Lipska (Law of Attraction).
Played: Re-played Tomb Raider: Legend on PS2 (been playing on and off).
Links I found useful in July and August:

I've also been enjoying watching lifestyle videos on Brianna K's YouTube channel. I'm finding watching meal prep and cleaning videos relaxing for some reason! lol. Here's her channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0uHB4d6u0jIJSgPC3WzBFw
I also took part in a free Overcome Your Manifestation Blocks challenge run by Diana of The Chic Life, which was fun. Check out her site here: https://thechiclife.com/
