Sentence a day: May edition

Midweek confessions

Lindsay often shares a post like this and I love reading them.  You sum up a month with a sentence (sometimes more) per day.  It is like a snapshot of your month for everyone to see.  So here is my May:

Tuesday 1st May 2018: Public holiday!  Went to Langebaan for a long cycle – I rode 36 km’s – longest cycle ever.  Delicious brunch at Ginja Beanz afterwards.

Wednesday 2nd May 2018:  Sore throat (again).

Thursday 3rd May 2018:  Very long day – cannot wait for the weekend.

Friday 4th May 2018:  Sushi for dinner – great start to the weekend.

Saturday 5th May 2018:  Had breakfast with my Aunt.  We had a lovely time catching up. Then hubby and I went to Specialised and hubby got cycling shoes and I got new shorts and a jacket.

Sunday 6th May 2018: Relaxing day.  Went to Franschhoek for a drive and then later in the evening we had dinner at Cattle Baron.

Monday 7th May 2018:  Tried to find mountain biking shoes in my size after work – mission impossible!

Tuesday 8th May 2018:  Treated myself to Clinique goodies after work.

Wednesday 9th May 2018:  Sore throat. Stayed home and got lots of sleep.

Thursday 10th May 2018:  Same as the above.

Friday 11th May 2018:  Feeling better.  Finally found cycling shoes that don’t have to clip in.

Saturday 12th May 2018:  Amazing adventure to see the Quiver Trees in the Northern Cape.  Got up and was on the road by 2:00am and had a fantastic time.  Travelled 850 km’s – quite a day trip!

Sunday 13th May 2018:  Woke up exhausted!  Took it easy while hubby went for a cycle and then in the afternoon I managed a 4km run.

Monday 14th May 2018:  Skipped gym and had a chilled evening after work.

Tuesday 15th May 2018:  Went for a run at the gym, grocery shopping, laundry, dinner, Masterchef Australia and bed!

Wednesday 16th May 2018:  Weather was really pleasant and after work we sat in the garden enjoying a crisp drink.

Thursday 17th May 2018:  Is it Friday yet?  Just checking.

Friday 18th May 2018:  Sushi for dinner – hooray!

Saturday 19th May 2018:  Went to Langebaan, had brunch at Ginga Beanz and cycled for 40 km’s.  Speed was less than my last cycle but it was the longest distance I’ve done.

Sunday 20th May 2018:  Really feeling yesterdays cycle! Went for a drive in the afternoon and stopped for a milktart on the way home.

Monday 21st May 2018:  Very long day.  Went to get dinner after work and just chilled on the couch with “My Kitchen Rules Australia” and the leftover milktart for dessert!

Tuesday 22nd May 2018:  Spontaneous date night with my love at one of our favourite restaurants.  I love Cattle Baron.

Wednesday 23rd May 2018:  Did a massive clean after work, did laundry, caught up on blogs while the floors dried and had a healthy dinner.

Thursday 24th May 2018:  Ended an hour early and it was awesome.  Beat the traffic and came home, showered, got under blankets on the couch and watched a movie with hubby.  Bliss.

Friday 25th May 2018:  We celebrated Africa Day at work.  Before lunch we were treated to lots of dishes prepared by colleagues and it was delicious.

Saturday 26th May 2018:  We went back to photograph the Quiver Trees.  Weather was better which was great.  Drove back and had an early dinner at Cattle Baron.

Sunday 27th May 2018:  I blame lack of sleep for my very bad mood today!  Managed a 4km run though.

Monday 28th May 2018:  Such a sore stomach.  Stayed home and took it easy.

Tuesday 29th May 2018:  Feeling loads better and back at work.

Wednesday 30th May 2018:  Super long day.  Treated ourselves to dinner out.

Thursday 31st May 2018:  Rain and lots of it!  Came home, showered and warmed up before catching up on some serious TV time. Bliss.

    • Thank you Lauren. I find sometimes just getting enough rest is the best way to speed up recovery when not feeling well.


  1. Love these sentence-a-day journals. I handwrite a sentence a day in my planner and absolutely love to look back on previous years. So interesting to me!


    • I’m looking for a new planner and love the idea of a sentence a day section!


  2. This is such a great personal/ writing challenge. I love this! It is amazing because I don’t even remember what I ate yesterday and will soon forget what I even did the whole day. So this is just awesome. I also love how your days alternate, as in some days you are sick and some days you are productive which really shows that in life you have your good and bad days. This is truly amazing 🙂


    • Thank you 🙂 I got the idea from Lindsay – she does this each month.
      I keep a task on the pc and update it each morning (with the previous days happenings). If I had to do it in one go, I’d forget so many details but this way works so well.


  3. Awww this was fun to read! I always love to see what’s going on with some of my favorite bloggers and ❤ when Lindsay shares these kinds of posts. May have to participate!

    I’m so glad you were able to find cycling shoes finally! And yay for the quiver trees and sushi and backyard eats. I swear I could eat sushi every day of my life and I’d never get sick of it!


    • Thanks so much ❤ Lindsay gave me the idea and it is fun looking back on a snapshot of the previous month.
      I was thrilled to find those cycling shoes. I'd looked everywhere! Totally agree about the sushi – I can never get enough.


  4. Such a fun post! I should really give this a try sometime! Sounds like you were under the weather a bit in May, but it also sounds like you still did a lot of good and fun things too! I’m glad you have been getting more rain as I’m sure that helps with the water situation. If you do this again for June I’ll look forward to reading it!


    • You should try it Beth – lots of fun to put together and to look back on 🙂

      We are SO grateful for the rain – I look at the weather websites daily and we are so happy when rain is predicted. Looks like more is on the way on Thursday.


  5. I love this! What a great way to record your month. Sorry to hear that you weren’t feeling well for some of the month. Here’s to a lovely June! 🙂


    • Thank you Mia – it is a fun way to take a snapshot of the month.
      I’m hoping for less sore throats and more cycling in June 🙂


  6. Love reading these. May got away on me and I’m debating on just giving up for May and get on track for June’s sentence a day that goes live on July 5th.

    Hope you’re well love. Xo


    • Look forward to reading yours next month 🙂 Hope you are having a good week so far – so glad Friday is around the corner xoxo
