Another month gone…and hopefully, so has the colds, coughs and flu!

And the end of August gave us signs that Spring was on it’s way….and not a moment too soon!

All I want to do is throw open all the doors and windows and let the fresh air in!

The downside is that I have got bad hayfever….I have never had it this early before…not the best sign for the months ahead so I have stocked up on antihistamines…

Anyway, it is time yet again for a monthly rewind…what did the month of August include for Zinc Moon?

Monthly Rewind Aug

It started with some freezing weather….hail and frost..


I reviewed two magazines….Womankind and Flow Magazine


And reviewed two books….a fascinating book about ideas that changed the web, and a book all about the weather events in Geelong..

Weather Wonders of Geelong

I joined a library…mainly to borrow the Miss Fisher’s Murders series

I discovered Benefit They’re Real mascara and eye liner…still loving using them!

Benefit Eyeliner

We went to a game at the AFL International Cup

IC14 Mark

And took Mackie to his first game at the MCG….sadly our Cats lost…


We had two brunches….one at Oscars in Ballarat,  and another at All Things English in Mornington…

Yorkshire Tea

I discovered an app that aims to recreate using a vintage typewriter..

Hanx Writer

We went to a brass band contest….


And a brass band concert...

Darebin City Brass

We stayed in a fabulous house in Ballarat…the Retro House

living area

Found a vintage store that was a treasure trove…and a place I could have spent hours in…

That Little Vintage Shop

And went to another vintage market….

Ballarat Vintage

Stocked up on gloves, scarves and hats at the Creswick Woollen Mill


A new tea house was discovered….Impala & Peacock..


We experienced GreazeFest and saw some amazing cars…


The countdown to the Transplant Games has begun…my husband can hardly wait to compete!

The month finished with the most amazing concert….Queen and Adam Lambert….wow…just wow!

Queen and Adam Lambert

And my review of the concert has brought the most number of visitors and views to Zinc Moon…ever!

Maybe I should change careers, and become a concert reviewer!

And that is August over….bring on September and the sunshine!
