What is one to say about June? The time of perfect young summer, the fulfilment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

We all need something to get excited about - so what is making you excited at the moment?

I am excited about the fact that I am picking up my new car in just 3 hours - and I can't wait!

What about you? What's the most exciting thing that you're looking forward to at the moment?

    I remember picking up my first brand new car (I'd had a lot of secondhand cars before). I had to pick it up from a showroom in central London and drive it out to Hertford. It was the rush hour and I wasn't familiar with the route, so kept getting it wrong. It was a nightmare as it was the rush hour too.

    I can fully understand what the feels like as I had the same experience when driving mine home on Friday! But I am much more used to it now, and I love it.

    I'm now getting excited about leaving for Kathmandu on Tuesday. I was feeling a bit reluctant to go as I'm enjoying Nice so much but as soon as I started contacting my friends in Kathmandu and planning my onward travels to Thailand and Vietnam, my feet are feeling very itchy again!

    It must be exciting to be at the planning stage when you're going to a new place. All of the possibilities ahead of you for what you're going to do!
