Tea and Cakes

Today, I caught the bus into town and met up with my mum and grandma for tea and cakes (or in my case, hot chocolate and a panini). For my course, we recently finished two modules so at the moment we’ve got hardly any lectures – I’ve got 6 hours and a lab every week, …

The Big Food Shop

Yesterday was a very sunny ‘looked like it was warmer than it was’ day, so naturally my whole block spent it outside in shorts and t-shirts playing frisbee and eating doritos. Unfortunately, when I woke up this morning I discovered that I must have been way to vigorous with my frisbee-ing as my back feels …

Post

If there’s one thing that can turn a bad day upside down, it’s going to the mini letterboxes at the end of our corridor and finding a pretty little envelope with my name written on it. I just LOVE getting post (as long as it’s not something boring or something requiring money). It’s so much …

Bits and Bobs

At the moment, my life seems very boring – there’s just nothing going on! The most I can tell you about my day today is that the weather was really warm, but I couldn’t find a reason to go outside other than to make the short walk to the swimming pool. I swam fifty lengths …

Pat a Cake, Pat a Cake

So, today was meant to be a super productive day. I was going to wake up quite early, finish a lab report, go to a lecture and then come back and do some more work. Ha ha ha. I was forced to reconsider the waking up early bit when six incredibly drunk people decided to …

Pancake Day

Today was one of my favourite days of the year. What a fantastic idea to allocate an entire day for eating pancakes! I’ve always loved them and so it was only natural to go to my friends’ place and spend two and a half hours making, assembling and eating pancakes. As you can see, I …

Busy, Busy, Busy

I had such a good time at home this weekend, but boy were we busy! We were on the go the whole time and I took about a million photos. On Saturday morning, we went paddling (that would be canoeing, not splashing around in a big puddle – although that sounds equally as fun!), then …

Home

This weekend, I don’t have too much work to do so I thought I’d come home for a few days (I love being able to say that I can visit home pretty much whenever I want – it’s one of the main reasons I picked a uni so close to home). My mum picked me …

Lunch by the River

Yesterday, my mum came over and we went into town for the morning before meeting up with a family friend for lunch. The day started off a bit later than planned because the buses were against me. Usually there’s a constant stream of buses, so I arrived at 9:30 ready to meet my mum at …

My Poor Crocuses

Oh dear. The time has come to inform you of my poor attempts at keeping my crocuses alive. As I mentioned before, they didn’t have much hope of surviving due to the fact they were being kept in a hot, stuffy wardrobe compared to a “cool, dark and ventilated spot. Ideal temperature 5-10 degreesĀ Celsius”. Add …
