So this is my penultimate post! The end is NIGHHHHHH
Which is a little dramatic but everything feels a bit crazy, I can’t believe it’s all coming to an end, or a new beginning I suppose.
I packed up my room/ house/ life and put it in a trailer on a very hot day – gruelling to say the least.
I only had a few things…
Ok I had twenty boxes, a freezer, a dining room table and a bathroom cabinet. But not the kitchen sink. What can I say? 4 years of a degree you do accumulate things. and I’m not exactly one for travelling light.
Since I have been home I have been doing a lot of unpacking, sorting and throwing stuff out. Because there isn’t space in my room for everything I have had to decide what I want to keep and what can be given to charity etc. It’s been like a massive game of tetris but everything is finally clear. Plus my massive Uni mattress topper on my home bed means bedtime is now reminiscent of a scene from the Princess and the Pea.
Whilst at home I have been also doing a few fun things.
I saw my mum’s choir in concert:
Had my friend Marilyn to stay and went to a wedding:
Ok we didn’t wear these to the wedding, we went shopping and there was this charity shop that had wedding/prom/ formal dresses and we thought it would be funny to try some on! Especially as a lot of them were fabulously 80s. Marilyn and her lovely sister Sammy-Jo came to stay as Sammy-Jo was bridesmaid at a wedding in Bristol. We did plan to have a meal out but all our plans fell through thanks to restaurants failing at customer service so we ended up with takeaway pizza -_- – good job it only takes good company to make a mealtime fun!
I also made Pimm’s at home. And I really like fruit – so on the recipe where it said “plenty of fruit” this is what I did:
Thug life. One of your five a day in every glass 🙂 I have also been meeting up with friends at the pub too and fitting back in to life in Bristol.
Recently I have also been doing crochet whilst having an extended Disney and 80s movie marathon – so now my baby blanket is complete!
I started it when I was about 10 or 12 to make a baby blanket for a children’s charity, and now I can finally do it! But now I need a new project…
I also went to the cinema and saw this, well worth a watch:
Also this weekend I am seeing the Disney orchestra performing Pixar music at the Eden project 😀 😀 😀 Assuming it will be something like this:
They had a one-off concert at the Albert Hall a while back which sold out so when found out there was another concert in Cornwall I HAD TO GO. This also means I’m going down to Cornwall to see my extended family, staying with my Grandma. I can’t believe it was last summer I lived with her for my placement! Time flies. I am now a registered Dietitian, I can actually say I AM A DIETITIAN. Now I just need a job :O but I am enjoying having a bit of break first, I don’t know when I last did.
My last blog will be in a couple of weeks after graduation – so I’ll see you then 🙂
To infinity, and beyond!
