A White Christmas (kinda)

It’s been two weeks since Christmas holidays have started but I have only spent 3 days in Nottingham. What have I been up to you might ask? Well for starters the Sunday after term ended I headed down to London just as an escape from Nottingham. As much as I love this little city I …

Robin Hood lovin’

Last week, I unleashed my inner Maid Marian (she’s inside us all) and excitedly prepared to be part of one Notts nightclub’s Guinness World Record attempt to get as many Robin Hoods in the room as possible. Sadly, I still remain record-less- but I did learn the important lesson of not losing your friends on …

Christmas Capers

I have succumbed to Christmas cheer. As the date on my phone, ticked over or rather changed, to the 1st December the countdown to Christmas was on.

7 Days

Om nom nom When it’s really cold I eat a lot more than I need to. In the past 6 days, I’ve had waffles with golden syrup pretty much every morning (and some evenings), about 7 pork sausages, Chinese take-out twice, and a lot of crisps/sweets. I don’t know what it is about the cold …

Winter adjustment

Winter brings the craziest things Walking around campus last week I noticed the funniest things. With only 4 weeks left (sorry, that’s a scary thought I know) and deadlines breathing down our necks like there’s no tomorrow, it’s easy to walk around campus with your blinkers on, not noticing the most peculiar behaviour. Yet, out …
