Well folks, as I sit here right now, right at this very moment, I find myself sitting in my ‘old’ bedroom with an empty shell of a bed. My wardrobe has no clothes in it, the bookcase is gone; it is quite literally me, my computer and my cat. Today I moved house and my oh my it is an odd thing. I, or shall I say we haven’t moved for a very long time, in fact the last time I did I was around fourteen so it’s a memory I don’t really recall too well.
It is strange seeing all your belongings being unceremoniously dumped into big brown cardboard boxes, mingling with everyone else’s things so that it becomes a sea of cardboard that you have to stand on tip toes to see behind. I’m the last to be picked up as I’m wanting to be with my cat when we travel, he’s a miserable old chap at the best of times but deep down he gets quite scared so I hope he appreciates me being there with him. I’m already prepared for the constant wailing that will be coming from the back of the car seat whilst he is in his basket, he associates it with the vets and he hates that place let me tell you!
What else has been going on lately? Well, I’m rolling up to reading week on my course which is something I’m looking forward to. I have so much work to catch up on that whilst most students will relish reading week for a week long lie in I will be that student with her books out trying to comprehend as to why I chose to study the GDL full time; I must be mad.
At the moment I’m reading The Book of You by Claire Kendal, which is just OK yet it isn’t something that I have really enjoyed, having said that it has been quite different to anything I have read before. I have also had a new phone in the last few months which was a rather long time coming. I crossed over to the dark side and put aside my beloved Samsung Galaxy for an iPhone 5S, of which I have to say that so far I absolutely love it! Only a few weeks ago I was kindly contacted by Iconemesis who asked me if I’d like to try one of their cases. The email popped into my inbox within hours of me purchasing another case so now I have two! After a little bit of deliberation I chose (with my mum in mind as she loves coffee) the Lily X Coffee design which I think looks absolutely gorgeous. The illustrations are incredibly pretty and feature various beverages in soft water colour designs.
I’ve also being loving the RBS 6 Nations! I apologise now if you follow me on twitter as I do tend to tweet about that, Tennis and Formula One a lot. I sometimes feel like one of the only bloggers who shows an interest (I’m obsessed really) in these sports so if you’re out there then let me know!
Oh and last but not least I have had some amazing news! Some of you may have seen my entry last week to the #MySmileMatters competition which was to win invisalign treatment courtesy of Oasis Dental Care. I’m so delighted to say, let alone type that I was chosen as the winner and will hopefully be starting the process relatively soon. Thank you so much to those that left me such lovely and supportive comments, it was so lovely to read them.
So I think that’s about everything really. What have you been up to lately?
