For My Own Entertainment

Had a mad few days....

Finally at Uni! All the months of build up and I'm finally here! It's quite exciting, but at the moment I'm absolutely knackered. Stayed in Saturday night and had pizza and drinks with the girls I'm living with, went out Sunday Evening, came back quite late, then had to be up at the crack of dawn today. Got my timetable and it's not too demanding....2 days a week pretty much for the next 12 weeks. Not too bad!

Had a bit of trouble getting on the net - you have to go onto the internet to register for the internet.... Obviously sorted now though.

It's now time for bed, another early morning awaits!

Busy busy!

It's been a bit full on recently, I'm constantly doing something! Spent a weekend down at my cousins new place in Wiltshire, during which we took the dog for a walk down the road and bumped into a lot of tourists and a pile of stones:

We went into Salisbury and saw the Cathedral, but just from the outside as we were poor, and they charge:

I've spent a lot of time with the kids (my cousins) recently, as they aren't back at school, which has been fun. Spent the day at a converted barn which is now a big indoor soft play and climbing area. Was nice and empty because everyone else is off learning elsewhere.

There have been birthday parties and days out galore, and it's not over yet! The littlun is 2 tomorrow, so we're having a little get together, then my uncle's birthday is Friday, so there will be another get together Thursday, and then.......dun dun dun!

Saturday! Moving to Uni! I can't wait. I'm so, so excited. I've been looking forward to it for an entire year now, and I'm 10 times more excited than when I was about to start at Queen Mary. Which was rubbish by the way, hence the new start.
Also on Saturday we're off to see Thomas the Tank Engine at the cinema. That's in the morning, and from there I'll be getting my stuff and moving on out. I'll literally be going from child to adult in the space of about an hour.

I'm so excited, I could eat a Crunchie right now!

I've been stripping today!

My nan is decorating her spare bedroom at the moment, and whilst stripping off the top layer of wallpaper, look what we found underneath! (I say 'we found', my nan did already know about it, what with it being the wallpaper she put up many years ago!)

And the linoleum floor:

Those two matching but different coloured wallpapers were in the same room, the pink on 2 opposite walls, the blue was on the other 2. I love it! I'd be pretty happy with that wallpaper in my room now!

*Shouts* BINGO!

Went to Bingo last night with mum, my best friend and her mum, and won the grand total of £32.50! "Wow", I hear you exclaim! "How do you intend to spend it? Not all in one shop I hope?" Alas not, mother paid for my books, so she got it all.

But that's ok, I'm sure she'll be lending it back to me in a few days, for I am properly skint!

I like Bingo, even if it is just a non-violent way of getting old ladies to hand over their pension. I hope when I'm old I can be the sort of old person who still plays Bingo, but has become the one who Shushes talking 'youngsters'!

Welcome to the world of blog?

Someone lovely told me they thought I should have a blog - so here it is. In all its blogging glory. Not much to report today, so I'll just leave you with a picture of my kitty cat, Wally.

Awwwwwwwwwwww ^_^
