starting back at uni has been (as always) crazy busy and full of alsorts of fun ... :)
drama society has kicked off big stylee this year and has a huge response from freshers and non freshers alike
my house is fine and apart from a few teething problems we're settled in ok (apart from the damp)
working at lush is good and bad .... loads of the girls had their purses stole yesterday by a random person who went upstairs *shocking*
what else what else> I've sent out letters to karin and Igla .... :)
Heylo .... so I'm back from Romania (and only on the new for a few minutes before I head out for a family get together type thing).
It was amazing .... so much fun but so heartbreaking at the same time! There were thousands of photo's taken over the 2 weeks ... so I'll upload some maybe tomorrow :) Possibily the cutest kids ever! I really wanted to stay there and look after them though!
Lexi and Erika I recieved your letters :) Lexi ... yours was ripped open down the side again ... I recieved the letters, 2 teabags and some notepaper ... was that all you put in or has stuff been stolen? :( Silly postman!
I've got a couple more days at home and then I move into my new house in York .. so I'll be sure to post my new address in the next couple of days.
How are you all? Anything exciting happened whilst I've been away?
Big love xxx
Just to let you all know ... I have no internet at the moment (had to get it cut off so that I wasn't paying for it when I'm not living in my house anymore). So if I don't comment, or respond to your comments .... sorry in advance :)
Urgh .. I hate the Uni library .. the computers are soooo slow and they all use internet explorer which, as any good geeky girl will know, is nothing in comparison to the joy that is Firefox *hugs her laptop*
So, I hear you cry, what have you been doing with yourself whilst you've been internetless Miss Emily. Well ... mainly working (oh the joy!). Also:
- being taken out for lunch by my lovely friend Rosey to cheer me up on a rather stressful day :)
- meeting up with my friend Vanessa for dinner and then going to watch Shakespeare's "As you like it" in the Minster Gardens (and also freezing to death because it was bloody cold!!)
- being kept awake until stupid o clock 2 nights in a row ... night 1 because of the return of the Brazilians and night 2 because of yet another party right outside my window (pretty much)
- recieving lovely mail from Ilga and Kaatje which made me smile lots and lots :)
- eating lots of crap and not really looking after myself very well *naughty emily*
- contemplating when I'm going to have the chance to do all the things that I have to do before I move out!!!
So lots and nothing at all :)
I actually have a day off today .... which is pure joy ... although my shifts over the next week and a half actually are ridiculous. But hey ho nevermind.
I went to to a bbq last night where I played team chess .... and won! And I won scrabble (which I played against my friend Peter in the Starbucks in Boarders) :) So a fun day of boardgames for me. And yesterday we had a lock in at work where we had to scrub the floor.
Has anyone heard The Puppini Sisters yet? I love them ... because I was obviously born into the wrong era. :) So much loveliness.
But in other news I had a lot of fun buying things from this shop (www.blossomandwalker.co.uk) and also from Whittards in their sale. I managed to pick up an Alice in Wonderland teapot and also handmade biscuits in an Alice in Wonderland tin (amongst other things). So that made me very happy indeed :) I'm currently trying to make sure that my room in my new house will a) be beautiful and b) be organised. My room this year was so unorganised (I never actually finished unpacking all my stuff) and it go to messy and cluttered and full of stuff which had no home. So I'm starting early and making sure that everything will have a home and that everything will be pretty as well :) Storing things in brown cardboard boxes is soooo not a good look!
Karin, I haven't sent your letter yet, mainly because I haven't actually had a chance. All my free time has been after the Post Office is open, and trying to get there on lunch breaks is just silliness, so I shall post it tomorrow hopefully :)
