Well I’m not going to lie, I’m exhausted today! It’s been a busy(ish) week. How are you? Been up to much this week?
Sunday was a quiet day of revision and settling back into life at the flat. This did of course involve figuring out where a few things had “hidden themselves” and trying to discover the source of the weird smell… Yes guys, you do need to bleach the bin to remove the mould.
Monday involved writing 2 blog posts, taking part in Twitter chats, and yet more revision. New month at the start of a new week – the organised side of me was celebrating! Did I claim to have been busy? Whoops…
On Tuesday, however, I had a lot of last minute cramming before my exam at 2:30. After it, I came back and settled into more revision and a few Twitter chats – what can I say, they’re so much fun!
Wednesday morning was another exam and that was a bit of a disaster. I came back to the flat and was quite upset when I got a message from Pablo (his chosen blog code name) asking to go to Edinburgh for the day. I’m so glad he did! We hadn’t seen each other since the middle of May so it was great to catch up over lunch before finding ourselves mixed into the start of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! We saw 3 great shows and it really cheered me up. Even when life sucks you can find a reason to smile, I certainly did!
Thursday I got up early to do more revision in the morning to allow myself time to clean the flat before Rachel arrived that evening. I scrubbed the kitchen, bathed the bathroom in bleach, and gave my bedroom a quick go-over to try and make it look decent. Of course it would’ve helped if I’d taken the boxes in my room to the bin but I felt they were acceptable considering a certain someone’s dishes being left by the sink for 4 days without having been washed. Rachel arrived and so we went for dinner in The Hill on byres road before coming back and watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It was a good day.
Finally it was the weekend and Friday saw us heading to Dundee to see our cousins before one heads to China for the year and another is starting boarding school in a few weeks. It was a busy day of talking and travelling and so I actually got starting Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Don’t worry, no spoilers here.
Yesterday, (Saturday) we took a drive to Edzell, a small village I went to probably about 14 years ago. We bought cupcakes, looked around the stalls, and watched a dog herd ducks around an arena – it was more fun than it sounds! After this, we took a drive to our old house in Forfar. It was strange driving into the street and seeing it all, everything looked smaller than we remember it being. I guess that’s what comes with growing up. We then took a detour into the town and found our favourite café from when we lived there and ordered our old order – a milkshake and a funny face biscuit!
We then went back to Dundee to get ready for a meal out together. It was a great meal at Papa Joe’s and the night was brilliant! Until Rachel cheated at Family Fortunes back at the house after dinner…
Today we arrived back in Glasgow where I did some more revision while Rachel read. We then had dinner and watching both parts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay. And that’s you up to date!
