Happy Bank Holiday

Boy am I glad that this is a long weekend. It's really nice to recharge, it's been a long half term at school, and I'm in university for all of the week that everyone else gets off as a holiday. If you've been stalking me (and if you are then please come out and say hello... I'd welcome the company! you'll have noticed the progress bars on my stuff I'm knitting have been creeping up quite nicely this weekend.
Todays to do list mostly consists of the cleaning I meant to do on Saturday and didn't get round to! Shouldn't take long, and then I am going to spend the day relaxing, and doing more knitting. I was out teaching climbing all day yesterday so the house is a bit of a bombsite as I just dumped stuff when I came in yesterday and didn't tidy up. I'm making the most of this as I have 1 month eft of living by myself. Part of me is glad, these last 6 months have got slightly lonely, but I have enjoyed being able to do everything when I want to do it. After all, if I don't want to do the washing up it's not as if anyone is going to moan about them sitting on the side for the day!
I'm really enjoying NaComLeavMo, it's been great to visit some other blogs, and has actually made me try and write posts more often!


  1. I just love NaCommLeavMo!! I am reading about many amazing life journeys.

    Enjoy your holiday and peace.

  5. Visiting from NaCommLeavMo, enjoy your day off!

  6. NaComLeavMo is awesome isn't it? I've already read great blogs. I totally chose biology over physics as well - although I love math, torque was not my strong suit. Must do work so will come and finish comment later! looking forward to reading more!

  7. Not from NaCommLeaveMo... just the average stalker. I've been working hard all day ready [hmmm not sure thats true] for my exam in the morning. So enjoy relaxing I wish I could.

  8. Hi Katie!

    Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I'm glad I found your site.

    Before I started law school, I lived in London for a year and I am a huge fan of Englad. Spent some time in the midlands, too (Wolverhampton, the Lake District, etc). All beautiful areas.

    Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you through the blogosphere! :)

  9. Came over from NaComLeavMo--I cant wait to read more of your entries--Ive been sucked in for the past 20 minutes!
    Hope you enjoyed your day off!

  10. I'm so thrilled to have met you! I found YOU through my blog, but since you're on the big 'ole list, it works out well. Apparently, that sentence makes it pretty clear how tired I am.

    I'll be back soon with something more coherent to say.
