Life in the Shire- Cows, BBQs and Results

In my opinion, I live in the best Shire in England- Cheshire! Having not been at home since early February, I was very excited to spend time here after my Year Abroad as even though it’s very quiet around these parts, there is no place like home. In-fact, one of the things that I was […]

Outside Versailles


Last weekend, I went on a trip to Versailles to see its famous château. A great thing about the trip was that it was absolutely FREE to get there and to get in! As I have already said in my blogs, getting something for nothing in Paris is a rare and happy moment so I […]

End of Exams Celebrations

On Thursday I had my last (and first actually, I was one of the lucky ones!) exam. I was pretty happy with how it went as 2 of the 3 questions I answered were topics I felt confident on so fingers crossed when we get our results in around 3 weeks, I will be pleased. […]
