Hello! I realise I haven’t written much in the past two weeks, and admittedly it’s been due to being extremely busy. But now I’m finding the time to write you about stuff that’s been happening lately!
Just to mention one small thing…. my parents came to visit me over the weekend!! 😀 I was so so so happy. Honestly, I’ve been getting stressed lately (again; shocking, I know) and I hadn’t realised how much I actually needed some time off. They flew over on Saturday, and stayed until Tuesday morning. It was lovely; we went to town, to campus, to the park, shopping and food shopping. By the way, I love how they are always so lost when it comes to food here; it reminds me of how I felt in my first year, just looking at the various isles in Asda. 🙂 My parents stayed at a hotel, but my sister stayed with me at my place, so it was a bit just like going on holiday! Watching movies before going to bed, waking up and complaining together… aw, I miss her already. And it helped just being able to talk to them about things that have been bothering me, issues I always think I have to deal with alone… living away from home can do that to you. And it’s important to remember that despite being an adult now (well, allegedly) it’s okay to ask for help and advice if you need it.
But I am “ready” to go back to work now!
Oh, one last thing, yesterday was Pancake Day! I had no idea such a thing existed at all, how did I miss it in my first two years?! Shameful, really. Anyway, I went to a friend’s place armed with honey and Nutella! 😉
So yeah, good times. I hope this positive mood lasts for some time.
