THE PERFECT SUNDAY

On Sunday, the house made a roast dinner as a way to end the weekend and to celebrate semester one. How quickly has the time gone? Today Ellie went home for Christmas, Mads is travelling home and Katie and I are going home on Friday, leaving our cute, little house behind for nearly a month. This week I am keeping myself very busy – tomorrow I am going to watch Mabel, spending wednesday at a Christmas market and thursday I have my last lectures of the year, then Katie and I are going for food!! This weekend I am off to Birmingham to visit my sister, then drive her home for Christmas!

Who is excited for Christmas? I honestly cannot wait to get home to my friends and family. In just over 2 weeks I am off to Rome.

Glastonbury Festival 2016

I really cannot believe Glastonbury is over. This is the time of year everybody waits for all year round and it is done. This year was absolutely amazing, I camped will all my friends and it was such a good time. As my mum is friends with an Evis we do not have to queue which made Kelsey, Jess Holly and I’s time a lot easier, although it was pouring with rain the Wednesday morning, the thing I loved most about Glastonbury this year is how kind and loving we all were to each other, we were all so helpful and made sure everyone was okay at all times.

This going to sound cringe, but I have come away from Glastonbury this year feeling very uplifted and content. Listening to all the acts speeches about leaving the EU and equality within todays society were very inspirational. I have seriously come away feeling like a different person, as if I want to make the world a better place. ย It has motivated me to work hard, stay loving a keep smiling.

Yes, I have come away from Glastonbury feeling very spiritual.

 

Love Saves The Day

As you will notice, I will be going back in time a little on my blog as I have lots of stuff to catch you up on. First of all, Love Saves The Day. I went to a festival at the end of May for the day and it was one of our best days ever. I went will Holly, Kelsey and George, although he left early, and we also knew a lot of people there, such as Solly (my boyfriend) and a lot of his friends. We watched Stormzy, Dizzee Rascal, Chase and Statuss DJ set and a lot more.

If anyone has ever heard of this day festival I defiantly recommend attending next year, even if it is just for the day. It is only a 2 day festival, you do not stay over night on the site, but the event takes place in Bristol. So people either find a lift home or get a hotel over night. People who attend both nights often get a hotel. There is also a motion after party that takes place when the festival ends at around 11:30. There is a main stage and other little dance tents that we spent most of our day in. It was also nice to go somewhere different with a different group of people.
