january blues

HAPPY SUNDAY!

I am currently sat in my living room, by the warm fire, stressing about my exam on Wednesday. I am the WORST at taking exams. I hate being put on the spot. After Wednesday I am free to do whatever and start a fresh in the Uni year. I am going to create my 2018 Highlights video, revamp my Uni bedroom, blog a lot more and hopefully get myself a part time job. I have a lot of things to pay for this Summer so I better start saving.

January is the worst month of the year, you believe that Winter is over because Christmas has ended when really it has just begun.

This is a picture from Solly and Is trip to Rome over Christmas. I have serious travel bug at the moment and can’t wait to get away again. February is the month for a placement search and I am hoping to find one in a European country to get away for a whole year. Nothing appeals to me more than living in another country and learning about a whole new culture.

I have just sent in my 35mm film camera pictures to be printed. 34 pictures just of Solly in Rome! I am excited to share them all and start using this camera a lot more.

a weekend in hollands wood, new forest

Camping in the New Forest, Dorset

I would massively recommend a weekend away at the New Forest. It is very relaxing and a lot of fun. The place is filled with horses, on the first morning a shetland pony came charging at us for our food! Although there is not that much to do around us bar cycling and long walks it is a very pretty area. I would go back again!

Solly and I were not able to go on a holiday this year due to him being super busy with work and us both having so many other things planned, so we thought we should spend a weekend in a tent instead. We have now both spent 2 weekends in a row in a tent, the first weekend being in a smelly, muddy field with lots of other people to the second weekend doing it properly. We borrowed my mums Glastonbury Festival tent that has one pod with a huge middle bit to keep all of our stuff in. We bought a gas cooker to make ourselves cups of tea and breakfast every morning, I stocked us up on food and beer and made our sleeping area extremely snug.

Weekend In Bournemouth

Weekend in Watford

On Friday evening Sol did not finish work until 6:30PM so we did not get to the campsite until it was pitch black. Putting the tent up in the dark was a struggle, especially when we had people taking the micky out of us when they walked passed.

On Saturday we had a long morning, relaxing outside the tent and trying to figure out how to cook some sausages without burning them. In the afternoon we went to Hurst Castle which is Henry VIII castle, a prison of Charles and a World War 2 theatre. To get to it we either had to get a ferry or walk for a couple miles along the sea front. Stupidly we decided to walk, forgetting how windy it would be being right by the seaside, but when we got there we were glad we visited. Solly loves things like this.

In the evening we went for dinner at The Snake Catcher which was not amazing. I got whitebait to start and before I had even finished they bought out my burger. It seemed like they were in a massive rush, but I did hear that they had been packed all day. On Sunday we went to Christchurch Harbour which I loved!! It was so cute, people were crabbing, paddle boarding and it was filled with lots of boats. Thankfully it was actually sunny so we were able to sit on the rocks and eat fish and chips.

I am getting my disposable cameras printed of today and I can not wait to share with you the craziness of Boomtown, bits of London and some cute pictures from camping. Disposable camera photos are my favourite, they look so nice when they are printed out. Was thinking of carrying one around all the time so I can hang the photos up in my University room!
