Well, I'm currently footloose and fancy free, as work finished up nicely last week. My last shifts went quite well, bar having to make a missing persons report, but having two young good looking men in uniform call out to see you for a while at 2am is never really a bad thing is it?!! I was touched my the cards I received from my colleagues, and even more so by some of the well wishes from the tenants. It was lovely to receive them from the tenants I've been working with for years, but even more heart warming from a couple of new guys that I've not really had the opportunity to know so well.
So that's the end of that chapter in my life. I've made some fantastic friends there, and still have my leaving do to look forward to next week!
This weekend we're off to London for a family party - fab way to spend the last couple of days before I start the course!
Other than that not much has gone on here.
I wasted almost a whole day of my life changing broadband providers. Not an experience I wish to repeat. And as it stands at the moment, if the new service does not greatly improve I'll be trundling back to our old one!! As they say, the grass ain't always greener.
I went blackberry picking last week in the field by our house and made a delicious Crumble for tea. Lee refused to eat any of it as, in his own words, the fruit had come from "outside". Yes Lee, because fruit usually comes cello-packed from a factory.
So I ate it all over a couple of days. Shame that.
Anyway! About the post title! I'm getting ever ready for uni on Monday! We have a whole fortnight of freshers to look forward to, and I've been busy preparing my costumes for some of the fancy dress nights. I've got my first one done, for Superhero night (I typed Superhore first there!!). Being a larger girly, I couldn't find anything suitable to rent or buy (and they cost a bloody fortune anyway), so I've made my own! And while it's not brilliant, it's not bad either, and it's certainly original so I'm hoping it will be a good ice breaker for the evening :)
I decided to go as Super Nat, still a little undecided as to what my powers will be, maybe drinking shots at lightening speed?! Any suggestions welcome!!
I bought the skirt and leggings, but made the tshirt and cape myself - with stitching that would move my old Textiles lecturer to tears of joy I'm sure. It turned out really well I reckon!! All I need to pick up now is a pair of long black gloves that I've seen in a party shop and I'm away :)
Right, I'm off. Next time I post I'll officially be a trainee teacher!!
See you on the other side :)
