Sadly for you guys I have not actually thrown in the blogging towel. :-p I have been absent from the land of blogging due to enjoying my first ever annual leave. This may not sound very exciting to some of you, but a holiday without feeling guilty for not doing an essay or revision or worrying about dissertation??? It is heaven. I felt it would be rude of me to disappear and not show you what I have been up too. I apologise for the amount of pictures and rambles of my adventures to follow, but if you are anything like me- you will love having a nose.
Firstly I set off on a three day "holiday" to Cardiff with Sarah, one of my very best friends in the whole wide world. We gossiped, laughed, shopped, pampered and enjoyed wonderful cocktails and a lot of yummy food. We stayed in a hotel called the The Big Sleep, it was a basic place to stay but we did not encounter any "stained beds" or "urine smells" as some of the reviews suggested. I would definitely recommend it for the location and price. It was within a few minutes walk to the train station, shops and the bars! Breakfast was included and served in a cute pink flowery room with pink bowls!!! What else can a pink obsessed girl want?
I went on a romantic valentines day walk/six mile gruelling hike (depending how you look at it) with my parents and boyfriend. We went on a canal walk in Limpley Stoke and saw the Aqueduct, which was a rather strange concept. Boats going along the canal on a bridge over a river? Whoever thought that one up? I love looking in the canal boat windows, and get rather excited thinking about that one day when I win the lottery and live in a luxurious one.
I introduced my boyfriend to a car boot sale, he had never been before!!!! He thought there was a lot of junk, I thought there was a lot of treasures (one day I will find a Fabergé egg). Whilst I was there I found these two little brooches that I could not resist buying for my sister. Because as you can see from the picture below- she has recently become a Victorian and cannot get enough of them. I hope you like them Roo :-) seeing as this will be the first time you see them!
I have spent a lot of time with my family, friends and cats and loved every second of it.
I have also been enjoying having colour on my nails again!!!! This is Revlon- Passion Fruit (which is scented), I cannot remember the glitter- I had a manicure from a friend and clearly I was not paying enough attention!
I think that is enough for anyone to look at for one day.
P.S. I have missed you blog
