A blog about travel, books and navigating your twenties in one piece

Sunday, 6 January 2013


I thought I'd just give you a brief update into what I've been doing for the first 6 days of 2013, because I'm so incredibly exciting.

1. Having had a marvellous NYE I woke up on NYD feeling pretty wrong, I had no idea what was going on, but I knew I felt off. So, I went downstairs to wake up Harry, who was sleeping on the sofa as I had taken his bed (sorry!), and just as I thought it might be alright, I swiftly proceeded to throw up in his toilet. Wonderful. Still have no idea what caused it, but I'm wishfully hoping it will never be talked of again.

2. I decided this was the day to start my revision for mocks. I'd been putting it off for the majority of the holidays with the classic excuses of 'Christmas Eve, Christmas, in Yorkshire therefore can't, New Year.' Now that they were all done I had nothing left, so began. 6 hours into it I felt just about ready for a breakdown, so when my best friend Rosie called me it was greatly appreciated. We had both spent the day revising and agreed we needed a break so I went to hers for a 'revision' sleepover. We really did have the intent to do revision, I promise. It just didn't happen that night. We talked and laughed and everything else we do at sleepovers, and it was really nice.

3. Rosie and I awoke, decided we really must do some revision, and eventually did. We then got ready and I went to Harry's for dinner, which was lovely.

4. One of my best friends, James, moved to Australia nearly 2 years ago and he came back for Christmas, but obviously had spent lots of time with family so we hadn't been able to see him before the 4th. I spent the morning revising and then we went to Sean's to see him. It was such a funny evening, spent watching Friends With Kids (good film), eating, and laughing, an insane amount. I really missed him. A portion of it was also spent with me, Lucy and Hannah being left alone and with Lucy's iPad mini, resulting in some horrific pictures, a few of which I will leave you with at the end of this post.

5. Harry came round and we watched Crazy, Stupid, Love. Oh my goodness, I love it. Ryan Gosling. All I need to say. And the rest of the film was pretty good too. Really glad Harry brought it. We had lunch at the M&S cafe, I'm a little in love with their ham and cheese toasties. In the evening I again met up with James and the gang, again very funny and lovely.

6. Today has been spent revising some more, and basically getting ready for school tomorrow. My alarm is set for 6:30am tomorrow, and I have two weeks of mocks ahead of me. I want to cry. These holidays have been wonderful, I've almost forgotten what school feels like. Oh well, got to go back. I'll get through it, I think.

If you've read all of those points, well done, if not, don't worry, I don't blame you. If you don't see me around these parts in the next couple of weeks it's because I should probably concentrate on my mocks, but we'll see, I might turn up at some point. Ok, as promised, there are the pictures, we're beautiful, I know. 



  1. Great post, good luck in your mocks love!

    1. Thank you lovely, they're not going too badly, thank goodness!

  2. "And the rest of the film was pretty good too" - haha love it! Sounds like you had a good few days! I hate the feeling when you know you have to revise/do something productive and you literally just cannot find the motivation - story of my life! Good luck with your mocks x


    1. Thank you so much! I know exactly how you feel, oh well, hopefully the revision will pay off :)
