It’s crazy busy here in Nottingham this week, but all for good reasons. Well, for the most part it’s still good.
This week – Guides on Monday, nearly didn’t go but ended up having a really good time and glad I went. Talked about camp, hoping to have a nice relaxing camp again because that’s the way I roll. My guide leader and I will probably come to blows over who gets to play with the campfire first, but should be good.
Tuesday – boring lecture, but managed to get most of my translation for tomorrow done in it so I’m counting that as a win. Panic moment when I realised that I had an essay due in before the one I’m working on, so dash to the library to pick up ALL the books then home to buy ingredients for pie and chocolate mousse for the challenge dinner. My friend challenged me to make an awesome pie, and in return he’d cook dinner and it would be a cook off of small proportions. I think it went rather brilliantly in the end, I didn’t get around to taking any pictures of what was going on in the kitchen while I was cooking, but this morning I had this. Mostly clean living room, horrendous kitchen to sort out because I didn’t do any washing up and the washing machine has broken. It’s decided it doesn’t like anything, and I don’t really blame it! It was sweet though, Hairy came in and started mopping up and helping out without even taking off his coat.
Tonight we’re off to see Iron Man 3, tomorrow is the reciprocal dinner and Friday we’re getting a new fridge and then off to Lydney to stay with one of Hairy’s brothers for the weekend. It’s lovely, but slightly scary. I have an exam next week, an essay a week for two weeks after that then another exam, then blam. Nothing else academic.
I’m off to read a pile of boring, translate some more crazy and think about packing. Argh!
