ohhh...errrr... haven't done this for a while. I guess it's like riding a bike...once you've learned you never forget. A bit wobbly to start though!!!

bike crash


Right then a quick catch up:
I passed all my assignments
I passed all my exams
I've enrolled for University (they have one at Bury St Edmunds offshoot of UCS)
I'm going to do my BA Hons English & History
Still broke!!!....need a part time job or a lodger...any offers????
The (close) family are all doing each and every one of them
I won't be blogging regularly and don't promise to visit you all
I am on Facebook now though; so add me as a friend if you are on there too (already found a few blogpals)
Still taking too many photos!
Still enjoying the garden
Borrowing Rob's (son's) pc while he tries to repair mine
Still smoking.......yes I know I shouldn't and can't really afford it but a girl's got to have ONE vice in her life
Have put on weight...doing netball traing and a few exercises to try and lose it......don't mention dieting.....I SAID 'DON'T MENTION DIETING!!!!'
Most of all.....still missing my soul mate.......................................................

Ermmmmm....can't think of anything else......................

Anyway won't bore you with loads of photos except these at the moment.....

The building where I'd be having my tutorials...

Nice gardens........

Trust me to notice that!!!!!!

Hope you're all well and wishing you health, wealth and happiness and leaving you with this thought...

"Wisdom doesn't automatically come with old age.

Nothing does except wrinkles.

It's true, some wines improve with age.

But only if the grapes were good in the first place."
~Abigail Van Buren~

Really hoping I'm a 'good grape'

Hi Ruth, great to see you post..!
Hadn't forgotten you, and often wondered how you were doing. Congrats on the exam results, and great news that you are going on to Uni.
Post when you can, I'd like to hear how things are going..

Analía said...

Welcome my friend! Abd congratulations for all the exams! You're such a good girl :) and excellent student! I'm really proud of you.

I love it. I just love it all. What a huge positive example you go no being to us all: and netball and fags, totally brilliant!
It's amazing and perfect that you're going to do a degree. Just what would he say to that, I wonder. I reckon he'd bite lumps out of that grape, eh?
And a huge smile at what you wrote about getting back on the blog-bike...that's how I felt yesterday. It was there, but so strange. Like,"Is this what you do?" and "This bit has changed". Actually, it is a great serendipity. Most of all to turn the pc on today, after the 3-hour power & cable cut to find 4 of you waiting for me! I couldn't believe that! How possible?
As you, it can't be a regular gig anymore, but is so reassuring. Like when Jake & Elwood Blues decide to get the band together again ("The Blues Brothers").
Till soon, hopefully. Bless you, bless you and MWAH!!!!!

I hope it is all going really well. Do you ever get to Colchester? There is the Red Lion Bookshop and they are selling lots of 'introduction to' books for £9.99 and you buy-one-get-one-free. They are all on lots ov different ideas, sujects, philosophers, economists, etc etc. Big books too.

Hope you settle in and meet good people! Keep in touch!

Nose hugs!

Oh, I am so far behind in following blogs and even though we have had a few comments on Facebook, I never realised you started blogging again...

Seems once the bloggy thing has grabbed us by the... (what do women have???) it cannot leave us alone

Sadly it is late and I need a good sleep, will be back to read all your new posts and maybe from next week I will have the energy to put up a new post every now and again too.

Stay well

lvs & hugs
