University Life (Part 1)


This following post includes highly unprofessional photos, mostly taken on an iPhone whilst drunk. 

University is the biggest part of my life. And my friends there have come to mean a lot to me. So I feel it's about time I share them with you.

This is going to be an on going series. I have too many pictures to even figure out exactly which ones I want to post.

I Miss Kearsney Abbey

Kearsney Abbey is one of my favourite places in the world, and way back in August when it came to celebrating my mum's rather significant birthday (she would kill me if I told you why it was significant) we wanted to take her somewhere that seemed to hold a special place in my whole families heart.

My mum hates surprises. So naturally, we didn't tell her where we were going, or who was going to be there, or just what the hell was going on in general. She was surprised by the sight of all her favourite people waiting for her with a picnic fit for a king. It's safe to say her hatred of surprises dampened slightly.

We like to think we're an athletic family (we are really REALLY not) so we tried to play football (failed), tried to play Frisbee (failed), and tried to play rounders, and I may have broken my toe. This is why I don't do exercise, even rounders is a dangerous sport for me. (Rounders Tip: Don't take your shoes off so you can run better, you WILL kick the rounders post, and it WILL hurt.)

 Oh, and if you ever want anyone to make a personality based cake, ask my aunties, they are pro's.

So Kearsney Abbey, I hope to see you again soon, I miss you very much.

Camping In East Sussex (Part 8)

Our final stop on our mini trip was into the town of Hastings. Hastings may have become one of my favourite places in England. It just has everything you want in a seaside town. If you ever want to go on a really stereotypical trip to a British beach, go to Hastings.

The Jerwood Gallery was an amazing gallery, the particular exhibit I went to see was a display of Jeffrey Camp's work. His work really reminded me of Van Gogh's with Jeffrey's own unique element thrown in to every one of his paintings. I also may have done a bit too much shopping in Hastings, in fact I almost bought a bike but my mum spent a long time convincing me it wouldn't fit in the van.

So that's it, East Sussex I miss you, and hopefully I will see you again some time soon.

Camping In East Sussex (Part 7)

I love visiting garden's. It's the old lady in me, she just loves strolling through hedge-cut pathways. When in East Sussex, we found out the homes and gardens of famous gardener Christopher Lloyd where just a short drive away. Great Dixter is a massive expanse of colour and wild-life and the tea-rooms! Do not get me started on there carrot cake.
