Open day

Went to a post offer open day yesterday, it was really good to meet the people who I'll hopefully be studying with come September and it was nice that the staff and current students made a real effort to try to impress us. I've already put that choice as my firm on ucas, so unless something horrible shows up on my occupational health or crb checks then I'm definitely going there. It was a good day.

I'm not a fan of Chinese food or loud music, but I'm still glad I went out to the social night as well. I thought it was really funny - people finding out who I am on nmm and being able to put faces to the other user names. It got to about half 12 and I wanted to go back to where i was staying, but I couldn't find anyone to get a taxi with me, so I ended up getting the bus - I'm not used to being able to do that, where I live there's a bus that goes past my house twice a day and no buses run at all at night so if you want to go out anywhere then you have to drive (or get a lift).

I went on the bus to the halls after the open day - I wasn't impressed with them to be honest. For £73 a week, you expect a bit more than 7 people cramped into a tiny corridor with a kitchen on the end. I think I'm gonna look out for private accommodation. But again - that has its own problems: who am I gonna live with? It seemed a bit wierd to organise to houseshare with people that I only just met. Any ideas?

Anyway, I'm off to take the dog for a walk up the lane. See you later.

Busy weekend

So, snow patrol was great on friday. Liverpool was a bitch to drive to - got a bit lost after we came out of the tunnel. Next time, we'll go to Manchester!

Saturday was spent trawling through shops trying to find a christening present and a birthday present for my niece (she was 2 on thursday). It isnt easy trying to find presents that are grown up enough for a 2 year old, most toys are either suitable for 18months+ or 3 years+. In the end I settled for a cup that you can put pictures in and a truck with some tools in it (I'm determined to make her a tomboy!!). And of course - a Welsh rugby t shirt!

Sunday was a long day, up early to make the 3 hour drive to Manchester for the christening of my cousin's baby. The doo afterwards involved lots of family I don't know. Good cake though!

I got to go visit my niece to give her her birthday presents. She is a cutie! It's a shame that we don't get to see her often becasue she lives in Manchester. She liked her presents, but not as much as the helium balloon that we brought her from the christening! Typical. Anyway, I thought I'd post a picture of her because I cant get over how cute it is (in my opinion) - I suprised her with the camera! So, happy birthday Molly! I can't believe you're 2!
Hopefully this weekend will be a little less busy.

Quick update

It's been a while since I posted last, mostly because I lead quite a boring life and not much has gone on! I did decline my St. Georges offer, now I'm waiting for more offers to go out to the other university so that I know who I'll be going to med school with. I'm looking forward to going to the open day next month, I only really got to see the place briefly when I went to my interview in December.

In other news, I started on a diet a couple of weeks ago, I lost 3Ib the first week and I get weighed again tomorrow. I don't have much to lose really, about a stone ish. It's more for moral support for my mum than actually being unhappy with my own weight. Also, if I lose a few pounds now, I won't feel so guilty pigging out when Easter comes!

Anyway, I'm going to go and light the fire now because I'm cold. See you later. Ooh, and Happy St. David's Day!
