Hello Lovelies!

Apologies because I really am the worst at keeping the blogging up. Good intentions and all that. Anyway, I thought I'd do a post to share with you guys what I've been up to lately.

Uni trip to London! So basically, I'm the least travelled person that I know. It's taken me 25 years of life to actually venture to London. I went at the start of last month on a trip with my fellow Law students. Most of our time was scheduled with visiting courts and Parliament but we also spent a lovely afternoon doing proper touristy things such as swinging by Buck Palace and browsing in Harrods. We also saw a show called Kinky Boots which was amazing!!

Then there have been the standard few nights out. Less than normal, to be honest I don't really enjoy nights out clubbing as much as I used to, I think it's just something you grow out of. I prefer going for a couple drinks and playing some pool, that way you can properly catch up with people. Nevertheless I had a brilliant night celebrating my friend Jake's 21st last month and going out on Easter Saturday knowing none of us had work the next day.

Cocktail obsessed, short person problems, homemade cocktail

I've also spent quite a bit of time trying to get outside as much as possible. It'll be easier now because of the longer hours of light and milder weather but the past few months have been so rainy and grim it's been challenging. I don't think winter helps my anxiety at all, I literally thrive on sunlight so getting outside is essential to me. Finally got round to visiting Brent Tor on the other side of Dartmoor to where I live, it's beautiful and the church is actually still in use. Luckily it was a dry day so we also visited the nearby Lydford Gorge on the same day. Apart from that I've been putting in some hours at the allotment to get it ready for sowing and the arrival of chickens in the next couple weeks.

Gonna have to put my head down a bit for the next couple months as exams are looming but hopefully get to do more in the evenings. Hope all's good with you whatever you're up to!
