Well … Think it is safe to say I have been absolutely dreadful at this blogging malark of late. I will put it down to two things 1) being so busy with Christmas Festivities and travelling back home etc 2) lacking in any inspiration to write – to be honest. It seems to come in waves, sometimes I have so much to write about and then I will have months when I don’t. It’s frustrating more than anything and maybe I just need to try a little harder. Once I am back in beautiful British Columbia I promise I will, because the primary reason I started this was to blog about my travels.
Once the overwhelming amount of stress was over from my two exams? (hence the sarcasm there please) we all enjoyed an amazing last week of celebrations. I won’t bore you with all the tiny details but we had a celebratory last PIT night, a short trip up to Whistler to say bye to our favourite boys, a very chaotic slutty Christmas party, a not so formal semi formal and a ‘big pimpin’ Christmas present from a certain someone – tickets to the Kanye & JayZ concert. It was such a nice end to some of the most amazing 4 months of my life, and thankfully there are 4 more to come once I return from the Christmas break.
I am half way through my Christmas break and the last week spent in France with my family couldn’t have been better. Seeing my new home and doing nothing but lazing around and eating numerous french treats (mainly macaroons and plenty of cheese-nom nom nom) has prepared me for the chaos that this upcoming week is about to be. I am sat on the train to Manchester as I am writing this, and even passing through Piccadilly yesterday was excitement enough. I miss this place so so much but knowing I will be back in 8 months to cause a bunch of ‘ballllin’ chaos (just for you sheppy) makes me so ridiculously excited, and glad, that I have made so many special memories here.
There is no better way to bring in the New Year than to be with the ones I love, I am sure it will be a mad 7 days but I couldn’t of been happier that I was able to come home for the Christmas break (thankyou mum and pops)!! Hopefully I will be refreshed for the next action packed 4 months in Canada, but somehow I think the only sleep I will get all week will be on the 9 hour flight back to Vancouver. Well…Sleep when you’re dead right?
Happy New Year everyone, see you all in 2012 :) xxxx
