This week is the first week since Christmas that I’ve honestly not had to do anything. I mean there have been days that I’ve done nothing since Christmas, but I should have been doing things! Last week I handed all my projects in at Uni and that means I can rest easy knowing that, bar my law exam next week (which is open book?!) I’ve finished my first year at Uni 🙂
I can’t begin to tell you how relieved I felt when I handed in my last project. Between commuting 130 miles each way to Uni, doing my work, baking, being a housewench (boyfriends nickname for me) I’ve been rushed off of my feet and am very much enjoying only having to bake and be a housewench this week.
Yes I’m up to my eyes in washing and the bathroom has been a bit neglected, but I find cleaning therapeutic and now the sun has finally come out I can dry my washing on the line. Who doesn’t love that fresh from the line smell?
I have orders for cakes from my dad who last week I gave the raspberry & white chocolate cake to. Well, I took it over to my parents house and told my mum what it was, but she forgot. So when I visited last Saturday my dad, who had been eating the cake all week was like “Oh my God, what is that, it’s so good?!” so he wants some more this weekend!
It’s also been lovely to have time to think about and prepare proper dinners instead of having to grab a jar of pasta sauce. I can be out in the kitchen preparing by 3 and have everything ready for when the other half gets home. I feel so relaxed, it’s lovely.
Guilty little secret now, I’m also happy that I’ve been able to watch Jeremy Kyle on time every morning… Usually I record it and have to watch it when I get time. Sorry, but I love watching people screaming at each other every morning, it’s hilarious. Where do they find these people?! It makes me feel that my life isn’t bad at all, when I’m a bit annoyed because the other half has come in and dumped a load of stuff on the table when I’ve cleaned it. That’s nothing compared to these people! I know I’m happy 99% of the time, but really my life is dandy 🙂
I was going to do some gardening today, we have some lovely plants and seeds that need to be planted, they’ve been sat in the garden for 2 weeks now, we’ve just been too busy, or it’s been raining. However, my back is playing up, so I won’t be digging today 🙁
Next week, it’s back to being busy. Once my law exam is finished, my summer starts, but I really need a job so the hunt starts next week. Crossing my fingers I find something, which means I’ll be spending summer working, but I don’t mind because before Uni I became far too used to having an income and it’s really hit me hard being a poor student. I hate having to watch every single penny. I decided to commute from Essex to Southampton whenever I need to go to Uni as I’m so much happier at home and don’t mind driving, so of course it’s my fault that I have no money as it all goes on fuel, but for my sanity I need to be at home. I work better at home and love my own bed too much!
My hopes for summer are that I can find a job and at least have something coming in, it will be lovely not to have to drive to Uni and I’m hoping to transfer closer to home for the start of next year so the financial stress should be a little less next Uni year. I also want to bake more! I’m studying Interior Design and I love it, I want to be an Interior Designer, but I also want a bakery! Maybe later in life, maybe for now I should just keep baking cakes as a hobby. When I start to think how much work, money and planning it would take to start a bakery, it kind of scares me/stresses me, so maybe I’ll leave it…. until I’m grown up! 😛
Now, back to Jeremy Kyle. Have a lovely day!
