Well, a very busy couple of days - sorry for lack of posts (comments read and due attention paid!). Well, it's great to be back home in sunny Exeter - I have finally caught up on my sleep, which is a huge benefit after 15 weeks of running almost entirely on adrenaline!

So, Saturday was spent packing manically in the morning (note to self: wherever possible do not leave this to the last minute!). Train journey home was very pleasant, running on time and everything! And just spent the evening catching up on all the news with my Mum. Sunday was fab – great to catch up with all the bods from St Leonards. I joined in with the choir for the Carol Service in the evening – it’s one of my favourite services in the year, so it was great to be involved again.

The last couple of days I’ve spent far too much time shopping – I find shopping irritating at the best of times, but when it’s heaving with people and I am greatly lacking in inspiration for pressie ideas I find it a bit of a nightmare. However, all done now, and I just hope people enjoy receiving as much as I enjoyed buying – or perhaps a little more!!

Yesterday I felt very popular, but since those are likely to be my only two Exeter social occasions of the holiday I think that feeling will leave all too quickly! I went to celebrate James’s 20th birthday – originally we were meant to be bowling, but due to a slight oversight (i.e. he forgot to book!), we ended up playing on his X-box all afternoon in the comfort of his living room, and much fun was had by all. I then went on to the Imperial, which is Exeter’s Weatherspoons – one of the best in the country I believe! – to meet my old school friends, and it was great to catch up with them. Then back to James’s to play silly games and eat far too much chocolate cake, hooray!

So now I’m looking forward to Christmas in earnest – Dave will be on his way tomorrow, which is only ever a good thing! Much food, much music (yes, I’m playing in church again!), and ultimately celebrating the time when our Saviour Jesus was sent to Earth – what a fantastic opportunity to thank God for His amazing gift.

Have a Cheery and Blessed Christmas one and all.

God Bless xXx

The very beginnings

Hey everybody! Welcome to my blog (kind of online diary for those of you not down with the lingo!). I'll try and keep it as up to date as possible so please do keep on checking and adding your comments!

For the moment, I've just finished my exams - hooray! - which means I'm exactly half way through the studying part of my degree - very scary thought, I'm so glad I'm taking a placement year! Tomorrow I shall be off home for the Christmas holidays, which I am greatly looking forward to - at last, some sleep!

Well, that's all for now. Take care one and all xXx
