Sorry I haven’t had a chance to post much on the blog this week, I seem to have been really busy doing not very much at all. I’m up visiting my parents in Aberdeen for a couple of weeks before my final exams start, so I’m taking the time to just relax and be a bit lazy before I have to start proper revision. Since I’ve been home my days mostly consist of snoozing until lunchtime, watching Bargain Hunt, playing with the dog for a wee while then sharing a bottle of wine with my parents while helping to make dinner, and before you know it it’s nearly time for bed. Even though I have my laptop with me, I find I never really use it that much and it’s nice to have a little bit of a break from Facebook and Twitter for a while! Although I have started playing the Sims Social this week and have become a little bit addicted, I wish more of my friend played it so I could get extra rewards haha!
My brother has just bought a new house so this week I’ve been helping do some painting and DIY-ing. I cannot wait for the day when I can buy my own house and decorate it nicely and fill it with lovely furniture, but sadly I don’t see that happening any time soon! For that I would need a job and lots of savings, neither of which are looking too positive at the moment! I’ve pretty much decided (not 100% sure yet though…) that I want to do a Masters course next year, so that would mean at least one more year of being a student and living in a rented flat.
Apart from that I haven’t really been up to much this week, but it has been so nice just to be able to relax for a while. All I’ve worn since I got home is pyjamas! My aunt and uncle are visiting this afternoon for a Sunday roast though, so it will be nice to see them. Roast dinners aren’t really a big thing in my house, much to my dismay – I think I’m the only one in my family who likes them! – so we don’t have them every week. Everyone in my family lives quite far away from each other as well, so we only usually have big meals and get-togethers at Christmas or New Year. So I’m really looking forward to a nice meal today, I’d better go and help chop vegetables and put things in the oven!
What have you been up to this week?
