Sunday Summary #38


1.Footprints in the sand 2.Holidays 3.Favourite quote 4.New shoes 5.Ginger Pickle order 6.Cosy jumper weather

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog (and in general life) this week as I haven't been feeling well. Nothing too major, just a horrible cold that I can't seem to get rid of. I think I've managed to get "freshers flu" which is totally unfair as I haven't even been out once this whole week! A few of my friends were going out last night but I sensibly declined (how unlike me) as I didn't want to make myself even worse. They came round for predrinking and were busy making cocktails while I was snuggled up on the sofa with a hot water bottle and some cup-a-soup!

I dragged myself out of bed on Friday morning to go and sign up for my classes for this year. Most of the ones I wanted to do weren't running this year so I had to choose some others, but I'm quite happy with the ones I got in the end. I also managed to pick all afternoon classes, which is always a bonus! Throughout my undergraduate degree, one of the main deciding factors for choosing a course was what time the lectures were at. I also get to do an archival internship next semester as part of my Masters, so I'm really looking forward to finding out where I'll be going for that.

Aside from that, the only other thing of note that I've done this week is go to the cinema. My flatmate and I went to see Lawless, I didn't really know what it was about before we went, but I actually really enjoyed it. We got some 2 for 1 vouchers at the cinema so will probably go back again some time next week to use them up. Have you seen anything good at the cinema recently that you'd recommend?

And finally, a quick announcement about my blog design shop. Now that I'm back at university I unfortunately won't have time to continue taking new orders. If you would like your blog redesigned, please email me before the end of tomorrow (Monday) to let me know you are interested, and I will add you to the queue. All orders in the queue at the moment will be finished as soon as possible. I'm going to leave all the information up on my blog designs page as hopefully this will just be temporary, and I'll be able to open the shop again when I have more time. Thank you so much to everyone who has ordered something from me over the last few months, I honestly had no idea this many of you would be interested in my designs!

What have you been up to this week?

  1. Yay for jumpers and boots coming back into our posts! Sorry you haven't been feeling great, get well soon!

  2. Archival internship sounds great! Starting to wish I'd have done my masters this year, definitely considering it for a few years time! xo

  3. I hope you feel better soon :( I managed to evade freshers flu last year so I'm crossing my fingers for the same luck again! I saw Brave recently and didn't really know anything about it, so the big plot twist was actually surprising! Other than the main twist the plot was predictable, but I really enjoyed it overall :)

  4. hope you're feeling better, lovely pictures, love your jumper! :)

  5. I only got fresher's flu after I was a fresher too haha, it's so unfair, in fact I think I'm getting it now and I haven't even returned to uni yet for my final year (: I hope you enjoy your classes, can't ever imagine returning to do a Masters - I'm just sick of reading! xx

  6. That beach looks so scenic and relaxing. Just a wee bit jealous. Quiet, low key weeks are nice. Mine was pretty hectic with moving. Nice to sit and catch up on all the blogs I've missed this Sunday (like yours!). x

  7. I love those photos of the beach! And that little poem is so amazing; I love it! My week was stressful and I'm so sad the weekend is almost over. Hopefully this week will be 100x's better for both of us!

  8. Ohhh your beach/holiday photos are the most beautiful photos I've seen all summer, they make me want to come travel around Scotland so badly! I keep thinking I'm getting ill but then not, and part of me almost is looking forward to it because I know that means Winter is around the corner? haha a bit silly, oh well! xx


  10. Those boots are gorgeous! I went to the cinema last week to see the watch and also the new total recall but I didn't really enjoy either of them all too much. I'm excited to see Looper when that comes out. I saw it advertised at the cinema and it looks amazing! Check out the trailer! xxx

  11. I LOVE these shoes, I hope you feel better soon!

  12. I just got home from a trip and I have such a terrible cold. I hate it! My head feels like it's going to explode, my nose is red and my throat burns. Never thought I would say this but I wish I was in school with my friends. I hope you'll enjoy your classes this year! P.S. I love that shoes and jumper :)x
