This week’s Sunday Summary is going to be a bit of a quick one as I’m just about to leave the flat to go and see the Scotland v. New Zealand rugby match that’s on at Murrayfield today. As it was my birthday this week, my parents have come down for a wee visit and so we’re going to go watch the rugby this afternoon. I’m like 90% sure that Scotland are going to lose but it’s always fun to go an watch anyway! My auntie is also visiting at the moment so we all went out for a lovely meal to Passorn, an amazing Thai restaurant 2 seconds away from my flat, and some cocktails at the Dragonfly last night. I do love it when the parents come to visit and treat me to nice meals out!

For my actual birthday on Wednesday I didn’t do anything too wild (getting too old for that, *SOB*) but just had a few friends round to share a takeaway and watch some DVDs. I had a lovely evening and it was nice not to wake up with a hangover the next day, for once! My friends also brought round a birthday cake which we didn’t end up eating on the night as we were too stuffed full of takeaway, but I have been pretty much living off it since then – very healthy!

Aside from that, life has been very quiet. It’s only just dawned on me how much uni work I have to do within the next month, so that is kind of freaking me out a bit right now! I have three essays due before this time next month and I haven’t even started the reading for any of them yet. In fact, I haven’t even chosen a question for any of them yet. OH NO. I’m sure it’ll all be fine, but I just seem to have so many other things to deal with at the moment that I haven’t even had a second to think about essays yet. I’ve really been enjoying my course so far, so I hope having to get these essays done doesn’t spoil the fun of it all!

Well I better get going now, need to attempt to find some warm clothes and dig out a pair of gloves as I’ll be sitting outside for the next 3 or 4 hours. Nice. Anyway, what have you been up to this week?
