Hello there lovely readers!
Well here I am, trying my hardest to ‘keep my chin up’ as Tom would say :-P
It’s been a tough day, knowing that he’s gone back to uni and that I won’t be seeing him again for several weeks. Tom isn’t just a boyfriend to me, he’s my best friend, so I really do feel like a chunk of my life is missing when we’re apart for extended periods of time. But this can just be viewed as an opportunity for Skype dates which make the perfect break from revision so there can always be a silver lining!
Today I threw myself into my work in order to distract myself and I’m pretty pleased with what I’ve managed to get done.
I think it’s down to the foul weather outside…
It’s hard to tell in this photo but if you look at the gutter you can see evidence of the heavy rain and even hail that we’ve been experiencing pretty much constantly today.
It’s also thanks to the hearty food that I’ve enjoyed today:
Jamie Oliver’s chicken and mushroom pie served with peas and wilted lettuce (the latter might sound a little odd but it’s actually delicious). I’m not actually much of a fan of chicken pie usually but today it was just what I needed. Perfect fuel for a hard day’s work.
I have only got one more week at home and then it’s back to uni again for the final push. I’ll be back there on Monday 30th and will be done with my first year (!!) in a month’s time, with my last exam on the 31st April. Not long to go, can’t wait to be done with this year. I have to say, I still have two essays to write and four exams to get through which is stressing me out somewhat but I’ll get there.
Anyway, it’s definitely time for me to get to bed so I’ll say goodnight for now!
What’s your favourite comfort food?
