The library has eaten me. I feel as if I am in belly of a whale.
I am so pleased to announce that this blog, my own pride and joy, has now become award winning!
Leeds Study Abroaders were asked to submit a creative piece of work relating to their year abroad and mine was one of the lucky 6! I’m so excited to have won (I think you can tell by my face…) and it was awesome seeing people reading it and actually chuckling slightly. Juhuuu! I enjoyed the edits that they picked out, especially the picture of Seb’s frozen moustache.
A massive well done to the others too, especially Ellen and Tim! I wish I could do it all again! Thank you my lovely readers and everyone that was interested!
Life update: Without Berlin I am bored, so I’m learning to play the ukulele and joining the Otley Ukulele Orchestra.
Stay to the left stay to the left stay to the left stay to the left!
Its 1am and I have been back in England 2 weeks. Its been manic to say the least, what with just about managing to manouver my bike through Manchester airport, starting my placement, looking for houses, organising where on earth all my friends are (literally), spending lots of lovely times with Sebber and taking part in the Leeds Swing Exchange (very fun), I am knackered.
Pleased to be back. Sad to be gone. I will always remember my last night in Berlin - electro swing until the early hours with a dash of 6am table tennis and a photoautomat session to round off the night. Perfect.
