Life has been pretty busy, but in a good way. Like a sky scattered with stars or a picnic blanket strewn with tasty treats, in between all the work and paperwork and hassle and long phone calls to banks, phone companies, stores etc., there’s lots of beauty to enjoy, and fun to be had.
It’s a sunny and warm Saturday here, after a week of truly random weather. Yesterday I’d decided I’d had quite enough of the cold and rainy June, so decided to dress optimistically in a blue and white sundress, and my cute yellow heels (which I love! Think Dorothy’s heels in the Wizard of Oz and change the colour :-)). And it worked – yesterday was gorgeous and today seems to be shaping up quite nicely too.
Yesterday I also had an unexpected visit – three of my lovely friends from home in Scotland, Harriet, Andrew and Rosie, were randomly in the shire and popped in to see me at school (photos in my next Happy Snaps post!). It was so nice to catch up with them over a cuppa – I’d been feeling really homesick, so a brief Forres break cheered me up no end!
I’m blogging briefly on my break between classes (as much as I will miss my lovely school, I’m going to love having my Saturday mornings back), before heading off for a weekend of fun. Matthew and I are heading up to his parents’ in the north east of the country. They are about four or five hours north, but luckily Matt and I love to roadtrip. We will probably even stop off for some awesomely greasy food at a Little Chef en route. I love Little Chefs – remind me of being wee! Then we’ll have dinner and drinks with his family. I’m looking forward to seeing them again, they are really nice. Then we are off to a christening tomorrow for two of Matthew’s friends little boy, Joseph. I’m excited to meet him!
Well, my class will be here any minute, so I will close. I hope you are all very well and have a pleasant weekend planned. Have fun!
