The Best Weekend Ever

I'm not really a Valentine's-Day-celebrating kind of gal, but this year I decided to go all out and have my boyf come to visit me for the weekend. There were Valentine's cards, flowers, a meal out, pizza night in, and lots and lots of Netflix. We also decided to walk the whole way around Chester's city walls (don't know how unfit me managed, to be quite honest) and we headed to a cute little pancake shop to revive us after about half an hour's walking (like I said, I'm really unfit!).

We also made some delicious burgers from Aldi's cheapest mince, Aldi's cheapest bacon, and Aldi's cheese-topped buns which are a gift from god. (By "we", I mean Tom made them, and I watched intently from a kitchen chair.) I ate it in about two seconds flat because it was so yummy. Compliments to the chef.

I know these types of posts are probably of like 1% interest to a lot of people but this blog has kind of gone from something I know other bloggers are reading and commenting on and being interested in, to an archive of parts of my life, which only me and about three other people actually read. And I'm okay with that. Yes, I'm getting maybe one hundredth of the views I was getting this time a year ago, but it's totally fine because looking back on my posts from last week, last month, last year, makes me smile a lot. I like documenting this all, even if it's just for me to read.

To those fabulous (approx 3-4) people who do take a peek at each post, hi, and I hope you're doing well and having fun! x

Every now and then you know I think you're crazy

I'm aiming for two posts a month now, to actually try and motivate me to document some of my life on this blog, which is what it should be for. Since I last wrote on here, I've been to see Jessie Ware in Manchester which was so rad, I've done another assessment (which is perhaps the most shockingly written essay I've ever done!), and I got my marks back for my second and third assessments. Say hi to the person who got the highest mark out of everyone the whole English language course, both single and combined honours (?!?!?!?!?). (That's me, by the way...) I also got my first 2.1 on the other assignment which I'm happy with because that's actually a halfway decent grade, you know.

Here's what my £5 illegal merchandise Jessie Ware tshirt looks like:

It's chill though, Jessiebabe approves because she tweeted that she wants one of these nice looking illegal tshirts. I don't even feel bad anymore!

The highlight of the past couple of weeks though has been getting a visit from my wonderful boyf who I'd been parted from for a whole month (!!!!). He told me he was coming at 10.30pm, so when he actually rang at 4.30pm to say he was standing outside and could I please let him in, you can imagine my surprise! I was in the bath, one leg shaved and one not, so it wasn't the best timing ever. But we did have a great weekend, consisting of pizza, lots of Rekorderlig cider, a trip to Central Perk, and some fried chicken. Here's some photographic evidence of all the fun that went on:

I've also been hitting the clubs recently with my best friends soon-to-be-housemates, and ruining what would have been a nice group photo: 

Well done, me.

Song of the day:
