An Update

Hello Blog,

So this week was my final week of classes for the year (calendar, not academic- still got one semester left) which is always a strange mix of relief and anxiety (hurrah it's nearly over, arghhh deadlines!) but now it is done.

It's one of those times that always feels busy and rushed but when someone asks what I've been up to I start umming and ahhing. I haven't really done anything, just tried to run around and tie up loose ends before heading home.

I leave next Thursday and before that I have the Classics society Christmas dinner, the final Brownies meeting and a trip to the ballet (Scottish Ballet's Hansel and Gretel- expect a review!)

Something that's surprised me is the weather, I'm not sure if I've adjusted to it or it really is not as bad this year as previous years, other people seem to be complaining but it hasn't really bothered me that much. It did snow today (for all of ten minutes) and there was a big storm last night, but compared to other Christmases I'm far less anxious about not making it home by train and ending up stranded in Penrith desperately putting up Gumtree adverts asking someone to come and rescue me. (Don't laugh, one year it took me 14 hours and another time I ended up having to phone around friends and find someone to put me up in Birmingham overnight, the route between Glasgow and Liverpool does not normally take one to Birmingham but they changed the destination when I was already on it)

Anyway, that's about it, I'm just trying to get myself into the habit of writing here more often (even if I have nothing to say it seems)
