First of all thanks to you all for sticking around whilst I went off to do those things they call exams. As you may have guessed I am now no longer a sixthformer, no longer a school student. It's weird to say the least. I left officially on Monday after my General Studies exam yet I still feel as though I should be revising for something.
*Look at me just casually showing off my new ring*
Unlike most young British teenagers I did not celebrate my new found freedom by dolling myself up and going on a wild night out, in which I would have lost my dignity only remembering that I had done so through the use of some blurry pictures. No, I'm not cool enough for that.
Instead I went out for a cuppa with a couple close friends. I ended up going back to one of my friends house where we had yet more tea and she taught me how to knit.
I am such an old woman.
*My first ever attempt at knitting*
Now I know that little small square doesn't seem that impressive but there's two different knits there. I don't reckon that's bad for a beginner. Just ignore the holes.
I'm hoping that my knitting skills will improve and then I am going to knit everything. Just you wait.
My friend also lent me some summer reads so I can occupy myself whilst everyone else is off on their travels. She's off backpacking around Europe for a month. And at the end of this week my other friend is off around Italy for two weeks. Makes me wish I was jetting off somewhere too, but I'm excited for them and can't wait to see all the pictures and whatnot.
In other news, I finally got a sim card for my Iphone that my dad got me when I went to see him. I wasn't that bothered by it to be honest as I quite like my little 10 pound samsung, but I thought 'why not?' as I've never had one of these fancy phones. I spent about half an hour in the Orange shop trying to sort it out with my stomach rumbling whilst my friends went off for lunch. At least the guy who was serving me was rather amusing.
Anyway, this was just an update-y kind of post for ya. I should be posting regularly from now on and I have a huge list of DIY things I want to do so expect some of that going on. In the mean time I hope you're all well.
I'm gonna go have some ice-cream now then head off to Josie's to watch Titanic.
Because I'm listening to it now.
