Pretty new things

My very fun new manicure from Isis

And my lovely new shoes from Witner, isn't the colour fabulous!?

Yesterday was one of those rare and enjoyable days of doing girly things by myself :)

Happy Monday

I've been a little neglectful of my little old blog so far this year, so it feels only right that I start off with a Happy Monday.

This Monday is a happy one because I am finally on holidays ... from everything! The summer semester of uni, which I probably shouldn't have taken on, was completed yesterday evening. Due to lack of organisation (not usually one of my faults) and poor timing, I found myself with three essays and a quiz due over the last three days. None of which I had made any serious attempt at!

The weekend was hard, essay after essay and no time for breathing. Yesterday, especially was not a happy day. I was left with one essay, one that I hadn't even picked a topic for, I couldn't have been any less prepared if I tried! I spent 16 hours sitting in front of my computer yesterday. 16 hours of reading, research, writing and rewriting and I finally managed to get my [not very well written] essay submitted 1 hour before the deadline!

My Matty was a gem. He cooked, cleaned, brought me cups of tea, and supplied my desk with these fabulously pink roses! Pretty flowers can make even the most stressful day bearable!

...and so I say HAPPY MONDAY because yesterday is finally over! I am drained, and in a kind of trance, but it's done!
