I’m not letting November slink past without an update. Here are some things that happened.
I couldn’t sleep.
Neither could Humphrey.
I got dressed up for a birthday party.
My little sister turned 20.
I went home and spent time with my mum, mostly in front of this:
…and then later, this:
I saw a huge empty nest.
I went back to university.
I admired the fog.
I turned 22.
And I had a party with my friends. Well, a feast.
I was very pink of face.
I wore a tiara and turned very red of face as TGIs sang Happy Birthday to me.
And, yesterday, I was swept through campus and into my Shakespeare seminar by hundreds of student protesters.
Other November things…Today it snowed. I went on a FABULOUS spa day with my two oldest friends, but haven’t seen any photos yet. I was rejected by Southampton for PGCE, and am waiting to hear from Portsmouth. I took a very deep breath and revealed what I’ve always wanted to do and sent off an application to train as a midwife. I read ‘I Shall Wear Midnight’ by Terry Pratchett. I was thrilled for Prince William and Catherine Middleton, and coveted her dress. And her hair. And ok, maybe also that huge ring and the fact that she will soon be a real live princess.
This November has definitely been one of highs and lows. I’m looking forward to December now.
