Monthly Archives: November 2010


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 we both giggled at 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.
