April 2015

*10 points if you can spot me in that photo 
April was the month of eating far too much chocolate and a nice three week break from uni. I must admit, I spent most of April seriously stressing about deadlines and exams, I don't know what's happened to me, I've gone from someone who was so relaxed about exams to a serious stress head! To try and relieve the stress I made quite a few plans with friends as a few were home from uni for Easter, maybe a little too many plans and a lot less uni work. 

The Easter weekend was a pretty good one, I worked the Friday, Saturday and Monday but we had a work night out on the Saturday to celebrate a birthday and the fact that for once, we were all off on the Sunday as the cafe was closed. It was SO good to have a chilled Sunday off considering I often work all weekend, every weekend. It began with a long lie in, then my grandma visited and I had my first Sunday roast in so long, topping it off by sitting in the sun in the garden and later on, we may have gotten pizza. 

I actually finally ventured into the world of exercise classes at the beginning of April with my friend, we decided on spinning and wow, what a burn! It was named beginners spinning and I may have been a bit too cocky thinking it was going to be easy as I was kind of regular gym goer. It wasn't easy. I did enjoy it though, we just haven't been back as we were only on a short term contract whilst my friend was home for Easter. I made the most of her being home by making plans, even if they were just gym sessions or study dates, we did have a nice pub lunch one day and a BBQ too and along with another friend, we booked a holiday! We're jetting off to Barcelona at the end of June for four nights, it feels so good to finally have something booked to look forward too, any Barcelona recommendations are very welcome! 

There was a date night at our usual county pub/restaurant and another at the cinema to see Fast and Furious 7 which is incredible. I was never really that into the previous ones but Lee loves them so I went along and it totally surpassed my expectations, the ending is super emotional. We also had a catch up with our two closest friends involving a burger and a brownie at the pub followed by drinks one night and a pizza and movie night the next. The end of the month was spent frantically trying to finish my last few assignments and dog sitting Lees dads gorgeous dog, at least dog cuddles made it easier. I am now one presentation, one assignment and three exams (20 days!) away from Summer and all I can do is make multiple mental lists of all the things I want to do once I'm free. I hope you had a lovely April.

  4. I think Easter seems like it was so long ago, It's hard to believe it was April! Sounds like you had a busy and fun month. I hope your stress over exams reduces soon. I'm sure you will do great :) x
