What do you do over 7 weeks of holiday?

One amazing thing about working in a school is the holiday time. This is supplemented when you work in a boarding school and at random points in the holiday you get an extra week, summer holiday being one of these holidays.

3 years later and I finally made it

Today is the anniversary of an absolutely amazing day in my life. Graduation Day. This day is the culmination of at least three years of hard work for a whole degrees worth of people, and longer for some.

11 drinks and a hell of a hangover later

So contrary to this blog, I don’t actually drink often, however my old housemate texted me on Thursday saying the famous words ‘spontaneous drinks on Friday?’ And so I found myself in Bond cocktail bar on Friday night drinking Pornstar Martinis on a fabulous 241 offer. As me and Alice set the world to rights,… Continue reading 11 drinks and a hell of a hangover later
