A lifestyle roundup of my week at university featuring all I've bought, watched, eaten, seen and been up to. Featuring my birthday, afternoon tea and booking a trip to Bali
This week started off really well, with my family and I organising (and booking) our holiday for this summer... We're off to Bali and I couldn't be more excited! We'll be out there for a fortnight, which will be plenty of time to soak up some sun, a bit of beaching and plenty of exploring! If anyone has ever been to Bali I'd love to hear your recommendations.

Monday was my birthday!! I turned 20, and it's fair to say I don't feel any different. I still feel 15 at heart and look about 12, but I'm officially starting to enter the realm of 'proper adulthood'. I had the nicest day, which I've already posted about actually - you can read that here. Spoiler; it contained a lot of good food, cocktails, and way too much shopping.

During the week, one of my uni besties and I headed to a beach near to my family house and we had the nicest afternoon. It was such a lovely sunny day, which after the recent snowstorms, was a welcome and much-appreciated change. We also had afternoon tea accompanied by a whole lot of catching up. We hadn't even been apart a week, but when you're used to living 24/7 with someone, a few days feels a lifetime, and there's a lot of trivial stuff to catch up on.

The next day saw me catch up with some of my school friends, who I hadn't seen since New Year's Eve, and it was so good. We went for burgers and cocktails, and then went on an impromptu pub crawl. Hooray for daytime drinking and hanging out with good friends! They're exactly the friends that you can go weeks without speaking to, but when you do meet up it's as if nothing ever changed...

This week I also bought my backpack for my Southeast Asia trip this summer, and it's all starting to feel very real! I really am going to be spending 5 weeks living out of a backpack, wandering through three different countries, seeing the world with my gal... Wow. It's fair ro say that it was only whilst stood in Go Outdoors did I realise quite how short my back is, the majority of the bags absolutely swamped me and I'd probably only manage about 10 steps with one of them on my back. 

For weeks I've been threatening to cook my Dad some of my staple uni meals and this week I finally got around to making one: Chorizo Gnocci. It's not particularly extravagant nor is it difficult to make, but it's cheap, healthy and tasty! He said he really enjoyed it, so high praise indeed! Let's hope the rest of my student concoctions go down quite so well!
