I can't believe it's been so long!

I know I haven't blogged for ages but I am going to fix that now. Right now. At 1 o clock in the morning, in my PJ's and thermal socks. It's actually been quite nice to step away from blogging for a few weeks but I am so ready to dive back in. So what have I actually been doing? Mostly knitting, dieting, going hard at the gym (where I have also been spending more time recently because our boiler has packed up. Luckily the gym has very nice shower facilities.), working, spending time with friends and most importantly, having some "me time" before uni starts again - which is Wednesday by the way. 

We had an awesome ladies night this month - finally saw my friend Amy for the first time in just over a year, she lives in Mansfield now and we hardly ever have time to meet up - we literally all have different working days and times so to get together really takes some effort. Firstly we went for a meal which was great to sit down, have lovely food (especially because of the diet, I've lost half a stone this month by the way) and then go out for a night on the town afterwards. It got pretty messy and resulted in a 2 day hangover. I don't actually mind this because I only drink once or twice a year nowadays so it's great to let our hair down a bit when we're all together again.

The knitting is going really well, though a lot of my friends have started following my Twitter account now so I can't really continue posting things that could be gifts for them... so that will have to be enough of that story I'm afraid. I am however going to be making a scarf for Chris next because he's jealous that I seem to be making things for "everyone" so I'm going to make him one, though I have never really followed a proper knitting pattern before so I am going to attempt to do that for his. I'll be able to post pictures and updates on that one. 

I am actually feeling very ready to start uni again. I have my reading list. I know what I'm doing. Only 1 year now and that's it. Next May it'll all be finishing and that will be it. I can't wait. Needless to say I am very excited about this Christmas. Ridiculously excited. I have even just watched a really awful film simply because it's set around the Christmas period. Ever watched The Holiday? Don't bother unless you're in the mood for a very bad but snuggly romance. I got under the warmest fleece ever and cuddled my Maximus while I was knitting and actually, really loved it. So yeah, if you find yourself in that kind of mood, I guess do watch it. Max is as handsome as ever by the way.

I will have to leave it at that for now but really look forward to getting back to regular blogging again. Hopefully it will help me keep organised and stay in a habit for uni work as well. What have you guys been getting upto recently? Tweet me or leave a comment, I'd love to hear what I've been missing out on.
