It begins!

I wanted to make this post yesterday but , after having got in after 11pm and with a 9am start the next morning (I know that sounds lame but I’m getting older and I like my sleep :P) I decided to leave it till later to write something about it. The weather was surprisingly amazing – which I as usual didn’t anticipate and came complete with jumper dress, tweed jacket and huge umbrella! The grounds looked frigging fantastic when blessed by the sun, which I hope I will see a lot more of in the 3 years I spend there!

One thing’s for sure – I will lose a heck of a lot of weight! I often get lost and the woods of RHUL are no exception – but with the scenic walk and hills (yes, I love hills), it’s quite fun to get lost if you don’t need to get anywhere too urgently.

I finally got my card made, running low on fuel after trekking around for an absolute age, and I got a little too excited that I can put money on it to purchase things – it also means I better not lose it any time soon!

I also met some nice people around the campus and at the postgraduate welcome – everyone is so open and friendly – in the picture gallery, and my, is that place splendidly ornate! I have really been spoilt in terms of eye candy and I can’t wait to get stuck in with everything!

It’s finally here!

In my graduation post, I mentioned briefly that my ring was being busily worked away and around 8 weeks later, this beautiful baby made its way to me this week.

It’s got my name and course engraved in the inside of the band – and if I get a better way of taking more detailed pictures I will try and capture it!

I want to thank my parents for this lovely gift – they got it for me at the graduation itself after 5 years of insanity! Loved every bit 🙂
