Hello! God time goes so fast in Cambridge, I felt like I’d posted really recently and it was actually over a week ago. Have many photos and lots of words to make up for it.
1&7: sunrise during a morning outing and sunset from my bedroom window
2&4: selfies from the boat club dinner last Saturday. I finally got to wear my new River Island dress, felt very sexy and sophisticated and got many compliments.
3&5: it was my dad’s bday last weekend, so him and my mum rented a cottage out in the fens near Cambridge, and I went to see them on Sunday afternoon for a MASSIVE roast lunch (feat. bday cake and some amazing cheese). The main attraction was being reunited with my little one who basically looks like a giant walking burr atm because her hair is so long. For non-Brits, the fens are an area of East Anglia which are incredibly flat, and criss-crossed with loads of drainage canals because it’s all at sea level. Apart from trees and a few houses there’s nothing on the horizon at all, which is amazing; the sky looks so big
6: then on Sunday evening I went to an event in support of breast cancer charities. It was in one of the Cambridge museums and there was music playing and drinks and endless pink cupcakes/cookies. Such a lovely evening, and good to know we were contributing to a good cause as well.
8&9: not hating my legs atm
10: this morning I ran 14.2km, with an average of 5:11min/km, which for me is really really decent! My legs are absolutely fucked now, but I’m really proud of how much I’ve pushed myself with my running this term and how much I’ve come on: at the start of term I was running 10k in an hour and now look at me! On Tuesday I also ran my normal 6k route in under 30 mins, which was my goal for this term, so it’s been a good week for running!
Some other things:
- The uni charities team organised a Come Dine With Me across the university, where they match you and 2 friends up with 3 people from another college and you each take turns cooking for each other. We cooked on Tuesday and managed a great meal despite only having 2 hobs and a microwave (#studentlyf); the return visit is tomorrow, I’m looking forward to it!
- My boyfriend is coming up this afternoon – I haven’t seen him in 2 weeks so am v excited to see him. He’s got a big reunion dinner this evening with all the #lads, so I’m anticipating a drunken return home at 2am…joys.
- Tomorrow night (following Come Dine With Me round 2) there’s a Backtracks club night where they only play old school music from the 80s/90s/2000s. It’s going to be great
- AND ON SUNDAY EVENING I AM SEEING CLEAN BANDIT LIVE AAAAAAAAAAAAH
