It is time....
to update Livejournal.
I successfully refrained from doing so yesterday, when I had my investigation to do (only got 3 hours sleep), which I really should have done over Easter or even on Wednesday when I had the day off. However I spent that day very constructively........or not. Luke went back to Wycombe in the morning and then Becky & I iced some biscuits (the dough was the left over lemon one, that I made with Emily we should soooooo have made brownies......the war is not over!
) Spot the HP inspired ( oneCollapse )
Then instead of doing work I made a raspberry & choc pudding mmmmmmmmmmmmm before joining a party of intrepid explorers off in search of the fabled Chinese circus. It was discovered and tickets for Sat night purchased. I have never been to the circus before.
In exciting news I might be going sailing on Sun. I was in my room feeling v. tired so I decided to text Jennie (who I met on the Spain field course) to see if she wanted to watch DVD's. She couldn't but instead she asked if I wanted to go sailing with her on Sun to the Isle of Wight where we could stay at a pub then come back on Mon! I don't need to bring more than £10! I have however never sailed before, hmmmmmmmm, could be interesting.
The Field trip to Spain was great, enormous, fantastic etc. fun.I saw a lizard, a scorpion and a 15cm long centipede, the latter got drowned in ethanol before being pinned to the wall (I did not do this), one poor butterfly was put in the deep freezer. I held a wild terrapin, a sea cucumber and an antlion. I caught a crab, a poisonous spider, a sea anenome and ( an octopus!!!Collapse )
+ loads of other athropods some of which also got pinned to the wall (I did not do this).
We also spent a couple of days picking flowers, I supressed urges to skip. A group of us also failed spectacularly to catch mole crickets in the dark, we were duped by a plastic bag that did a very good impersonation.
It lasted 2 weeks, its just a pity it wasn't during term time instead of over the vacation. The weather though was fantastic, the first day was cloudy and one day it rained but apart from that the temp reached 30 degrees and it was v.sunny. Nearly everybody got a tan bar me as I wore factor 40, but I also didn't get burned. I tend not to get tanned, I just go red then back to white anyway, nevermind.
It wasn't all fun and games though (there was a pool and a jacuzi(sp)) it was a unit of the course and we lost 5% of our marks for every morning we failed to get to breakfast for 8.30 and we had to climb a huge hill/mountain-type thing twice. Not to mention the tests and field project stuff. I managed 82% though, yay. Thinking about it though I really ought to have failed it so I could retake it ^^, maybe not.
Can't think of much else now, I'm pretty shattered, might watch A knight's tale or something though. I think I'm going to be back home this Thurs for my Nan's b'day and to say bye to Hannah. I may update before then........if I don't drown on Sun that is. ^^
