Right, I can finally say it.. I've finished and passed my first year of Creative Media Technology at University! The last few weeks really dragged as I knew I'd be home soon, but I made it, and I couldn't be happier. Mum came up to help pack everything and squish it into the car, but with two vacuum packs which took almost all of my wardrobe (I was seriously impressed), it didn't take as long or as much effort as we originally suspected. After a long 5 hour journey home on Thursday, I'm now settled in the countryside again, and I can't explain how refreshing it is to look out my window and see field after field!
Today is Mum's Birthday so we went for a walk along the seven sisters and for a pub lunch, before returning home for homemade (courtesy of moi) tea and cake. I've had a really lovely past couple of days, not to mention busy. The beautiful weather has put the cherry on the cake, and although I'm sure I'll soon be missing the partying and social scenes of Leeds, for now, I'm pretty content. I even made a delicious (if i say so myself) quiche, victoria sponge, and eccles cake on Friday ... recipes to come!
I'd also love love love it if you would be sweet enough to vote for 'Simple Sophie' in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards as 'best lifestyle blog'! Please let me know if you have, I'll love you forever <3
