It’s been quite a busy weekend in the realm of Holmes and I’m feeling good. There are two days left of this internship and let’s be honest…it’s about time. I’m ready for the next chapter (I have been since January, but we’ll skip over that) and I feel like something important is on the horizon. I could be very wrong, but for the first time in a while I feel reasonably positive about the upcoming weeks.
I was invited to a Macmillan Night In on Friday evening which turned out to be a truly excellent event; not only were more than £100 raised, but it was also highly enjoyable, excluding the very sore head that I had in the morning 😦
After recovering on Saturday morning, Mum and Dad brought me back to York for a lovely pub lunch and a spot of shopping in the city centre, which is always nice because I never see it anymore, with working in Castleford for the last year. I didn’t buy anything, except a bathroom bin (loving adulthood, by the way) and a pasta bake for dinner. Then Lisa arrived at my house! This girl disappeared off to London to live the high life and we never get to see each other but nothing ever changes when we actually do; it’s like she’s never been away. So together with Sam we enjoyed nice night in with some cider and movies rather than going out on the razz which I’m pretty sure I would not have managed..
Yesterday (Sunday) Lisa and I took a trip into town again for some shopping (shampoo and nail polish this time) and then a nice relaxed afternoon in a coffee shop. What’s been especially great about this weekend is that it’s gone quite slowly at a nice pace. I think it’s because I know this whole ordeal is coming to an end. I’m planning on writing a long honest piece about my experience here because I think it’s changed me. It needs analysing; was it really that bad of a time (probably)?
Here’s to the next two days of – hopefully – quizzes and random DVDs in lessons. 🙂
