The amount of free time since finishing Uni is taking some getting used to, as is being able to get stuff done guilt free without Uni assessments in the back of my mind. Friday saw a night out with my Uni class mates to celebrate completion of our degree. It was nice seeing everyone one last time before we all head our separate ways.
My documents are posted off, so registration as a nurse is not far off, it's scary and exciting all at the same time, getting out into the real world putting all that theory into practice, and finally getting paid for it.
I've recently started a Pinterest account (Zar Anne), and my gosh is it addictive. There is so much crafty, gardening, baking and home inspiration out there. My 'to make' list has tripled as has my shopping list.
With the big move looming ever closer I've began digging up and potting a few garden plants to make the relocation with us, rhubarb, garlic chives, avocados and lemon grass.
The rhubarb, which I wasn't sure how it would handle being dug out of the garden, really surprised me, within a couple of days it had a new leaf sprouting and it now looks like this just over a week after being potted up. At this rate we'll be harvesting before the new year.
Also on the gardening front the avocado plants are doing well. After getting off to a slow start when transplanted from their germination place in the compost pile, they are now looking healthy and sprouting new leaves.
Our cat Tilly is back to her normal self after our other cat went missing. She went through a bit of a grieving phase with lots of pacing the house and meowing, calling for her friend I guess. She is quite enjoying the packing process now and all the cardboard box cubbies it provides.
And just a little reminder that tomorrow is your last chance to enter my little give-away which includes a splash of yellow bunting, vintage tea towels and a personalised wall hanging. I'll draw the winner on Thursday.
