The House Might Be Cold, But I Have A Furry Lap Warmer

It's amazing, my kitten Jinx, who used to be scared of her own shadow, has gotten brave enough to actually sit on my lap. I feel so loved!
It's a little odd (& cold) at home, but I'm getting used to it. Tilly came over yesterday to see me & swap presents with me & Emily. I had to laugh, he & Emily both got each other the new Mighty Boosh Live DVD. I got him a Dr Pepper t-shirt (because that's all he ever drinks & I thought it would make him laugh) & he said it was "epic" which is quite a compliment coming from him. He also get me a top, but Jesus! I swear it's just a bit of net. Admittedly it didn't look so revealing on, but I will only be wearing it whilst clubbing, not out around town (especially not in this whether! The snow is still holding on strong).
Lord, I had to drive in the snow today, for the first time ever. I didn't crash & die, so I must have been doing something right.
I spoke to Adam & we are going around Tilly's with Emily on Wednesday. Me & Emily are going to try & set him up with one of Emily's friends (who is, confusingly, also called Emily). This should be interesting!

Home Sweet Home

I'm finally home! I really should have been home yesterday, but the snow that fell on Bury (& was destoried by the London smog) made traffic crazy & my Mum couldn't come get me. But I'm here now.
Me & Jonny saw Lauren off yesterday as she got her train to Liverpool & we all had a meal together, which was nice. Then this morning me & Jonny went to Covent Garden to help him find Christmas presents.
I'll miss everyone from London so much. This first term was so amazing I can't wait for next year! But for now I'm home, my kitten Jinx sleeping by my feet & ten ton of ever increasing snow outside. & it feels pretty damn good!

Ok, maybe technically not as Uni wasn't cancelled (I went in & handed in my worked, glad that's done!) but it's finally snowing! I love snow! Me & Jonny made snow angels, I ganged up on him with Lauren & a load of snow balls & convinced Lee to come out & freeze his hands. I felt five again!   
As our it was our last night together in halls till the New Year, me, Jonny & Lauren had Chinese together & Jonny made a lovely speech (for once without taking the piss out of anyone!). It was very sweet.
Lee was also sweet enough to come see me yesterday as I was texting him at 1am Tuesday when I felt like shit & he wanted to cheer me up (it worked). I feel really guilty though as he got me a present, but I didn't think we were going to get each other anything so I didn't get him one. Still, that was so nice of him.
Oh I don't want to leave!
But I can't wait to go home, help Mum make Christmas cakes & hang out with my sister Emily (I feel like I haven't seen her for years!). It's so odd, I feel like I've been in London for ages, but whenever I tell myself that Christmas is only a week away it doesn't sound right.
It's been a great day, & I can't wait to come back & see everyone. But I'm going home! Woo!
I have zero fears or doubts about my life in Uni now. & next year is going to be fucking fantastic!

*Think Positive, Think Postive, Think Positive*

It's hard to be positive sometimes. I always knew my ex was a liar, but I found a teddy he gave me ages ago, apparently "especially made for me", & I found where he'd cut off the tag. I guess that just made it real to me. & it hurt. I know I'm only young, but I honestly think that he was my first love. Finding out that he wasn't the person I thought he was, that he lied & probably cheated, just makes me feel so used. It's never fun having your heart broken.
But I must be positive (& stop crying); isn't this what this blog is all about?
I went to Covent Garden again, with Lauren this time. Managed to find a nice (& cheap) red leather skirt, drumstick pencils (don't ask) & another present for my sister, Emily.
I also managed to nearly fucking lose it all by leaving on a cafe floor because I'm so fucking stupid. Luckily it was just sitting where I'd left it & the man who'd taken my seat was nice enough not to steal anything.

& I've insulted & pissed off one of my favourite authors. God, this is not my day.
I'm off to tell Jonny he's going to hell for being gay, call Lauren a dirty thief like everyone else from Liverpool & call Charly a posh stuck up bitch. Just to make the day complete.

A Day Of Work (Ok, A Few Hours Really)

I have no lectures this week *dances* but of course this means I have to find something to do, or go insane with boredom. & being insane is no fun alone.
So today was my day to get most of my Uni work done. Now I'll admit, when it comes to work, I'm one of those people who tend to leave it. Luckily, not quite till the last minute; I've never missed a deadline & I've never had to pull an all nighter. But I do leave it for quite a while, & end up having to kick myself to do it about a week or so before it's due. I'll try & be better in Uni, but really it could be worse.
The really stupid thing is I know my work isn't exactly hard. Hell, I proved that to myself today. I made myself sit down & write it & was done with one in less that 20 minutes. But maybe that's why I do put it off, thinking "oh, it's not that hard, it won't take me that long I can afford to relax now & work later".
But I always feel a bit happier when it done & out of the way with.
This eveing was spent in the kitchen with Jonny, Lauren & Charly watching Charly try to teach Lauren how to wrap Christmas presents. It was very funny. I love hang out with my mates.
