Bloggy Hell! I haven't posted in a million years
(Yes I LOVE Hyperbole!)
I have excuses, quite a few actually.
We had Ritchie's citizenship ceremony, which was lovely. The planned Afternoon Tea went off without a hitch, except for the fact that I forgot to take any photos of all the beautiful food. Thankfully Ritchie's Mum managed to snap a photo. Please excuse the wonky candle in the 'George Jensen' Cadelabra in the background.
Additionally Ritchie and I live in my Nan's old house, and due to our level of poverty are still using a fair bit of her furniture.
In addition to the citizenship ceremony on the 3/11/10, I was meant to take my car in for a service. I plum forgot.
Sorry Adamstown Car Doctors - I will phone and apologise on Monday.
I've also had a metric tonne of University work to complete, which is all done and dusted as of yesterday. I have one exam to go for the year. I've also enrolled in a required History course, which I've put off doing about ten times (it's really weird, because I actually LOVE History).
I'll be doing this course over the summer University break.
So those are my excuses, pretty lame, but there you have it. I've decided to do a bit of a '30 Things' post, you'll get the general gist of it once I've started.
I'm looking forward to reading/seeing/achieving/being/learning/etc.
