How lovely are these little flowers in the photo above, we get them in the garden every year and they are just so beautiful. They are meant to be pink, but they kind of look more purple. Last week my mum and I went to Sandringham Woods to have a picnic in the woods. I was able to take some lovely photos of some squirrels that came out to say hello and some of the trees in the woods. It’s so relaxing just sitting in the woods listening to all of the birds and seeing the little animals running about. Just thinking about it, makes me want to go there right now.
I’m now officially a second year Audio Production student, Yay. You may have seen on Wednesday’s post that I have started back at University this week. It was so nice to be back again. I’m also really excited to be studying my two options that I have chosen, which are Radio and Sound and Audio for Visual Production. I’ve also got a few ideas for some University posts that will be coming out soon. I travel in to University as I still live at home, so i’ve got a few travel tips coming soon too. I’ve also been trying to get in a better sleep routine. I’m always saying that I’m going to get to bed early and then it just gets later and later! Although Friday night I did actually go to bed at 9:30pm, which I think has to be the earliest I’ve gone to bed in a long time. As I travel in to University, It’s always good to get an early night, that’s definitely something on my list that I need to do.
Books I am loving

5 Happy Things
I’ve decided to include in this weeks Sunday Thoughts, 5 Happy Things. I think it’s great to think and write about the things that have made us happy.
1. Starting back at University.
2. Seeing some of my friends that I haven’t seen all summer.
3. My mums vegetable stew and dumplings and fruit crumble.
4. Staying round my dads.
5. Seeing my nan and having some tea with her.
I’ve really been obsessed with vegetables recently, my favourites are butternut squash, mushrooms, potato, broccoli, pak choi and aubergine. I love adding some salmon or tuna steak to the vegetables with some herbs. I’ve noticed that a lot of my recipes recently seem to be desserts, so I’ve decided i’m going to be doing some more main course type recipes.

I recently purchased the Simple, Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub. I’m really loving it, i’ve been after a facial scrub for quite a while now, especially one that is perfume free. I got this one from Boots, as it was on offer. I use it once or twice a week as I don’t like to use scrubs too often as I have quite sensitive skin. I’m going to be doing my night time skin routine post very soon.
