I was sat in my gran's house (I'm staying with her before I move in at Sussex...the joy!), going through the millions of papers etc in my bag when a laminated bit of paper, no different from the others, caught my eye. It was entitled 'Sussex Blog Competition 2010.' I decided to take this as a sign from God, or some other cosmic energy and decided to go for it :) Of course, that kind of rationale often lands me in hot water -e.g. the time I blew all my money on a dress because the first one in the rack was my size (obviously it was fate and I was meant to have it...my mum didn't see it in quite the same way) , but this decision won't cost me over £20 so it seems fairly safe.
I've been here in my gran's house for close to a week, after leaving my family in Dubai. The airport goodbye was really sad. My mum and dad hugged me to death and uninhibitedly cried in the middle of the airport. A bit cringe but I understood. My brother didn't seem bothered at all! He gave me a quick hug and said 'Yeah.Bye. See you at Christmas.' Oh wow, thanks...
I love my gran but can't wait to be with people you can converse with without shouting! We're roadtripping to Brighton tomorrow, spending a night in a Travelodge and then it's non-stop to Sussex!
Absolutley can't wait to experience and blog about everything!
