Me in September
September was mostly taken up with me getting ready to move in with my boyfriend. There was a lot of organising, donating, and packing to do. I’ve gotten rid of tonnes of clothes that are now too big for me, and I think I must have donated at least sixty books that I have read and know I’m never going to read again. It was incredibly sad to see my library slowly start to disappear, but at the same time I now have space for more books as I’ve only kept favourites and books that actually mean something to me. I don’t know why I was hanging on to books that I didn’t love, or books that I only rated two stars.
I moved house at the weekend, and as of right now the flat is a bit messy. We’re slowly putting everything together, and I’ve got the whole week off work so I can start making it look a bit more homely.
A group of friends and I went to Thorpe Park (an amusement park in the south of England) earlier in the month. We managed to get quite lucky with the weather, as it only started to rain just as we were about to leave. I had a really good day, although I’ve realised that the food at Thorpe Park is really disappointing, and next time I go I’m going to take a picnic and store it in a locker until lunchtime. Because we went during the week, the queues weren’t too long. The longest we waited for a ride was 45 minutes for the Derren Brown Ghost Train, which really wasn’t worth the wait. We pretty much walked straight on to everything else.
We also went to Whipsnade Zoo, which is absolutely massive. Whipsnade is, in my opinion, so much better than London Zoo because it’s bigger, and you have the chance to get a lot closer to the animals. I didn’t get to see the baby hippo called Hodor, which I was really excited about, but it was a great day nonetheless.
