I have fallen rather out of the habit of posting here, which is a bit of a shame really. I am however going to attempt to rememdy this. I suspect I might fail at this for a while as exam season is fast approaching and I'm getting slightly nervous (read: very very panic-y). On the other hand, I may end up posting lots as a means of procrastination. It all depends. The main issue I'm having at the moment is remembering things. Apart from a couple of parts of maths which I both can't remember and don't really understand. Various people are lending me notes and links to videos and stuff though, so I think (hope) I'll get there eventually.

On the plus side, I have discovered that one of my friends loves Lewis as much as I do. Sadly, Lewis is over again. It always finished far too soon for my liking. But Doctor Who is on, so that makes up for it really. That was one of the many sad things about having so many bank holiday Mondays. By the time I got to see everyone, I could barely remember what I wanted to talk to people about. Ah well, I did get lots of time off, even if I completely lost track of days of the week. I do not want anymore three day weeks. They confuse me so much.

Ooh, and Eurovision. Watched it with both my parents, various European foods and some cider. It was ridiculous and utterly awesome. I particularly enjoyed the signing for "all the deaf people who love eurovision" according to Graham Norton and the incredibly bizarre moment when we were at the top of the leader board. Great fun, although I'm glad we only do it once a year!

As of Wednesday, January exams are over for me! The relief is wonderful. Now I just have to wait until March for the results to come through and find out if I have to do any resits (but I'm trying not to think of that!). I am planning on breaking out some hot chocolate I got for Christmas to celebrate with. Also, lots of sleep. Lots and lots of sleep.

I also, rather bizarrely, seemed to have developed a social life. This is mainly because I've been and seen a bunch of people I know in class during lunch. I was too scared to do this last year, the whole going off and making new friends thing, but it's really rather nice. I didn't think I could do it but I can and it's awesome! :D

In other exciting news, England finally won an ODI in Australia and I am refusing to watch this week's Silent Witness. It sounds far too traumatic for me to be able to handle. I am however enjoying Human Planet and Men of Rock (which took my brother five minutes to realise wasn't about music, and was actually about rocks).

And this evening I am going to eat lots of chocolate cake and then sleep for ages! I'm looking forward to it.

I have been watching a lot of the Twenty20 Cricket World Cup over the past couple of days. It is awesome and makes me all kinds of happy. Although I am probably too emotionally involved in cricket. I got rather angry the other day when Lumb got out, even though it was the correct decision. I now understand my dad and brother's response to pretty much every sport under the sun. Even if Twenty20 isn't quite the same as a full Test, it's what got me interested in the first place and in my opinion, some cricket is better than no cricket!

On Tuesday I am going to Liverpool to watch my brother play football in a national final at Anfield. I am rather excited and nervous about this. I went to watch their quarter final (which, luckily was a home match) which was rather tense. Although that may have been because it went to added time, then penalties and then sudden death penalties before they finally won. I plan on taking my knitting with me so I can sit there and look like I'm watching whilst not paying a great deal of attention. I want them to win, but I don't think my nerves can cope with watching the whole match. And on the plus side, as it's in Liverpool, all my cousins who now live up there can come and watch. There should be lots of supporters there. They've got a double decker coach, an ordinary coach and numerous completely full cars going up on the day. The team are going up on Monday (which means I won't see my brother on my birthday!), staying in a hotel before going on to do a bunch of team stuff. To say my brother is being unbearably excited is an understatement.

I thoroughly enjoyed Doctor Who last night. I want to watch it again, although not sure when I'll get round to it. I spent a lot of time laughing which was good. I like to come away from watching Doctor Who feeling all warm and fuzzy. And straight afterwards we watched Thursday's Outnumbered, which was hilarious as usual. And tonight I get to watch Lewis! Aww, Lewis.

I have been having a very pleasant afternoon since I got back from work earlier. Well, once I'd managed to get up from where I sat down on the floor and promptly nearly fell asleep. I watched The Railway Children on the tv and got all teary eyed. I'd forgotten how sad parts of it made me. I still have a story tape of it somewhere. I am now watching a Poirot - one of the ones set in the desert. Not sure if it's the one with falling masonry or not yet, but I've definitely seen it before. For someone who appears to detest being around so much sand, Poirot seems to spend an awful lot of time visiting deserts. Although, I've probably seen most of the David Suchet Poirot episodes now.

I am now going to go and pick up the curry with my Dad, eat myself silly and then go to bed very very early. Which hopefully will be nice and pleasant and everything as well!
