It's a free bag innit?!

Went to Goldsmiths university for an applicants day today. It lasted from 12-5 pm and of that I'd say about 2hrs were spent in any productive way. I was actually quite unimpressed by the whole thing. When I went to the open day at Queen Mary uni I came away with a great feeling about the place. A real "yeah, I want to study here" kind of feeling. Didn't get that from Goldsmiths.
I did get a canvas bag and various bits of chocolate. So the day wasn't a complete waste!

I can be organised if I want to be

I like to tick things of my to do list/hand when they're done.

Number one!

After a lot of waiting and a delivery that perhaps did not go as smoothly as my darling sister had hoped, her beautiful daughter, my niece, finally arrived at 03.02 on Friday the 17th.
And she promptly stole my heart.
She is the most perfect thing I have ever seen, and so fascinating even though she doesn't do much.

I still can't quite get my head around my sister being a mum. When she says things like "my daughter" I think "You can't possibly have a daughter, you're just a baby yourself!" It feels a bit surreal, like it's all just pretend!

And my heart aches every minute I am away from this miracle. It has now been 3 days since I last saw her, held her, stroked her soft skin. And with this cold/flu/black death that has taken hold of my body it will be a while before I see her again. I am counting the minutes!

Breaking the fast

I confess, I have jumped on the smoothie bandwagon. Mainly because I'm not very good at eating breakfast (as in I don't) so on the days I'm at college I always find myself starving just before my first lesson and end up buying a chocolate croissant or similar. So in an effort to be more healthy and save some pennies I have started making smoothies that I can take with me and drink on my way there or during the morning lesson.

I just blend some fruit, natural yoghurt and a scoop of protein powder. That way I get some of my 5 a day, calcium and protein. And they're also really filling!

I am still in the process of trying out flavour combination, one of the problems being that I don't like bananas. Today's smoothie is apple and kiwi. I also added some apple juice for a bit of extra sweetness and to make it less thick.
