September. How has it arrived so soon?! At the start of the summer holidays I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep occupied for the four months until my return to Bangor. In the past it has taken about 2 weeks for me to run out of things to do. However, this year I have struggled to fit everything in! I have a long list of things to do – clothes to make, paintings, macramé projects, knitting, books to read etc. – but just don’t seem to have time to cross any of them off! My family research has taken up a lot of time, but even that has taken a back seat at times. What with holidays, visits and general events to deal with, I have been busy all summer! My dissertation, unfortunately, has also been sidetracked When I get back to Bangor I MUST make a concentrated effort to dedicate some time to it!
This makes it sound like I don’t want to go back! I do, but I do like being home too 🙂 I love being able to pop over to my Grandparents whenever I like, I like having everything in one place, I enjoy my chats with my Mum while we do the weekly shop…all things not possible in Bangor. However, I do miss my friends whilst I’m home. I must admit that the majority of my friends do not live close by, and therefore a visit is a fore-planned event, often ending up quite pricey. In this respect, I’m looking forward to being within walking distance of most of them again 🙂 I also can’t wait for the term to start so I can start teaching belly dancing again 😛 After the success of last year, this year will be awesome! Haha no pressure girls 😛
