Snap Happy Sunday.

As I'm far too hungover and have nothing to take photos of today, here are some of the photos I took at my friends beautiful wedding reception yesterday. Enjoy!

Oh, and here's a photo of my partner B and I waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. :)

Exam Day.

Hey guys! Well, I had my exam this afternoon.. pretty sure I aced it too. :) I'm so glad that it's all over now and I can finally start my holidays. I've had the most boring past week and been the biggest nerd, so this week my aim is to make the daily effort to look and feel beautiful.. and to steal my partners camera long enough to take some half decent shots. He's obsessed with his little camera (the one in my blog header) and decided to purchase yet another lens for it today. Here are a few of the shots he took whilst mucking around with it. I feel bad putting my name on his photos, but he wouldn't let me put his name and I just wanted to show them off. I am secretly jealous of his artistic abilities (and his large brain, lol).. anyway, enjoy!

Me being a nerd.


Qwerty keyboard.


Me, though I'm not really this pale.

Oh and here's one of the photos that I actually took. Can you see the difference? I'm clearly lacking in the creativity department. :P

'Chuck Bass' watching me watching him.

My week in pictures.

So since I came down with a cold and had nothing to do for seven days straight but study for a numeracy exam that I am repeating for the second time (third if you count the resit that I failed from last time) I decided to document my craptacular week in photographs that I took using the roidizer app on my HTC Wildfire. Enjoy!

A little bit of study.

The day my cold took over.

Still feeling sick.

Bought Chuck a new fish bowl.

Basically wrote my own text book.

Started the chores.

Finished the chores. :D

Sausage Dog Saturday.

Hi there, and welcome to my blog!

This is actually my first official written post (accompanied by some pictures of course) as I am finally on holidays from Uni. :) I've still got one more exam on the 20th of June but I've got plenty of spare time to study for it now so I'm not too stressed. For those who don't already know, I am studying to be a primary school teacher. I failed a subject (numeracy) and dropped one or two along the way so I won't technically be finished until June 2013, but that's okay with me. :)

Anyway, this morning, on my first day of holidays I... slept in, had Macca's for brekky (made it to the drive thru window for exactly 10.30am), and just made it to my local post office before closing time (11am!) to collect a parcel containing the following:

Peter Alexander Penny Dog Pajamas.

Random Freebie.

Then after returning home to do a little bit of much needed housework I took myself off to Westfield to pick up my mended (resoled) gorgeous black winter boots! As for right now I think it's definitely time for me to make myself a warm milo, curl up under a nice blanket and play some extreme level sudoku. :) 

If anyone knows of any blog challenges or just some interesting blogs for me to follow, please let me know. Thanks for reading and hopefully I will be back soon.
