It has been a while since I was that active online, however I am seeking to make up for that now I am back at home. The thing is I have just returned form a job working away in Cambridge. I stayed away from home during the week which was quite an experience. The company put me and another girl up in a lovely B&B which was a farmhouse. This meant I learnt to make toast on an aga cooker as well debating how to cook other items that I would normally have no problem with. Most nights we were accompanied in our cooking by two of the residents of the b&b, which were the owner's two dogs. Cooking with a Great Dane and a Dalmatian was an experience but they were both so cute you couldn't help but let them sit in the most inconvenient places. The farm was set in the countryside with horses grazing in the fields surrounding it. I would have liked to explore more but work stopped my wanderings.
One weekend whilst I was there I went into Cambridge and spent a day looking around the city. Ended up there during graduation day for the university, so it was crowded everywhere. It also happened to rain rather badly, seeking shelter we made the mistake of going into a pub where the rugby semi-finals were showing. I should have known this was on as I have been working at Twickenham during the competition. My job was to seek beer to those coming to watch the match. Shifting beer throughout the matches meant I saw very little of the games. I caught the kick off of the opening match and snatches of the action in between. I also happened to be present the day England lost out on the chance of progression. The travelling back afterwards was interesting and meant an overnight detour to Oxford was taken at one point. I have never been so thankful for a 24 hour coach service.
I have also been lapse in updating my photo blog, however I am trying to rectify this with a few more posts in the next few weeks, whilst going back on the job hunt. Feeling a bit more positive now that I have actual employment experience and a bit of money for both that festive time of year and my upcoming adventure to Germany.
