Celebration and Revision

It’s been nearly a month since my last (very brief) blog post, so I thought I’d catch up on this Bank Holiday. The last couple of weeks have been busy, with the start of my A level exams as well as leaving sixth form. I’ve been revising as much as possible which has meant I’ve been pretty busy, but I did take some time out to celebrate the last day of sixth form.

We had a fantastic gala night at school where we dressed up, watched some great performances by friends, gave out some funny awards and of course had a good night at the pub afterwards. There were some great speeches by the head girl and head boy, Alannah and Harry, as well.

Me and my friend Lydia at the Gala night, by the way I’m squinting I think I need her glasses!

It’s sad to leave behind a place that I have spent the last five years at, especially after moving to a new area and making some amazing friends for life. But I can’t wait to move onto something new this autumn and take with me all the great experiences of the last few years.

I’ve also been celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this weekend, I helped out (which involved a lot of spilling cups of orange squash) at a kid’s jubilee picnic in Tenterden and I watched some of the very long and very wet Thames River Pageant (tempted to insert a joke here about Her Maj Raining over us…)

The next few weeks will be filled with revision (maybe not exactly FILLED…) as I have four exams but I’m very much looking forward to having a great time with my close friends in the summer.  I hope you have all had a good few weeks as well 🙂

Snow Day in Tenterden

Finally, we have some snow! We had about 15 cm of snow last night in Tenterden, and here are some pictures that I took on my walk today. I took the photos using the Hipstamatic app on my iPod! Enjoy x
