Been working hard. Most of the marks I've got back this year have been in the mid-to-high sixties so with any luck I should be able to get out of here with a 2:1. I've got 2 interviews next month for Midwifery courses, one in Manchester and one in London. I really hope I get into Manchester for various reasons - it's home, accommodation is cheaper (I'm not living with my parents!!!), and I'll be marginally closer to the Geordie. I'll have friends in either city so it doesn't really matter, but I think Dave and I really want to make a go of it next year, and the further away I am the less likely it is to work out. Especially seeing as he has an irrational hate for London already, having never been there in his life. Strange boy.
It's all pretty scary imagining myself as a trainee midwife. Think of all the muff I'll have to look up day in day out! I'm also fairly squeamish which I assume I'll have to sort out before getting my hands dirty. I'd rather not make passing out embarrassingly a daily occurrence.
Valentine's Day was uneventful seeing as neither of us go in for it particularly. We got each other cards, I saw him for about an hour in Gosforth for a coffee (which he bought! oh, the romance!) and he sent me a picture gift of a bog roll on Facebook. Now THAT is amore.
Sarah and Scott are moving in together in July which is lovely news. The initial fright at the thought of them having only been together half the amount of time Dave and I have has subsided. It's a big step but if they feel they're ready for it, good luck to them! It seems strange though, because I hadn't even considered anything like it. I'm absolutely 100% categorically not ready for anything like that. I'm still too selfish and attached to my independence and I'm pretty sure Dave feels the same. The fact that a lot of my friends seem to be settling down does make me feel a tad old, though...
So that's about it for now and possibly for the next year or so if my recent posts have been anything to go by.
I do still read everyone's journals regularly, though, and even comment occasionally (gasp!) so don't think I've forgotten you all!!!
