2 months today until my official first day of Vet School! I can't believe that I'm actually coming to the end of this long wait and getting closer to packing up my life and shipping it to London. Despite being absolutely ecstatic about the fact I've finally made it to this point without (too many)… Continue reading The waiting game
One minute you're chucking back the wine at dinner and the next you're shoulder deep in cow in the middle of a thunder storm... On Saturday I took advantage of a rare free evening to catch up with my boyfriend over dinner. We had just about finished eating when my grandmother called in a panic… Continue reading Storm
I am absolutely over the moon to have received an unconditional offer from my first choice!
