I am the sea
23rd July 2013
I flew home from my holiday in Portugal on Friday. I had a fantastic time with Tyrone. It was our first holiday abroad together and it has made me more excited for travelling adventures together in the future.
It was a pretty lazy holiday. I showed Tyrone around the town where we stay and that was about it for exploring. It’s a bit too hot in the summer to do anything there except relaxing on the beach. One day we decided to go on a boat trip around the coast line.
I knew how beautiful it was and I knew it would be the perfect opportunity for Ty to take some amazing pictures. We went with a local fisherman on his little boat. It was a little bit more expensive than going with the big companies that operate in the marina but it was worth it because we were the only ones on the boat, rather than having to share it with 10 other people. It was very romantic!
We also visited Cape St. Vincent which is suppose to be the most south westerly point in Europe. I’ve been before to watch the sun set and it was incredible. I wanted to show Tyrone but unfortunately that night it was cloudy which kind of ruined it. Still, we managed to take a few photos. Ty got some great ones of me that I will have to steal from him. 😛 (Note: our hair looks messy because it is incredibly windy at the end of Europe!)
Just like missing the sun set at Cape St. Vincent, a few things didn’t go to plan on holiday. I got terribly sun burnt on the back of one of my legs. Just the one. I couldn’t walk for a day and now the skin is peeling everywhere. It looks stupid! I also sat on my Kindle and snapped the screen. I didn’t even put much weight on it. I ended up ordering a new one when I got home on Friday and it arrived yesterday. This one feels pretty cheap but looks nicer than my old one. Let’s just hope I don’t sit on this one!
So what am I up to these days? Well, I quit my job so I’m now enjoying having some time to myself. As soon as I’d finished uni I was working so it never felt like I had a break. I’m loving this freedom.
I’ve actually been quite busy. The week before I went to Portugal I was out with my friends and family everyday. I met up with my friend Leander a few times. We went out for lunch and we went record shopping. I managed to get Quadrophenia for £1.99. The vinyl is in good condition but the folder is pretty tatty, but for less than £2 I can’t complain. I also went strawberry picking with my friend Becky. So much for getting bored once I finished my job.
I’ve been busy sorting out my bedroom too. I wanted to get rid of some of the pointless rubbish that has been cluttering my bedroom ready for when I move out. I don’t want to take a load of junk with me to Liverpool. I’ve only cleared out under my bed and already I have accumulated 5 bin bags full of rubbish! I honestly don’t know where it all came from!
On top of all this, Ty and I are making regular trips to Liverpool to go flat hunting. It’s a tedious process. I just want to find somewhere so badly. Uglyfish is also flat hunting in Liverpool and I feel her pain. I never thought it would be this difficult!
Congrats to Tyrone who received his unconditional offer to LJMU which makes him an official student! Whey! No more waiting around to find out if he has got in, even though with his grades they’d be stupid not to except him. I’m getting all excited for September now. 😀
