It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Okay, so this blog post title may sound a little dramatic, but being slap bang in the middle of revision it feels like it was appropriate. With this lovely and somewhat unexpected turn of the weather being hotter than Ibiza this weekend, revision seems to be the last thing on everyone's mind.

Trying to combine this revision with the weather proved eventful on Thursday when me, Elliott, Fern, Matt and Romily packed up a picnic and headed to Virginia Water to basically roast ourselves in the sun and pretend to do some revision all day. The ice-cream van was a definite highlight too.

What you can't see from this picture is the lobster-like sunburn that obviously occurred afterwards! 

Making the most of the weather, the residents of 35 and 37 decided to try our hand at having a BBQ, which I think speaking for all of us was a bit of a disaster. Next time let the girls do it eh lads?!

Although I think the investment in a paddling pool and water balloons could have been the best purchase we've ever made. Oh and the foam swords, a great idea when living with fencers.

All in all, it was a pretty awesome few days - but coming back to the reality of the fact I still have 2 exams left is painful at best, the procrastination is real and the motivation is dwindling, but at least this weekend has proved that it is actually true that we should never grow up!

Have a good week my loves!

Lots of Love, Kate xxx
