No place like home.


Question:How many bags does it take for a student to pack so that can go home after Christmas?

Answer: Apparently, a hell of a lot! (Enough to fill the boot and back seat of my ka....)

I am one who is known for my hate extreme dislike of packing, regardless of whether I am going somewhere that I want... (Unless the weathers like it is now, and someone want to pay for me to go to a tropical island?) and so the idea of once again packing everything up again for this term at university kind of filled me with dread. To the left is everything that I figure I may need for when I'm not at home. (The worse part is I go commute home every weekend for work so it's not even like I'm properly moving out - sorry Mum & Dad, you're stuck with me!)


I may well have not enjoyed packing but it was amazing to be reunited with my flatmates (including face timing the only one who hadn't made it back tonight). We're like one big family; complete with laughing, winding each other up and the occasional cursing. Most of us haven't seen each other in weeks but we all fall back into our routines and find that we pick up where we left off.

There's no place like my university-home.

  3. Packing is hideous. I never lived in Uni accommodation and had my own flat so I never needed to pack down but now we have to pack for ourselves and our daughter... Tedious!

  7. Eee you've just reminded me of that first year at uni when we had to EMPTY our room in halls each holiday and take it home for two weeks - what a ball ache that was! Was much easier once we moved into a house!
