The Week That Was #1

Wowee, first week of 2015 done and dusted! I hope the year has started well for you, I can't say I've done too badly. I managed to hand in an assignment early, but I'm yet to find out if that was wise or stupid! I used to have a few different weekly posts, but somewhere along the line they've dropped off my blogging radar, and I miss it! So, if you don't mind, I'm going to bring it back in the form of this here post! 
edit, please imagine this post went live on 7th! I was extremely busy and forgot to upload! Good start to a new weekly feature if I can't even upload it on time...

So, let's have a rundown of the week, shall we? This week...

- Joe's youngest sister turned 14! We went out for a ridiculous three course lunch together and then had pie for tea! I was so happy about having pie, but also sad that I had to share it with seven other people. Anyone would think it was my birthday.

- I found out we're finally hiring someone extra on a Sunday at work. We aren't exactly busy, but it means with an extra person on the shop floor we can venture to the stock room or help out in the photo lab if needs be. We've already joined the gym today (yep, one of those people) and I'm sure we'll be best buds.

- Dylan found my box of Lush goodies! The little guy enjoyed a purple bath of Northern Lights and whatever else he managed to get his hands on... You can see it on instagram here, the cheeky swine!

- I went back to uni. I really can't believe how quickly my break has ended. I've got two assignments due next week, so I've got to get cracking! I did manage to pull 900 words out of the bag, but gotta keep going. Speaking of which...

- I made a chocolate fudge cake, scones and rose tea for my "book proposal" which is one of the assignments due next week. It's on food taken from children's literature, and I still need to make ginger beer and some Turkish delight!

- I also got one of my assignment marks back, and I managed to get a solid 2:1! Yay me! My book proposal is the second assignment for the module, so I need to push myself if I want to get it up to a 1st! 

So that was my week, how have you spent the first seven days of 2015?
