The gibbering idiot with midnight mash

First week of classes is over, and I think the course is going to be good! I've met some nice people and my tutors all seem nice, which is always good! I just wish I could stop talking! I'm still in scared mode so I keep talking, I must look ever so confident and friendly and things but I just feel like such an idiot! All I want to do is sit in a corner with my mouth closed, but no it takes over and I waffle! egh! I should start to relax soon, and hopefully shut the hell up! I'm sure everyone hates me, I'm so sodding annoying!!!

Met a Finnish guy too, and can I remember any of my Finnish, no! Always happens, I'm fine but as soon as I need to use it the confidence and words vanish from my mind! May be a good excuse to get the books back out though, I'm sure my standards have dropped terribly with lack use, which is a shame really as I got quite good at one point! May help my English grammar too, get the verb classes and things like that stuck in my head. Hmmm...

Went out last night too, that was weird, but nice! Cheap night at Adelphi with Stu, Ian and Sarah. I like their company I think we make a nice little group of friends. Hoping to go bowling sometime soon with them too, it's only round the corner too. Not to sure how I will cope with bowling with my crappy hands, but it will be funny if nothing else!

In random news, I burned my hand making instant mash at midnight last night! I blame the bowls, I poured the water in from the kettle and it slouched round and up the other side burning my hand, which was annoying, but at least I don't have much feeling in them ha ha!

Nicky found a recipe for panda bread today, I'm going to have to make some, not too sure how it will come out gluten free, but it's worth a go. Could be good at parties and things, could make all sorts of shapes and colors etc....hmmmm

soil and cats

I finally got some soil today!!!! The garden centre we got it from was a bit wierd though, they were just about to close the gate but let us in anyway, and we got said soil (and some pansys) then they drove out after us. They don't even close the door, just put a piece of wood across so the rabbits don't get in! Weird!
We went to a garden centre before hand but it was one of those silly ones that's expensive and sells daft things like wellies and candles. They had a cat though, he was lovely I rubbed his belly and made plans to steal him!

I start uni tomorrow and I'm starting to get scared now, I'm not worried about the course but all those people! Egh! I think I'm just going to try to get to uni a touch early each lesson, that way I can be seated and things already. I shall hide under the desks!

Been attacking the nasturtiums today, they need cutting back, I've hacked back about half of them, didn't want to get rid of them all as the bees likes them, so I will wait now until they finish flowering and start to die off. I can't believe how many seeds they have made though! I have so many in tubs drying out, and more yet outside on the soil and still on the plants, I'm going to have to give them out to people on the street! :P

I start back at uni next week, I can't wait, I'm so excited quite like a child at Christmas! I'm bit scared though, so many new people and new schedule etc, I think I shall hide in a corner and become that odd girl who never speaks and is always in the library! Bit bothered about the lighting too thanks to my crap eyes, but the optometrist at the hospital said I should get some tinted glasses from the opticians, shouldn't cost too much either as I don't need any prescription lenses. I had a bit of a look about the other day and I should be able to get some for less than £40 which is quite good, I may get some tomorrow when I go shopping with mum. It has also been recommended, by more than one doctor, that I get checked for dyslexia, as I can't focus on pages of text very well, even though I can read, I'm not thick before people start to think that of me!
