Cross continental coffee

Sitting on skype on a sunny afternoon with an iced coffee, a flapjack and a virtual boyfriend… pixel perfection.

Sunny skype date


Catching up with yourself

It has been almost two months since I last updated Lovely Things. The last post, a brief review of a new writing showcase that I organised back in March to get feedback on some of my work, really marked the beginning of the end of my three years here at Bath Spa University but a few things have happened since then…

Over Easter I went to the lake district to research my final thesis production of Swallows and Amazons… whole host of loveliness to be seen there.P1050632

I begun workshopping the production with the cast. (See how it happened here DIGITAL CAMERA

I spent 3 weeks wandering around tea shops and seaside towns with my beautiful American.The Olive Tree

Then a week ago the lights went down on the set of Swallows and Amazons for the final time and my degree was over.968847_10151414468801606_1475282436_n

I am now in that odd sort of limbo land between finishing my degree and actually graduating, where real life is conveniently on hold while grades are finalised, gowns are ordered and I spend what I have left of my student loan on catching up with friends over coffee and cocktails before we disappear off for the final student Summer.

In some ways I’ll miss being a student. I’ll definitely miss Bath and the life I have here but there are lots of new things to come; different things, scary things, exciting things, and of course, as always… Lovely Things.
