The past few days have been quite eventful. As the days of uni draw to an end, we have been busy making the most of the days we have left! On Tuesday was our university's yearly festival called The Vale Festival (held in an open park area on campus known as the vale) It's the biggest student lead festival in the country and all the proceeds go to charity. It was a fantastic day where I spent most of it buying strawberries, brownies and sitting in tents listening to some great music. Events like these, make me proud to have been part of such a great university. My friends and I all made wishes on the wishing tree and watched fire spinners spin magical patterns through the night!
I also took my friend to Stratford Upon Avon for the day as she has always wanted to go. It's not far from Birmingham and it really is a lovely town, very touristy but it is the home of Shakespeare after all. The photo on the right is Shakespeare's birthplace. For those of you who have never been to Stratford before, it's everything you expect it to be. Chocolate Boxy and very pretty!
We couldn't resist posing with our very hilarious 'GingerBARD' cookie outside the very house. Tourist gifts are funny. Unfortunately the icing nearly chipped my tooth and I resorted to nibbling the gingerbread instead.
We also stopped outside the Teddy Bear Shop where I was rather taken by the giant Tudor dressed bear which was stood outside. Haha, Can you tell? I look quite happy! Hope you enjoy the photos that I've shared! Things planned for the next two days...shopping and karaoke. By Saturday most of my house mates are off home for good and I will be packing up my little pink bedroom...onwards and upwards!
