One exam down...

And only one to go - I think I might just prefer this "one exam lots of stuff" approach to the numerous undergraduate exams with slightly less content.

Is interesting but more so I think if I didn't feel I was rushing through things (or not but I should be).

Coursework Woes

Handed a paper copy of my coursework in today around five minutes late which should be OK but I forgot to submit it electronically before I did so I missed the deadline for that and the folder was locked. I hate electronic sumission - I always forget to do it.

Flapjacks, Attempt 3

I asked Chriss for her recipe a while back but haven't had it so in the meantime I thought I'd trawl the internet for something that might taste roughly similar (i.e. something with treacle). Here's the one I found and tried today:


Makes ~6/8, ~30 minutes.

170g/6oz oats
115g/4oz margarine
115g/4oz caster sugar
2dsp black treacle
1dsp plain flour

Grease and lightly flour a baking tray, preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Melt together the margarine and treacle over a low heat before adding dry ingredients. Mix well before turning off heat and pressing into baking tray. Bake ~20 minutes and cut into slices whilst still warm. Remove from tray once cooled.

Petition For a Guiders Hoodie

I've just added my signiture to a petition for a Guiders hoodie. I'd love a Guiders hoodie (as long as the sleeves didn't shrink in the wash like all my other Guiding uniform jumpers). The petition is here.

Been sorting out paperwork for the London trip tomorrow. Went through all the forms getting very confused when they didn't seem to match up to the right people - think it's all there now though. I've packed my bag and so I think it might be bedtime.

Cycling Adventure!

Today Hobnob and I cycled to Wickes and ASDA. It was slightly better than our last cycling adventure and I got to buy some exciting fruit and cake! Not done much else today really, tried to think about my OS coursework but it's all a bit hard.

That Tamagotchi Application - Submitted!

Finished the report for my mobile coursework just before 01:00 this morning. Couldn't quite get it down to four pages and still fit in all the things I wanted to but there's not very much text on the final page - just an image and the references. Went onto campus this morning with my preprinted copy and handed it in - hurrah!

After that I wandered to Hobnob's office and attempted to print the stuff for my mobile computing reading list. I didn't finish it all (not by any means) but at least I've made a start - perhaps I can start reading them and doing my revision too??

Lots of Post!

Today I've collected lots of post - yay!

I have:
A letter from Lada, my Russian penpal.
A booklet from Scripture Union about Spring Harvest.
Things That Make Us Smart mooched from Vivir (Finland)
And something else I've already forgotten!

Woo, post!

9 Cannibals

How many cannibals could your body feed?

Yes really - though it doesn't say how many meals they get each. What about dessert?

Book Shopping

Went round Lancaster with Dave today. Was very good to see him but I got a bit excited with my book shopping again. Started out in the charity shops where I picked up three Christian books in Banardos: Jesus Freaks, Cover to Cover and Cover to Cover 2: God's People and then one more in Oxfam: Counting Sheep. Moved on to Waterstones and spotted Son of a Witch which got me all excited. It was on 3 for 2 but as I very quickly afterwards found The Children of Hurin (in paperback, that's one off the list!) also included in the offer this wasn't too much of a hardship :). My last book from the 3 for 2 was The Painter of Shanghai and then I also bought The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog.

I think I need to find some more reading time!
