Ummm hi again?

So I haven't posted anything here for a really really long time. I don't really have a good reason for that either, well I have a good reason for not posting this week, but last week I have no excuse for. I actually has to go and read the post to find out what I had said. So, sorry.

Week before last continued to be very cold, so I experienced my first 5.55 train to Ely as the Cam was frozen! It wasn't so bad but I am very glad that I don't have to do it all the time yet. Other than that the most notable thing that happened last week was the Cam freezing solid and causing Fairbairns, the big end of term race to be cancelled. It was the end of term for all the undergrads, and we had our traditional celebration for Megan's birthday with mulled wine and mince pies.

This week has been a bit more eventful- well one big event- I came down with gastroenteritis overnight on Tuesday. Luckily for me, I was with David so he has been looking after me and I spent 4 days in bed not eating and generally feeling sorry for myself. In fact today has been the first day I have eaten three normal sized meals. I have lost a lot of weight over the week- not the way to go about making weight as a lightweight though! All of this means I missed out on CUWBC sparring with the Alumni on the Thames this weekend, which I had been really excited to go and do. I'm not sure why I was quite so excited about it but I was pretty gutted not to be having a weekend out with everyone and doing some racing.

Thankfully I'm feeling a bit better today so once I have completed my enforced 48hr quarantine tomorrow this week will be back to normal and I'll have something to write about.

In the meantime here is my christmas list again: http://www.makealist.co.uk/wishlist/748117601/1370590952
