I went to Cheltenham Racecourse on Saturday and it was so much fun! I got to meet members of the boyfriend's family whom I'd not met before and don't worry, I apparently made a good impression. The ticket that we had included two £5 betting vouchers, so although I only won £6.50, I didn't lose any money, which is something I really can't complain about.This is the horse that won my boyfriend £12. Only a couple of the jockeys fell off their horses, but luckily no one, including the horses, were seriously hurt. It was a lovely weekend break away from the stresses of university and I got to see the boyfriend again, which was wonderful!
I bought a new dress for the occasion, although I didn't wear this to the races, I wore it when I went out for a meal that evening. It's not something I'd usually go for, so I was really pleased when I found it and discovered it fitted me! Sorry for the awful changing-room-picture! It's the only one I have; I'm terrible at taking photos at the moment!
It's a lovely mint-green colour! I love it. I'll be able to wear it in the evenings and in the days when the weather picks up in the summer!
As you may know, I am a little obsessed with drinking tea. Imagine my delight when I came home to a massive box with "Teapigs" written on the side! I quickly opened it up to discover an amazing gift from my sister:
11 different sorts of tea (one of the flavours has been doubled up because it's chocolate :P ) and each tiny packet has two teabags in! I think I may have to start doing weekly tea reviews, both on here and on my YouTube channel (that I have been abandoning lately... I really need to get back on that!)
I'm off to see the boyfriend in Exeter on Friday and I'm really excited to get almost a full week with him :D I'll be working on my dissertation too so I won't be relaxing, but I'll try to keep you updated on what's going on in the week with more photo-fun!
