Ok, so it's more like a month in photos.... but finally a new 'weekly' post! There's so much to talk about since I last posted that I don't really know where to start. We've completely settled into the house now :) It now feels really weird going back to Mum and Dad's house now because it doesn't feel like home anymore. I think it's because there's not all of my stuff clogging up all the rooms now! Two more houses have moved in on the street now but I can't wait until everyone is in so there's a bit more going on in the street. I've turned into a really bad people watcher though because our living room is upstairs and looks out over the whole street. The worst bit is that I seem to forget that they can see me too :') No one wants to see my in my pjs at 3 in the afternoon!

It's been a busy few weeks, so I've just done a brief description of the pictures because I'd be writing for days otherwise. I've had a good few weeks though. I went to Jeni's 21st in Conwy Golf Club, had some friends round for the last day of the Six Nations (you could say it was a house warming, but it was mainly in the afternoon and there was only a couple of us so we weren't partying all night!), like every other person in Britain we jumped on the BBQ bandwagon when we had that super hot week in March (which has sadly gone back to normal cold and rainy Wales now), I've been really busy in work re-merchandising the shop, finished my dissertation and last weekend had my cousins and little godson to stay! This weekend we've got some more guests because Nat and Phil are staying and we're going to Carlo's Italian restaurant on Saturday <3

Hope everyone has had a good month :)

Hi! I'm surprised I managed to remember my login details for Blogger, haven't posted in ages. Everything has been crazy with uni recently though and finally getting on track with the workload thats left. So its going to be a stressful few weeks until final hand ins on May 24th but at least I know what needs doing now! Plus I handed in my dissertation last week so at least another module is completed!

So I decided to get a new domain name and design for my blog. When I started the blog, it was a continuation of my design portfolio website, but I put a mixture of things on here now so it needed a new, more personal name. It took me forever to choose one but I finally went with EMSYPIE. It may sound odd, but a few people call me Emsy and my best friend is the only one who calls me Emsypie... so I went with that! I wanted something short so it works and I'm really happy with it :) It's also my blog's first birthday next month so its had an early present of a spruce up!

I'm hoping to start blogging a lot more now, I've really missed it over the last month. And Aled's probably been sick of me rambling on to him instead of on here! Haha. Not sure how many posts I'll manage while I finish off my uni work but definitely after I finish.
