Destination Love: Egypt

I would love to go to Egypt mainly for the ancient history; I absolutely loved learning about the Egyptians in primary school! The one thing that puts me off: the heat. I don't think I'll be able to bear it :( Anyway, I think it's amazing how some of these 'ancient wonders' have lasted so many centuries:
The Pyraminds of Giza

The Sphinx


Egyptian Museum in Cairo

Abu Simbel

Luxor Temple

Taking a felucca on the Nile

A Camel Ride
Temples of Karnak

Valley of the Kings

What? Me? Actually driving a car?

A selection if students from my sixth form were chosen to get a free mini driving lesson today as we always turn up to lessons, have great attendance, good effort blahdy blah you get what I mean. There was ten of us all together and there was two students per instructor and car. It was really weird and it wasn't a proper, proper lesson as it was only on a basketball court 'cos you need a provisional license to drive when you're off the road and you need to be 17 over here. It was actually really good! I didn't crash or stall! Hooray me!! :)

It's funny actually as my mam has booked a two hour lesson on my birthday next month and booked some more hours for me with a different company and then I just need to fit them around me. I'm really pleased I've got a bit of practise in so I don't look like a total failure for the first time with my new instructor. See kids should take note, there are perks if you attend school and do all your work! hehe :D

Is It Acceptable?

Okay so guys, is it acceptable to start listening to Christmas songs yet? It might seem like a silly question but I don't want to start to early right? The reason I ask is because I wrapped up my first lot of xmas presents for friends and family and whilst my iPod was on shuffle Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas came on. Instead of skipping Christmas songs which I've done all year I didn't! I was feeling festive and wanted a little sing song to such a well known crimbo song.

But should I allow myself to start listening to them more regularly and not skip them. Or should I just wait for December or until it least starts snowing (cos it probably will at this end of this month like last year) Are you getting ready for Christmas yet ad been present shopping yet? I was pretty ruthless the other night and got over half of the presents I was going to get. Go me!

A Two Minute Silence

There is something that I find so special about Rememberence Day. This thing is that at 11 o'clock on the 11th of November of each year the majority of the people in the UK will all be silent for up to two minutes. How amazing is that?!

Remembering the men who fought for our country and helped make the world that we live in today <3

November & A Little Update

Hi everyone, I feel like I have been neglecting this blog so much recently! I was supposed to do a post  few days ago but I completely forgot - sorry! I have so many of my favourite blogs to catch up on too! It's November, wow. Today was bloody freezing, Jack Frost was out in force this morning whilst I was waiting for the bus at 7.15 am. Things I'm looking forward to this month:

- Countdown to Christmas starts!
- Breaking Dawn Part 1 on the 18th!
- To download Florence and the Machine's new album!
- Christmas shopping starting!
- Wrapping up warm!
- Hot chocolate and films in bed!

On Thursday, my old school (before sixth form) is holding an award ceremony for our year. I think we get our certificates for our GCSE's but I'm not totally sure but also some people have been selected for specific awards for certain subjects. I'm getting one for history, which I'm proper chuffed about as that is my favourite subject and the only one I woud be bothered about getting! I'll give you an update about what happens asap.

How are you all?
