Skipped the gym this morning as felt so tired from my late night watching the Women’s Euro football.

Today I experienced a graduation for the first time from an academic point of view rather than as a graduating student (although I’ve only done this once anyway) & I did find it quite emotional if I’m honest, as I ordered robes it meant that I was part of the formal procession and sat on a platform during the service. As I live in a Cathedral city, our students get to graduate in the Cathedral & what a magnificent building to celebrate in.

This was my view from the platform! Felt a little bad for taking a picture but wanted to catch the day in some way shape or form.

I found it all a little emotional & overwhelming as I still have to pinch myself that I’m a university lecturer & get to be part of these events.

I was supposed to swim this evening too but felt pretty ropey from being dehydrated & lack of sleep, my head was also pounding, came straight home & sat in a darkened room for a bit until the ibuprofen kicked in.

Just a couple more days at the uni & then I’ve got two weeks of annual leave which will be nice – the main thing I’m actually looking forward to is being away & not being woken up at 4am by Sophiecat, I love her dearly but this is now taking a toll on me & my ability to function properly during the day.

I'm 40 something gal living in the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, England. I run my own business which is a rollercoaster of good times and bad times but it is what makes life interesting. I'm a self-confessed foodie, which some people might think is bordering an obsession, but a good obsession I would say. I am a fully qualified food technologist, nutritionist and personal trainer and use my skills and knowledge to keep striving to better myself in all areas of my life. Despite being dyslexic I love reading both fiction and non-fiction books and usually have four or five on the go at any one time. I enjoy keeping myself fit and healthy by regular visits to the gym as well as enjoying open water swimming and sometimes I'm brave enough to swim without a wetsuit. This blog is all about my life and adventures.
