I've got apologies and excuses a-plenty......

The above title is to be sung to the tune of the little mermaids hoarding song........ don't pretend like you don't know exactly what song I mean, nor that you didn't go back and try and fit the blog title to the tune. PUH-LEEEEASE nobody is buying that!

I could take this opportunity to apologise for being away, to pledge to do better oooooooooooorrr I could sweep it all under the rug and pretend that nothing is amiss, I'll give you 2 guesses as to which option I'm going with......

Ding ding ding. Those of you who selected option Number 2 are the lucky winners of the smug sense of satisfaction that comes with knowing you're right....... you're welcome!

Did I make my 175lb by feb 20th goal...... NOPE... Last Wednesdays weight in saw 179..... opps!

Well did I at least get my application altered for primary school and sent in. HA! Of course not, who do you think you're talking to....... in fact why on earth would I have broken my silence if it weren't the sweet siren call of procrastination.

Well then surely you have done your thesis corrections I hear you cry! Actually no. But mainly because I've decided not to do them...... as in ever. I came to the decision it wasn't worth it to me. I'd have to do more lab work....... and suddenly it dawned on me that this could quite possibly be never-ending, and even if it wasn't in reality it wasn't worth sacrificing my physical and mental health at its alter anymore. Personal growth!

Well what have I been doing???? You mean than finally coming to the above decision about 3 years too late??? Well I have been doing some planning for my epic bike tour. And by planning yes I do mean reading adventure biographies and cycle tour blogs. Also I have bought a bike. I pick it up tomorrow. And guys...... I won it on ebay. As in I actually had the highest bid!!!!! I NEVER win at ebay. Like ever! I may or may not be as excited by that fact as I am about the bike.

I also had an epic catch-up weekend with all my undergrad course mates. It was awesome. There was shopping (I got a new sports bra at a heavily discount price), reminiscing and foooooood, so very much food. 

Reg stole some pudding but I refrained, NSV or what!!!

Also public shout-out to the ever-awesome Desiree, for not only identifying that things had been slipping but kicking butt and actually working her ass off (literally) to reverse it. A brilliant example I definitely need to follow.

That said I have to go......... I need to complete at least 2 sections on this application tonight!
