~For when I have nothing better to say or do~
Well, since this coming week is the half-term holiday conveniently placed right in the middle of my exams, my parents and I are going to spend the next seven days or so in our new house, which is a four-hour drive away, in Hampshire.
Oh, but it's kind of complicated, as the title suggests.
Y'see, we haven't technically moved in yet; my father's renting the property because he works in Hampshire all week then comes to where we live (I hesitate to say 'home' given how
So the UK came 25th in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, beating only Norway. Tragic. Appalling. But I'm not going to complain about it- and I'll probably be the only resident of the UK to think thusly, so I'd like to say I'm trying to set a good example.
