Home stretch



Heeeeeeeeeeeeeey lovers! Guess who managed to get her passport replaced just in time to go on holiday? This chick right here. And I didn't even need to cry! Though I did tell the passport officer about my horrible, horrible exam on Monday, so maybe she felt a little bad for me. I dragged my weary [read: hungover] body from Glasgow to Edinburgh, absolutely soaked from the pouring rain, but with a massive grin on my face.

I'm going on holiday tomorrow! Tomorrow! To a place where I don't have to do anything but lounge about and read books and eat Turkish delight and drink Turkish coffee. Hint: it's Turkey. I absolutely cannot wait. All I have to do now is tidy the flat, take the bins out, wash all the dishes, iron all my clothes, buy some more sandals......well. Nearly there.

So this is a little 'goodbye for a week' post. Goodbye stressed, pale, tired Emily - hello slightly less pale, blissed out Emily. Adieu!
