I’m a Blogger Get Me Outta Here…

We’re surrounded by bugs. No not the the sickness kind (for once can you believe haven’t gotten ill this whole holiday *touches all the wood* not that kind of wood you filthy beggars). CREEPY CRAWLIES. Now when you consider the occupational hazards of working in the South or France I bet you wouldn’t think twiceContinue reading “I’m a Blogger Get Me Outta Here…”

Tour de France…

On our Tuesday off we decided we would make like the French and go for a bike ride through the sunflower fields. We’d have the wind in our hair and and a baguette in our baskets. A soundtrack of French music would be playing softly in the background. French boys would wave from their balconiesContinue reading “Tour de France…”

Voyage-ing…

Since we arrived in the land of sunshine and cigarettes we (we being me and Rachel, my parter in crime for the duration of this working holiday) have been on a couple of trips into civilisation. First came Cognac for the Blues Festival. Well I say Blues Festival. We didn’t actually have tickets. Instead ofContinue reading “Voyage-ing…”

Oops I did it again…

A week ago I (very literally) crash landed into La Rochelle airport (thanks Ryanair) to begin my working holiday in the South of France. Yes, I really did do it again. Whoops. #I’mABloggerGetMeOutOfHere. The baby poo and sleepless nights of Spain apparently just weren’t enough to deter this…err…serial…working-holiday-ist? from another summer in the sun. YesContinue reading “Oops I did it again…”

They see me tempin’ they hatin’…

I’ve been up all night, tryna get that rich I’ve been work, work, work, work working on my shit. So, as it turns out, not only was I able to secure a little part time job at uni, but I’ve also been offered a Christmas temp position back at home (say what?). Such fun! (Not)Continue reading “They see me tempin’ they hatin’…”

I’m bored, I’m the chairman of the bored…

I had the most boring lecture in the history of all lectures today. The professor kept jumping from topic to topic and relapsing into her native language…DO I LOOK BILINGUAL TO YOU? Oh why thank you. (I’m not) Does this face look bovvered about whether the Treason Act of 1351 which forbid imagining the deathContinue reading “I’m bored, I’m the chairman of the bored…”

How To: Procrastinate

It turns out that the year above us said that they’d like more assessment in their yearly review… …bastards. Guess who already has a essay that counts towards their yearly grade? Guess who has to submit that essay by 10am tomorrow morning? Guess who’s writing this post to avoid finishing said essay? I’ll give youContinue reading “How To: Procrastinate”

Cohabitation…

So to (sort of) round off all of my Spain posts (now I’ve said this there will probably be ten more for me to write in the future), here is perhaps the most important of them all… To summarise: living with strangers sucks. Now if you have a job, just take 30 seconds to imagineContinue reading “Cohabitation…”

Unpacked and over ‘ere…

And so finally my homecoming post arrives. It’s only two (okay three) weeks late…did I mention I was a horrific procrastinator? You might have read my blog post “Dropping Dollar Bill$” when I talked about booking my ticket home, well I actually arrived back in the UK on the 9th of August. A little partContinue reading “Unpacked and over ‘ere…”

Walk the walk…

As a companion to my “Talk the talk..” post, I thought I’d give you some handy tips about what you should ask the people you’re going to be staying with pre-departure. I obviously failed miserably at this, I was met at the airport to find the family had a third sonĀ I had completely no ideaContinue reading “Walk the walk…”
