McBusted Concert

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

So as a treat I went to the McBusted concert last night at the metro radio arena in Newcastle – and it was absolutely brilliant. They put on a fantastic show & I felt like I relived my childhood listening to all songs from McFly and Busted. What a great night & a lovely treat from revision. But now it’s back to the hard work from today onwards… no stopping until exams are over! My first written paper is in 8 days so I’ve not long to go!!!

My Easter Weekend

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend – it was gorgeous weather and a perfect excuse to have a bit of a revision break and enjoy the sunshine and spend time with my family and friends! Pharmacy is very difficult and I’ve been studying ridiculously hard recently for the exams that are coming up VERY soon, so the long weekend was lovely for a relax and recuperation before continuing to work hard!
