I've had a long summer holiday, and Year 3 of Uni is almost upon me. But along the way there's been highlights. One of them was a trip to the Lake District for one week with family.

It took a few attempts to find a good speed but once we got going it was awesome. If only I had a video camera.
Anyway, I'm in a new home in Southampton at the moment, ready to start the first semester of year
