August, where have you gone?

So here I am back in N Ireland living every day life as it should be lived.  :)  Once the novelty of being home wore off, and the repetitive questions on India had stopped, it appeared that not a lot had actually changed here; thank God!

The comforts of being home really are fantastic, even if you are broke and seem to appear that way until the student loan comes in.  Despite this though, no money doesn't mean no fun!
I've been on the ball trying to get as many hours as possible at work, which hasn't been a lot to be honest, despite this I had a fantastic time working at Tenants Vital, for those of you who don't know what this is, it's a large music festival in Bangor.  I had a crackin' time over the 2 days! In brief: the first day I got to meet 'The Script' and 'Ellie Goulding' back stage, and then on an even better second day I got thumped by a rather butch looking chavette!  I suppose I've got to take the good with the bad! haha 

Some other details:
- Rachel's parents and my own parents finally met...I'll quickly move on from this one, but lets just say we're still together and the night wasn't as bad as I personally dreaded!

- I've completely moved into my new house and love it! With a lack of TV I have become partly addicted to Mario Kart Wii; don't criticize, it's just too much fun! 

-I have reclaimed back the fish, and instead of waiting for them to die, I'm actually going to look after them this year and ensure they flourish! (Into slightly fatter, healthy fish).

-This weekend past Rachel and I had a fantastic time at a friend of our's wedding.  It had a bit of a vintage theme to it with the good old VW Camper fan, the old red double decker buses, and of course the sentimental family wedding dress.  All of this I'm told by Rachel as the most important thing for me was the food - both the flavour and the portion sizes!

In finishing I suppose I'll tie it back into India one last time with this: Rachel and I have enrolled for the TEFL 120 hour class...although it may not be as fun as we imagined...it's one more step to travelling again and perhaps even getting paid this time! Whoop Whoop!
