Update & A Rather Big Surprise!

So... anyone notice anything different?

No? Me neither.

EXCEPT MY GORGEOUS NEW DESIGN BY THE WONDERFUL VICKY OVER AT BOOKS, BISCUITS AND TEA! *cradles laptop*

Can the new blog design act as a token of forgiveness? I'm so sorry for leaving you all for so long... *hides face in shame* I hate doing it but I've been really stressed lately and I think that break, though not planned, was the best thing to do. School is really taking it out of me. Even now as I write this I'm worrying about tweaking two English essays and completing four pages of math for my tutor for tomorrow.

I am planning on getting organised though, so *hopefully* I will be posting a whole lot more now! I can't promise anything though. Let me tell you, the summer holiday cannot come fast enough! *reaches out to the metaphorical green light* *can you tell what book I'm currently studying for English? ;)*

I have been missing you all SO much and will hopefully be catching up on all the blog posts I've missed later tonight! :)

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

PS: My sidebar and a couple pages are a little messy, sorry about that. Will be tidying up soon!

  2. Ooh lovely new design!! Kudos, Vicki!!

    School can be tough and time consuming, but it's kind of necessary for life, right? So even though reading (and blogging) are beyond fun (and semi-important too!), it's more important to put school first!

    I only just graduated myself almost 4 years ago, so yeah, luckily back I started blogging erratically in my final year, so it hadn't consumed me entirely, but even knowing that during my years there I still had to schedule in some "fun" reading time! But school should come first! You know us bloggers, we aren't going anywhere!


    Sorry for the long comment, not trying to sound preachy or high and mighty like, just trying to spread some love and understanding! ;)

    1. THE GREAT GATSBY! Guessing my green light reference wasn't clear? :O I did An Inspector Calls last year! Wasn't my favourite either... I usually don't like any form of writing if I'm studying it! :3 Eeek, thank you - I'm rather fond of it myself! I'm nowhere near finished! I CAN'T FIT THE DANG SCREW IN THE TWISTY THING AT THE SIDE OF THE SWINGY THING. :(
