does this blog look boring?

I'm beginning to think that this blog looks (and reads!) a bit dull. And for all that I do like the Mogwai picture it freaks me out a bit every time I look at it, so I'm going to do a new entry (and ask R how he gets his blog to look dead cool and trendy).

I went to Chatsworth today! Science K (different from Flatmate K) kindly offered to take me along in the car for a drive to Chatsworth because she wanted to get her mum a pressie from the shop (and in the end got her a pink bucket for doing the gardening - pretty cool, eh!). It was lovely! The sun was shining and we ended up walking to Baslow for a cup of tea. It was so good to be outside - I've really felt like a prisoner this week being trapped in doing assignments (am not even thinking about being in my room tomorrow too planning). It was good to have a good old natter about random things and forget the other annoying stuff.

Ooh, exciting news: I found a guitar teacher! I rang a guy up quite randomly this morning (found a list of guitar teachers in Sheffield on the web) and I'll have my first lesson in a couple of weeks! I can't wait! I just wish I could practise a bit but I don't know how to change the string that's broken and I don't want to mess it up. I also need to buy a case for it so that I don't have to carry it around in a bin liner like I have been doing (so embarrassing!) This is exciting! I just figured that waiting around to have more free time is never gonna work, unless I wait till I'm retired, so may as well get on and do something! Yay!

Surely someone you know can tell you how to change the string ... or maybe the internet?

I'm impressed that someone would go to Chatsworth to get a present. Glad you had fun.

i'm too scared to change it on my own... I have to wait till the 29th for my first lesson... I don't think I can wait that long though!!
