Cruise Blues

I returned from my holiday almost three weeks ago now and it honestly feels like it never even happened. We were gone for 16 nights but it was over in a flash! This year's holiday was the best I have ever been on, hands down. We went on a Western Mediterranean cruise stopping at Malaga, Zakynthos (Zante), Corfu, Dubrovnik, VENICE AHHH, Korcula and Gibraltar. Surprisingly enough Venice was my favourite port of call. I've always wanted to go there and I wish we could have had two days there instead of just the one because there simply wasn't enough time in the day to fit everything in!

Cruises are the best holidays ever, and anyone who doubts that... you're wrong! I ate so much food I'm pretty sure I put on about half a stone in the time we were gone. I am such a pig, but it is one of the (many) joys of cruising. It was also lovely being able to spend time with my family because we're often too busy at home to spend much time together. We even managed to go without having a hideous amount of arguments. It was also my parents 25th wedding anniversary so they renewed their vows on board with the Captain along with their own private function room, a cake, photographer and an ice sculpture! It was such a lovely day.

I spent most of the time when we were sailing sunbathing, eating and reading. The past year has been so stressful it was an incredible feeling realising that I'd been sitting there for ages just watching the sea (along with the odd Turtle, Dolphin and Whale), thinking of nothing. I have now decided I belong on a cruise ship, after being on a fair few cruises (although not as many as some!) I have decided I really want to work on one. I have to wait until I'm 21 though, very upset about that.

Me with my best friend - Mr Margarita.

Are you going anywhere nice on holiday this year?

Sixth Form Prom

Iyer!! Haven't posted in ages because I have been a busy bee. I went on holiday at the end of June but I will devote a separate post to that.

Anyway, I have now officially finished sixth form and we had our prom a couple of weeks ago and it was so much fun but also so sad! Most of my friends are going off to uni and it's crazy to think that after results day in a couple of weeks I probably won't see 85% of those people ever again. Mind you, I will not lie, some I will be glad to be rid of for good!

Everyone looked beautiful and even the teachers managed to scrub up to a fairly high standard. It was a great night and luckily the English weather held out until the next day so we had sun! I am still feeling the harsh money grabbing wrath of this night though. I spent so much money and now I am stuck inside until I have more!

I'm staying at home for the next year and will be doing work experience in event organisation and I'll possibly be going to uni next year. Not sure at the moment but my boyfriend and some of my friends will still be here so not all is lost.

I hope you're all feeling swell and enjoying the so called 'summer'. (in England anyway, the weather here is terrible.) It's so depressing!!
