Day 6!

Wow, I can't believe it's day 6 already! We found out exactly a week ago tomorrow that OH had got the job. It's flown past!!

I still haven't got much done, really. I've enquired about a few flats, and found some gorgeous ones but they were so expensive! Around 4,000 euros a month, which is far too much. OH enquired about shared rooms, as there are some really nice ones around over there, and I was recommended an apart-hotel but I haven't managed to find out about pricing yet. It's listed on a lot of holiday sites but you can't book it for longer then a month online, and its own website is in Spanish and doesn't translate at all. I've sent off a few emails to enquire.

I've had some excellent news today, which if everything goes well for me, means on the 12th April I will be able to start a BPS accredited psychology degree. I've always loved the idea of being a counsellor, and a late night conversation with a woman from the "£100 to 10k" thread made me look into it a bit deeper. Because of my disabilities, Student Finance will fund it even if I am out of the country, so as long as I get accepted (and fast!) I'll be well on the road! It's a three year degree, with two residential 'trips'. I've sent off an application form and will apparently be contacted within 24 hours, so lets see what tomorrow brings!

I had a look at Summer clothing earlier, but couldn't find anything I like...I love shorts, but OH doesn't, and I haven't ever worn a skirt I've felt suited me. I bought a nice dress last week in an online sale, and I love how it fits, but being black I might be too hot too wear it. Being pale doesn't help, as I'll burn easily, and so need to have my shoulders covered really. Shopping is hard work!

Watched Arsenal beat Liverpool today (YAY!) and then Sevilla play, but I felt ill throughout. Have only managed to eat a slice of bread, and it took me until 9am to get to sleep last night, when the cleaner decided to let herself in to show future tenants around. The place was a bit of a mess, and I was in bed...It's a studio, so the door opens next to the bed. There is a big thick curtain, but she had pulled that out of the way...Not the nicest way to wake up!

Anyway, I'm off to lie down. I'll leave you with this picture of Sevilla airport!
