End of July

I'm back at Uni and I'm very excited and scared at the same time. It's great to be back but there's still problems with the course and University's trouble with budget and staff . I'm hopefully on the final leg of my sculpture degree, graduating in November- I hope...
To monitor my progress check out my new blog dedicated to sculpture, http://sculptureorhousework.blogspot.com/.
It's my sister's birthday- well it was Chrissy's 26th birthday yesterday- Happy Birthday darling sister! and my mum's 60th birthday tomorrow, Happy birthday Mum! and now I have a new Japanese sister- Arimi and she's staying with Mum and Chrissy. Now I have 2 Japanese sisters: Hitomi and Arimi, I'm very lucky.
