Death on the Nile.

After recovering from the start of my week, in which I contracted a heavy dose of Fresher's Flu (before I started!) I have been having an amazing time, and really love London; the atmosphere, the people, the shopping... going for walks by the river in the middle of the night, with my housemates who are truly incredible. And it feels like I haven't stopped laughing or smiling since I got here. I'm so in love with life right now.
The freshers ball was on Saturday night, and as far as I can remember it was amazing. It was themed dress as Death on the Nile, so we went for a heady 1920's vibe... I wore a beaded shift dress. Unfortunately my hair is the least 20's thing you ever will see, but it is the stubbornest barnet on the planet so it was a problem not to be solved.
I have, of course, been shopping on Oxford Street, as I just really... needed... to. I got a dress, which I love and am pretty sure Sally will be stealing if she can get her hands on it, the main feature being a zip, and a lovely silk floral skirt, both from H&M. My house is lovely too... we've really made it a home, although I do miss my old room.
Sorry about the awful photo of me!
This was short and sweet, but now I'm going to go and sit in a lecture for which I haven't done the prep work, so adieu.
