My beach substitute

One of my favourite things about summer is visiting the beach. Unfortunately, the beaches that are closest to me are about a four hour car trip away. As a result, this summer I have been spending quite a few days at what the people in my town affectionately call "the weir" (even though it's actually a lake formed by a weir). My time there is usually spent chatting with friends, swimming, reading and eating ice-cream that begins to melt as soon as you step out of the shop. Yesterday I even managed to drag mum with me and she sat in the shade and knitted - she's the cutest person ever.

Next year, however, I will be able to head to the beach whenever I want! I found out a few days ago that I've been accepted into my dream journalism course and dream university, which means I will be moving to Sydney :). I've deferred starting my course for twelve months so I can work and save, but I'm already itching to get to uni. I also can't wait to meet new people and explore the city properly! 


  1. Congrats on getting into your dream Uni! That is really exciting. Taking some time off to work is probably a good idea. I am going to school and working and at time it can be too much. I am also so jealous of all your warm weather pictures.


  2. ohhh my gosh, congratulations!! it's always SO exciting when dreams start coming true :D and i'm so jealous that it's all warm and sunny and ice cream filled where you are right now. i'm bundled up under coats and ski masks haha. and your mom is a-dorable, knitting in the shade haha
