‘And so this is Christmas’

 

I cannot believe that term has finished and I am back in the comforts of family home living. This term has been hectic, but in a good way. My ‘Death and Devotion’ module has been beyond awesome – I have been completely inspired and wish I could just keep learning! My Tutor Emily has been very inspiring. I have always been interested in the Medieval period, and was always intending to hopefully continue my studies within this period, and this course has just confirmed it. From studying France and England, to Spain, Bohemia and Italy – I feel that I have traveled as a pilgrim so to speak throughout my reading and learning.

Even though I’ve really enjoyed the module and all the reading, it is nice to have a break and put my feet up! This holiday will see me relaxing, catching up on readings not completed and getting all my material and revision ready for my open book exam in the beginning of January (a topic I shall not discuss any further – I can feel the anxiety and nervousness at the pit of stomach brewing every time someone mentions the dreaded ‘E’ word.)

Anyway, I just wanted to wish all my readers a pleasant and festive holiday break. Have a wonderful Christmas, and I will no doubt be blogging about this and that during my time off. Here’s a wonderful Michael Buble classic to sit back, relax and listen to (just what am I doing whilst writing this!). Below are a few pictures of what I have been up to recently!
