Valentine's Day And A Parcel From Home

I've had a ridiculously busy week, so I haven't had time for fun! (or blogging) > . < Sadly next week my project starts officially, so I'll have even less time! *sadface* But I will try and make time for more posts, because all work and no play makes Sunny a dull girl :P

However yesterday was Valentine's Day, love it or loathe it :P I had lectures all day (and planning the start of my project - _ -). So me and my boyfriend decided to have a lazy (and not too expensive) relaxing evening in, eating Chinese (bean curd and black bean sauce = YUM), watching The Karate Kid and playing Tomb Raider III (don't laugh, but I died on the beginning slope 5 times XD). Because we've just had Christmas, and because Valentine's Day isn't really about spending loads of money we kept our gifts simple, my boyfriend gave me some beautiful red roses and some truffles (yummy ^ - ^) and I gave him a mug which looks like a camera lens (maybe one day if I could ever afford the £450 lens he's been pining over I can give him a real one :P).



Also, rather excitingly my mum sent me a parcel and it arrived yesterday. When my mum was little she went to boarding school and her parents sent her parcels, I've never been to boarding school, but now I'm away at uni my mum finds it fun to send me little treats in the post :P



My mum phoned me last week asking if I needed anything, so I replied cotton wool pads, hair grips and pens (I normally lose my pens in lectures somehow...by getting bored and pen jousting people :P). I also got fooooood, ask any uni student what the most important thing they spend money on is and they will all reply alcohol, but second is food :P. I am OBSESSED with gnocchi (it just tastes soooo good) and feta cheese is so incredible, but I never let myself buy these things because I only go for the cheapest of the cheap (so long as it's healthy too), so I cannot wait to eat these treats! I got a little chocolate cow and a HUGE pile of granola bars, my mum knows I'm too lazy to get out of bed and all the way into the kitchen when I have an early lecture, so it's easier to nibble one of these as I dash down to a 9am lecture (or 12pm depending on how late I got to bed :P). For little random things I got a pretty flower hair slide (I've recently become more and more obsessed with hair decorations), a Neutrogena handcream (for when my GORGEOUSLY FANTASTIC AND WONDERFUL L'Occitane handcream runs out and I can't afford a new one) and a Natural Collection concealer in Fair. I really like concealers, so I look forward to seeing if this one is any good :)

Now I could be a good girl and finish my essay on predation in the abyss, or I could be a bad girl and play more Tomb Raider...I wonder which one I'll choose.... :P
