001: This week I made a re-appearance to Uni for the first time this year. I was umm'ing and ahh'ing for ages whether to drop out or continue and made a decision to only stay if I had passed semester 1. Well, I got a very happy e-mail this week letting me know I had passed two out of three modules and had only failed the third modules by 5%; so it can easily be improved. I'm undecided whether to stick at it enough to do year two, but I may change my mind later in the year.

002: I went to view an exhibition currently being held at the ICA showing Juergen Teller's work. He is one of my all time favourite photographers; shooting the likes of Lily Cole, Victoria Beckham and Kurt Cobain. We also went along to the Hamilton's Gallery to view Bettina Rheim's work; which focuses on gender confusion and transgenders. I am going to do a separate post on the exhibitions at some point during the week as I'm sure a lot of people are interested in popping along. It's worth seeing!

003: Finally got round to having my first ever Wagamamas, yippee! I have never eaten Japenese food before (in all honesty, I just eat Italian every time); so it was nice to have a little change and experiment with my taste buds! I asked on Twitter what I should go for and everyone said the chicken katsu dish. That's what I chose, but I went for the version with sweet potato. It was yummy, but definitely had a kick to it; so much so that I had to ask for a glass of water! Andrew went for a bowl of rice pretty much but he said he liked it and we've agreed we will return soon. The service was really weird though!

004: On Friday we got the results of Nanny Dougherty's operation. If you're a new follower or not in the loop of things; she was diagnosed with breast cancer in late November which came as a sudden shock to us all. Her operation was meant to be a week before Christmas which was then cancelled and re-scheduled for late January. She went into hospital and had the operation to remove the lump in her breast which she is still recovering from. We have then had to wait for results to find out whether all of the cancer has been removed and whether it has spread. I am SO happy to type and announce on my blog that my strong Nanny Dougherty has beaten breast cancer and it hasn't spread. It's all gone! Hopefully it stays this way. She will still have to have check ups to make sure it's not made a re-appearance but this is such a relief and weight off our shoulders. My Nanny is the rock of all the family and without her, it just wouldn't be the same. I plan on writing a post about her soon.

004: It's been a rather lazy weekend. I've caught up on e-mails, took some photographs for blog posts and started planning a fashion shoot. So far so good! Hope you're all having a fab weekend! :)

XO love, Ashleigh x

  5. Looks like you've had a lovely week. Love your midi dress! So happy about your Nan! And well done on passing Semester 1. I'm a photography student in my second year and fear I'm loosing my passion for it since I started it as a degree. Hang in there, it could just be a rut.
