So long February... Hello March!

Is it just me or has the last month been the quickest month ever?!

I realise it was only 28 days but still... 

The last few weeks have been just as busy as ever, with uni work, catching up with friends, hitting the gym and of course, shopping.

I've been out for a couple of meals, treated myself to a few new bits and spent more money than I should have - same old same old.

After a visit from one of my good friends back home last weekend, I am looking forward to my best friend coming to visit today - which will of course involve more coffee, food and shopping. My favourite :-)

I am looking forward to the spring and slightly warmer weather. Replacing the woolly jumpers for lighter clothing is a definite plus.

How was your February? Do you have anything exciting planned this month?
