In my last post, I mentioned my friend Jack. Jack and I lived together in Halls in our first year and have stayed good friends ever since. He lives with five other people from our little 'first year friendship group', three of them being the girls that I mention fairly regularly and who you can see in the bottom picture in this post.
Anywaaay, Jack turned 21 five days after I did, so it was only right that we hit the town to celebrate his birthday in style. This gave me an ideal opportunity to get a '5st later picture' of the two of us together....
It was a fantastic night, made all the better by numerous people telling me how great I was looking - never hurts to have a little ego boost, right!? I also got the chance to have a proper catch-up with my friend James, who spent the summer in the States working as a Summer Camp Counsellor - I am beyond jealous! We also went to two places that I'd never been to before in Canterbury, meaning that #16 of my 21 Before 22 list is now well underway. The first bar we went to was called the Ballroom, and it was absolutely gorgeous. It is actually a converted ballroom and is all high ceilings and chandeliers and delicious cocktails (and you can see from the one in my hand in that photo - mmmm, Mojitos!). The second place we went to was the standard haunt for all the sports societies who want to watch the games throughout the year, hence the reason I've never been. It was a fairly grotty old pub but it had a good atmosphere and decent music and I'm never one to look a cheap Bacardi and Diet Coke in the mouth, so I went with it!
Unfortunately my camera gave up the fight last week and is now in camera heaven (don't worry, my student loan just came in so I'm planning to replace it by the end of the week) but Katie had hers so there are plenty of photos of the evening!
Katie, Me, Sophie and Em...and yes, Em really was that short - she went heel-less. Cop out.
Bigging up B'Town...we're so cool.
Yeah, not quite sure what was going on with my hair by this point...
And finally, a full length shot of yours truly...
That dress is a size 14 by the way. Yeah, thats right, size 14. GET IN.

I hope everyone is having a good week!
P.S I'm getting told off for not mentioning my housemates enough...I think they're jealous because I clearly love the girls more than them! In fairness, this is what happens when I try to have a photo taken with the four of them:
Yes, Mark is licking my face...
And I think this one says it all!
Aren't they darlings? All I can say is thank God they're pretty, otherwise I wouldn't put up with it! These photos were taken last Saturday night on my birthday night out. We were all extremely intoxicated by this point...but that is definitely no excuse!
