001. I've just gotten back from my cousins Hen weekend in Amsterdam; it was so lovely to spend some proper time with her and all her friends before the wedding in August. As we were only there for two days I didn't really get a feel for the city but we did do some really great activities such as a prossecco bike tour, nude painting and going to a sex show in the evening, which was certainly an experience. If you're planning a hen Amsterdam is definitely worth considering as there is plenty to do, and it's less than an hours flight from the UK. 
002. As a post exam treat I picked up this pancake lens for my Canon. I didn't really need it but I wanted something light and portable to take on holiday and I love it. It didn't get in my way at all, and made carrying my camera around all day so easy. The only downside is the fact that it's already quite close to what you want to photograph, I don't know how to explain it but if you want to take a picture of a group you have to stand quite far back. 
003. I'm off home for the week, but I'm not looking forward to it at all. The house feels so empty without dad around, and mum will just have me working in the shop every day. Of course I want to help out, and make her life easier, but living and working in such a small town after being in Manchester seems so dull. 
004. In a few weeks I'm off to Falmouth with L and her family, and I'm so excited as I've never been to Cornwall. I've been checking the weather recently and it hasn't been very good down there, but hopefully it improves by the time we get there. Has anyone been before? Any recommendations?
005. Most of my friends have already watched OITNB this weekend; last year we watched it all on the day it came out, but I've been away. Some of my favourite characters are Sophia, Crazy Eyes and Red, and of course I can't wait to see Ruby Rose.
