Blackberry Picking in Victoria Park

Waking up to a blue sky, my family and I decided to go blackberry picking in Victoria park. Although clouds had covered the sky by the time we got out, the park, characterised by its fabulous orange fountain and plenty of wildlife, did not disappoint.

We began by the bridge and picked the fruits furthest away from the ground.  We looked in several locations and found lots of juicy berries in lots of places.Eventually, we came back near the bridge and I sat on the railings to reach the best, almost unattainable fruits. Luckily I didn't fall off!

Syria and Social Justice in Britain

Whilst the elites of the West suddenly decided that Bashar Al Assad has gone too far by using chemical weapons, (despite the fact that Britain sold them to Syria people are still  attempting and committing suicide out of fear of the bedroom tax.

The disastrous policies of austerity suck the hope out of ordinary people, as the Tory dementors who thought them up most likely intended.

I haven't done much. I haven't done enough to oppose the demons of austerity, but tomorrow I shall be protesting in Ashford town centre against the proliferation of pay day loans, financial traps traded by money predators who prey on those in need.

Let's follow the lead of Yorkshire and ban the loan shark lenders!

Hi everyone!
I know I haven't written on this blog post for a while, but after catching the twitter bug again, I thought I might make a quick post.
Basically, I have spent the last month at home, to relax and revise. I have been fairly focused but have also had nice days out with family in London and Brockhill Park.
Going back to Durham on Monday, to give myself a week to write a lit essay in German (uh oh). Then I will have my final exams. Four years have gone quickly!
If I was on facebook with you, you will have noticed that I've given it up until I finish my exams.
I hope you are all well!
