I went to Chester Zoo on Saturday with my Bestie. We had been wanting to go for a couple of years and finally got around to it last week. The zoo is so much fun! I hadn't been in years so I'd forgotten most of it.
As chief photographer I was in charge of taking all the photos of the animals (I took 254 photos and Bestie took 29). Here are some of the nice photos:

We had to wear full robes all day even though the weather was so hot. The colour of the hoods of our robes signifies the type of degree - in the case of our uni orange is for engineering.

Now that university is officially out of the way I can get on with thinking about work and my new flat - too exciting!
Today I ordered a sofa, armchair and a futon to be delivered to my flat in September.
I had already decided on what colour furniture I wanted so when I was in town last week I bought a cushion in John Lewis because it was nice and bright (and reduced).
Anyway this then inspired me to crochet a cushion-cover to match/complement it and got making it straight away.
I'm using the join-as-you-go method to crochet the squares together. The cushion will be 25 granny squares on one side and one big granny square on the other side.
I've also finally cast-on the first sleeve for Rob's jumper but then the weather turned warm again so I've not got much of that done.
The friendship blanket I'm constructing from squares swapped with other crafters on Ravelry is making progress though:
It is looking good so far and I'm meeting lots of new people by taking part in the swap
