The North

StokeI’m in Stoke-on-Trent today, having driven up yesterday to pick up my daughter and all her belongings from her University Halls. It seems like a very early end to the academic year, but her uni. had shorter Christmas and Easter holidays than many and hence is finishing earlier too. Most of Nee’s flatmates have left already or will be going today. Just one or two are staying on for a final examination next week.

We took a walk around the Student Quarter last evening – it reminds me a lot of the terraced housing in Leicester where I lived in the 1980s. I saw the house she will be living in from September; it’s right across the road from Hamley Park, and allegedly the best student house in Stoke.

We had a takeaway curry from Akash Restaurant which was the best Bangladeshi food I’ve had for years and really puts my local curry houses in North Devon to shame.

Now preparing the car for the long drive back home.

I'm sure there was less in September!

    Wow that does seem like a quick year Bridget! The school year here runs from end January to early to mid December…with the uni year starting in March, I think! Was that Nee’s first year, and how did it go for her? Pxx

      She’s loved it and came out two points short of a first.
