Au Revoir again …

Posted by in Cambridge 2011

Time to leave Cambridge again (for now). We’ve all had a great time. We stayed in a CityStay apartment very close to Julies digs. It was a very swanky modern apartment … I think that we’ll be using this type of accommodation...

The Exhibition

Jun 04, 11 The Exhibition

Posted by in Cambridge 2011

Today we went to the Anglian Ruskin Degree Show to see the students final year exhibits. We met up with Julie’s friend Karen who’d traveled up from London to see the exhibition. We were also joined by some of Julie’s Cambridge friends Gavin, Annie, Richard and Dee. After lunch the whole posse headed off to the University to see the exhibition.

Yes, it’s the end of her 3 year degree course when the students display their projects for the public and wider Graphic Design industry to view. In a couple of days time shell know her final result! 😀 I can’t believe that its been 3 years now since Julie left Guernsey to start her degree course. I have to say I’m very proud of my little sister. She’s worked very hard and produced some fantastic work ( have a look here and you’ll see what I mean … jooles.co.uk). She’s also settled in and made a great circle of friends. Friendships for life. Tomorrow we’re off to see the exhibition but today we’ve spent ‘feeding the fishes’ and picnicking in the rather spendid National Trust Anglesey...
