    Place off turl street by covered market. Don't know names but they have new and also second hand bikes I think and can provide tyres/repairs and stuff. Never used it myself but pass it all the time! Celebrations, a good bop shopping place, is almost next door.

    Should I buy a bike when in the first term, will there be a place to store it at holidays, rather than dragging it back and forth to Dorset 6 times a year?

    don't know...depends on your college. Lincoln has an underground locked bike shed and I'm hoping my bike will still be there when I get back <crosses fingers>

    Is there no centuries old custom that you give us BNC-ians beer and take our bikes into your sheds?

    Door stop! Thought it would be a bit more friendly to have an open door. And I'm a friendly wendy.

    my name is not actually wendy

    aussi, coasters for mugs, wooly mattress cover incase the bed isn't very comfy, flip-flops to wear in the shower.. umm I'm obviously taking lots of other things but those are (some of) the ones I nearly forgot to get. I'd better get a packin'!

    random stuff I have accumulated (mainly at the insistence of my Mum) includes:
    - extension leads
    - tea/coffee/chocolate
    - mini first aid kit
    - small sowing kit
    - shoe cleaning stuff
    - washing powder
    - high-dry thing
    - washing basket
    Even if it all fits in the car I doubt that there will be enough room in my room to keep it so it may all be making a swift return up North on Monday!

    @ LauraS

    Well I've got the extension leads, the hot drinks and the first aid stuff... And there are enough collapsable wash baskets in my room for me to steal one

    Things I forgot in my first term that you should remember:
    Hi-fi remote
    Calculator
    Cash
    Cutlery

    If you do decide to forget things, it helps to have a friend a couple of minutes away who's coming up after you
