    It's horrible mate, half of my best clothes ended up folded in a big deep draw or in a suitcase under my bed You need all the clothes aswell, unless you want to be at the laundrette all the time..
    It's probably worse when you have a complete inability to operate a washing machine!!! :eek: I get the feeling I could be one of the few student with a dry-cleaning bill. :rolleyes:

    I'm taking the best parts of my fine shoe collection. Slightly off topic, I really, really, really want some cowboy boots. I saw Faith had some but they're not superbly nice. My favourites (just because I like to talk about shoes) are my yellow gingham high heels with bananas on, my flat black pointy ones with kittens and puppies on, and my green flat ones with little pink flowers on and a buckle at the front like little girl shoes.

    I can't wait to pack. I've got a wardrobe full of clothes I don't really wear too often, but can't bear to part with some of them. I also have mounds of clothes I love so much its almost romantic, but I don't know if they will all fit. I'm also planning some university shopping before I go.

    Also I have a query about blenders. Is it worth paying £35 for a smoothie maker, which is basically a blender with a little tap on the front that you can dispense your drink directly from? I am quite fond of kitchen utensils, and am tempted to get that rather than a much more economical hand held blender.

    (btw frozen watermelon + white rum + sugar syrup = fantastic drinky from blender/smoothie maker)
    On that note..... 2 Scoops of low-fat vanilla ice-cream, banana chunks, <whatever spirit you fancy>!!! Aids my drinking ability before a night out (no idea why though :confused: )!!!

    I've been thinking about whether I should join any societies if not. I'm undecided as I don't know if I could be bothered if I did join one.

    all my friends at uni this year said the societies have been really fun!

    Also looks good to potential employers....

    which uni are you going to?

    I'm off to Lancaster. I have been looking though and strangely enough the hiking one could be a good one to look at considering the Lake District, Pennines and the Yorkshire Dales aren't that far away. Since leaving scouts I've not really had chance to do anything like it. Also might take up swimming again when I get to uni. Oh the possibilities.

    I know someone who went to Cambridge and has joined their rowing team (now trying to make the first) :eek:

    How many clothes do I have to take? I think I wear most of the same clothes anyway, once I've charity-shopped stuff I never wear (like the nirvana tshirt I bought in Yr 9! full of holes! actually, that can go bin), I could probably take all of it.

    Need to take my computer, bathroom stuff, n kitchen stuff. I might buy a toasted sandwich maker to take, grown quite fond of banana + chocolate spread toasties.

    my god - i swear EVERYONE will take a sandwich toaster! i would suggest waiting to see what everyone else has bought before taking this sort of item - same goes for the blender/smoothie maker.

    i'd wait till your well settled in before goin for anything like that, then you can talk with the rest of the people and arrange who brings what and share them!

    The one thing I'm not sure about is whether to bring a mini fridge. I know everyone brings one but I am very partial to a cold can of coke and I can't see them lasting long if I leave them in the communal fridge!

    Just had a thought mind, better wait till the end of summer and see if I can get one in the end of summer sales.

    Really don't think theres any need for a mini fridge
    Get used to sharing and put them in the communal fridge! Or stop drinking coke all together, a lager a day helps you work rest and play...

    make sure you're allowed a mini-fridge before buying one though! some halls dont allow anything like that in your rooms.
