    I know! I've already moaned to my mum and my boyfriend about this, but they don't seem to care. I think I might hide it under my bed everytime I've finished using it.
    This is one of my pet hates. I hate having to scrape out other peoples manky old cheese before I can use it *cringe*

    When I went to open days, I saw the kitchen having cupboards. The lady said that each student have their own to store stuff. I forgot how big were they. Can someone tell/describe to me how small or big is it.

    I doubt rooms will be big enough for that amount of storage! Also, keeping your kitchen stuff in your room is the fastest way of getting a reputation for being unfriendly, selfish and stuck up!

    I know what you mean, but at the same time if the cupboards in the kitchen are too small surely i might as well just put stuff in my room? I aint got much, just a few saucepans, plates, 1 cheese grater (!), umm and a few utensils etc.
    I hope people wont hold it against me if I wanna store some sutff in my room

    The cupboards in our kitchen were big enough for all my food and cooking stuff. I moved partway through the year and never got another cupboard so ended up keeping everything in a box in the bottom of my wardrobe. Was fine.

    If your uni is really strict about dirty plates and stuff (mine got thrown in the bin a lot by the cleaners, even if it was just a frying pan I'd left by the sink whilst I ate my egg on toast), take a washing up bowl. Then you can stash your dishes in your room til you've got time to wash it up. Sounds disgusting but it's better than fishing cutlery out of someone's rotten curry.

    Can anybody recommend an easy to follow recipe book. I'm going self catering and I'm not great at the whole cooking thing.
    This book is great : http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...395239-6428665
    My nan bought it as a going away present for me before I go to uni...and it's really good. The pages are divided like "recipes with one pan", "recipes with one pan and a kettle", "recipes with a sandwich toaster" etc. it's gr8!

    That's what's been recommended to me so far by my sisters and everyone else I know who's gone to uni.

    Ooh i definitely need to buy that thanks for the link :p: One thing im planning on doing is accompanying my parents to Tescos (or with their credit card if i can nick it lol) to buy a trolley full of cans!
    Im sure that will allow me to last for a few weeks, cos all ill be spending money on at first is archers and vodka

    p.s. I am not an alcoholic as the above post would suggest

    Meh, you can get them free from the Welfare service most of the time.

    And Freshers' Week may not be all you think it will in terms of rampant sex.
