    Blissy, I want a book chair! Where do you get them? Oh, and as well as stationery, get floppy disks or some other storage thingy, if you're going to use computers a lot.
    Try upstairs in Waterstones. I bought one there just before Christmas. Expensive for what is essentially a scaled down deckchair - although less colourful.[/QUOTE]

    I worked there over X-mas, and they *should* be marked down by now. I think Woolies also sell them- and yup, they are expensive, but worth it. History essay, 'does childhood have a history?' Urgh. Much readage

    From what I remember, it was about seven pounds for a small one, you know, regular sized book, but hardbacked, and about twelve pounds for a big book.

    Hmm.

    *thinks boarding school*

    Cereal..probably (everyone still nicks mine, I hope uni is slightly better). Washing stuff (softener) Your own mug. Definitely own bedding - and a throw or two, it makes a real difference. Posters and pictures for the walls. Hi/fi - one of those portable one though, thinking of the 8 week term problem. A rug helps too. And of course...lots and lots of 11p noodles from tesco

    Do many people bother taking their hi-fi's for such a short time or do they just use the CD drive on their computer/laptop? Am just considering using that rather than lugging a hi-fi around!!!

    Well I've got a Denon mini system that I take, other people do take seperate systems, though you have to be quite keen on your music to do so.

    I am certainly not going to bring a stereo as well as my laptop, but then I'll be flying back and forth across the North Sea all the time. I am considering bringing a pair of extra speakers though.
