    Well I'm starting to look in home and furniture magazines and sussing out what I want for my place. I've so far bought 2 CD Racks (I've still got CD's that won't fit on dammit) and a mug.

    Big spending hehe.

    I have quite a good list!

    - See-through bowls from the disney store. You can see where the milk is on your cereal!
    - A cocktail shaker
    - An enormous pink pitcher
    - Bunny rabbit fairy lights
    - Matching plates/bowls/cups, one set of tinkerbell, one set of cinderella
    - Matching elephant cup and plate from the zoo
    - Ice cube trays
    - Fairy cookbook
    - Pink fluffy heart fairy lights
    - Pajamas

    That's all I can think of, but I suspect there is more. BTW, re-reading the list, I sound like a tremendous girl. Actually, it's probably true, but I like to think I have a cool side too.

    Forget your cool side, I'm intriged by these disney bowls. First of all, what characters do they have on (can I get Nemo?) and secondly, would they significantly improve the experience of eating of my Special K???

    And Argos and Woolworths!

    There's no point with expensive fancy pots and pans, guaranteed you will manage to burn something onto them pretty quickly!

    This seems to imply that I will attempt to cook using something other than a takeaway menu during my 4 years...

    Of course you will! There are guys in my flat who survive on take away meals and tesco value ready meals but as soon as they get drunk they suddenly realise they can cook and it's left to the rest of us to clear up the brown mess in the pans the next morning.

    There might be a few things you need to buy - basically anything you're sharing with your family but will want when your away like maybe a few things for the bathroom. Also even if you're catered you will probably want glasses, and a bit of cutlery/crockery for the occasional slice of toast at 3AM.
