    staying at home. However, it isn't the parental home, but my own home, so maybe a little different. Mortgage and bills will probably cost aprox £100 a week

    I am going into catered halls - will be costing me £108.15 (it is forever etched in my mind!) per week.

    I am most definately not staying at home - a) it would be impossible due to the four hour drive/5-6 hour train journey and b) I don't want to.

    If there is one thing this gap year has taught me it's that I am now most definately ready to leave home - I have been going back and forth between my home and being away - and I need about 2 weeks to readjust to living with my mum every time I return.

    Part of me would prefer to be going self catering - because I quite enjoy domestic/looking after myself chores - but I'm happy with my choice.

    That'll be Exeter then

    I'm not that bothered - only thing I'm worried about is how to convince myself that my £50 pw extra spending money (what's left over from my loan) is NOT to be used to satisfy my 'new clothes' fetish :rolleyes:
