    Hi,

    So basically, my parents are moving house after my exams finish later this month. We've already got the house, and it's quite far as it's in a tiny village about over an hour away.

    The nearest friend would've been about a 5-10 minute drive away, but she moved back to Portugal in May . I don't feel like driving for 1+ hours frequently to meet up with anyone I know, mostly due to petrol costs.

    I have a part-time job so could get more hours, along with a week's work experience someplace else.
    A friend of mine in Northern Ireland said I could go over and visit them for a week or two for a holiday, but I'm not sure I want to go alone as everyone else seems to be skint atm.
    However, I do have plans for snowboarding lessons with someone so that's one weekend taken up I guess.

    What else can I do in the summer to keep me occupied for the long 2 and a half months before I start uni?

    Thank you.
