August 2014: Results, GBBO & Turning 17

The 5th of August was, to some extent, judgement day for me and thousands of other teenagers. It's the day that everyone not-so-silently dreads. There's nation-wide silence until the post comes and I'm pretty sure that cake-sales spike drastically on the 5th. You've either got to comfort-eat or celebrate... If you haven't caught on yet, the 5th of August was the day of my exam results. I was getting my Higher results (equivalent to A-levels, I think) and, luckily, I did about as well as I was expecting, if not a little better. I ended up with AABBD - A's for english and administration, Bs for modern studies and biology, and a D for maths. I'm relieved. :'D

On the 6th, life got a little bit better when The Great British Bake-Off returned. I'm a long-term, crazy GBBO fan, having watched it obsessively since it started in 2010. This season is so good already and we're only a few weeks in. Since it started, I've had at least 10 people tell me that I look and act like Martha... I'll take that as a compliment. :3

I turned 17 on the 8th of August! Before you ask, I feel no different now that I'm 17. In fact, I forget my age pretty much daily. I had a lovely day at home with my family then had my friends round on the 10th, which was also super lovely. I love my friends quite a lot. ♥ A couple of days before I turned 17, this little blog of mine turned 7. I did a full post about my blogoversary and thanked a few people who have helped me along the way which you can see here. I still can't quite believe that I've been blogging for 7 years...

I hope you all had a great month and that September is even better. :D
Lots of love, Cat


  1. Results day is terrifying- my postie was late!! Great British Bake Off is everything, but I've missed the past couple of weeks because I have rugby! D: Also happy birthday - woooo 17!!x

    1. Ohh it really is! My post-man was earlier than usual but it was still half 12 when he came so it's actually much later than most people. :'D Thank you! ♥
