Back in business…

Wow, it has been a long time since we last blogged, sorry! With the excitement of Christmas & the New Year, time has run away from us.

Following on from our last post, since then we have had a huge amount of snow, like most of the country did! Wellies, hats and scarves became ordinary items of my work outfits and the campus looked beautiful. Here are a couple of snaps…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

It’s that time of year…

It’s that time of year again….archiving!

Good afternoon world!

Here’s a brief little insight into our hot and sweaty (yuck) afternoon…

This afternoon the Outreach Team played a part in the Student Funding Team’s archiving! This happens once a year and it normally takes one person a whole day of mind-numbing work to get it done. So ‘tadaaaaar’ the Outreach Team (minus Hannah) helped out and it only took about an hour and a half! Continue reading
