    Good old general studies, managed to fail the ever so slightly Mathsy one, I get nervous at the sight of a graph but got 100% on the 'what is your opinion?' one. Such a waste of time, still have no idea why they bother with it.

    Haha you shouldn't knock it. I'm convinced that me getting an A in it contributed massively to me getting several offers from Universities I didn't have the grades to get in to. Either that or my personal statement was just that good, something I consider to be very unlikely.

Trotted over to a different part of the beach to do a little jumping as well, tide was in before we left to get there though so was an absolute nightmare, amount of ridiculously rocks we had to climb and then somehow negotiate our way down just to do the same for the next rock. Never again, I'll take the road
    Haha, when I put my feet in, it wasn't as bad as I thought, for about 20 seconds, til my feet went blue. And I mean blue.

    Fmd it was cold. Took about an hour for the feeling to come back in my feet.

    Got this thing about swimming wherever I go tbh. So far have swum in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Think I'll give the Arctic a miss, if this was anything to go by.

    Haha yeah, I'm not sure what I was expecting it to be like at 9:30am but I lost all feeling in my toes pretty quickly but as I said it did get a lot nicer.
    Am struggling to imagine what it's like down under during your summers.

    Girlfriend tried to get me to go in the Sea at Cape Cornwall a few days after Christmas last year, I told her it was simply not going to happen. And it didn't, thank god.

    Went swimming once in Australia and cut my foot on some bloody coral, no one told me not to stand up on it.

    One of the local villages has everybody run into the sea on New Years Eve at the strike of midnight. Can imagine that's absolutely freezing, also a miracle how there aren't a number of casualties. Darkness+alcohol+water+pandemonium doesn't seem like an ideal mix

    Was a hair's breadth away from making a joke about Michael Barrymore in response to this. But I won't...though the tempation is very much there...

    Well it wasn't bloody until you cut your foot on it!
    Hate thinking about what is under the water. Jus the idea of weaver fish induces mild panic

    Hot, tbh. Very bloody hot. Tend to find the water here, for the most part, gives you a shock when you first get in, but afterwards is really refreshing. Was a bit surprised not to get that shock when I first went in over your way. I think the cold there bypasses the nerve-endings and goes straight to your bones.

    Now is a great time to swim here. The water is warmer than the outside temperature. Win.

    But honestly, is there ever a day that's not a good day for an umbrella hat?

    Well, some have a different view, but I think not.
