In the near future and not so near future?

Me, very near future, early night with dh, much needed

not so near future: I am having November and December off work and am looking forward to it enormously.

If you haven't got anything to look forward to, what could you arrange?

Looking forward to graduating next summer (fingers crossed!) and starting PGCE this time next year (supposing that I've graduated, and that they'll actually let me do a PGCE!)

Me and dh are going back to Exeter for 3 days at the end of the month, and I'm really looking forward to seeing my friends there and shopping at boots, topshop etc. Though I'm not sure I can go and see my house, I could cry.

I'd like to organize a nice sky holiday for the whole family, so I hope it snows a lot here in Italy, like it did last year.
