How did everyone spend their bank holiday weekend? I'm not sure about you guys, but it was fantastic weather up here, if a bit on the windy side. My uncle spent it running the marathon, my cousins spent it having a get together potluck lunch/picnic in one of their gardens (whoever have the most toys at their house have to host it because more toys = more distracted children = momentarily peace for parents), and half my family spent it in bed sick with a cold/flu (yes, I am sick, again. I know, moan, groan, grumble).
And of course, there is Jon, my brother who I haven't seen in 2 weeks because he's holed up in his uni dorms, studying like a maniac for his summer exams. I'm sure he's not the only one out there, as proven by the gift basket of today.
With exam season right on the doorstep, I'm sure we would be seeing a lot more of these Exam Cram gift baskets heading out.
This one is being winged off to Joel, in Bristol (UK) who is working hard on the studies for his. It was sent by David and Jen from across the pond.
The basket is designed with lots of nibbles for students to reach and snack on without having to stop writing with their other hand (taking time to open the packets do not count) There is even a block of cheese in it to be kept in the fridge for ready raiding for those midnight of the night skirmishes with your snacking urges.
Let's not forget the mug as well, my brother simply cannot study unless armed with a pot of tea by his side (Assam, no sugar, no honey, no milk, strictly three teabags per pot) We may not be able to provide the teapot, but a mug fits into a basket perfectly!
Study hard, students! Good Luck with your exams!
