I've had a long and busy week; but this weekend, made up for it as I got to see my dad. I had a very early start this week because of work; last time I had starts this early (here) it was summer and not too bad, this time though I woke up and it still looked like the dead of night. I think Alex knew I needed cheering up this week and so he bought me Ronnie the Reindeer; chocolate and Christmas-can it get any better?! I also took a little lone trip to Richmond yesterday. I'm didn't really wanna venture out on my own but the weather looked nice and autumnal and I didn't want to spend the day cooped up in the house. It was a nice couple of hours out and I managed to pick up a few gifts etc.
