The other weird guy that was staying at the park has moved out and a girl has moved in so that's all good! Also opened our Christmas cards today, thank you to those who sent them :) Put a few decorations up. Will add some more a bit closer to Christmas. It's crazy hearing Christmas songs on the radio when it's 26 degrees! Bed now, up early ...
