... one made me unbelievably sad because it was a rejection by a past employer that I consider to be a beloved (yet hot and cold, and occasionally psychologically abusive) ex. There's little less satisfying than unrequited love eh? I mean, I'm British so I won't describe how I felt...but suffice to say that my reaction to their 'actually no we changed our minds' was... well, it was pathetic.

After our ferry ride it was time to head back home and prepare for the next day at work. Out mini break was just what the doctor had ordered and I'm pleased I have made the effort to start discovering whats on my doorstep, after all I have the chance to visit places that people back home dream of.
