Yesterday, Uncle Geoff, Aunt Joan and I drove two hours to Cambridge to see my cousin Nicola. It was quite fun. Cambridge is a beautiful city with really pretty gardens and there is a river than runs through the whole campus.

On that river they offer somthing called "punting". so we hired a boat and Nicola's boyfriend, Dave, did the actual punting while we louged in the gondola like boat. There were some hits to other boats but it all was fine...even after we hit a set of 3 boats chained under a bridge and broke the chain off which caused the boats to swing out around into the pathway of everything else!

i'll add some pix of this a little later on. as of right now, i can't get them onto the computer.

last night i also moved house and am now staying with Uncle Pete and Aunti Di. They bought me tomato juice and chocolate chip cookies! we had been talking casually about both of those things the day before! hehe.

so today, Auntie Di and i are going to visit Vicky, Nick, Kayla and Aidan again.
Tomorrow or Wednesday i might actually get into London!

more words for the vocab:
yob - backwards boy (slang)
rucksack - backpack
