Where I stayed
It feels so strange to have one desk which is my own and have set working hours and a dress code
It was glorious weather all through the week but come Friday it turned gloomy, grey and raining. It put a complete damper on my plans over the weekend. It was just that horrible you didn't want to venture outside. I went to drinks with work people on the Friday and joined Jodene (the other new girl) at her friends drinks. I got cornered by this guy who spent at least an hour explaining how lucky he was to have a wife who accepted his kids....I was a little like I kind of know that already...and I don't have my own kids! I ended up tripping up on my way home and just lying there on the pavement in shock and embaressment...probably making passersby think I was more hurt than I was. I managed to give myself a black knee but not rip one of only two pairs of trousers I have here so that was good.
At the weekend I was so exhausted I met up with a friend for brunch then headed back to bed! All day...it was raining afterall so nothing lost. I went to the theatre in the evening and it felt great to get out and see some culture. I went to see the Great Gatsby which is a little like the 39 Steps based in the 20s with a few people playing loads of roles. Sunday was literally looking for stuff for the house like duvets, pillows and sheets. Starting to feel very settled and can not imagine picking up my bag to move onto the next place! No desire to do that whatsoever. I am going to try and get away for a couple of weekends with people at some point but my travels are over for a bit. I don't think you can travel for more than 6 months continuously without it starting to wear you down. I am now going to be in Europe over Dec for a month so looking forward to seeing everyone!
