Deciding what we’re going to do in December. Hello Australia.
Stepping out from the kitchen into the alleyway behind work for some fresh air at lunchtime. No wind, a warmer day and so fresh after being in a hot cafe.
The same guy from yesterday came in and told me again how funny he thought my fish pun sign was. You’d think that wouldn’t still make me happy. But it does!

Walking down to there pool and seeing the clear blue sky, feeling no wind and looking out at the flat, beautiful sea. Felt a bit bad that I was about to pay to go into a pool. Although it would have been freezing out there!
Seeing photos of the house we’ll be staying at in Australia in December. Oh my god. It’s going to be so good!

Listening to the Scott Mills podcast and hearing how much money listeners had raised for Comic Relief.
