My Parents just left. I won't see them again untill March. Crazy. But my brother is heading to France for a month or so. As a result he has left all the stuff he has no use for at my flat. It's not a bad hall either:

•A CD player thats much better then mine

•A Large set of headphones, nice Koss ones

•A set of knives (don't ask)

•An extra backpack

•A Longboard style skate board

I'm going to try testing the longboard as my new meathod of comuting to work. I can't wait to see the look on my co-workers faces when i rock up to work with that Monster.

But this is all part of many changes going on around my flat. Dion and Nicole, the couple that live in my flat are moving to Australia in November. Since they are on the lease, it means that I have to put Kirstan on the lease, set up a new bank account for the rent, and find someone(s) to rent the room. Crazy. I have also resolved to re-focus (no pun intended) my time into more photographic activites. The fisrt fruit of this is my mini-portfolio Click Me. Have a look if you feel like it.

in the short term I'm heading down to the Ile of White for a sailing race on thursday and friday. The whole thing is paid for by my work as it's a big PR event for the major players in the british construction industry. I've never raced as crew on a yhat before, so im a little nervous. At the very least it will be a good time to take some pictures.

My Parental units are visiting england, with my brother in tow. Josh stayed at my flat for a few nights, while mom and dad stayed with my Dad's cousin just north of London (Yep, thems your parents Tom). My parents and brother headed down to Cornwall a few day later, with the plan being that I follow the next week due to my having to work.

Well, someone mentioned this thing to my parents, it may need to be moved now :)

I Just got back from the above mentioned 7 days holiday in Cornwall. I friggen needed it too. I got to see the sea for the first time in ages. In fact the train line down to Cornwall has this really crazy bit as it runs right along the edge of the ocean, and at the same time it passes through tunnels in the edge of the sea cliffs. My parents are in england, so they were already down in St. Ives with my brother and big chunk of the family. Surfing and making sand castles sure beats working in a polluted city any day. We also hit up a local bar, but that nights activites will be kept under wraps, to protect the "innocent". It did involve Pac-Man.

*My flatmate just asked me if many people can read this online. I said no of course. It's true really, not "many" people can see this online. After all, most of the worls population has not internet accesss. Of course, Congoleases goat heards are not really interested in what my flat mate is up to :)

After St. Ives, My Parents rented a car and we drove up to see some friends near Plymouth. On the way we stopped in at the Eden Project. The project is a large series of HUGE Geodesic Greenhouses built in an old abandonded China Clay pit. It's amazing, from an architectual standpoint if nothing else. My dad was more interestd in the plants of course. We stayed that night at the Cades (Hello Cades!), my parents ex-flat mates, and their three offspring, Jo, Charotte and Emily. Jo is the only person who is a crazier driver then my brother, and thats in his words. Wow Jo, I'm impressed! The Cades live on a farm, and this meant that they had (Drum Roll) BABY GUNEIA PIGS! They make really cool noises and eat grass just like normal one, but are only 1/3 the size!

Since I had to be back to work today, I jumped on a train at Plymouth and headed back up to London. Trains are fun.

My Laundry is done. I go now.
