Hello from work lunch hour

It has come to my attention (when my very own sister commented on a snowman picture I just put up on my facebook page, that has been on here since like February, like she had never seen it before!!) that very few people read this page. And you know what - I kind of like that. The people that are "here" want to be here and I know you care about me (hopefully!! LOL). I can always steer Kel here later on when I have actually written a few more entries to make things a bit more interesting! Facebook has been making me parranoid lately. I see people talk to other people and what people are up to and sometimes I feel really far away! (Like I am, but still!) I inadvertantly insulted a vegatarian on Facebook by commenting on the whole Seal EU ban on his wall and I ended up earasing them from my friends. And I felt like earasing my whole facebook actually. I didn't mean to be mean it just came out. Sometime things just come out to easily online. Maybe I shouldn't even REwrite it online! But pah! I will keep holding on to the - those who are reading care.

I am not coming home in August (like I maybe promised I would). I am sorry for these semi broken promises. I hope you know that I never like to dissapoint anyone. I will be in Regina 12 September until 27 Septemeber, but then I come back to London. And then I am home again at Christmas: 12 December to 10 January. And back to London again. I am happy with my decision, and I am looking forward to another year in the city and planning for all that may come along. But it is still hard (as I am sure jen can attest to) to be away from your family and friends at home and just gone really. My mind plays tricks on me; makes me think I loosing all my friends, that I was never a good friend, that I am being a bad friend now for not being better in touch. I hope that is not the case. But things have changed a lot in the last 2 years. I guess I am have changed too. I hope for the better. But jeez I just can't tell when I am in these heightend times of parranoia!

Thanks for reading though, because I am glad you are here.

Welcome to the day of boats! We knew it would be a long day, so Mark and I left the house at 8:30 in the morning and walked down to Greenwich.

We took the Thames Clipper from Greenwich to Westminster. (30 minutes)

Then we got on a slower boat to Hampton Court. It was a 3.5 hour ride up the river. Passed Chiswick, Kew, Richmond and beyond! The views were great, and our boat driver did some tourguide ish stuff and told us about the sites along the way.
Below is the boat we rode on. We sat on the front deck chairs. It is also a beautiful and warm day.

This is Hampton Court Palace. Where Henry VIII lived back in the day. I didn't even know there was a another castle so close by to see!

Lovely gardens!

Weird tree roots sticking up from the ground!

Big leaves!
