Today I watched Gordon Brown say goodbye and sympathised with him though I'm not a Labour fan.
Today I went to watch the Abingdon Dragonboat Race.
Today I finally washed the sheets after what felt like a year. Didn't find rice under the pillows this time.
Today I was gutted to find that my favourite MP, Dr. Evan Harris had lost his seat to the Tories. It was supposed to be a safe seat! However, we now have a hung parliament. Yay.
Today I voted in the UK General Election.
Today I watched some TED Talks, and got inspired by cellular automaton, mathematics, and 'mass custom creativity'.
Today Peter showed me how to play Magic: The Gathering.
Today I read and loved the tattered pages of Peeps at Many Lands: Japan (published 1907), which Peter bought me from a church fair in Hayle.
Today I got really anxious when I realised that I didn't qualify for UK citizenship yet (unless I got married, which I didn't want to), but Peter found some small print which said I could apply for ILTR next year. Phew.
Today it rained and rained, and I spent too much time on the internet though I was supposed to 'get away'.
Today we had a lazy day in, reading, napping, drawing, and enjoying the sea view.
Today we napped on a beach at St Ives, and I ate Cornish pasty, crab, squid, and ice-cream.
Today we watched a spectacular sunset from our seaview deck, and then sang in the starlight till it got creepy.
Today we drove for 30 mins to Truro so I could shop in M&S.
Today I brought nearly half of all my possessions to the holiday cottage in Hayle, Cornwall. That should last me weeks.
