Paint and Water 
It's quite something to see the land you've lived in for five years suddenly spread out before you, and looking so small, with the rising sun shining way out into the endless Pacific. Anyway, I had an uneventful journey, and all the buses connected at the far end. Not sure how I'll manage it going home, since I'll probably be carrying a lot more. Mum has offered me the musical keyboard, but it weighs quite a bit, and dosn't fit in the suitcase!

We've had a lot of heavy rain here, and we're right in the middle of it! Mum had to post a form, but due to the Oxfordshire postal workers being on strike, had to try and find a post box in Wiltshire, which is just a few miles away. We had some difficulty though, because quite a few roads were still flooded the day after, with water still pouring off the fields. Managed to get to a post box. Not sure if they'll be able to collect it!

Currently helping Mum remove paint from the window ledge. There's about 8 layers - you can tell all the different colours. We're using this solvent stuff that dissolves the paint really well. Unfortunately it also dissolves everything else, so we've had to be a bit careful...
