In other news today I have been doing my tasks - buying candles for my advent wreath, recycling, collecting dry cleaning, doing the washing, doing a few bits of shopping, sorting out our finances and I have even managed to get our answering machine to work again.

The next task is to FINALLY book airtickets for getting home at Christmas...oh, and then to have a bath! I am hoping that mr.ncot is going to cook a nice curry this evening.
