Where has the sunshine gone? We've had rain, rain, rain for weeks. Not that I've noticed much, as I've been practically hand-cuffed to my computer in attempt to progress further with my dissertation. However, a new site has been uploded: AtomicKittenz.com. I've yet to update this site's portfolio sections, though.

I went to the Isle of Wight on Saturday. On the ferry home, a group dressed in pirate outfits came onto the ferry and talked loudly in pirate-speak and sang all the way back on the 30-minute journey to Southampton. They sang You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin', Bohemian Rhapsody, and New York, New York. That was the only time in my life that I've been on a boat with a bunch of pirates. Earlier, I'd spent the time playing casino games and went to the Needles (Alum Bay) to fill glass jars with coloured sand.
Back from London at last! Had two perfect sunny days (just a little rain today). Wednesday, I went to Baker Street and walked around Regent's Park, then down to Oxford Street (shopping) and to Regent Street to Piccadilly Circus. Went back through and back to the hotel to rest my legs and watch some television. No computers. Nothing to annoy me. Therapeutic. Today, I went to Baker Street and Regent's Park again. Lovely. Then, I walked to Oxford Street to Charing Cross Road where I walked toward Leicester Square, stopping in bookshops. I've just finished "North and South" and all of the others I bought this year. I looked but found nothing. It rained. I walked through Leicester Square, to Green Park and Knightsbridge for a stop at some of the shops there before taking the tube back to the hotel and leaving. Wish I'd spent the evening as it was picturesque. Would have loved another walk around the park or out with friends. London isn't too bad (it can be great) if you have someone to share it with.
I am off to London for a few days, so apologies if I don't get back to you until the weekend. Dissertation work has been going a bit slow, but I've made progress on other projects. Three weekends ago, I went to a corn maze with a friend (it's a maze made in a corn field). Then, I've seen Spider-Man 2 twice since and King Arthur. Spider-Man 2 was good fun, but King Arthur was just rubbish with cheesey dialogue, in my opinion, but I wasn't expecting a good film.
