I know I did nothing wrong - I was left with a very sick cat... I am wondering about the pet sitting thing and whether or not it is really me. Although I must say it's been great not to have paid accommodation for the past three plus weeks. However it does come at a cost...as per the above and not being able to get out for the whole day. I am an hour's train ride from central London plus add in another half hour to walk to the tube station and back - I try not to be gone more than six hours so I am constantly looking at my watch.
Lonely? No, not really. Friends and family are only an email, phone call or Skype call away. I am pretty independent and do enjoy my own company. I will be seeing a friend next week for the day and another one the week after for about ten days. Ask me later on in February how it's going.
