There is, quite a stunning mist outside. I felt like I was on the Yorkshire moors! I wanted to call out for Heathcliff.

The weekend with Steven was lovely. We wandered all over the city. He came to church with me, which was wonderful. Even if he hasn't been to mass for eight years and he's an atheist. It was one of the most wonderful gestures anyone's ever done for me.

What ticket for Melbourne trip. Thankyou very much, Julie. Studied for history yesterday. History exam is on tomorrow. Professor French has promised a very hard one. Thrilling stuff. >_<

Wish me luck, peoples!
