I had an awesome weekend - I did a reiki course! It was quite trippy in a way, just a little glimpse at a whole different world, but it was a really fun thing to do and just a fascinating concept. So in theory I can now do reiki on people. In practice of course I probably should have a bit more practice... that's what Mark's for luckily ;)

We had a cool night with Jody and Daniel the other night. They've just gotten back from volunteering in South America, and had so many awesome stories to tell and photos to see. So exciting! We're going to hang out on Saturday too and wander around some castles and stuff out in Kent.

We've also been continuing our culinary tour of London - we've had some awesome little wanders to work in the sunshine lately, followed by yummo coffee and croissants in Exmouth Market. There's this awesome little patisserie there that makes the best croissants... so good, and not bad coffee either.

We also went to see the Transformers movie last night. I have to admit I wasn't expecting a lot at all, so I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't really watch the cartoons when I was a kid though, so didn't really know what to expect. I thought it was pretty good - awesome CGI stuff with the transformer robots, although some of the scale model scenes where buildings were wrecked etc were a bit dodgy. Mark wasn't too impressed though - he didn't think they did justice to Optimus Prime...

Oh, and I didn't have any new pics to put up, so here are a couple that we took on the way back from Norway - a beautiful sunny shot over the sea, and a pic of the little patchwork fields coming down in England.

Never heard of Reiki. Had to Wiki it. See it's "proposed for the treatment of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual diseases". Don't need a diagnosis, as it's the universal healer. Scuse my scepticism Ellie - you'll have to convince me by demonstration when you're back in Oz.

Love, UB
