We really needed cell phones, so I decided to let Ty go up to the phone store without me so I could make dinner. He came home with these 2 phones. Guess which phone is for me. Is it the sleek gold-plated one with the built in camera and mp3 player? Or is it the heavy gray brick that you have to scroll over about 10 times in order to read a few words in a text message? I was grateful when he gave me my phone, but when I saw his, I really could not stop laughing. I don't need a camera or an mp3 player anyway, but it was pretty funny. To Ty's defense, he got the gold phone for free with the plan. And my wonderful gray phone, that I lovingly refer to as 'The Brick' is perfect for me. It has already made it through being dropped twice. I guess Tyler knows all too well that getting a nice phone for me is a mistake becuase I tend to drop them every so often.
It is a beautiful day in London today. I decided to take a few pictures of the park by our flat. The fall colors are so pretty. Usually I'm happy to see Fall go becuase it means the beginning of the ski season, but since the ski season doesn't really exist here, I am sad to see the leaves falling.
I'm starting to really love it here. For a while there, I thought my body was rejecting this country, but I'm loving it more and more every day. I am so excited that the Christmas season is here! It is such a fun time to be in London. All the streets are decorated with lights and decorations, it is so much fun to walk around and see all the window displays of the big department stores. The ice skating rinks are open at the parks here and I was so excited to go for a Christmas date, but we found out that it was $24 a person, so we decided that neither of us really like ice skating that much anyway.
This is the view of the city from Parliament Hill at the Heath. The pollution was bad this day, but I took it becuase you can see Ty's building in it. I wish I knew how to insert an arrow so I could point it out.
