This week I have...

I meant to post this yesterday but things have been a little crazy. Yesterday I finished work to find my purse (or wallet as you guys call it!) wasn't in my bag. I've spent the last two days turning my room upside down, calling my banks, excessively checking my online banking, calling various police stations and crying. I don't know if it's just lost or if it's been stolen but it's been a really sucky few days trying to sort it all out. I'm crossing my fingers it shows up. Anywhere, here's what I've done this week, interspersed with photos I took on Friday at the pier.
