The bad news: I am typing this out from my iPhone because we don't have Internet till 3 February or so.
The good news: I finally have an iPhone! Hehe. And I have arrived (a month ago) in the UK! We are waiting on our personal property to arrive but have settled as much as possible in housing.
So much to update on but so little keyboard to type with, so for now just accept my belated holiday wishes. We'll be back to normal soon.
