One week down!

SO we have been here 1 week already.  It has gone so fast but at the same time it feels like we never left.  Living on the same street as last time makes it feel a lot like home.  I thought I would give you a one week overview - on a scale of 1 -1 0  (one being 'all is good' and 10 being 'get me home now!')

 Bugs and creepy crawlies              1         only one cockroach and tiny spider inside        
Homesickness                                1         This feels a bit like home and the letter on Thursday helped
Cleanliness                                    2           Our blankets leave amazing amounts of fluff everywhere but                                                                                                        our newly renovated home is clean and fresh
School work                               5            Jeremy had first week at home and was distracting but we have                                                                                                                                  started
Sleep                                           5            We have a real bed this year - but sleeping is still broken
Tan                                            8              Only a couple of opportunities to get in the sun - still time though
Boredom                                   7              Already read 2 books, done 3 puzzles and watched a Chinese                                                                                                                        soap opera

Overall things are going well. Before we left we were given a pile of letters and treats.  We are to read them one a week.  Thursday I opened the first one.  A few chocs and a greatly encouraging message.  Can't wait till next Thurs.
 We miss you all.
Today is the first day for the SOE so I will update you again soon with some more serious news!


  1. Glad things are going well, counting down until we come over. How did the SOE first day go and how many students.

  2. Good to see all is going well. :)
