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!
