Hope you're all enjoying the nice long weekend, heard the weather isn't that great, if it's any consolation it's 4pm here on a Sunday afternoon & it's just brightening up after a big storm & heavy rain, it got so dark for a while it was like we'd been plunged straight into night time!!
We survived Ikea, interesting....! The locals treat it as a day out as many live in such small apartments, that they kind of camp out & relax in the chairs, on the beds etc. for many an hour with their own food & flasks! We got there as the doors opened & got ahead of the crowds, not even daring to stop for breakfast!! It worked, the market place was relatively empty & we filled up a trolley very quickly (sis, for the first time ever - NO tealights & NO napkins purchased!)
Next trip was for an iron & ironing board (some of you will know how important that is to Andy - when he stayed with Lou & I he used it more than us 2 put together for 2 years ;)
Pit stop in Hooters (I'll let Andy describe that experience at the end.....!!). Whilst in there, read an e-mail from Lou & got a bit teary, what a soppy cow I am!!
Missing out on her Birthday celebrations :(
Lots of cleaning, unpacking & settling in, we felt really happy. So, a well deserved beer & food in the Den bar & restaurant, cool hey Dad?! The night before we met a really nice guy called Alistair, so we met with him again & hit a few bars. Really love it here, it is very sociable & very liveable. And we've only explored such a small part so far, lots more to come as well as the sightseeing - all in good time.
Today, more electrical things, a DVD player - DVD's cheap as chips, £1 for DVD & 75p for a CD, our TV only has 1 English speaking channel so that will be our entertainment. Also got an air humidifier, as I'm struggling with a cough & sore throat with the heat, pollution & air con, I think I'm driving Andy mad
No internet yet in the apartment, week after next hopefully however most bars have free wi-fi (and yes, that's where we are now!). No photo's of the apartment yet as it resembles a Chinese laundry at the mo, catching up on all our washing! Supermarket next, as finally we can make some food.
Mad moment, just seen a lady walk by with a small white poodle with pink dyed ears and little red boots..... hmmm..... sadly the silly little dog culture is quite big here but that was a shock!!
Back to work for us two tomorrow, unlike you guys!!!
Missing Facebook & loving your comments on here, Lorraine especially :)
There are hundreds of views on here, so please put some comments & say hi, we know you're reading them!! Will reply to personal e-mails soon too.
Anyway, bye for now from me xx
The beer is good here and I've been converted to a lager drinker to my better judgement
Took Tracy to Hooters yesterday for lunch which was great. Took me awhile to put my eyes back in lol. Tracy has now banned us from going there. I really don't understand why as the ladies were very friendly and lovely looking in their short shorts and tight tops. They weren't the biggest Hooters I've seen or anywhere near as good as Tracy's. But, Boy's when you come over I'll take you there with or without Tracy.
Right best get off before I get slapped again.
As Tracy said earlier please post some comments or just say hi as its really nice to see who's been on and to hear what your doing xx
