I am so grateful and relieved to finally be here. The last 7 months is behind us. No more solo parenting for me. The Shropshire boy must be in shock, all his 3 girls back: noisy, loving, cuddles, singing, dancing, tantrums, parenting again.
In some ways, it has been a huge week. Adjusting to life in a new country. Adjusting to being a family again. Swimming in the pool most days. Or should I say, pools. This is the view of the pools from our apartment. Two of the pools can't be seen in this photo. We do like the pools. A lot.
Today we visited the kinder we have enrolled Abbey in, and they have a space available, yay! (not many do) It is a short walk away, looks to be clean and friendly and offers Chinese as part of the curriculum. Abbey was not too sure today, but I know she will love it after a few days there. Zoe will miss her terribly (so will I) Kinder does not start till August, so we still have time to explore Hong Kong together.
Our shipping has arrived. 51 packages in all, most of them big boxes. All for me to rummage around in and re-discover what the heck we bought with us. I am so grateful and relieved that they all arrived. Of course, the first boxes I unpacked where the ones containing my sewing machine and overlocker. Second, I found two wine glasses, the Shropshire boy and I are using them right now. The rest of the boxes can wait, there is no hurry. We need some furniture to put most things in or on first.
Tomorrow we are off exploring. Hopefully to see some sights, drink some fancy tea and eat some local cuisine. I am quite excited that our Hong Kong adventure has (finally) begun.
Have a lovely weekend peeps,
