Hi - how are you?
Iím ok. Actually canít really complain Ive had my bed welded by a very nice
man so I am only laying on a piece of wood now but it is off the floor!! I
have light and its so handy having the shower over the loo holeÖ saves all
that effort cleaning it each day!
I have finally cleaned the kitchen area - in
total I think it took me about 7 hours and its only 4 foot by 4 foot. I
scrubbed every inch of it - I really, really did...Last night I cooked in it
for the first time. Its ludicrous cos you can get a perfectly good dinner with
a bottle of beer for 42p and I spent 1 hour up the market and supermarket
battling and bartering for llb of rice and some veg and a further l hour
cooking it and eating it with a spoon cos there is nothing but chop sticks.
Actually im not sure why I didn't use the chop sticks.
Things continue in
chinese mode here - National Womens day today - received my visit from the
local Workers Party leader and the deputy head and my gift of two chinese
cinema tickets and a duvet - rather unique dont you think. Presentation
tomorrow evaulating the differences between Western and the Orient (their
words) education. Trouble is they - more specifically Sharon the wicked witch
of the East - censors everything she thinks may be slightly controversial.
Must go now - off to the cinema....lots of love Sue xxxxxxxxxx
