Sorry for dropping off the radar a bit last week. Both Kit and I got sick (he had 2 days off school in his first week). To make up for it, I thought I'd give you the tour of our apartment here: warts and all. As in our air shipment arrived yesterday and we are still trying to find places to put everything.
So there you have it. It is tight (and messy). And I am sick of airconditioning already. We try not to have it on all the time, and to open up windows, but most of the windows are locked, and there are no fans.
The kids have had a good first week of school. Ella has made 3 friends already and they have a nice little group; 2 Americans (one has just come from Shanghai) and a Vietnamese Australian (just come from Vietnam). She seems really happy and is loving that she has both art and drama at school every week. Kit's week was obviously a bit of a bust. He came off the bus on Wednesday feeling really unwell, and while he's fine now after some antibiotics, it means he really only had 2 days of school last week. Remi seems to be loving his school. He's made heaps of friends and went out (and took Oscar) with his friends both Friday and Saturday night.
Oscar is finding it all a bit hard, although he's really got into playing rugby here, and it was good for him to be able to hang out with Rem and his friends. He and I were getting out for the few days before Kit and I got sick. Today I am looking forward to hanging out by the pool for a few hours before starting another busy week.
