We are slowly settling into the house. After a weekend of unpacking, with Kit and Ella both recovering from camp where they had a wonderful time, it was back into school this week.
The trip to school for Kit and Ella is wonderfully easy now, although both of them still need me to help them out with the buses and where to come out of the right exit at the MRT station for a few days longer. Poor Remi has a longer trip, but he seems to be coping ok. I think he's enjoying the freedom of just being able to get around on his own.
The house is starting to look less half unpacked, although it will be a while until we have all the furniture we need and I still need to borrow a hammer drill to be able to put all my art work up. The walls (and floors) are all concrete. I have to say that my archilles and knees are finding all the hard surfaces such a strain and I come down the stairs in the morning like a cripple.
Anyway, here are some photos I took of the house this morning before I went out. It really feels like the downstairs is an apartment...there's just lots of bedrooms stacked on top.

From the landing outside our bedroom looking down at our neighbour's yard where they have at least 3 dogs all of which bark and yap fairly consistently throughout the day. Funnily enough, it is the little yappy dog that drives me the most nuts...the puppy that is tied up there in the photo I can forgive.
Ok, on to some photos I took today with the trusty iphone while I was out with Oscar. He took me to a mall on Orchard rd that I hadn't been to yet. You start by going up the escalators that are on the outside of the building. Up and Up and UP!
The views are quite stunning and somewhat scary when you look down
