Can’t believe I arrived in Arabia a week ago already! It has gone by pretty quickly, and I think I am just about used to the different time zone now….
Nothing much has changed since I was here last year in April… same dusty streets and hazy sky. Can’t believe I forgot how much dust there is. I’ve been sneezing ever since I got into the apartment, even though DH did clean it before I came 🙂 First thing we went out and bought was a vacuum cleaner, and yes, I have been using it already. The dust just keeps on coming in!
Next was a trip to Ikea to get some “essentials”, like that little step so that I can reach the cupboards in the kitchen:
This kitchen was not made for short people like me. Other essential Ikea items was a bed for DH and I (very useful), and of course these items here:
Two nice big tables to put my computer and Nina on, I’ll take a pic when they are nicely set up… and putting together than little cream trolley which turned into this:
Do you like my tub set in the background? Just enough to pop my sewing stuff in and some other odds and ends.
So we are getting there bit by bit… DH had the basics here already, but he was waiting for me to get here for the rest. We also bought a small kitchen table to eat at, but haven’t found a lounge set yet. That will have to wait.
Our apartment is on the third floor, so can you imagine lugging all that stuff up the stairs?! Nope, no lift… I told hubby we should move somewhere with a lift, but then we have most of what we need up here now so we might as well stay, lol!
So that is what I have been up to in between trying to get into a good sleep pattern. I am going to head off now to say hi to all of you, and try to catch up on replying to comments…. next time will be a sewing update….
