Watching Premiership Football, great!!! I have worked out how to get Match of The Day onto my Laptop and so can catch on up on all the footie action tonight.
GOD BLESS BIT TORRENT!!!
Of course, as a Liverpool fan, seasons generally start with high expectations and end in tears but “maybe this season might be different”, hahaha. (Ditto for England too!)
I have now started watching a little more of the Olympics too as Team GB is really doing well and i am proud of that. Cycling seems to be our forte. People are banging on about this Phelps lad, but 8 medals in one Olympics? Seems a bit silly to me! Maybe there should be less Swimming events???!
Things are going well at work now and i am finally used to having a permanent job again. I plan to visit more places outside of Shanghai again in the coming weeks, but perhaps will opt for locations that are a little nearer next time. The thought of another six-hour coach trip in the blazing heat really turns my stomach! The cities of Suzhou and Nanjing apparently have much to offer, so i can check these out more easily. They are just an hour or two or the train i think. I know i will not be in Shanghai forever, so must take advantage of this opportunity to see other parts of China while i can. Of course Beijing will be done at some point too. I have found some decent tours that are available for that. Depending on available holiday time, i may do a long weekend or a full week.
Ruby’s birthday next month also needs some planning but she doesn’t have many ideas as yet. Ski-ing and a trip to the zoo are our best ones so far
My trip to Morocco for my sister’s first wedding has now fallen through due to lack of funds, which is a bit sad. To get to Agadir i would’ve had to go via Gatwick. But i can still visit UK for the second one next spring which will be in Norfolk. In the meantime i will try to save for that plus our Thailand hol, which i am starting to gather ideas for.
So, all in all, things are going well at the moment, touch wood, i don’t have too much to grumble about. (Apart from my peeling face and shoulders I explained to others in the office that is part of my UK culture to get burnt!)
