Now We’re Getting Somewhere

23 Jul


It makes me wary to say it but things are starting to fall into place over here. Neil has finally been given a shiny, new hire care for the duration of our time in Abu Dhabi and it doesn’t have too many dents in it. The apartment is now ours and, oh yes, Neil has been paid. Hallelujah!

Of course, it hasn’t all been plain sailing but, now we can get about easier and the furniture has started to arrive, it really feels like we can settle in. We have kitchen white goods along with somewhere to sleep and eat so the plan is to move in on Friday. All the endless bits and bobs will be bought as we go along although pillows and a quilt are a bit of a priority. Something other than paper plates would be nice, too. Curtains will have to wait – we are trusting no one can see in!

We’re fairly confident on that score with the apartment being more than halfway up a 74 floor tower block (my ears pop at around floor 25). It’s pretty impressive and not at all what we’re used to! Hopefully, though, it should soon start feeling like home. Ah, but as the saying goes “Home is where the internet connects automatically”. That could be a while coming.

      Thanks Zareen – it’s the wonderful city of Abu Dhabi.
