Shopping and chores galore

Day two and we still movin like machines through the paces of getting settled. There are certain things one can’t do without. We rented a driver and can and hit Carre Four like nobodies business. From pillows to coffee and softener to wine glasses and stormed that place with four trollers in three hours!
Got dropped just outside our ‘lane’ which doesn’t allow cars (lovely for peace and quiet, nightmare for carrying shopping and growing biceps)

Fabulous second dinner at a gorgeous organic healthy meal restaurant in a beautiful restaurant lined alley filled with plants, pubs, wine bars and delis selling imported heavenly bits and bobs (I have peanut butter, soy sauce, pesto and a Hello Mag in my handbag)

Exhausted but at least tonight we have real pillows, a duvet and understanding of how the aircon works.

Arrival

First shots of life in shanghai. Got earlier flight to Shanghai from Guangzhou so arrived at noon at our new home. Unloaded, found the make up and wash bag ( most important) and walked to out local street for win and noodles. Talk about shell shocked

Buying everything today, including pillows (slept on towels) etc woke up to coffee and hot croissant that Robbie picked up on his walk with Fin this morning. Fin surprisingly chilled 🙂
