|Our little utility room right when you walk in.|
The tiny washing machine is now in that space.
The water heater is in the big cabinet on the left,
but there's some good storage for some small odds
and ends and a place to put shoes.
After inspecting the flat Sean and I went to "The Old Pack Horse" pub ready to inhale a much needed meal. We were expecting the regular pub food but were a bit confused when we saw the menu only had Thai food on it. It was still decent and we were happy to not be starving anymore. We headed to Sainsbury to buy some food to start stocking our cupboards. Nothing too exciting but it's funny how everything just takes so much longer to do here because we're not used to it. Just finding things in the grocery store took forever. Nothing looks the same and then we want to compare prices and then we have to convert prices. OYYY oy oy!
The rest of the evening was filled with cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. Sean tried to get some work done but couldn't get any internet, not even on his phone. I guess we live in a black hole. Either that or the big brick buildings that are surrounding us are blocking any service we can get.
Our options for dinner that night was either cereal or sandwiches. I still can't cook anything because we have no kitchen supplies so we tried to buy stuff we didn't have to cook. We also had to buy bowls and silverware since those things are also in the boxes we haven't received yet. Not wanting sandwiches or cereal we headed downstairs to the fish-n-chips place and stuffed our double chins with fried food. It was pretty good! But then again, most fried food tastes heavenly.
We tried to get a good night's sleep but that was pretty impossible. The coils in the mattress were poking me so I had to sleep on top of the comforter which meant that I pretty much froze the rest of the night. There was lots of tossing and turning, Sean kept trying to sleep diagonal on the bed since he's wayyyy too long for it, so I had to keep shoving him over. It was anything but comfortable and relaxing. I missed the hotel and made me miss home. :(
