Today I’m on at 9am again. I have my trusty alarm clock but I still get in at 9.01am. It’s impossible to be on time under this much pressure! I now owe £5.50 in fines. I’m observing the other guy today who teaches slightly differently and so gives me a bit more confidence about the whole thing.
After work we head for something to eat – still no luck with the dumplings - and I continue my search for ‘Flash’ multi-purpose wipes afterwards. Such wipes do not appear to exist but I forgot to mention I had been cleaning my flat with baby wipes up until now. When looking at the cleaning products it dawns on me that the landlord was stopping by at 6pm to fix the washer/dryer (broken pipe) and the TV.
After all this commotion and 5 days in China without breakfast and dumplings, it seemed right to join the boys for a couple of beers. At this point it’s worth me saying their names are ‘Rich’ and Marc.
