Monday the 30th of December 2013
I had managed to finish work, plan tomorrows lessons, visit the supermarket, take a long shower, put on my pyjamas, eat a tube of pizza flavoured Pringles and generally relax in my apartment, all before 21:00PM. This is the first time since moving to Taiwan that I’ve been ‘ready for bed’ early, in the UK, this is probably my usual time to wind down. Although, it’s 13:36PM in the UK at the moment, it’s probably taken my body this long to figure out a regular sleeping pattern. I am a creature of habit, I like routines and I like feeling organised. So, tonight, I feel calm enough to write a blog post which isn’t a mass collection of everything I’ve been up to over an extended period of time.
I bought a new water bottle today; I decided that the one I purchased when I first arrived was (and still is) absolutely perfect for milk. Every time I run out of milk in the fridge, I make my own using powdered milk (KLIM) and the refreshing ice water from the cooler on my floor. Usually, to make cups of tea or noodles etc., I use the water from the tap in my bathroom. I’m boiling it so it’s perfectly drinkable. I bought various other things too but the second water bottle was definitely a good move. I like that most water bottles here also double as measuring jugs, I’ve discovered a world of multifunctional products since moving here. Did you know you can actually boil an egg in a kettle?
