It may have slipped my mind to share this, lordy knows how that happened because I am so damn excited about it! As you read this I’ll be in the air flying to China. SANS CHILDREN AND SPOUSE! Alone.
After almost a decade of no time to myself, here I am sitting on a plane not having to care about anyones welfare except my own. I don’t have to wipe anyone else’s shitty bum until the end of the month. Hot damn. I’ll probably spend the first day in a daze wondering what the hell I can do with myself, how will I know what I can do for myself after not being able to for so long? I have only one suitcase and a small carry on, neither of those bags contain anything resembling a baby product – this feels strange – I feel under prepared. But I’m sure I’ll get used to it 😉
I’ll be in a Facebook and Twitter free zone, thanks to Chinas internet firewall. This can only be a good thing for me.
I’ve tried my best to learn some Mandarin (falling asleep with the language lesson playing) and so far I have thank you and where is the toilet down. That’ll be enough right? Who cares, I don’t have to worry about anyone but me! I can be late, eat whatever is put in front of me and spend an hour longer looking for the hotel than I meant to.
If I return, I shall have lots and lots of pictures to bore you all with. Wish me luck!
