COUCH SURFING…

I’ve spent the last two weeks sleeping on my couch because i have no bedding and haven’t had time to do any shopping since arriving in Moscow. With being at work everyday and living on Subway sandwiches, I’m tired and need to GET a duvet and pillows for a bed that I have but can’t sleep on because i don’t know how to get to IKEA or any other shopping mall for that matter. I’m lacking proper sleep. Missing London. 😦 My gosh why is everything so bloody difficult here. arrrrrrggggggggg!!!

MIND THE CABLE PLEASE

While on the quest for searching for a WiFi top up card- for my dismal hotel, M the estate agent (relocation manager) suggested we try MTC or MTS to you and I. It’s basically one of Russia’s biggest telecommunication company. We found a shop near Kieveskaya Metro. This is what I found, of course everyone else was oblivious to the fact that someone might actually trip and break something over the cables. I understand it’s xmas and we all want to see wonderful display of Xmas lights, but really for a reputable company making loads of money this should not be happening.

OKSANA HOTEL, A BUSINESS JOKE

like comfort. There I said it. Ii don’t know anyone who can say they don’t. I like things around me that are comfortable, not necessarily expensive, but comfortable, warm, inviting and clean. Nothing is worse than going on a business trip or holiday and ending up in a depressing, low lit, NO WIFI, no satellite and hard bed roomed hotel.One of those hotel rooms that are just so dull, the ones that suicidal people end up in with a note that says “Dear Sally, I know i was too fat but couldn’t change”.
