I am absolutely shattered, I have no idea what day or time it is, I'm sleeping when I'm tired and eating when I'm hungry.
Peter and I are in Hong Kong for the Rugby 7's. I won a competition. I received notification via a telephone call, a week later and 10 hours before we flew I received the official email from a PR company with flight, hotel, ticket and Limo details and that was it. I have no idea who is actually paying for this trip, but we're having a great time.
Sunday - coffee with friends in newport and a visit to my see my Aunt, before returning to the flat to cook a Sunday roast for me and the teen and chill out for the evening.
Monday - I met most of the new neighbours, popped to the coffee shop, dry cleaners, supermarket, local council office, post office and walked up to see the castle. The teen spent the evening explaining the difference between vlogging and you tubing.
Tuesday - off to Gloucester with the teen to visit Stephanie, we did some shopping first, then spent a couple of hours with her in her own home. We both struggled last week to take her out. The evening was spent with friends for dinner.
Wednesday - I started my journey back to Dubai, leaving South Wales at 10am, returning car hire and a direct flight with Emirates. With the time difference I was back in Dubai at 2am, straight to bed.

Thursday - I woke at 7am and after Peter went to work I went back to bed at 9am till 12pm. I washed Bob, drove him over to Jelly's where he's staying, took the cat to the vets where she is staying, went to the bank, unpacked and repacked and washed the pet bedding. I was back at the airport with Peter by 7pm, we had dinner and then caught our flight to Hong Kong at 11pm.

Friday - We arrived in Hong Kong at 9.30am, having lost 4 hours of time, collected tickets for the Rugby 7's, driven to the hotel in a Limo and opted to wait till the official check in time to have a bath in the room as well as a shower, we explored the local area. In the evening we caught the MTR to Causeway Bay and followed the crowd to the 7's, watching the Women's final, opening ceremony and the first set of matches.
Saturday - We booked a tour to explore the island. We visited Man Mo Temple, rode the 125 year old tram to Victoria Peak, visited Sky Terrace, Aberdeen Fishing Village, had lunch at Jumbo Restaurant the World's Largest Floating Restaurant, Stanley Market and a visit to a jewellery factory. In the evening we explored Hollywood Road bars and restaurants.
