St Patrick’s Day in HK

Been a long week in HK this week. The week started OK, Monday morning blues aside. On Tuesday though I left work early and went to the Doctors, feeling faint, dizzy and nauseous. He (his name was Dr Buddy – I thought he’d be like Will Ferrell dressed as an Elf…) said it was Gastro-Flu, some bug that’s been going round, and gave me meds. Spending the equivalent of £55 for the Drs consultation and meds renewed my massive appreciation for the NHS. I was off work on Wednesday and Friday because of this (stupidly braved it on Thursday but that didn’t help).

On Wednesday night however, we had our Spring Ball at our campus.  Basically, everyone in Chatteris is encouraged to do a ‘Development Project’ – something unique that helps out the programme in different ways, so Holly and I repeated last year’s Spring Ball and wanted to improve it massively. Months of preparation, paperwork, reservations, sign ups, posters and $3000 on food/drink had gone into it, so no chance I was missing it. We had students from all other IVEs come to our campus too, and had over 60 kids there (a bid ask since it was 5:30-7:30pm). We did Ceilidh Dancing, Venetian Waltz and a Group Dance Off (massive thanks again to Molly, Jack and Mirella for helping lead these, and the 21 CNETs who came along to help us!).

Luckily, I was near enough 100% better by mid-Saturday so got to get out the house a bit. We went round to Molly’s place that evening for a St Patrick’s Day/Emily and Gill’s birthday party. Not much to add apart from it was pretty sweet, had a great time, Sunday was a write-off. Most productive thing was putting some pants on and going to 7/11 for some chocolate. Lazy Sundays are the same in every country.
