Big news this week – as I drink a very frothy hot chocolate – Grandpa & Micheline’s bike is on the front cover of a magazine:
And Dad got a mention on the BBC World Service Outlook programme for sending in the words of a lullaby written for him by his Grandpa.
As it gets colder in Shanghai, the noises (of phlebm removal) get louder. Gro-o-o-oss. And the outfits get more interesting – a lot of duvet outfits are on show this winter. It was Dads turn to get his picture taken this weekend, thanks to his moose hat which was very popular in Tianzifang & along the bund.
We also received a tree this week – no idea who it is from, or what it is for! A fir tree with gold wrapping around the pot.
– We been joined by bloggers in Russia, Switzerland & Finland
– Geomag arrived from Granny Devon & I have been constructing stuff ever since
– Nighttime bund view from Boca – the lights on the tall buildings on Pudong were brilliant, especially the light show on the Citi bank building – the view was spectacular & I can’t wait to go on a pirate ship on the Huang pu river one day
– Boca’s lamb chops were DELICIOUS!
Fun fact – chinese horoscope (researched by granny fix-it)
