This week we are very excited about G’Pas birthday – which he started celebrating last Saturday with present opening including Skyping with Mum & Dad. At school, we are learning about World War 2, so if anyone has any interesting stories, please let me know. We are trying out some recipes to see what it would have been like cooking during the war – vegetable stew tomorrow for dinner! Yesterday, I went to a pumpkin carving party & today we went for one of Dad’s long walks ……. we saw a few interesting sights & at least it was a lovely sunny day.
Saturday night at the movies was “The Queen” – I do recommend it & rated it 4 stars because it was a bit sad. It was all about the troubles Princess Diana caused by dying & the death of a stag.
We have also been watching “Black Books” – Aunty Claire gave 3 series to Mum & Dad about 6 years ago. It is very funny. We have watched 2 series already.
I’m not sure whether to go trick or treating this week – does anyone have a good idea for a costume?
Chinese word of the week: nán guā (pumpkin)
That’s all folks,
