This week at school we finished our world war 2 project with a show case on Friday when we dressed up – I was Winston Churchill – and parents had the chance to see our work. Mum did quite well on our quiz & won ration biscuits.
There have been a few kitchen upgrades this week – a new draining board/chopping board made by Francis & a new work surface made out of stone. I have been hard at work preparing/cleaning them!
Saturday night at the movies was “The Lone Ranger” with Jonny Depp – my rating is 3/5. Dad gives it 3.5. And Mum gave it 2.
Today we went to the best rated Christmas market in Shanghai – which was better than the last one we went to (last year) – where I had pizza. Not a very Chistmassy pizza. There was a lot of hot chocolate & sausages being sold & we did get something for the box of presents being sent back to the UK.
Strange Sights and Funny Happenings:
We saw a lady chopping a ‘small’ quantity of garlic outside her restaurant, Dad is picking up tips perhaps
and this is not the rubbish outside another restaurant, but a delivery of fresh lamb. The same place we photographed cabbages & potatoes a few weeks ago
Not for Granny’s to read – please look away – the air pollution has been “Hazardous” this week & so we could not play outside at all this week & the christmas fair was postponed. It does seem a bit better now.
That’s all for this week!
PS Mum is feeling a bit poorly with a cold – does anyone know any good jokes or tips to cheer her up? PRIZE for the best joke/tip!
