This week I was very busy practising for the BISS has got talent show. All went well on the night (Thursday), despite some last minute changes to the running order with people dropping out due to illness, last minute nerves etc etc. We also sold all the BISCAKES biscuits and cakes we had made – to raise money for Tanzania (orphans, schools, goats).
At school I also received a Principles Commendation for getting all As last term. I received a certificate, hand shake from Mr Foyle (headmaster) and had my photo taken. There were 3 of us from my year who got certificates.
We have started studying Shakespeare and we have been talking about quotes. Mum’s favourite quote is from Macbeth – “The Lady doth protest too much”.
Dad couldn’t decide between two quotes both from Romeo and Juliet – “Death lies on her like an untimely frost upon the sweetest flower of all the field” or “Oh happy dagger this is thy sheath …. there rust and let me die”
Please send me your favourite Shakespeare quotes – thanks.
After a long bike ride, which included a stop at a bike shop to buy Mum and Dad bicycle helmets like mine, Saturday night at the movies was a 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet. It was OK, but a more modern version might have been a more enjoyable choice! Rating 3 out of 5.
Dad has been doing very well at sticking to his diet (which includes hummus and lots of green juice) and exercise program (helped by Mum being out at working dinners most nights last week) and Mum’s medicines are doing their job – no need for anyone to worry.
We had lunch today at a really good Japanese restaurant today with another family (including Dad’s Dr) and then went for a walk – but it is very cold in Shanghai at the moment. Brrrrrrrr.
That’s all for this week.
