This week I have been learning more about Chinese New Year at school – we watched a Chinese orchestra and learnt about the different instruments, made our own dumplings, watched the films Mulan and CJ7 (in Chinese), and learnt to play a Chinese game which is a bit like badminton, but with a shuttlecock that you kick.
Dad has decorated our lane with lanterns, using bamboo that the “lane Granny” was growing last week. They even have a timer. He thinks the neighbours like them very much. He’s really, really pleased with them, so I thought you should see day, dusk and night shots!
not quite the romantic day out Mum was hoping for.
Dad has bought me a new yo yo which is brilliant – I have been practising, while waiting …… in queues, for planes etc
We are now on our way to Lombok, as I have a week off school for the Chinese New Year holiday.
That’s all for this week.
