Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Friends and family are asking where and what the wee one is doing today so I thought I would post daily updates on his adventure to my CF friends.
Today he is going on a guided visit to The Great Wall and then onto Summer Palace and finally to the Wangfujing Night Market where all pupils have been instructed to check with their tour guide before eating or buying anything.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

My niece is doing her Duke of Edinburgh (Bronze) Award scheme today/tomorrow.

I said she should get a SheWee, but she wouldn't have none of it.

As she has Scoliosis, she is limited to what she can carry and any extra stuff she should normally carry will go into the back of the support car.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Just starting our 2nd week in north Devon. Although the weather has been a bit crap it seems that we have missed the heaviest of the rain.

We're staying @ Eastacott Barton ( http://www.eastacottbarton.co.uk/ ) which is by far the best place we have ever stayed in the UK. Had family with us for the first week, which was great & now the 2nd week will be a much more chilled & slower paced.

Looks amazing enjoy your chill week

Today's agenda for the wee one is Guided visit to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City.

High-speed train to Jinan— Capital of Shandong Province: 500km 1h 35 min journey. Overnight at Shungeng. The school has posted some pictures of them and seeing my son experiencing these sights has been truly worth the sacrifice of our family holiday. A memory & experience that will last a lifetime.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Looks like a nice place al.

We were up in the local beer garden today when doting parents and evil brat came out who promptly started wreaking things. Anyway brat is summoned in to get dinner which he places on the outside table and despite being told by doting parent to sit and eat decides to go back inside anyway. We did say to him the seagulls would come and get it but he went inside.

And the seagulls did come and devour the lot. Brat comes out and asks where his food has gone. We took great joy in saying that the seagulls had had it.

Karma is a wonderful thing.

Day 5 already !! The trip organisers certainly seem to be packing in sightseeing. Wee weenie will be knackered by the time he gets on the plane home.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

It's quite a slow day for the wee one today to which I'm sure the kids and teacher's will be grateful for. Today their adventure consists of Visit Zhucheng #1 High School. Drive to Tai’an city. I think they needed a chill out day tbh as when I'm on the school blog/checking emails the kids seem to be looking very tired now.

Not long till Thursday when my eldest is home and we have nearly finished his room I have changed his colour theme from Electric Blue walls to Magnolia, so now instead of all blue, it is now cream, black & grey bedding, cream & black rug which looks far better IMO, I really hated the electric blue colour theme.

Nice to get the room decorated when he was away, Is it a surprise for him,or did he know it was being done?, Hope he likes it,
