This morning Yuki got word that her Grandfather, 张福林 (zhang fu lin) on her mothers side had passed away. He passed away while at home in 齐齐哈尔 (qi qi ha er), he was 75 years … Continue reading Rest in peace ..
Well, another Christmas has come and gone. This year it was pretty much all about the kids. Yuki and I exchanged a couple of small gifts but all in all we decided not to buy those silly little useless gifts just for the sake of having something to open. We’ll do something later in the year, Yuki wants to go shopping somewhere on the Continent .. likely Amsterdam or Milan or something, so we’ll make it mini holiday and take the kids too.
The kids had loads of toys given to them.. a lot of them came from Nana Shirley, Grandpa Bob “The Builder” and Nana Carol in Canada. They ordered everything online from ELC (Early Learning Centre), a toy shop specializes in toys for babies to sort of 12-14 age group I guess on the top end. Things there are reasonably cheap (for the UK) and cheap and fast shipping. Lisa also got a laptop (used) shipped over from Canada as well, if you haven’t read that you can read it on the old blog. Lisa just loves it.. Thanks Nana Carol and Grandpa Bob “The Builder” 🙂
