Saturday was the Chinese New Year and our much loved fan Karen took us completely by surprise by sending us a very beautiful New Year card, a timely reminder, because, to be honest, it had almost passed us by, especially as we no longer have a Chinese Takeaway across the road like we had back in The Homeland.
However, taking into consideration Darrell’s new eating regime it probably isn’t a bad thing, though we still pine occasionally for a No. 34, 46, 57 and a portion of chips.
Karen said some very lovely things to us to start the said Chinese New Year off with and Darrell, in particular, was impressed that Karen had written with a real ink pen, immediately deciding that he would use one too as his Chinese New Years Resolution. We have a couple somewhere, still packed away and he is now determined to find them and start writing with “style” …… he is also musing what colour ink would best express his personality! What is he like?
Gong Hei Fat Choy Karen and mahooooooosive THANK YOU for your very kind thoughts.
