Last year was a… difficult year for me. It was year of the dragon, by the way, but this year is the horse and I grew up riding horses and I feel nothing but love for them, so I am pretty sure this will be a much better year for me. It’s very scientific.
I have new friends from China staying with me at the moment and tonight for Chinese New Year they cooked a (mostly) vegetarian banquet for us and it was magical.
Oh, my garden looks quite stately in this photo, like I might have extensive grounds or something.
(And a quick reminder to myself when I am next re-reading my blog, in case I am feeling uninspired by my parenting achievements: recall that both kids, ages 4 and 8, politely tried everything served to them and mostly loved it, including the very spicy tofu).
How it all came together…
Hung upside down so the luck doesn’t fall out.
