Well after our terrible CNY restaurant dinner last Wednesday, Jenny was very unhappy. To feel better, she's been cooking up a storm of great Chinese dishes. On Saturday, we met up with Joe, Kayoko and friends in London and had a truly proper CNY dinner. Much, much better. Even had a lion dance right at our table which the kids will surely remember well (K* got "eaten" by it). All the noise made it hard to talk much though!
CNY brings a flurry of angpows for the kids so we've finally decided it was time to open up a bank account for each of them. It's at a very local bank - Mom & Dad's Jam Jar Bank Of England and I'm the Branch Manager. Our IT system consists of one account book. To encourage, R* to save money (and not immediately withdraw everything to buy a Gameboy), I'm offering a generous monthly interest rate. This seems to have got her quite excited and might keep the Gameboy at bay for a little while.
