Perhaps they are all really busy today grin

I'm not though... been a day of getting things done and pampering myself:

Plumber came over and fitted a new shower (as mine had packed up)
Did the recycling
Got my hair cut
Went to 'Sauna World' - (3 Sauna's and a Steam Room).

Hi Nick, I cant believe you are pampering yourself again. Your not long back from Centre Parcs are you?

Hope everyone else has calmed down a bit. I was only working this morning.

We made Chinese New Year crowns. They were fab.

Chinese for lunch

Chinese for tea (plus extra for child that had lunch)

Chinese Happy New Year Cards

Lots of Chinese new year posters

But no-one wanted to dress up in the Chinese outfits or use chopsticks sad

I am exhausted

Center Parcs was 10+ days ago now grin My local council Spa isn't quite the same as Aquasana at Center Parcs alas. But then again it doesn't cost as much either... only £7 on a Monday daytime.

Hmm, want to swop with Nick...

Busy with two little ones and a new mindee today here. Chinese lanterns, food cooked in the wok, and then I made a chinese themed treasure box with stone temple dogs, postcards, photos, a terracotta warrier, chopsticks and a glass globe with the great wall in it - kids loved it! Took lots of photos for Ofsted too.....

Knackered now.

Kung hei fat choi to you all!

TabbyKat, what a wonderful idea. I want one sad. Where did you get your bits from?

Ive only got a fan, dressing up clothes, shoes, bowls, chopsticks etc.

Nick, do you live near Centreparcs then.

coolj Mon 26-Jan-09 18:39:35

Also Nick, what is your job title - are you a nanny or a manny (lol)

nannynick Mon 26-Jan-09 19:02:39

My nearest Center Parcs (Longleat) is about 1.5-2 hours drive away.

Good question... Nanny or Manny? I think I prefer nanny.

Nick, that Center Parcs is lovely - we went there a couple of winters ago -freezing cold cycling round but so pretty. Sadly Longleat was shut for the winter..

Coolj, my parents used to live in China so our house is full of odd knick-knacks I picked up when visiting - never thought they'd come in so handy! No idea what I'll do for the next festival though...!

Sounds like everyone had a great time making fab stuff.
