New New New…

We are coming to the end of the new school semester ๐Ÿ™‚ And a few things have been new for us… i thought i share them with you.

1) i can’t remember if i have blogged about Tobias returning to Chinese class early this year. We stopped when he was in second year Kindi cos the school he was going to then closed due to lack of students. He didn’t go again until this year when one of his good friends started going. So that was new for early 2014. NOW… we have started with a new Chinese teacher – one who lives much closer, just the next village over and after a rough start, Tobias is enjoying his new Chinese class.

These are his new chinese books...

2) We got a new fridge!! It was dying, on its last legs even before we went for our summer holiday. But it well and truly gave up a couple of weeks after we got back. And after more than a week of surviving with a fridge which only cools to 15 degrees, we got a new one!! *happy*

So white & clean :)

3) New bed/cupboards for Tobias ๐Ÿ™‚ He is really thrilled about this. After 8 years of sleeping in the same bed and having the same rickety cupboard, we finally found a bed/cupboard set at our price range! Walter and his colleague, along with some help from Tobias and myself, put it together – took us a whole Saturday ๐Ÿ˜‰

4) It’s tennis vs squash and he chose squash! Tobias has decided to stop Judo training and try another sport. We went for trial lessons for both tennis and squash. Squash won his heart over. There is no kids class for squash – apparently not a lot of interest with children here. This is the one racket game i did not get to learn in my school days. And because he needs someone to play with –ย soย mummy and son go for squash lessons together.
