Going home tomorrow

I’m going to be really sad to leave England tomorrow. I’ve had such a good time here, I have really enjoyed the intensive training schedule, and trying lots of new food, and going out for walks in the freezing cold weather.

On the other hand, I’m excited to go back home. I wonder if I’ll remember everything. I can see por por and gung gung, my nice uncles, auntie Jo, and all my other friends too. I’m especially looking forward to seeing por por. In fact I’m so excited, I don’t know if I’ll be able to sleep on the journey home. Perhaps I’ll try to stay awake for the whole flight.

My first Christmas

On my first Christmas, I didn’t manage to see Santa coming. But that’s because I was Santa!
Christmas day in the UK

This was my first present - I love the shiny paper:

I got so many presents. I got two balls, some cups, a lovely red bib, some toys to play with, and too many other nice things to list.

I have had a bit of a cold for the last few days, but last night I slept very well, and I’m feeling a bit better this morning. I’m looking forward to my roast dinner a bit later on. I want to eat some of daddy’s lovely food, but he says I have to eat the reconstituted powder version. It doesn’t sound as nice.

Intensive training

I’m really enjoying my stay in the UK, and I’ve learnt a lot. Dad’s family have taken a teamwork approach to my intensive training.

Granddad has been giving me lots of intensive physical training, to help me strengthen my neck and upper body muscles especially. He likes to push me onto my stomach, and then encourage me to look up. I’m getting quite good:

Auntie Eleanor has been focusing on my abdominal muscles and legs. She has been teaching me to stand up, supporting my own weight, and also she helps me to sit up, although I can’t do it for very long:

Granny has been training me to drink from a cup, like a grown up. I like it! Here I am guzzling down some nice apple juice. And I don’t need any help holding the cup!

Santa’s little helper

Hi Santa. I’m available if you need any help delivering presents this Christmas! I’m very keen to learn to fly, and my nose goes red just like Rudolph when it’s cold outside.

Lots of visitors

Today I met lots of new people. All day, different people came to say hello and to play with me, at granny and granddad’s house. Now I’m worn out!

Settled in

I am now quite enjoying myself althought I still feel quite cold. For the last few days I have had a nice long sleep at night, until 7am or 8am.

I have been getting some more exciting things to eat. A few days ago I had some carrot, and today I had a nice bit of banana. I also tried apple juice, and of course I’m eating more of my special rice every day.

There are some new photos of me, including this one with my flying hat on:

New surroundings

I don’t know quite what’s happened, but there have been a lot of changes. Yesterday I spent a long time in the aeroplane; I slept for the first half of the flight, but then I woke up ready for playtime, and complained a bit when mum and dad didn’t pick me up and play with me.

Everything here is different, and I’m taking a bit of time to adjust. This morning I woke up at 4am (lunchtime in Hong Kong), thinking that I had done well to stay in bed so late But nobody wanted to play with me. I’ll try to stay asleep later, tomorrow morning.

More updates and photos later this week. It’s very cold here.
