Year of the Rat

Wishing all of you born in 1936, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96 or 2008 a Happy Year of the Rat.  People born in a Rat year are said to be logical realists, shrewd, ambitious and inventive, they are usually charming, quick-witted and intelligent.  It is a very social sign, rat people tend to be very talkative and are almost never found sitting quietly on their own.  They have broad interests and strong ability in adapting to the environment and able to react adequately to any changes. 

Apparently a Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity and renewal (great).  It is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a project or make a fresh start (that sounds better). The best way to success is to be patient, let things develop slowly  (i can work on patience) and make the most of every opportunity.

Claire (Rat) and your London correspondents (Rat and Goat) waited in the que at the Royal China restaurant to sample some Dim Sum (Yum Cha) to celebrate Chinese New Year.  Our patience was rewarded with some very tasty dim sum, duck pancakes and a lap around the restaurant by two dragons with accompanying drums.

So much for Chinese Astrology we had a fun day.

good to see mum and bub will be of the same stature, not sure if the term rat is that endearing, neither if I'm glad bub will be of the same stature as mum, but guess i know what I"m up for. Your travels stimulate my taste buds, keep the journals coming...xx to you both kath and knezy (getting fatter every day and it's not a beer belly!!)
