Yes, today's been a fun day - some partying of our own to celebrate the Chinese new year - we even got new outfits from Beijing for the event (bar Mr H who just doesn't like dressing up). The girls were singing and dancing to Chinese new year songs and then did the traditional greeting to papers to get some red envelopes with money inside them.
We've also watched our first ever horse racing from the balcony of our hotel, the Lingfield Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club in the heart of Surrey countryside, as well as enjoyed swimming, and the lovely spa with its hot tub, steam room with therapy lights and music, the more traditional sauna and the ice fountain. The life in countryside certainly is more relaxing and it feels good to off the fast lane sometimes. Let's hope that the year of snake will be meaningful and prosperous for everyone!
