Time flies fast, before I noticed June arrived at foot step. Being 2 weeks Easter holiday in April and our annual 2-week holiday in China at the end of May. I had so much going on these 2 months!
Easter NEST Holiday Club
Kids had 2 weeks off over Easter and I was jiggling between working and arranging childcare – thank to the amazing Nest Kids Holiday Club! Kids had fabulous time playing ranges of activities and making new friends. Can’t thank enough for the friendly staff members and the fantastic owner Anna who’s always so welcoming to my kids. I would be a totally stressed working mum without the Nest club!
I also discovered such a good online learning school – Shaw Academy. They offer great courses and my favorite ones are Web Design and Nutrition. Life time membership gives you the benefit of learning anything at your own pace and anytime you want! Below is a list of their courses:
Whilst we stepping into May, the weather has been so kind to us that we’ve had so many sunny weekends! BBQ on the plate so we wouldn’t miss the sunny opportunity! My girl B was so happy to invite her friend to our BBQ! Thinking about her starting high school in September is still quite an unpredictable occurrence to me! Is she ready? Am I ready to see her gaining more independence? So many questions to answer.
Full-time working, chasing after 2 kids, and study for ILM qualification (Institute of Leadership and Management), such madness. But like I said in my previous post, I do enjoy the study and the interaction with all the like-minded people on the course. April and May we are on the subject of Managing Improvement. But the whole unit covers so much, such as TQM – Total Quality Management, Keno Model – Customer satisfaction study model and the famous Six Sigma. If you are interested in these theories, please click here to download Keno Model and Managing Quality presentation file from my free resource.
Whilst the weather has been nice, I also find hundreds of £1 goodies at Hobby Craft. Keeping my kids busy over May half-term was easy! Hope you can find something suited for your kids for the coming summer holiday!
The itinerary is quite tight. Our schedule is really fun-packed and tiring at times, but I have no regret whatsoever!
Xian arrival to meet mum and dad who travelled from their home town Shenyang to meet us there.
Day 2 -3
Xian group tour to Huaqing Palace and Xian Terracotta Museum. The next day a visit to Xian Daming Palace and Dayan Pagoda.
Day 4 -7
Flight to Shenyang which mum and dad’s hometown and the meeting with family members and far relatives are always countless!
Train to Panjin to meeting my childhood school friends who are ever so welcoming every time I visit China. The beautiful Red Marsh tour impressed me so much!
Train back to Shenyang and some more day tour in the city and of course more dinner parties and meeting with old friends.
Train to Beijing and a visit to Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City.
I will be making some China holiday post for the places I have visited with my family. If you are interested in this, please watch this place – or sign up my newsletter here. Until then enjoy the summer weather whatever you are in the world!
