We'll have to wait a few week for the real (Chinese)deal, but here we go with the western New Year. In an attempt to start it positively, I hauled myself down to the gym and made a mental list of stuff to do while pounding the treadmill and listening to some Chinese electronica (the terribly named but pretty decent Supermarket). Boring stuff like tax returns, child benefit and getting a shoe cupboard made. We don't really go in for New Year Resolutions, but I'll make one: master mandarin. Or at least be able to speak and understand a lot more than I do now.
