Ever since I started writing my blog in both languages, my blogger friends and some of my readers seem to have had problems getting my updates. To cut a long story short, I need to start reducing the number of photos I share with you as well as lengths of each post.

Every year around this time, a friend of ours starts sending Christmas presents to their family and friends. And then she and her husband go away on holiday ( vacation ) until after the New Year.

我答應了一位小朋友, 說好了我會在我的部落格上做些聖誕小糕點, 好讓她和媽媽一起照著做。
I've promised a little friend of mine to make some small Christmas cakes on my blog, so she can learn to make them with her mum.

我在英國已住上了三十一年, 身為媽媽的日子也已有二十四年了。我是在我兩個孩子出生後才正式開始學煮食的, 也是自從我大兒子吃的第一口稀粥開始, 日後他們每天的三餐, 都是我親手預備的。
I've been living in the UK for 31 years now, 24 years of which I have been a mother. I started to learn to cook when my children were born, and from the day my eldest son took his first mouthful of solid food, I've been preparing their daily meals for them.

自從開始寫部落格以來, 很幸運認識了很多博友, 從中也有些成為了志同道合的好朋友。
隨和、誠懇和大方的 Meiko (梅綺) 便是其中一位。她是個多才多藝, 聰明快樂的全職主婦。閒時寫網誌只是她多種嗜好之一 。
Ever since I started blogging, I've had the fortune of connecting with other bloggers, making some really good, genuine friends along the way.
Kind, sincere and generous Meiko is one of them. She is a multi-talented, intelligent and blissfully happy full-time house wife. Writing blogs is only one of her many interests.

前幾天我正在計劃著我的聖誕購物單時, 接到一個電話, 是住在附近的羅老太太打來的。她說她的孫女兒安麗放期中假, 目前來探望並住在他們家; 小女孩說想來我家看狗兒 Josh, 羅老太問我可以帶她過來嗎?
As I was writing my Christmas shopping list the other day, I got a phone call from one of my neighbours Mrs R. She said their grand-daughter Annie is visiting and is staying with them now during the half-term; the little girl has asked to come and see our dog Josh, Mrs R. asked if she can bring her over?

I said in the last post that I was going to share the recipes of our three course dinner with you. Last time I wrote about the starter, so today let's have a look at the main course: the《Crustless Vegetable Quiche》.

The autumn season has only just begun but the nature around us is already changing rapidly. Taking a walk in the woods you can see the newly ripened brambles, conkers, rose hips, hawthorns, apples and pine cones, all beautifully hanging from the trees. Then there are the fallen leaves magically carpeting the woodland ground, with wild mushrooms peeping out playing hide and seek everywhere.

When eating out in a nice restaurant, we usually order a three or four course dinner or sometimes up to five or six depending on the menu.
But when entertaining at home for friends, weekend family meals or special gathering, cooking a main course with all the trimmings plus dessert is already quite enough work for a busy hostess.

When the weather gets colder, I love serving a pot of hot and scrumptious smelling stewed food for my family.
Be there the Chinese stew, English casserole, or the Indian curry; you can guarantee that they will go down a treat!

The rain has not stopped for a couple of days. It was cold, wet and miserable.
So when I woke up to a bright and sunny morning the other day, I instantly felt warm and happy inside.

Almost everybody in the UK loves a Sunday roast. A Sunday roast usually consists of one meat with at least two types of vegetables plus gravy. The meat is normally beef, lamb, pork or chicken.

Tea plays such an important role in our house. Doesn’t matter if it’s rain or shine, summer or winter. Whoever walks into the kitchen first thing in the morning will be the one who fills the kettle and brews a pot for the rest of the family, or for the visitors who happened to be staying with us at the time.

我們從倫敦回來，兒子已回曼城。走進他房間替他收拾，便看到他兒時最心愛的三個睡伴：他出生後我們買給他的小藍毛熊，那隻耳朵是 rattle 的小笨象和別人送他，被他弄去了一隻眼晴的黃色小兔熊；排排地坐在椅上。
Our children have both graduated now, and our son has gone back to Manchester.
When we came back from London after our daughter's graduation ceremony, I went to tidy up his bedroom, and saw that three of his favourite soft toys were still on his chair.

Many of my readers, as well as some of my friends said that their everyday life are so hectic, they hardly have time to even cook a simple and nutritional meal for their family.

When our son was little, his dad took him everywhere to go fishing. In the beginning they only went to fish in rivers or lakes, but before long they started going out to sea. Husband suffers from sea sickness most of the time, so he taught our son how to tie the line and attach the bait. This became our son's main task, and he was responsible for unhooking the fish too.

Recently I have been very busy with family life and some other things. To get me through, I remembered one of Einstein's sayings, " Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." Very useful philosophy.

最近聽世界各地的朋友們都說他們的夏天有多熱，動輒都 36 - 38 ˚ C。我記起這麼熱的經驗也只有幾年前去美國佛羅尼達州體會過。那次還差點中暑。所以我知道大家的苦處。
Recently, I've been hearing friends from all different parts of the world saying how hot this summer is where they live, with temperatures as high as 36 - 38 ˚ C. From what I can remember, I've only ever experienced weather that hot when we were in Florida a few years back. That time, I nearly suffered a sun - stroke, so I know what everybody must be going through.

Before I left Hong Kong, between the few years that I finished school and came to study abroad, I worked as an assistant artist; first at the Shaw Brothers (HK) Ltd, then at the Hotel Furama.
With the first job, I watched a lot of films. With the second job, I ate a lot of food.
