Changing Mat, 100 Chinese Children and Another Phone Box

04 Jul

1    Yesterday we bought a new changing mat. To me, this is beautiful as it means we have a baby Granddaughter visiting very soon!

2    When we stayed with my sister in Phoenix last year she gave me a beautiful embroidery which we have just put up in the room in which the Grandchildren sleep. It is very detailed and lovely and shows children playing at some kind of celebration.

Googling the legend, I discovered that “These wall hangings depict not only the life of Chinese children but also the Chinese legend of 100 children. In the wall hanging, there are 99 individual children, but together they are one. The legend of 100 Children brings good luck as 100 is considered a lucky number and represents bounty and abundance.”

I have counted and there are 99 children!

3   Driving through Blackwater today, I discovered another old ‘phone box, this one being used as the Village notice board! For anyone that missed the other delight, you can find it here

Just a short PS…..   Yesterday’s gig, Mike and the Mechanics, was fabulous! I haven’t danced so much in ages, spent the evening with a smile on my face and came home quite euphoric! A beautiful evening and the view above to boot ……..

and afterwards we went to listen to the sea lapping on the shore – utter bliss! How lucky we are.

    You counted them – that makes me laugh, as I would too 🙂 Couldn’t resist to! Fancy that. 99.

    I clicked on this one so intrigued by the heading! 99 Chinese children…. Another interesting post, for sure, MyBeautiful. I’m on a few days off work THANKS to my son’s tonsillitis, so very much enjoying a read as well as write. Oh sigh, a few days to be Mum again….

      100 children? Bit puzzled here! Do you have the same poster? Have you fostered 100 children? 🙂
