Response: Hello to you all!
Glad you are enjoying the website. Yes, Si did go to Lodge Farm - were you his teacher too?
You'll be pleased to know that Beijing's winter is on its way so it'll be cold and grey here too soon.

Response: Italian women eh? Let's hope she doesn't have a Stevenage postcode... Hope you had fun with Wai. Hurry up and get your ass over here! Em and Si x
Response: Hi Jimmy,
Being home is really good but we're leaving again soon. It was great to see all our family and friends but we've been very busy as there are so many people to see. Very excited about going to Beijing now as it's a fantastic city. I am a little bit nervous about teaching in the University and so is Emma.
I hope your final year at school goes well and you get good enough grades to get into universtiy in Hong Kong. There are lots of good newspapers that you can read on the internet that will help improve your knowledge of world events. Unfortunately the Chinese Government blocks the BBC.co.uk website but you should be able to visit www.guardian.co.uk which is an excellent British newspaper.
Take care Jimmy and keep in touch,
Response: Ha ha - we read this when we were sat in Si's room in Stevenage waiting to come and surprise you.....

Response: Cheers Dude,
I'll try and log-on to the old MSN a bit more often but with the time delay I'm normally tucked up in bed by the time most of you finish work. Although that probably doesn't matter for those of you lucky enough to have your own laptop.
