We headed to the Downs tonight for the launch of 500 Chinese Lanterns, organised to celebrate Chinese New Year. It was wet and windy and although we had to abandon our first attempt we managed to get our second up, up and away! Z helped release ours into the night sky and suddenly there were hundreds going up. Quite beautiful and definitely worth missing bedtime for. As Z was getting into bed he whispered "I'll have something really exciting to tell school tomorrow".
