Today is my birthday and exactly 2 months and 7 days before we move to China. So, J and I decided to spend the day doing some of our favourite English things.

We woke up nice and early this morning and drove to Castleton in the Peak District. From the centre of the village we did a lovely 6.5 mile walk up to Mam Tor and along the ridge. The sun (mostly) shone, the birds sang and the sheep ignored us. After our walk we stopped at the Nags Head in the village for sausage and mash and a pint of real ale. Bliss.

I am really going to miss England. On the other hand, I am so excited to be going to China so I can find out what my favourite things to do in Wuxi are.
