Away from all that northern sunshine and beautiful tomatoes I'm craving stodge again. Shepherd's pie, pasta and lots of bread. Not to mention mashed potatoes. Thankfully I have help in the kitchen.

After our swim we caught a taxi into town for a look-see which involved shopping and eating, because we hadn't done nearly enough of that on our trip. Jack when faced with a huge choice of foods like sushi, yakitori, hainan chicken rice, mee goreng and more chose fish and chips (they were actually very good) and at least he didn't want pizza..
We found some amazing toy shops and checked out the bookshop Kinokuniya.
We got back to the Crowne, packed and re-entered Changi airport where we once more visited the butterflies and used the free wi-fi while we waited.
|Jack loves these feedback screens at Changi Airport. He usually said everything was excellent.|
Jack did this list on the way to Italy. I think we covered it all, though maybe not in quite that order.

I was also delighted to find this Dr Seuss book which sounded positively delicious when translated.
In the end we purchased this one for Sam and he was very pleased and that's before we've replaced the batteries and can find out what noises it makes. I wonder...

Today we leave Italy for Singapore, which is a happy/sad moment. Soon we will get to see Sam, though I'm expecting the cold shoulder. Maybe the Italian kid's book on poo will win him over. By all accounts he's been having the most dreadful time with his grandparents and cousin Scarlett (not).
Yesterday we went on a sightseeing bus and saw many things but most importantly the colosseum. Jack had been looking forward to this for the whole trip. As S has left with his computer (rude!) I will upload photos soon. We had a great last day, in spite of not being able to play one last game of foosball. Now onto Singapore (if I can wake Jack).
