Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

According to my Chinese astrology, I am going to have ' significant improvement' in my finances this year. I don't know about a significant improvement - I am stuck with trying to bring my money across from France. I have to prove to the French authorities that I am indeed resident in UK and paying UK taxes. Now I have a  French form that I have to present to the British tax office - they are going to love me and sign me for it, I am sure!!! This is for me to ensure I don't get taxed twice apparently - double taxation treaty - and to make sure I pay taxes.


At any rate, my washing machine was finally fixed today. After 3 months! I am not sure how much my landlord is paying Newman Lettings for their 'service'   but I would not advise anyone  to  rent from  them.  My landlord gave the charming Charlotte authorisation over 10 days before  she actually sent in the service agreement to A1 Domestics. If this is customer service, I shudder to think what happens otherwise - how did they win their award for being the Estate Agency Award of the year?

How does one avoid stress related issues?
