A Window into Life in the Suburbs

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Madame Chauffeur

This past week I earned my chauffeur and outdoor Mummy badges the hard way. Pity there's no organization that hands these out.
When these holidays are over, I will heave a loud sigh of relief and know that I will have earned some extra "me" time when the 10 year goes back to school.
A quiet holiday after all that would be ideal but methinks that'll fall under the category of "fantasy" at this stage.

Let me see... there was Kids Club on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Dreamworld on Monday and Wednesday. Shopping on Thursday and Kung-Fu Panda on Thursday night. Park visit on Friday and swimming on Friday. Today it was another 30 minute drop-off to Nana's.
But who's counting, right?...

I've been rewarding myself each evening with a nice cup of ginger drink and my favourite scenes from "Three Kingdoms", the latest tv adaptation of the Chinese classic The Romance of the Three Kingdoms. No doubt, it's slow going but am loving the performances.
