Had to stay in the little miss’s school yesterday waiting for her because it is their periodical test and pupils were allowed to take the exam for two hours on two subjects. I went to the parent’s area and had a chit-chat with fellow moms who were also waiting. I seldom get to see/talk with other moms because I seldom stay in the school. Other moms asked me, “What’s keeping you busy at home, we seldom see you here?” I simply replied, “Oh, got plenty of things to do at home, routinely tasks that had to be done EVERYDAY.”
When husband and me decided that I stayed home to take care of the kids and our home, had devoted my time with the “career” all by myself. No yayas (babysitter) when the kids were babies, no maids to do the laundry either. It is all up under my sleeve.
There were no regrets. Even, some friends would always asked me why am I not working. Learned early on that in life, there has to be sacrifices and priorities to choose. What matters is, if one is happy of the choice made. I AM!
Mornings is the busiest time of the day. But, in the afternoons, when I would be left alone, I while away time by alternately doing few of these things…
Thingies from simple dresses, pyjamas, pillow cases, and those curtains were my recent project. I enjoyed sewing that pre-blogging life would mean, I am stuck to my Singer

Decorating nook and crannies in the house plus doing DIY’s like this thrifty faux flowers, is what keeps my mood sane. It’s what keeps my worthless days worthwhile
Shopping is fun. Specially, if one is too privileged to have shopping allowance. When I do not have that privilege, I go for discounts and do thrift shopping, too And, do alteration to make them more wearable.
Cooking, too, helps me find solace and happiness in the kitchen. Though, I must admit, I am a trying hard cook

ALL IN A DAY’S WORK! When weariness and tiredness calls for a break, the need to lie down in a chaise or the rattan hammock in the “kubo” is a good break from the monotony. Plus this book…a good company to vividly reflect on life and journey…
There’s so much to do…Apparently, such short a time…
