First week of Jan

I love this picture that my sister took of Saitaomei! Lately my mother has been taking daily evening walks with the kids. They love it with Saitaoha exclaiming ‘Mummy I love walking!’ Obviously a stop at the playground makes walks even more attractive. Ah ma said they had difficulty getting the kids to go home after their walk today.

Hehe this girl was showing me her mermaid doll because she’s going to see a mermaid show with her yee yee tomorrow. She’s very lucky because yee yee totally dotes on her and is always bringing her out for fun activities.

I’ve been catching the train to and fro from work with my sister. That’s the best part of school holidays, having my sister for company during these train rides. We love trading gossip and chatting away. Somehow I found myself suddenly making chicken rice for dinner, so simple and satisfying. I should do this more often especially since the family all love chicken rice.

Returning to work is aggravating my leg pain, R said he noticed more ‘ows’ coming from me this week. Sigh I just hope it doesn’t mean my pain is coming back in full force, I can’t go through those dark days again πŸ™πŸ».

We met a dear friend for dimsum today. I’m so happy for him because he seems happy in Sydney! It was a lovely way to end the first week back at work. Now if only my leg would stop hurting, I would know for sure that 2019 is my year of recovery.

First day of 2019

Hehehe. The snow app is so cute.

The first day of 2019 was nice. We all slept in except R who started painting at 5.30am! He’s really into DIY nowadays and it amassing a huge collection of tools. I actually don’t mind because it’s handy to have someone who’s handy haha. I also think it’s sweet that he’s building and designing his kids’ playroom from scratch. It’s only semi completed but the kids already love it.

After a six week hiatus, I’m finally returning to work tomorrow. It feels surreal after being away for so long, I’m not looking forward to it but I’m also not dreading it? I know I will miss hanging out with my parents and the kids, but I hope this year I can have a steady work schedule that will balance work/family appropriately.

I’m also hoping by starting Saitaomei in daycare and Saitaoha in school this year, my parents will have more time/rest to themselves. A lot of my stress last year stemmed from worrying about my parents being too tired. Hopefully this year I can alleviate some of that worry by lightening their load. I must admit that I hate the idea of Saitaomei going to daycare though 😭.

The cousins having a great time playing together. Saitaoha gets upset when the older kids leave her out of games because she’s too small to be on the same wavelength as them. Wait for your sister to grow up so she can play with you ok!

Saitaomei was just happily walking around the house holding her wooden icecream.

Even waving at my brother in law, so cute.

I enjoyed our steamboat dinner, I like bola bolas as my sister calls them. We’ve had lots of family gatherings this festive season, I’m so glad I was well enough to attend and participate.

Who knows what the rest of the year will be like? I have some set goals for myself, almost all of them are to do with my health and well-being. I really hope I can achieve them!
