Busy And Bored

School holidays are here and I am even busier than school-going days. When the kids are at home 24/7, I have NO me time.  They sleep late and wake up early too, especially Cass.  I cannot even go jogging early in the morning as Cass wakes up at 7am.  I have to wail till the MIL returns from swimming or the gym before  I get to go  and it would already be around 8ish am, during which time the hot morning sun is out, thus making jogging not favorable anymore.  Then the kids have a really LONG breakfast, chatting and enjoying their food while reading the newspapers.  It is difficult to concentrate in my work when it is too noisy at home, with the kids fighting, bickering and getting mischievous all the time.   As I am typing this post, I have a heap of newly arrived stock next to me, waiting to be checked, packed and sent out.

Our holiday only begins in 2 weeks when we make our ‘yearly pilgrimage’ up North to my parents and then to GMC Penang for Cass’ yearly ultrasound scan and appointment with the surgeon. Hubs has been super busy with his latest project and we hardly see him these days and this will go on until his partner comes back from overseas in 2 weeks. So  the kids and I are pretty bored and all cooped up at home.

How have your school holidays been?
