During the school holidays, everyday is a busy day for me. Today I took #5 for a classmate’s birthday party. It was so nice to get to know the mums of the boys he plays with in school. This is the first time I am at a gathering where there are no girls. The birthday boy comes from a family of 4 boys! Must be a handful, but I must say they are very well behaved.
|Happy Birthday, Nicholas!|
In the evening, it was the 4 girls’ turn and we went to watch the Wild Rice production of Jack & the Bean-Sprout! We were slightly disappointed though. We had thoroughly enjoyed the previous years’ productions and we laughed till we were in stitches. But we felt that this show was not tight enough.
|Ethel Yap surprised me with her vocals… and er her alien outfit. Well done!|
Nevertheless, it was a nice change to be out with the girls, instead of putting Kate to bed. All thanks to my sister-in-law for getting us the tickets!
Sane tip: It’s good to get out at night once in a while and do adult things. There was a time when I did not leave the house past 8pm for a few years! And when I finally did, I was marvelling at the night sky. Funny how deprivation makes you marvel at things you used to take for granted.
Save tip: Get a really nice SIL! *wink*
