With 6 kids, I need to pause and take stock every half year or so. I would have listed down all my priorities, their routines and rules, and the things I need to teach them like various life skills, but somehow, as the months slip by, things tend to get out of hand. This year has been a really lax year for the kids, as I didn’t have the energy or time to get them all in line, what with a rather debilitating pregnancy, getting used to a new baby, the lack of sleep, and moving house. The kids have a week of school left so I’m grabbing the chance to have a whole morning to myself to sort things out. This is my favorite place in the whole of our tiny island. We’ve been members since I was a child and I still love this place.

As it was a weekday morning, I had the entire place to myself. What bliss. I love the sound of silence, broken only by the quiet lapping of the waves.
A peaceful morning of “me” time in a serene place does wonders to my soul. Being near water calms me. I was hiding under the shade and it was nice and breezy. Feels like my own little paradise. I’m all re-charged to tackle the school holidays and the whole new year to come!
Sane tip: A couple of hours to myself in a tranquil place like this does wonders for my sanity.
Save tip: I didn’t have to spend a cent on travelling and hotel stay in some villa to achieve the same level of peaceful bliss… (oh yes, we did have to pay a hefty sum to be members and we still do have to pay the monthly subscription fee for the hub’s golfing, but that’s another story altogether).
