Brrr.... it's cold

It's a very windy, chilly morning. I mean, it's unusual for Singapore to experience such a low temperature morning (25 deg C). I had to hug princess real tight while waiting for the bus, more to keep myself warm (haha) as she had a cardigan on.

Just hope it's not going to be a super wet day today. The sky was extremely dark at 7, but it seems to have cleared off a bit.

Right, on to the birthday party yesterday. It was great fun at XR's party, and there wasn't even a need for games as the kids just found their own fun around the house with toys that were lying around and also with the trampoline and the in-house swing. Although, it was rather nerve-wrecking to see the kids swinging so high and the possibility of them swinging themselves out of the balcony window. 8 levels is a long way to go down. I shudder at the thought.

B & hubs, CC, have a wonderful house. Really lovely, and I'm sure all the adults agreed on that. Big and spacious even though in an apartment building, so although there were many of us, it didn't seem like it. There was a lovely patio and an enormous balcony and the weather was excellent, with a nice wind blowing all the way through. A very open concept apartment. It was great also as the kids got to play outside of class and were able to have fun not within the constraints of the school environment. And also a Happy Birthday to B who shares the same birthdate as her son. Well, many of us didn't know, and I believe most still don't. ;) But it was a success, B, so it was well-worth your effort. Thanks for the lovely goodies.


MIL sent over these - the first is my favourite toy catalogue from Dublin, hehe, I just love browsing through the wide selection of toys. They only have them twice a year - Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter. And she remembered that I like to dabble in a little cross-stitching. Nothing fanciful, not like what the Dutchess does, just small little projects for cards etc. She came across this magazine at the news agent's and sent it over to me. Thanks mum.
