For all those of you who are wondering what happened to the decluttering and organizing of the Craft Studio, well good news, we are getting there. After slogging and slogging endlessly, I am almost tempted to just pack off a couple of cartons with all the misc stuff ,, they are the ones that I have problems with .. I mean where do you place some advertising door hangers which you THINK you will use one day .. or maybe a some glycerin or the scores of color pencils that keep popping up from where all not ! But we ARE getting there. Sam has been so patient infact this was my birthday gift that I had asked of him – P A T I E N C E .
My closest friend Min has just delivered a baby boy, this little one comes after 3 little girls .. I was pleasently surprised for her, coz well close as she is to me, she never mentioned the pregnancy to me ! But what matters is that she and her baby are in good health. With 3 boys in the house, there are certain times virtually every day that I find myself spilliting my hair .. I wonder what she is going to do ! She has really been brave venturing into unknown territory ! Women are not natural mothers .. We become Mothers .. it takes time .. AND one thing we need the most is “patience” Rest tomorrow …
Phew, what a good feeling it is now that I have managed to make “some” walking space in the Craft Studio ( CS ). So I started with assisning drawers for all the packaging materials like : carry bags, cellophane sleeves, envelopes, lace and fabric decorated bags. Have placed all the party decoration and christmas decoration in the large IKEA cartons and placed them behind the plastic drawers. I am a major Ikea fan so almost all my home is decorated with Ikea stuff. Placed all the large rubberstamps in the new white draws. Wow its been alot and yet the room looks like a crash site ! Later perhaps tomorrow.
The temperature has been soaring to 51 degrees Celcius. There have been more 50 heat stroke cases. I really pity the poor labours who are so involved in making such lovely homes and roads for us in this furnance like weather. The water cooler we placed out of the house, now empties every single day. Sam has been refilling it virtually everyday. But there’s a whole lot of blessing we gather when scores of people come and get cold water in such monstrous temperatures.
I am in a delimma, whether I should take the kids to Abu Dhabi Fun City or stay home and continue my CS adventure ?? Poor boys, they have been happily taking the back seat over the past 3 weeks, with their new gift, playstation 2 and the new computer with the graphic card and games that they cant have enough off ! Sam is goinna fret and fume when we get this months electric bill !!
This is a picture of my birthday this year at my sister’s house.
