Feeling bleh!

As I was packing the Teacher's Day gifts, I felt a tinge of sadness. It's probably going to be the last gifts I'm giving to the teachers in their school; my school. Is my fate with this school going to end next year? I know I am an IJ girl, always an IJ girl. Does che-che feel the same way as I do? Or is she too young to feel a sense of identity; a sense of pride? Six years, well at least longer than the time mei-mei is going to spend in the school - a mere 2+ years. 

I think I'm always the sentimental, 'can't have separation' person. Che-che had some good teachers who had taught her, she has two favourite teachers. One was her FT for 3 years, a very nice teacher. I'm not sure if she remembers all her students' parents coz' she taught a lot of girls, but she recognizes me. Maybe coz' my girl was always in Lala-Land in her class so she remembers her well. But why me? I don't think it's because of my presence in the school as a PV right? After all I've toned down in volunteering ever since I didn't have any helper. But I do see her in PP sometimes. 
The other teacher whom che-che favours is her Chinese teacher. Her teacher who went extra mile in helping her. 

Mei-mei likes her P1 FT too! Though her time is going to be short in the school, I'm sure she has many wonderful memories of the school. For eg. daring enough to approach the VP to borrow money. *slap my own head*

I had been volunteering on Teacher's Day (for the past 4 years. I didn't volunteer for 1 year when KZ just left and I had no one to help me pick the little one from Kindy) , a day when the teachers come to school late, where the classes are taken care by the PVs. This year would be my last.

Teacher's Day Appreciation Lunch - probably the last one for me too. 

I'm going to miss the school ; the teachers ; the blue pinafore. Oh yes, I remembered on her first day of school I didn't sing our National Anthem but sang the School Song. ?!?!?!?

Busy Busy

Hubby left on 27th July and that makes me being on solo for 15 days. Tiring! A few days back I had this sharp pain on my head, so bad that I wanted to just do nothing but I couldn't...... as PSLE Oral was in less than a week. SCARY!!  In the end, I had to sacrifice Aricia's ballet and Berries on Friday so that I can rest at home. I napped for 30 mins when che-che was doing her work (good thing we got back home early as it was National Day Celebration in school) and the next nap of 1hr was when che-che had her tuition. Poor mei-mei grumbling away.

Although I'm used to this solo act, whether hubby's in Singapore or not, but I have no one to taichi to now. Usually on Fridays, he'd help me pick mei-mei up from Berries while I would have finished some chores. But now, I'm rushing through with no break in between. 

I guess I was so busy was also partially because I was preparing for Teacher's Day gifts, mei-mei's birthday goodie bags, and some of che-che's Children's Day gifts. All these are probably 自找麻烦 but I'm just so used to preparing stuffs for che-che's classmates during Children's Day, this would be the last gift from me. 
I had been sleeping at 2-3am, waking up at 5+ - 不头痛才怪!But I'm glad I've finished the Teacher's Day gifts and mei-mei's goodie bags within 10 labourious days.The Children's Day gifts preparation - just left with a little more thing to do and that's it. But that is like in 2 months time?? Hahaha! 
Perhaps wondering why the rush? Cause I needed to do more decluttering around the house, I can only do so when my mind is off from all those things. 

I haven't had proper sleep too, not when I have two horrendous SLEEPERS sleeping with me. After two nights, I gave up and asked one girl to sleep on the floor. Starting with the ------ Smallest size but occupy- so-much-space girl!! She likes to curl her body (foetal position) so either way she always makes me and hubby sleepless. And this girl likes to KICK and SLAP too! 不要看她小小只,她踢的时候很痛,她打的一把掌也很痛。Then when che-che sleeps with me, that King Kong girl roll to my side, I push her back she rolls back to me. 
Hmm..... I think the best solution would be me sleeping on the floor instead. I'll let them kick and punch and squash each other.
