Oh well, I might as well!

Sleep is eluding me again.. or is it because I'm so highly strung ! Well, whichever it is, I decide I might as well write a bit then.

Saturday was sooooo hectic.. morning was a recital in Shah Alam - Kakak was in My Fair Lady, lah-dee-dah-ing in the Ascot scene.. wonderful ! I always loved playing dress-up - white frilly blouse, skirt with huge ribbons.. large hat with bows and feathers, elbow gloves... sigh... supposed to end at 1:30pm but it overshot to 2:15 instead.

Rushed home, with barely enough time to get ready for the next event - in Cheras ! Baby was to participate in the gymnastics demonstration (Mummy is too tired to send you, darling.. it's the other side of the world ! But Mummeeeee, if I don't go, who will replace me... and I've been practicing very hard..!) So of we go, and to reach there before 3:00pm, which we obviously didn't. 3:30pm it was, and loafing in the South Hall until this pretty little something (girl? fairy? waif? That's Emily, she's a gymnast, in form 4, Mummy... WHAT?! She's... she's... Mum! If I'm supposed to be tiny, what's she ? Errr... miniscule, Kakak ?) came by to get something and told us that the rest were already waiting at the red gazebo.
Off raced Baby to the red gazebo to join the others. Mum ? Oh no, Kakak, we're staying right here. No way am I going out into the 40c sun ! My little Professor agreed.. and recommended we sit comfortably in the canteen.. yum yum! Forgot we didn't have time to grab any lunch.

My Pilot was out in the field, rounding up his old chums, and a hit with the girls, as usual. Every time I looked, there he was chatting with a junior girl. Hmmmm... Anyway, he was giving me regular reports from the war zone, via sms, to keep me updated on the goings-on. When it was Baby's gymnastics session, the 3 of us watched from afar, in the comfortable shade. The Pilot was in the field, but wouldn't have been good with a camera either, cos he couldn't see over the heads of the others there !

And Mum decreed that we were to leave immediately after Baby's done. And the Pilot speaks - Oh Mum, after this, please.. I want to watch my cheerleaders.. wow.. HIS cheerleaders :) ha ha.. well the boys' house did win the cheerleading competition this year, after all.

Rush rush now.. to MVMM.. and managed to get seats for Forbidden Kingdom at 8pm! Pilot - Mum, are you that desperate to watch this? You agreed to take seats, third row from the screen !! Happily enough! And I wish I could go watch this again, this would win hands down against that Crouching Tiger nonsense, any time.
Tired day, satisfying night, and no one went to Taekwando on Sunday morning :) Oh well, they deserve a rest after the grueling hot day before.

Lunch was a lazy affair - Rice, cubed mutton curry, salisbury steaks (actually fancy-named burgers ha ha ha) and some soya-based Thai-styled fried dumplings which tasted great. No veggies - I ran out and forgot to buy a bit. We only have petai, which I don't think would have fitted the menu..

Then the Ustad came by after the heavy downpour. Dinner was supposed to be at Subway, but I got vetoed out so we ended up at Pizza Hut in SP. Had a lovely time at MPH afterwards.. RM230 on books alone - which would be tax-rebate-able anyway so no problems there. They had to chase us to make our payment quickly as they had to close! So home we went then with a bag-full of books! I got my follow-up Sudoku book, I'd finished the earlier one.

Made the boys finish their homework tonight itself. They still don't know that Monday is declared an occasional school holiday for them. They'll just enjoy a good lie-in tomorrow then when Mum doesn't wake them up as usual..
Oh did I mention that I got me new plants ? Love them.. the hanging draping kind... I hope they they won't commit mass suicide like the last batch I had!
