Rain Rain Rain

It seems like quite a while back since we had so much rainfall in 24 hours.

These are the days when:

Mike and I remember UK, where it's usually cloudy, wet and cold.

I remember Mike and I in Narita town, on a chilly winter day, with some very special friends enjoying authentic Japanese food.

I remember the days when I went to school with soaked shoes walking up Jalan Bukit Nanas to St. John's Institute.

We wake up still feeling lazy... at 9.30am.

I worry about the laundry not getting dry... and the laundry basket piling up.

I wish we have a clothes dryer.

I have second thoughts about going anywhere down town and parking in an underground car park.

We don't get to do our usual walks and bugs hunting.

We sleep under covers without the air-con on.

I dream of hot chocolate and cookies.

We try not to have to eat out with the kids.

The playgrounds must be missing the children.

I love to be in my most favourite spot in the whole wide world - in my hubby's arms.

I would wish I had a 4wd (again) that never fears puddles

I would wish that some of these rain (water) was "shared" with parts of the world that needs it a lot more than we do here

I would wish that our traffic flow would not be so badly affected by even the slightest bit of rain

But above all, I would wish I was in bed and not have to be in the office!

I'm still amazed of how mothers like you can have kids and patience with them! Well I supposed will know when we have kids of our own...

I wish in days like these, I am home having a hot cup of tea with crackers and jam while Sara is snoozing away and Hubby reading his papers...

ann, mummy-yeoh,

Rain is so therapeutic, if traffic and floods are not in the picture, don't you think? :)

our journeys...,
you change and have to change for the kids. They still drive me crazy sometimes, but with them, it's one moment "Go away," and the next "I love you."
So you learn to not take to heart their frustrated cries and try to help them and yourself to be better each day... or each moment sometimes.
