This weekend is just absolute horrible. After our big fight, I was down with a bad migraine. It got worse and by Sunday morning, I was in a bed ridden mode.
Panadol extra no longer able to ease my pain. Last night, after searching in my medical box, I finally found a slab of Nurofen. Unfortunately that still didn't help.
My sister buzzed me yesterday asking for permission to bring my son out for lunch. Well... a pep talk.
I could hardly open my eyes when they came back from lunch. After hearing our sides of the stories (helper's, daughter's and mine), I guess my sister finally know the hell I am living in.
Strangely, after a good cry, my pain lifted. I was able to function and even baked in the evening! I am so glad that they stayed for dinner as at least I get some happy time.
Since my sister was craving for scones and my pain is gone, I decided to bake the recipe that I shared in a magazine early this year.
As I wanted to get this done quickly, I didn't bother to measure out the height of the dough as well as giving it a nice egg wash. So pardon the "short" and dull scones.
Since my sister only eaten sweet scones but never a savoury, I am happy that she liked my Bacon and Cheese Scones.
Been eyeing on Chocolate Bottom Banana Slice from Hearty Bakes for a few weeks and since my pain eased, I quickly follow through my motion and done a batch.
My niece liked it very much and even asked for second helpings.
As for the rest of the week, the only peace I think I can get out of it all is to be the one giving and giving, since he can't take no as an answer.
The only solace I can get right now is to stay away, but then I am being labelled as a mom who doesn't care and love. So seriously, I no longer know what to do.
Hubby asked me to take it easy but living under the same room with hostility in the air is really no easy job.
Just a moment ago, he was talking into the air, asking for his weekly allowance. I choose to ignore, since after all, he is not talking to me.
Am I doing it right? haiz. At 14 already so rude to his mom, I can't imagine him earning his own money. I guess I will have to live in hell by then.
Better save up my own money so that I can decide on my own retirement villa.
