Long overdue

When I am on the internet, it is generally when I am alone or if my kids are already back from school. It will be in between coaching them or attending to their needs by then. I am usually like a busy bee, doing many things at one time.

Thus, I often overlooked and something just doing a brief read on blogs and hoping that I can come back and do my commenting.

I know some of you would prefer to be a silent reader. As a blogger, though not important but leaving a comment does motivate. As least, it doesn't feel so empty even though you know that the traffic to your blog is not that bad. Psychological mind? Perhaps.

Anyway, when Noms I Must forwarded me an award on 17 March 2011, I know I must be on my multi tasking mode and thus didn't act to that right away.

Bad bad me .... but this is how I am. Doing too many things and remembering as much but the brain just at times couldn't cope. Yes, that is how two sisters by now understood me and often sent me reminders to follow up on certain stuff that I promised them. My second sister, at times, act like my secretary. hahaha

With the new week just started, and as I went through my brain cell to see what I need to follow up, I suddenly remembered Noms I Must’s blog post. She must be wondering how thoughtless I am.

So here I am getting my butt moving...

Thanks Noms I Must for passing on this award to me. It sure been a long time since I last received one and it indeed brings sweet feeling as you know you are not the forgotten lots.


Here are the rules to abide in order to accept this award and they are:

1. Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered blogs
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it.

So here's the randomness:

1. These days, I like impromptu plan especially fixing a date with girl friends when schedule permits.

2. With 2 solo trips done, I realised that I truly enjoyed travelling with my fellow mommy gang for a short getaway. Not that I don’t love my family but the time alone is really good for my soul.

3. Decided to sign up for tennis lesson together with my kids and already done one lesson. A great way to bond with my kids as we have a common topic now to chat about.

4. I seriously need to be more focus in my faith.

5. I started a habit of nibbling on chocolate but oh gosh, this is so bad especially just before bedtime.

7. I gets very pissed and hurt when judgement is made that stay home mom knows nothings about the world despite proven many times that I ain't stupid.

8. Am planning to do something major to my well being this June. Let's hope I won't chicken out.

It was tough to forward this to more bloggers as many of you already had been awarded. (sorry my fellow regular bloggers- I didn't forget you)

I took the opportunity to dedicate this award to Singapore bloggers. Let's hope we can get to know each other better within home ground.
