Off to a better term ahead, hopefully

I just realised that I haven’t written a post in more than a month! Term 3 of school just zoomed past. The kids took turns to be ill on and off the entire past six weeks and while we usually hardly see the doctor, we became regulars at the clinic this season. In fact we saw the doctor so often she actually had the chance to tell me that she found my blog when she was reading about our Royal Caribbean cruise experience!

IMG_0821To make it worse, lil boy accidentally kicked my little toe on our way back from one of our trips to the clinic in July and caused me to be unable to walk for a few days and I had to limp for three whole weeks. I was walking behind him, and wasn’t expecting him to suddenly swing his leg to the side, just when I set foot forward. It wasn’t a pretty sight. My toe was kicked entirely out of alignment and I had to manually push my toe back.


In the midst of all the chaos at home, I was really glad to receive my favourite hydrangeas from A Better Florist recently. The gorgeous blooms are so uplifting and couldn’t have come at a better time! There are so many other amazing bouquets to choose from, but my love for hydrangeas runs deep so it was the obvious choice for me.

My toe still doesn’t feel the same though it isn’t really painful unless I purposely go rub it. I’m just grateful that I had help from my mum and aunt while I was out of action for the few days I couldn’t walk and my hubby rushed back from work to take me to clinic.

But most importantly, I can walk now! Such joy to be back on my feet without feeling pain! Such joy to be able to resume my long brisk walks!
