I am house-bound today. Kids got tuition at home, 2 sessions back-to-back, 9am to 3pm. Can't join hubby out, I'm preparing lunch, I'm preparing tea. I pass the time puttering about in my room, reorganise my dressing table and finish another basket lining.
There is still an hour before the kids finish and we can go to the pool. I'm thinking baking to kill time, but can't stand the day's heat. It's boiling.
Finally clock strikes 3. Oh! but it starts raining. And heavily. No! There goes the day. Well, why don't I just take a nap then. Perfect isn't it? Raining..and the bed is cosy but try as I might I can't make myself sleep. Sleep is not what I want to do.
So I go down again and join the kids watching cartoon. When I peer outside a while later, the rain has stop. Good sign, my daughter quickly drag me out to play badminton. Just when we start warming up, I see a car pull up the drive way. My sister. And all her kids at the back. I hear my daughter squeal and run inside to tell the others. My sister comes out the car and hands something to me, something packed in a plastic bag. It feels warm. It's food. Satay! which she got on her way here. I'm smiling. So..there is happy ending after all to this gloomy day.
