Arrrgh! One week has passed and I have very little to show. You could say I am suffering from burnout? Or what's the term for when you try to do a lot but accomplish very little?
Last week was school holidays but my son's school didn't understand what it meant. He had to go back to school for 3 days of volley ball practice. Which meant my plan to sleep in was shattered. Also I usually schedule medical appointments during school holidays and that's where most of my time went - sitting in waiting rooms and travelling on the train. I had to go see my gynae for a simple procedure. For most women or rather every woman except moi, such a procedure is a breeze. 5 mins max. For me, I went 2 times. The second time I was sedated! Which means I had to fast. It took 2 hours - most of it spent sleeping off the sedation. I need to explain that I have a very low threshold of pain. Not just actual pain. It includes imagined pain, pre-judged pain and pain from a previous life. (I don't actually believe in previous lives, I'm just saying)
I did manage to complete 2 bags. Quite a feat considering. I made pleated bags again. Yes, I'm basically making the same old bags but making small changes. It's been thunderstorming like crazy in Singapore so taking photos is a challenge.
April MAAD countdown. 7 out of 15. 8 more bags to make with only 10 days left. TEN days left!
Finally, this blog had the misfortune of being spammed last week. Luckily for me, it was school holidays so I was up late and I was just horrified when I saw that a spam comment was being inserted into my posts. Previously, it was quite random and I would go in and delete the comment. This time it was more vicious. It was trying to comment in every single post in my blog. (I have over 100!) When I caught it, it had commented in more than 20 posts. I quickly changed my comments setting to comment moderation and that did the trick. It seemed this program which originated from Taipei, Taiwan was able to bypass word verification. Anyway, I have deleted the spam comments. Just so you know, the comments were in Chinese. Those of you who have commented in my blog recently would have noticed that now your comments will only be visible after approval. (i only reject spam) This is the best solution for me in order to ensure my blog is not spammed again. I hope everyone will understand. And by the way, thank you guys for the comments. I know it takes effort and I appreciate it.
