We're having our 1 week school break this week before the final term. As always, my girl had a lot of homework which required a lot of nagging from us. When I am president, holiday homework will be outlawed!
My son, on the other hand had no homework. He spent every waking moment (well, almost) playing games. I have told him that from Monday, he has to study for his coming GCE 'O' levels which start in October. I can't believe it. He's 16!
This week we tried to do stuff with the kids since during school term, it's quite impossible. Being the kind of shopping mall parents we are, we ended up just going to different places to eat!
I'm afraid to inform you I have grown rather fat. Next week I shall exercise and eat porridge every day. Pinkie promise.
We did stop eating once to go see a movie. You've probably never heard of it. It's Detective Conan - Private Eye of the Distant Sea. See, I told you. There were a total of 8 people in the cinema including the 4 of us. I suspect one of the 8, a lone guy went just to enjoy the cold air and take a nap. The movie was ridiculously expensive. We did get 4 "free" plastic folders. See the photo above? That's the folder. I'll be sure to put them to good use. Oh, did I mention the movie is in Japanese? Luckily, there were English subtitles. The movie was quite enjoyable. There were moments when I laughed until I cried. Oh, did I also mention the movie is a CARTOON? Er, I mean, animation.
Despite being joined at the hips to my family this week, I managed to put in a fair amount of work in my pattern. Yes, it's still not finished. I'm already at the photo editing stage which is a good stage to be at, I can tell you that. I have just 100 more photos to take so it's looking good. I will have to get this pattern done by this month by hook or by crook because from October, I need to sew my head off again for my craft market.
One last thing. If you've bought my Easy Sling Bag Pattern, I have uploaded another version to Etsy and Craftsy. You need not download the new version because all I did was adjust the angle of an image. I have not made any changes to the instructions. It was really bugging me and I apologise for the unnecessary notification by Craftsy (which is beyond my control). Thank you for your patience.
See you in my next post. I'll show you my loot.
