Today on my 30th birthday, I
i) woke up at 4am then slept at 5am, woke up at 7am to help feed Chloe milk, and slept again at 730am till 10am.
ii) painted the fence and learnt a quote. “It is not how much paint you painted on the timber that matters, its how much the timber can absorb that matters.” Often for many things, this principle applies, one of them is, “It is not how many times you read the notes that matters, it is how much that will get into your brain that matters.”
iii) whilst painting the fence I was greeted in mandarin (ni hao) by a group of kids (10 years old max) and I said ni hao back. One of them even did a kungfu style salute. I thought to myself, they must have watched The Karate Kid and they must have thought all handy man possess some sort of kungfu… hehehehe…
iv) whilst painting the fence, listening to my techno songs i did some dance moves and suddenly my mother-in-law tapped me on my shoulder, laughing..
v) whilst painting the fence, someone asked me for road directions, I helped him with my Iphone Google Map, and he was quite impressed with the technology…
vi) I managed to convince Chloe that she needs to behave herself, if not Daddy will punish her. She nodded when I said to her, “If you are naughty, I will put your finger into the froggy’s mouth (ceramic ornament), so are you going to be a good girl?” And she shook her head when I asked, “Are you going to be naughty?”
vii) Instead of the plan of going out for a meal with Daisy, we decided to eat in with Mummy and Gavin, and straight after meal, Daisy complained of pain and tiredness, so now she is sleeping next to me whilst I type this blog post..
What a day.
Thanks guys for the surprise birthday bbq party……
