Writer’s Workshop: Keeping Track of July

July has certainly whizzed pass us.  The past month the kids were back in school and I had been kept busy with their new routine. Monkey boy has been selected for intensive badminton practice in school and has to go for CCA twice a week. That means 4hrs of practice with the coach weekly.

After spending a whole month on holiday everyone needed to get into high gear again.  Fortunately the kids were quite adaptable and there wasn’t any back to school blues for them.

Tiger girl had her first manicure and pedicure at the grand old age of TWO. Kids nowadays are really privileged!! I have to wait till I was working before I had my first manicure and it was done just before the wedding 12 years ago.

We celebrated my mum’s 64th birthday too this July with a simple dinner. She ordered her favourite Escagot which she hasn’t eaten in awhile.

The kids have been having their fair share of yummy prata. It is the  Indian dish which all 3 kids love to eat. I personally prefer eating Thosai to having prata. Paper Thoasai is my absolute favourite.

The kids and I have been doing more cooking at home as part of their holisitic learning experience. We used milk and cheese from Greenfields to make some yummy foods.

How was your July?

  1. What busy time you have all had. My July was busy travelling up and down to my visit my partner. I also had major neck surgery and said a tearful goodbye to my Godmother so for me July was not great until the end when we celebrated my youngest grandsons christening

  2. sounds like a great month. My July went by fast. I had fun at work (at the Museum), as we started to plan for new exhibits. And fun at home with my artwork and family. Let’s see what August brings… {:-Deb

  3. Badminton! It was the hubby’s and my ECA back in school days, the sport that eventually brought us together. Sounds like Monkey boy is going to be our future national badminton star! =) Great highlights you have there and isn’t nice to look back at every month and think about all those fun times we had? Thanks for taking the time to reminisce and to link up too! =)

  4. My July went by with a lot of challenges as well. I’ve seen 2 good friends passed on. Overall, all is good. 🙂 Thanks! You got a full July yourself. Am really curious about little girls getting nail pampering. Is it advisable?
