the husband & I have been going through another trying phase of our lives at work.
Not that we haven’t been in the past months, but the past few days have been mentally exhausting that it has driven us pretty much nuts in our own ways, that when we do finally get together in the evenings, the peace is usually enjoyed in silence…before its interrupted with a stream of phone calls, incoming mails and requests that have to be addressed within the next few hours. Yikes. I so want this feeling to go away. Hopefully the start of my new journey in less than a month’s time will see me breathing and appreciating life a bit more. Hopefully, the seaon of Jolly will help too. One can only hope, right?
So, quick summation of the week thus far:
– I was quite disappointed that Kimi didn’t quality for top 10 in the Singapore GP on Saturday, was rooting for him to fall at least within top 8 (for points) on Sunday but that didn’t happen either.
– Monday sucked, because I was practically rushing requests for everyone that I didn’t have time to achieve much from my to-do list…which got dragged on to Tuesday’s to-do list.
Oh yes, something surprising did happen too.
I was attending a social media & creative session earlier this morning when I noticed a new face at the table. An introduction round the table by Ben later confirmed my suspicions. The new face was Luke’s cousin’s (who migrated to New Zealand some 15 years ago) boyfriend! We had met him and his girlfriend (Luke’s cousin) for the first time late last year, and he left a rather good impression on us (young, smart, enthusiastic to learn and conveyed interest in coming Singapore to work upon graduation).
When my mum-in-law mentioned over breakfast yesterday that he was in Singapore, working at an advertising agency along B**ch Road – I replied that there were many agencies along this road and he was probably not at where I was at, because I hadn’t seen any new faces yet. So when I saw him this morning, I had NOOOO idea that the world was that small. Haha, I’ve since open the invitation to have dinner with our family whenever he feels like it. I suppose living alone in a foreign environment initially can get a little….
Along all that’s been happening, my mind has also been occupied with plenty of ongoing discussions about potential ventures…which is great. I just hope I have enough sanity to pull me through and last for at least the first 6 months of whatever that might be. 🙂
Praying for God’s strength…
