I woke up this morning to find a note on my table. The kids frequently leave notes on my desk and I heard YK scribbling something while I was sleeping last night. It says "Can you cook porridge (the watery kind), omelette with spring onions and some vegetables for breakfast?"
I walked into the kitchen, put some rice in the cooker and then got carried away with the cooking. I fried up some eggs, green vegetables, cabbage and fish cakes. Then I realised I was running out of time. I had only 25 minutes (instead of the normal 55 minutes) to mop the kitchen floor, wash the cooking pan, shower, make up, change, wake SK up, feed Rusty and walk him.
Somehow I managed to accomplish all that within less than 30 minutes. SK and Rusty had a proper breakfast and we arrived in school on time as usual.
I am generally a fast worker, sometimes too fast for my own good. Last night, I slipped and fell in the bathroom because I was trying to do too many things at the same time. While rinsing the clothes in the bathtub, I decided to wash the floor using soapy water. It's no wonder I slipped and earned myself 2 angry bruises on my pelvis and thigh.
Still I haven't learned my lesson. I was scurrying about this morning and was amazed that applying make up and dressing up that usually takes 10 minutes can be reduced to 30 seconds if you're in a hurry! Even the walk with Rusty was a hurried one. He gave up fighting with me over where he wanted to go and followed me home without much resistance.
On a separate note, I think my laptop's days are numbered. While I was in the bathroom yesterday, I heard a crash. I ran out to find my lappy on the floor and a shocked YK sitting nearby. He was moving about on my chair when the laptop's wire got caught and landed in a spectacular crash. Luckily only the battery sustained damage. The lappy is still working but it is acting a little weird today. This workhorse is already 6 years old but I love it to death. I just hope it won't die on me anytime soon.
