The past 90 days have been spent doing things I’ve not had the time to do – recharging, recalibrating and just generally thinking about how to live life better. I’ve been to the bank, I’ve re-organised our home life, I’ve spent a heap of time with our girls, I’ve relooked at our family priorities and thought about what I need to do better, both personally and professionally. It has been a most enriching three months, indeed.
What I’ve learnt
And lastly, though you will….
Never, ever doubt.
… And I finally have bits of video converted from DV tapes. Here’s my sister’s speech on the night of our wedding in 2006 :)
Talk about a throwback!
Every now and again I find myself struggling to stay in bed. These little monsters crawl in and hog the entire thing, and poor Hubba and I are literally hanging off the side all night.
But who can resist these faces?
“Whereas it is an inalienable right of a people to be free and independent, I, Lee Kuan Yew, prime minister of Singapore, do hereby proclaim and declare on behalf of the people and the government of Singapore that as from today, the ninth day of August in the year one thousand nine hundred and sixty-five, Singapore shall be forever a sovereign, democratic and independent nation, founded upon the principles of liberty and justice and ever seeking the welfare and happiness of her people in a more just and equal society.”
And your work is done, Sir.
May you forever rest in peace.
Recently I’ve realized how much of a haze the past few years have been.
Life has been a whole lot of ‘busy’ and while there is none of it I would regret, I’m starting to smell the roses again. I guess it helps that the little ones are in such a hilarious stage in life and I’m really trying not to miss a minute of it.
Have you stopped to smell the roses today? What is the one thing you’d want to give thanks for?
