The weekend that was

What?? Another weekend passed?? What happened lah??

The long awaited "recognition day and hi tea" for Johan's Year 6 of Adni finally took place last Saturday pm.. I was on jitters ! This event was organised by the mommies of Year 6 and helped  by the teachers.  A whatsapp group was set  up and I was soon privy to the mad organising that went on. There were the invitation cards to print, the cupcakes/carrotcakes door gifts to make/give, the printing, the pressies for the students and the teachers (apparently the teachers requested?! heheh) The venue and the most important part- the moolah!Close to RM20,000 ok ! Sponsorship were sought and amazingly obtained! Amazing to me because someone actually sponsored a standard 6 non event , of a private school. Hehehehe. I absolutely thought we were going over the top. Baru darjah 6 lah oi! But the parents had fun and were good at organising so lah! I applaud their efforts because the whole event went well. The teachers were happy and felt appreciated. The moms and dads were happy . The food was good (lemon chicken, tiger prawn!) . The kids?? I asked one of them how it was- he said BOSAN! (Boring!) And this was supposed to be their day.hehehehe

Finally met the mom and dad of Jojo's bff Amirool . I was sitting there chatting with him when I suddenly thought- eh, his parents were sure to be here? I'm always seeing him alone in the house, not used to seing his parents. I turned around and there they were, waiting for me to say hi! The mom and dad are very nice and I extended the open invitation to have Amirool over . Turned out they were in a fix about where to put Amirool next week because they were going away and amirool has a school trip (which Johan is not going to voluntarily) and when he comes back they would still be away. I offered to house him lah! Apa lah.. but it's nice that they asked.

Yeah Johan has a school trip to Langkawi changed to Melaka. He didn't even bother to tell me because the 4 girls before him were not allowed to travel on a bus before the age of 13. Even though I don't really mind him going because (a) it's only to Melaka and (b) it's in Melaka. hehehe.

So that was Saturday sorted. Sunday pulak- we have finally gotten off our bums to do Arabic. And forcing ourselves to do work beforehand means we enjoy it more. The kids are good . mom and dad- not so much.

Another thing I forced myself to do was to go to KLCC to shop. No kidding. I do not like to shop. So this is me- go in, go to Isetan, go to get Johan's clothes , pay, go out. The end. Johan dah takda baju langsung, all short or tight. And his pyjamas- the MAID asked me to buy new ones as the ones he has are old and faded. So I bought 6 pairs I think. Ha kau.

The maid is back to normal HUZZAH!!! She is now cooking , cleaning etc. And I feel soo relieved. Must have a maid because otherwise I turn into a dragon. I was peering into every nook and cranny when I was doing things myself. I cleaned the fridge and the freezer.  I swept madly. I love housework! If I don't have other things to do lah! I cooked! So yeah, glad I can pass the baton. But I think the time for her to do things unsupervised is over. Ada hikmahnyer dia tak sehat..i now realise what I want her to do and what she has not been doing, or doing in a way I do not like. For eg. I want her to wash her clothes separately from us. Diva ke? No , cause respect lah the boss right ha ha..!

Ok lah...babaii guys...take care....I am still having back pain nih...but can run lah actually..dah terpikir nak buat ZUMBA..hehehehe
