My girl had school on Valentine’s Day so we had to wake up at 6.30am to get her ready and send her to school. When I was tying her hair, hubby came up behind me and gave me a hug and a kiss and said “Happy Valentine’s Day Hon.” I like that.
Hubby sent my girl to school. I tried to go back to bed but couldn’t so I just cuddled the little one and watched him sleep. I like that.
When hubby got back, he wanted to have his Maggie Mee staple so I prepared some for him. He likes that. I gave some to the boy too. Bad mommy. Of course, I had some too. After that I spent some time counting the kids angpow money so we could bank it in for them. Wow! The angpow packets were really varied and in very nice designs. I must take a pic and post it up if I am not too lazy. We will leave a little bit of the angpow money for them to buy something small of their choice. They will like that.
When that was done, we had to go and make some payments here and there, we had some errands to run, wrote some cheques, did some filing etc. Then it was time to fetch the girl back from school. Since it was a Saturday, we all went to fetch her together. She likes that. The school was more relaxed too since it was a Saturday. They allowed us into the grounds and into the canteen. Normally, they either refuse to let us in or let us huddle together in a corner like sheep in a pen. Hahaha.
The boy was able to run about freely. He likes that. Hubby swung him around and around and they both looked happy. When they are happy, I am happy. I like to watch them together like this.
Then we took the girl to the mall for lunch and to browse at the bookshop. The kids had fish and chips. They like that. Hubby and I had Thai Pineapple Fried Rice. We like that. The maid got to enjoy the Pineapple Fried Rice too. She likes that. Oh oh. The lunch must have been bad, I had to rush home to the comfort of my own toilet. Haha. After that, I bathed the kids and sent them to bed. I badly needed a bath and a hairwash too but I was too tired so I went to sleep without my bath. It was quiet in the afternoon as the whole family napped.
When we woke up, I cooked a very simple dinner that the maid had helped me prepare. Then I told hubby “Happy Valentine’s Day. Sorry, I don’t have the energy to prepare anything special. Just do whatever you can, thats what you always tell me. Hehehe.”
So we had our simple dinner and everyone ate in front of the tv. Everyone likes that. We had CNY leftover F&N Orange and Coke with ice “because it was Valentine’s Day.” Then it was time for my girl to practise Piano for her ABRSM Piano Trial Exam and do some homework. I sat with her to practise piano while hubby taught the boy some math. Hubby has decided to become the kids’ math tuition teacher so he spends some time whenever he can teaching them math.
When my girl was doing her homework, I escaped to have my shower and hair washed at last! Then I dried my hair while guiding her with her homework. After that the kids had milk and doughnuts for supper. They like that.
Then it was off to bed for them. They looked sleepy and didn’t protest or try to join in when I went to snuggle with hubby to watch his favourite martial art movie that I had bought for him for his birthday recently. He likes that and I like to cuddle up.
Now, depending on how you see it, that can be a boring, just another nothing special type of Valentine Day or it can be a blissful Valentine’s Day, a perfect day filled with love.
