After Math

Hellos,

It's great to be back to blogger world after the celebration of Christ's birth. Hoping that you all had a great merry time during the festive season and actually ate to the fullest.

I only just recently saw on a T.V add that turkey has an ingredient that is used in some sleeping pills. I did have more than a lions share of turkey which explains my high slumber affinity & slight delay in getting back to posting.

Much as I was not feeling Christmasy at first, I did have more fun than I had expected. First, my weekend began early on Wednesday when I was told the office would be closed from Christmas eve in order to enjoy x-mas days much to my delight and wishing. I had so much fun moving around taking pictures, shopping for last minute presents and buying the food for the meal.

I only just opened my presents yesterday and was very happy with what met my eyes. No it was not some tech stuff like I had secretly wished for but things to add to my wardrobe. I now have a different tie for each day of the week, a 5 Kg chain and an LR suit.

Since I came, there are still clothes I've not got chance to put on, and more seam to be coming in. All the clothes I had in Ug could hardly fit in the tin case and I was fine with that but now, hmm am yet to get used to the diversity, only good thing is I've not done laundry for over a month.

My mum surprised me this morning when she said she was hoping to get an ipod. How did she know about that? My mum is kinda traditional and hates any tech stuff, she has hardly mastered how to use her own cellphone so you can understand why the ipod was a shocker.

I think my sister might have given her that bad ipod idea maybe even someone at her work but much as I love her more than the cost of the ipod, the $150(-tax) for the latest nano is a bit outside of my rather tiny budget. I mean even Santa went into recession and may kids did not get stuff from north pole.

All of a sudden I have nothing else to say. Well may be I should close by weechu a prosperous new year and thanks for the time together the past few months.

How was the festivity your side?

Any real resolutions for 2009?

Huh, I also want an ipod. No resolutions yet. We had Christmas at my sister's place instead of my Mom's. My sister's job provides her with housing. It was nice because it is her first job after 8 years of being a stay at home Mom. And then Mom retired from teaching so she has no place of her own to stay for the time being.

Happy New Year.

hey emi's;
its me, the non-xmasy one. i cooked,washed up, cooked, wahsed up... normally, there's only two females in the house; me n my mum. this time, she also left, all the boys wanna do is eat; they imagine every dish is bought prepared and after they eat the utensils somehow clean themselves up, so...u can imagine my predicament. i liked it tho; mopping after the bugers. i dnt even have any apetite fro the rice and chicken!wat a xmas.to go through without a death is wat matters more to me than anythg else, so it was lovely.

happy nu year all, or weweeechu as Emi's likes to call it.
