A New Beginning Soon

It is great to be almost well again. :-) I can almost talk normally now without having to clear my throat every 2 minutes. However, I am not sure if the neighbours are happy because instead of hearing me cough or clear my throat, I am now singing (or rather - trying to sing) because for over two months, that is something that I could not do thanks to my sinus.

Here's a spontaneous recording of 'Fly Me To the Moon' which I did this morning.

Of course it is nothing great. My younger boy insists it is NOT music - only cacophony. Today, he was tested and it was confirmed again that he has perfect pitch. My older boy also has the same. Life is unfair. I don't understand why my two boys have perfect pitch but I don't. I can see my boy smirking in the background.

Soon, I will be attending classes. I wonder what it will be like to be a student again. I am quite sure I will be the oldest in the class. The last time I attended an art course, I was the 'Auntie' in the class :-). I am sure it will be the same again.

Anyway, I believe it will be good for me as I can feel what it is like in the other side of the court and to be able to empathise with my students.

Originally, I wanted to be take the course full-time but the Head of Department advised me do it part-time as the full-time workload would be too stressful and it was likely I would have extreme difficulty in meeting deadlines and assignments. I am sure my students reading this would be smiling. :-)

Here's something that my son wrote yesterday afternoon. His reward was extra time for his games. :-)

It was the last round of the card game before we turned in for the night at Jake's sleepover party. Adam suggested that the loser should be slapped with a forfeit. We all agreed that the unlucky one would have to go on his own and knock on the door of the house across the road where Jake lived.
As I looked out of the window, it almost seemed as though that gloomy looking house was glaring at me angrily. I just knew that the loser of this fateful round would definitely have an interesting trip to nothing but sheer doom.
As I played my turn, I gathered my cards and heaved a sigh of relief thinking I had a good call. One by one, we showed our cards. The final round pierced my heart.
I was destined to be THE chosen one. I kept to the deal with unspoken words without looking at my friends who were giggling and grimacing eagerly to frighten me.
Walking there, I felt as though the house opposite was staring right into my eyes. Bathed in the moonlight, the wooden house seemed eerily evil. Curiosity beckoned and I walked towards that house.
Treading slowly on the damp soil in the garden, a sudden surge of panic froze me to the spot. Out of the blue, my friends were screaming and telling me to run for my life.
Before I could turn around to ask them to shut up, I saw a wooden stake moving in my direction and it pierced my chest. A piercing high-pitched scream was the last thing I heard as my head struck the ground.

Wishing everyone a lovely evening!

    masterwordsmith Dear Andrew

    It was difficult to get him to write!!! He used to love writing when he was young and started at the age of three. These days, he loves music so much. He will be performing @ USM tomorrow.

    He actually wrote only the last three paragraphs.


    Then I said it was MUCH TO SHORT.

    So he expanded it to what you see....

    I love my boy very much :-) and wish kids never grow up...they grow too fast and leave the nest - seldom to return...Sighs.

    Take care and God bless!

    masterwordsmith I think it is only right that regardless of any religion/faith, our children should set up their own households once they are married. Otherwise, there will be lots of complications.
