Hi everyone…it’s been a while since my last post. Well, I’ve been busy with life being ups and downs. Some days it’s ok another day it’s throwing me with lots of not so pleasant surprises. Anyhow, I’m hanging here and praying and believing that all of these will pass, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel, right?
So, despite all of the dramas in my life at the moment, I am actually loving the month of February. Not only because it’s my birth month and Valentine, but also it’s the shortest month of the year as you all knew, and it’s summer in this part of my world. And this year the summer is so mild, fingers cross it will stay like this. As far as I can remember, Perth only has two or three days being 39/40 degree while the rest is around 28nish. Though last week we had very humid and sticky weather, just like in Indonesia, weird!
This February I’m a year older than last year. I didn’t have plan to celebrate my birthday this year, so when my dearest and nearest girlfriends surprised me with birthday brunch at my fave cafe near the beach, I was so touched. I didn’t even think they would remember my birthday, so it was really really a nice surprised and I’m grateful. See, it’s not all Indonesians living abroad are “unbearable” to be friends with, you just have to choose the right circle and stick with it 🙂
On Valentine’s day I hosted a simple lunch for a small group of friends. One of my good friend who lives in Bali visited Perth for a short period, so I thought a good catch up with the rest of the gang would be good. We also went to see Mr. Christian Grey and Ms. Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades Darker, we had a good laugh and great night!
Despite the fun I had with my friends, this mama also had a proud moment and it was a double gift for my birthday. One of my boy got an excellent academic award for 2016 together with 15 other students of year 7, yaay….thank you Lord. We spent this February month with some sports commitment too. Country swimming carnival at Harvey, though that day was kinda horrible, it was pouring rain and so windy and thunderstorm but the race was on. Twin #1 got some silvers and bronzes, not really at his best, but it was ok. Then the next day after we had State Qualifier for surf life saving club. Twin #2 got into a state time for Iron man while #1 got time for Swim Race.
The rest of last week, we spent it at the beach and a short drove to Swan valley area to see the river over flowing.
Hope you all have a good day and enjoy my short video below that capturing most of what I’ve been doing for the month of February!
Laters baby 🙂
