school hols

Am starting the one-week ( soon over ) school hols by driving ( with sis as travelling companion) to visit my mum. It is a 3-hour drive one way. Hoping for fine weather and
deliverance from nasty, inconsiderate ( not -cared-to-die type) drivers. After the recent express bus incident, I know I have to remind myself to stay away from them, and not drive too near them.

I plan to stay one night. In such a short period, I hope to bring some cheer into my mum's life . (he is 83) Will ask her what her food cravings are and get them from the market. I have bought some mooncakes for her and some keropok (the softer type), a shawl ( in case she gets chilly at night) and a very nice-looking fan.(in case she feels warm, which son calls an authentic fan)What else does a mum need? Most of all, kids who spend time with her, I know

To the rest of you, school hols mean kids spending longer hours at home; I know, that can be trying and tiring!

Happy hols!

Males rock (?)

Son: " Mum, do you know that the female insects eg, mosquitoes are the ones which bite?
The male insects carry pollen.

This is the first time I am going to say this, but males rock!"
