All’s Well That Ends Well

7 Jan 2021 – Time Will Heal The Wounds

Mon: Grenseland/Borderliner – Norwegian crime drama series filmed in OSL. Glad to be able to watch this without subtitles as any other films not in English, subtitles are a must for me!

Tue: grocery day – trying to save on the promotions and bought more than I should have. Trolley-bag on wheels tipped over on the escalator@Bedok Bus-Interchange causing a fall, bruising&scraping the R-knee&elbow. Some kind souls stopped the escalator and helped me pick up my grocery. As my XX-father-in-law, John3, the orthopedic surgeon used say, that too shall pass – do not think any bones got broken, but sore around the R-ribs area and that too will soon heal.

Love all, trust a few,
Do wrong to none: be able for thine enemy
Rather in power than use; and keep thy friend
Under thy own life’s key: be check’d for silence,
But never tax’d for speech – All’s Well That Ends Well/Shakespeare

Saved S$4.09/Senior%, but will try and remember to not over-buy in future! Tue usually goes quickly by with grocery shopping and getting foods ready into small packages (enough for one meal) to freeze. Would pick up this amount ~1-2times per month and then will get bits&pieces of fresh produce or whatever I might need as the days go by.

Look what arrived in the mail today – made my day, especially after the fall. #4 is the one who has changed most in these pix. Vivid memories taking care of her first 14days when Linn had to be hospitalized after the birth in 2009. She is the only grandchild I had the pleasure to take care of so fully and such an easy cuddly baby – no complains, just happy as long as she was fed and clean diapers every 4hrs. 

Wed: Nollaig na mBan – Little Christmas or Women’s Christmas in certain parts of Ireland. Traditionally the last day for the Christmas tree to be up but also a day when the woman of the house is exempt from all housework! A day/night when women go out and relax, but for me it is time to take down the Christmas decorations.

Thu: putting away the Christmas decorations, 2020 has had the least decorations up ever since the start of decorating for Christmas. Also taking notes for 2021 Season’s Greetings+gifts list – the next celebration will be CNY, 12Feb, the year of the OX.

Of all the greetings, there is only 1 that is hand-painted – do look forward to receiving Inger’s (Sweden) artwork every year. 2019, she did not paint any, commented that I missed her lovely paintings. Also do like all the pix greetings, especially when I can see the difference of how the children have grown. Most of all, really enjoy hearing from each&everyone with their annual updates. Thank you for the gatherings with good company + foods,  gifts, and to all who took the time to write. Have been slacking with 2020season’s greetings, but will try to make it up, ie by getting the hard-copy&postage ready to be mailed by 1Dec2021. 

We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential― Ellen Goodman
