Shameless

by mott on August 10, 2015

Ha ha.. truly I am.

I have been binge watching Shameless S2-S3, and while I enjoyed both seasons, I’m not liking where S4 is going actually. I don’t know why… is it because, now everyone seems to be leading their own lives? Even Carl is all grown up and actually thinking of caring for Frank, rather than blowing something up sky high. The only one that hasn’t grown much is Liam. While the rest of sort of moved on..Liam seems stuck with his curls and toddlerness.

Well..I’m still on E2 of S4, so.. we’ll see where it will all end. Hopefully, it’ll be an enjoyable season!

A consideration …

by mott on August 10, 2015

My kitchen is getting old and tired looking. Not so much the outside, but the insides. I’ve been removing heaps of stuff from it, and I’ve noticed one thing. I hardly use lots of the things I’ve packed in. Is it because I don’t need them, or is it because I don’t have easy access to them? That’s why I’ve been looking at built-in systems from ovis, because they look amazingly functional AND clever!

I love the pull down shelves, which means I don’t have to hunt for a stool! I love all their ideas, and if I could incorporate bits and pieces in my kitchen, it would make it even more ideal! Perhaps I should start on this project.. hmmmm

What is….

August 10, 2015

wrong with drivers of the Australian streets these days? Here are my top three : 1) They have no use for signals. Can’t tell you just how fatalistic it can be, when one doesn’t want to use their signals 2) They have no courtesy. Truly, when a car is parked on the opposite of the [...]

Too easy

August 10, 2015

No.1 has been taking guitar lessons at school, and has remarked how easy it has been for him to pick it up. I’m a little surprised, as he’s not musically inclined because he plays the piano and clarinet like a drill sargent.. there’s no creativity involved, just very technical. Well, he’s decided to consider different [...]

Bottom of the barrel

August 10, 2015

Recently, I read something so profoundly sad, I was thinking about it for days. It was how Hong Kongers generally treat darker skinned individuals very badly. I think the reality is fairly true, as I have HK friends who would die if their child were to be seen with anyone who was darker than them..and [...]

Motherhood

August 10, 2015

A friend recently shared the downside of being a new mom..something I haven’t been thinking about at all. In fact, most of it, I had already forgotten what it was like to be with a new born, and boy.. did I NOT MISS ANYTHING! The sleep deprivation alone would kill anyone – as it is, [...]

Dragging along

August 10, 2015

Well… life is a real donut sometimes. It truly is.. goes round and round and round, and you end up with a hole in the middle. I’ve been packing away the house, well.. just the ground floor. Finally, on the very last day (or so I thought would be the last day), I got the [...]

The contract

July 18, 2015

I’m preparing a contract with my soon to be 10 year old. He doesn’t know of this contract, but he will soon. The rite of passage according to my Sister in Law, is that whenever any of her nephews reach the double digits, they get an iPod. This creates a whole plethora of problems for [...]

Dual personalities

July 18, 2015

Recently I read somewhere about dual identities… which basically means dual personalities? I think everyone has more than one personality or identity or at least a different facade in different circumstances. Within a certain circle of of friends, one can find oneself to be demure and quiet. But with another, extremely boisterous and comical. I [...]

Almost a steal!

July 18, 2015

After much success in the junior band orchestra, No1 was very inspired to consider auditioning for other ensembles, namely the latin jazz band. Not sure whether it’s because I’ve been playing heaps and heaps of bossa nova at home and it just crawled under his skin and stayed there… or, he really likes it! Anyhoo… [...]
