Mother’s Day 2009


My Mother’s Day haul this year. It’s so sweet that all 4 went out of their way to each make something or present something to me.

Tasmin made me a card, as well as a towel Bunny. Which explains why she was asking me what my favourite animal was. “Dog.” “But do you also like rabbits?” “Yeeaahh..?” “OK.”

Joe got me flowers the day before. Just because. And it wasn’t my Mother’s Day gift cos he was already in cahoots with Megan to get me something shiny.

Lauren’s present was made by her classmates cos she missed school all of last week. Nice that her teacher made sure she had something for me. I would’ve thought she was young enough to forget, but her teacher said that since they had discussed it beforehand and in case my Lauren remembered, better make sure she had hers as well.

Megan went shopping for me. She at first couldn’t decide between a Charles & Keith bag or this. She got me earrings and a necklace from Chomel. And almost pechar lobang about the surprise for me. Almost.

You can hear how the planning for my gift went between Joe & Megan on Joe’s podcast on http://morningjam.com

Edited to add:
Oh oh oh, it’s complete!  I got gifts from ALL 4 monkeys!  Jordan just presented me with something he’d been working on all weekend.  A complicated origami star.

I LOVE THEM ALL!

In the meantime, if you’re on Twitter, follow me – Auntyadele. Twitter also automatically updates my Facebook status. If you’re on Facebook, I’m Adele Augustin.

I tweet more than I facebook. And I facebook more than I blog.


Here’s us at Joe’s birthday. Before or after the kiss, I dunno.



Breakfast in bed(room)


A breakfast picnic in the room. Special circumstances in case you think we’re so weird like that.
Joe & Shareen are busy recording their podcast in the other room and we all need to be quiet. Best I can do is to keep them occupied in a room as far away as possible. Pretend our house has a West Wing lah.
Ok brekkie almost done. I think TV would make a good quiet babysitter after this.



Blessed Christmas to everybody!
