Phew! The weekend was kinda exhausting! How was yours?
It started early for me on Saturday when I woke at 430am for my 5am start time for the Dewey’s 24 hour readathon! This was the first time I was up before the start time! I read a comic in bed, then managed to read a couple more (with interruptions from kids waking up and having to be fed breakfast – how demanding! – in between) before I had to start preparing for the birthday party. My kids’ birthdays are in March and April so we held a joint one as we have for the past three years. We had a few friends over, the kids have grown up together and it’s always nice to see them playing together!
We also tried a new restaurant in our city, with xiaolongbao. My five-year-old has a recent love for xiaolongbao and happily gobbled some up.
