Because of the extra help(in the form of 公公 and 舅舅) we got this month, E and I started travelling out more with the kids. The first weekend, we went to South Bank and Covent Gardens with them. We decided to go for a road trip for the second weekend and headed to Oxford. Weather was expected to be rainy but thankfully, the skies held up.
It took us about 2 hours via car to get there. 辛苦了, Mister E. 🙂
Here’s a picture of me and Ryan. My skirt is from Top Shop, steal at £10. Heehee.
Here’s my brother, Leon and my Papa. The whole month of May was just so awesome with them. I think I hardly felt tired with the company. Both of them were very accommodating and patient with the children.
Ryan insists on going anywhere and everywhere with his scooter.
OXFORD COVERED MARKET
BREAKFAST AT PIE MINISTER
This is one of the fairly nice family photo we have.
This is quite hilarious actually. And for the record, this picture was done without any harm to Ryan. Purely for the 5 seconds of photography purpose. Heehee.
Sent two postcards home. I have started sending postcards to my Mom and Papa at every new borough that we visit. It is my way of telling my parents that they are always in my heart and mind.
PEDALO IN OXFORD
This activity was insisted by E despite my protests against it.
In the end, I am glad we did it because everyone enjoyed ourselves, especially the children. We bought a huge loaf of bread from Mark and Spencer and we fed everything to the hungry ducks, swans and geese.
One of the ducks was so bold to jump onto our boat to get more bread from us.
Looking back at all these pictures make miss my family so much. As of now, my brother and father have returned to Singapore for a week. Their absence in the house is very obvious, both physically and emotionally. The two young children miss their friendly faces in the morning, the warm hugs and the time the spent playing with them. The last few days of them being with us were quite painful for me. I just felt a myriad of emotions facing their imminent departure. On one hand, I wanted to be happy and enjoy the remaining few days with my Papa and Leon. Yet, my spirits were mostly dull and there were quite a few times when I had to leave to tear in the toilet or bedroom. My family means so much to me especially since we are so tight. There are nights when I wake up, missing my parents, wondering how they are and wondering if life would be better if we stayed in Singapore…
