DVDs, teaching and being sick

1. I (re)discover the joy of watching DVDs in bed. I'm currently wading my way through a box set of Criminal Minds. Not a show I'd typically watch - much too gory and formulaic. But a colleague lent the set to me and I've been oddly enthralled by it all.
2. The jewellery-making workshop for low-income mums is confirmed. It's good to commit to something I'm terrified of. Let's hope all goes well on the 5th of March.
3. A cold and migraine yesterday meant I spent the day curled up in bed with a glass of honey lemon water by my side.

February, Chinese New Year and movies

1. February arrives amidst thunderstorms and rain. I should hate it but I don't. I love the cooler weather. Plus it's my birthday month.
2. Today is the eve of Chinese (or Lunar) New Year here in Singapore. This means we get off work at 1pm so our Chinese friends have time to go home and prepare for the all-important Reunion Dinner with their families. It also means the start of a long 4-day weekend. What a great way to start the month.
3. Two DVDs sit on my desk waiting to be watched. It's been quite some time since I've been on a movie watching spree so I'm looking forward to it.
