I never thought I would say this but we survived Junior’s first major public meltdown. My bub has a really strong character, he is strong willed and can be stubborn at times. He knows what he wants, what he likes and certainty what he doesn’t like.
Often, my go to work attire consist of a blouse, a snug fitted knit pencil skirt and a pair of flats. It is extremely comfortable and one of those assemble that never goes wrong. However, as much as I love my knit pencil skirts, I actually don’t own that many pairs because a good quality one at an affordable price is hard to find. So I have 2 and I basically wore them to death and now they are looking tired and in need to be replaced.
Remember my nature the teacher post where I mentioned the controversy and debatable topic of introducing screen time (TV / Ipads / Tab / Mobile phones etc) to our little ones?
Yes, so I’ve been having these nagging feeling and was thinking a lot about recently that I polled fellow mummies and daddies in the Singapore Parent Bloggers group. I needed to gain some insights and hear some views.
It is now a norm and a habit of mine to scour and visit fabric shops in my travels. I’ve really grew to enjoy these trips to fabric places as every experience is different and there are just so much to see.
We didn’t used to frequent Gardens By The Bay until our discovery of the Children’s Garden. In fact, we were really quite impressed with the Children’s Garden and all that it offers. It is a great place for kids, if I say so myself, and my little bub certainly enjoys himself every single time we are there. He loves the water play area the most, especially so on warmer days.
The saying is true – time flies when you are having fun. This will be the last instalment of this 7 part mini-series which I hope have being interesting and a ball of fun to read.

Last month when The Monthly Stitch held it’s annual Indie Patter Month challenge, I jumped on the opportunity to try a new pattern and also to have some fun. I have been quite conservative in using commercial and indie patterns and have preferred to draft my own for I was afraid of fitting issues. I supposed all I needed was some motivation to start my engine rolling. So, I decided to jump into the deep end to challenge myself this Indie Pattern Month.
There is 1 thing I’ve learnt from Sophie of Ada Spragg and that is, quality sewing takes time. She has shown me in so many ways that a good sew cannot be rushed. And that is such a huge reminder to myself.
Sophie is also one who has impeccable style and wicked sewing skills, definitely one who has a wardrobe I’ll love to ransack someday (heh!). I’m always stalking her blog and getting so much inspiration out of it and I’m sure you would too, so I’m excited for her to be on this week’s mini-series where she shares more and gives us a tip or 2.
