It has been raining cats and dogs in Singapore,

literally hours and hours of torrential showers,

the footpaths have become even more treacherously slippery -
I buy another umbrella
and new havaianas with fresh grip

and say hello again to routine, friends and expat life.

I eat properly, exercise,
breathe calmly and try to embrace what engulfs me.

My M2 baby has been very poorly with tonsillitis.


Quiet time is few and far between -

But extra special when it happens.


It is dark outdoors at midday -

I light a candle, switch on a lamp.


It's actually really lovely, you know?

There is a softness in it,

the Embrace.

Love it how you are using those moments my friend. the weather pattern sounds like my time in Queensland! Sorry your gal is bed-ridden. Each night these past few weeks i've breathed in the scent of that beautiful candle-in-lantern. it is to die for! That scent always leads me to think of u xx
