we moved to our new place on Monday 16th May.
we've had a few mishaps since moving in the new place: on Tues 17th May, shirin got quite sick & we had to send her to A&E KK hospital since it was a public holiday (Vesak Day) & all the clinics were closed. she had a mild bout of pneumonia but luckily there it was not neccesary to admit her. this had happened 4 days after mom's passing & the day after we moved to new place. that same day, Is had sprained her right foot when she had walked too fast & stumbled in a pothole on the way to the provision shop! i only knew abt it when i noticed she was limping while walking! she didn't tell me (typical of Is style). later that night Mimi helped D send Is to the KTP A&E hospital to check her foot. thankfully it wasn't fractured or broken & it healed soon after after an injection & few rounds of painkillers + anti-swelling medicine. that same day, we had mom's 3rd day passing religious gathering so shirin went to hosp before the gathering & Is went after. aya & D got sick too...i had to send aya to baby bear & she got similar prescription like shirin & D managed to get 1 day MC...as for me i had to battle the virus best i could by taking paracetamol & my telfast....for that first few days & nights at the new house i had to be strong....to take care of the kids since my helper Is was down & D was overcome with his cold.
this is the second week at the new place. thanks to Mimi, Ipah & Seri's help, we managed to unpack about 90% of our boxes. we still have some things left in the storeroom of the old place...but we don't have to rush as Mimi won't be selling his place yet.
thank you for the condolences you've given us. we are slowly coping with the loss of our beloved mother....last saturday 21st May, we had another religious gathering to offer prayers for mom's 7th day passing. it was a good closure for me to be with close family members & it felt good that i was able to help with packing of the food etc.
p.s. abt the new place, there are still touch ups to be done. and i still haven't started baking yet. will jumpstart in June: i already have a few pending orders.
pp.s on a good note, the girls are in love with the swimming pool because it has this big yellow slide & the kids pool is shallow enough for them to splash around in.
ppps. everyone is on the road to recovery (touch wood) from their coughs, colds & sprains. hopefully.
