Madness always starts early in this household. Ms C (5 years old) is learning the art of the lie-in but Mr K (6 years old) is a consistent early riser. The time for myself is normally during school hours and after they sleep.
My usual routine is to finish the housework and prepare and cook lunch/dinner while listening to Chinese music from my favourite Singaporean radio station via an app on my iPad. Once finished, I can relax and will often chat on Facebook and Twitter. It can be random people from Twitter or my friends from Facebook for any gossip or news from England or back in Singapore.
The days of having an indulgent long bath with wine and scented candles are long gone since parenthood. Now using a fragrance diffuser plus a quick shower is my next best thing. I love to have diffusers around the house as it give continuous aromas around the house. I always have different fragrances in each room. I think it helps to give a different theme to each room and it will also ensure I won’t get immune to the scents.
