I looked at my reflection in the mirror this morning and realized that I lost some more weight over the weekend. The tension at work has been giving me gastritis and I haven't been eating properly. I don't have to go the scales to know that I'm below my pre-pregnancy weight. I also know I'm looking terribly washed out and am getting sick easily. So first priority now would be to get my body in shape in order to cope with work, take good care of my children and knit. I'll take it a step at a time and stop pushing myself too hard.
Something to cheer me up though. My eldest sister-in-law went to Singapore for a 4-day holiday with her family and came back with loads of goodies from my parents. My mum sewed some clothes for the children, packed some chillies, green limes, and spices that are not readily available here in Hong Kong. She also bought some brown rice cereal for little Chung Yi. I don't know why, but Nestle doesn't distribute the same products, like the brown rice cereal in Hong Kong. Whenever there's someone coming from Singapore to Hong Kong, my parents are sure to ask the 'courier' to bring us some goodies. Their thoughts just make the presents extra special. Ji Yuan's so happy with her new dress Granny sewed that she refused to change into her pyjamas just now. Chung Yi is too little to express herself but I'm sure she'll love her cereal.
Just a still life shot of the Thinking Dress.
Read that Rowan's children patterns are usually generously sized. This one seems to fit just right. I wonder how much longer it's going to last?
