Summer officially beginning today, I was this morning reminded by Jay. Yes, it is 1st December 2011,
December is always a busy month for me. Hoping this year would be a bit relaxing. Kids are having their piano exams next week, then school year end prize giving , outing, farewell dinner ...
and we are home for Chistmas and New Year. Yipee!!!
