people are always commenting how often im on leave or so but it's just a case of me not saving up huge number of leaves to carry forward to the next year.
I don't see the point in that, bulk of a year's leave should be used appropriately within the year.
actually with the annual leave and childcare leave that most parents are entitled, it's more than reasonable/enough to take 2 days off every month and yet still has enough leave to go for a short (2-3 days) and a long (6-10days?) trips during the year?
and of cos we don't take 2 days off every month and of cos we try to overlap with weekends for trips. so really, most people leave should be more than enough for them to take a break at least every other month.
worst is those who don't and c/f leave just so they can expired!
ok, so the younger boy is having a mini excursion to the philatelic museum with his school.
I took leave to accompany him so that after that, we can head out and spend some time with the husband (who took PM leave to join us!).
comparing to yz, we actually spend much lesser time with him alone - I was definitely doing more such things when yz was in learning vision back then.
happy boy and me on the excursion bus
we reached the museum slightly before 10am and the kids had fun with the museum staff who facilitated some interesting learning games with the 2 nursery classes.
I took the opportunity to take tour round the museum which is pretty small and nothing much. :P
the bus was here at 12+ to pick the kids back to school and we bade farewell to his teachers and classmates from there.
met up with hubbi who came to fetch us and off we go to town! :D
it was amazing how many people were in town - don't anyone have to work or go to school?
simple walking around and stopping often to snack on this and that.
it was good time spent together with the younger boy.
we had an early dinner @ saveur at far east before heading to yz school to fetch him direct.
quiet evening of the boys playing on their own and us catching up on housework.
rest of weekend ahead. this is good!
