On Life: My Summer Break

Hubby and I have been travelling to some cities in Europe, then we've had family and friends coming and going because of the summer holidays, there have also been places to go, people to see, four weddings, two birthday parties and all the other social events that increase when the weather is nice. I never thought I would say this, but I really can't wait until the holidays are over and things get back to normal so I can resume my usual routine.

The travelling has been fun though! I've definitely enjoyed lots of quality time for hubby and I to reconnect, away from the pressures of work and everything else. We've been to Eindhoven, Bremen and Paris in the past three weeks, and the lovely memories will last a life time. I finally went on the Eurostar that I had been hearing so much about, finally got to see the Eiffel Tower. Sorry I'm feeling too lazy to sort through the photos and upload them.

When I've had some downtime, I've been catching up on my reading, which is good cos I need to keep myself inspired. I've recently read two fiction novels, The Pirate's Daughter and The Outcast, and two non-fiction books: Love and Respect and One Love, Two Colours (this one I particularly enjoyed cos it was very personal but also thought provoking). It was great to be reading again. In the busyness of everyday I sometimes forget how much I love reading, how good it feels to be so absorbed in a good book that you lose track of time, how much books have the power to change your mind and even challenge your beliefs. I used to enjoy reading books, magazines or newspapers on the commute but now I have to remind myself to pick up a book occasionally.

Have a great weekend and remain favoured.


  1. Thanks for the update on your life; I'm glad you're doing well and having so much fun! Great answer to your family re: babies by the way! Thank God for giving you the wisdom to respond like that.

    I haven't read your series because I'm afraid that I won't be able to keep up. Woe is me, right? ;)

  2. Good to hear you are having fun.

  3. I was about sending out a search party for you.

    Good to know that you are having fun. I think Paris is beautiful too. I went to the Eiffel tower but mehn I was to afraid of heights to climb up sha.

  4. Finally a word from Favoured Girl. Its been sooo long, lol.
    I like your response on how your enjoying yourself too much at the moment, ha ha ha. I can't wait for the next person to harass me with regards to why i haven't brought a man home for them to meet then i can come out with your line. Good one.
    All in God's perfect timing!

  5. That Eurostar, I have already marked it down. Glad your summer is going well. Will look towards the pics.
