Was it the wine last night that made me unable to sleep peacefully? I only had 3 hours of sleep and the wind outside wasn’t helping me too much. I even googled “how to sleep quickly” for some tips and it advised me to play some puzzle games. Maybe I should’ve drank honey – that usually works.
So when I woke up, it wasn’t a surprise that I was too tired to even go outside for a walk. It was cold too. I caught up on some dramas just before the swimming came on. I guess this is when my patriotism comes through. Swimming is the only sport I watch for the Olympics and I have to say, I’m super proud of us. Despite what happened yesterday, sports actually bring us together and showcase our mateship. Plus, we won GOLD! I hope we can continue to climb up the leaderboard especially after the ladies beat their world record for the 100m freestyle relay this morning!
After swimming, I spent some time lesson planning for the week so I can spend more time marking during the day. I honestly need to see if there’s a way I can beat the system so I don’t spend arduous hours marking students’ work. Perhaps there is no better way?
But after my productive morning, I managed to take a short nap which was truly helpful for my eyes. I woke up feeling even more refreshed than I was this morning and it was time for dinner! I made pad see ew with the sauce packet I bought from Woollies the other day and it was quite scrumptious. I had a lot of leftover beef mince so I decided to use it to make more meatballs since my previous batch worked quite well.
The oven rang just in time as I had a long video catch-up with the girls. It is honestly so nice to see their faces again and to just talk like there’s no tomorrow. I hope it will be normal soon. Let’s use our brains and be better humans everyone 🙂
