Don't you love going to visit a friend and feeling really comfortable and relaxed in their home? Scarlett and I went to visit my former workmate and her husband and son today. It was lovely going to a house where the parents were relaxed about child noise and drama, the house was child friendly and we both just had a lovely time. It was hard to get Scarlett to leave.
We love living in Singapore but it can be a little isolating. As a SAHM who is not here on an amazing expat package I can't always keep up with the neighbours. We have a lovely life but I don't have a helper and I don't have huge wads of discretionary income to spend on babysitters and other such activities. It was nice to spend time with a couple in the same position. It can be hard to remember that life here is a bit removed from reality for many expats.
I had hoped to be able to share some pages of my mini album today but the light is not flash and I think I may need my assistant to help me work out how to hold all the pages open. I am about halfway through and am really enjoying remembering the few days away. It was a real holiday.
Here are a couple of photos from the trip to give you an idea of why we enjoyed it so much.

Now I am feeling a bit homesick!
