Books, Crafts And Stuff

Mommy got this as a gift from Small Kucing mommy, the Mama Kucing when we met up last Thursday together with the HHBC members. Thank you again Meow!

She camped at the Big Bad Wolf Books Sale (BBW) and got quite a loot, I think.
We finally went to BBW sale on Saturday night and were there from 10pm - 12am. Not too long there, because Mommy couldn't really find the books that interest her (i.e. running related books) and Mommy got to wake up at 4am to get ready for Sunday LSD with a group doing the Malakoff simulation run afterwards. The crowd wasn't too bad that time, and the queue at the cashier was short too.
 In the end, Mommy got herself one (just one!) book.
and Raimie got himself these. Drawing and arts & crafts books for him. Tried to buy some nice "reading" book for him but he wasn't interested and Mommy didn't want to force it on him.

Anyway, it's OK. If he's good at his studies and he is good with his hands too, he can be like Uncle SK when he grows up. ^^
Just look at what Uncle SK got for Mommy and the rest of HHBC gang!
Raimie been "busy" doing this lately. Mommy doesn't mind. Do you now Hercule Poirot had been written stacking tower of cards while trying to solve a mystery? It requires focus, concentration and a steady hand no to mention patience. All those traits that Mommy would love Raimie to have.
and this, his latest completed project. Ok, maybe nothing much for you guys out there, but this boy never attended an art class. He doesn't get much help from Mommy and Daddy too (he doesn't want our help anyway), other than us getting him supplies and what he learn, he got it from watching TV so I give him an A for effort. :-)

    1. Do revision a bit. Do arts n crafts a bit. Watched TV a lot. Played games a lot too. Not as much running around ad mommy would like him to do.

      Well, nothing much and nothing exciting for his school holiday.

    1. I think you'll be ready to re-mortgage your house! Not that the books are expensive. Just imagine books being sold at 75-90% of retail price. @.@

      No, not grumpy holidays in Japan but I am a grumpy old lady myself at other times i.e. when not in Japan. xD
