Camouflage my glass door

posted by constance

I need to. Camouflage my entrance which is made of glass. I don’t like uninvited guests. Even the occasional postman who didn’t bother to ring the door bell and just come up to my door unit. Now I make it a point to lock the door below. But what I want is to get some planters tall enough to cover part of the staircase that leads up my unit. Perhaps wire planters that has hanging wires long enough to suspend down from the entrance and some that has a stand would be a good trick. I have a door curtain at the top to hide unwelcome eyes already…

Maybe I should make a visit to the nursery to get these planters and perhaps to seek out some nice planters for Christmas and welcome the New Year with a fresh green plant too

Quiet Days at Work

posted by constance

Business is rather dull lately. Maybe it’s because many people have all left or gone on holidays.. How many of you have or are going on a holiday? We can’t because there are so many things going on for my family and I this December. There is an urgency to settle the leak on one of the wall that was affected since end of August.. We are just so unlucky that a new neighbour who had just bought the next unit is now in a legal tussle with my unit landlord… it’s a long story and I am just too lazy to elaborate.

The other thing is that now that my daughter had completed her PSLE, we have to be around at least this week for the school posting results and register at the choice of school the following day. That means, lots of money is needed as we will need to get new uniforms and textbooks and all the school necessity.. Thereafter, school bags, school shoes all of which have worn out or spoilt and not bought before school ended in mid Nov..

Guess I will be burnng a big hole soon.. So, how can I have enough for a holiday? sigh..
