That’s the sound around here for this month.
I do have posts to write. I have reports to share – I haven’t shared any of my September reports, for starters. But it’s just been a bit tough around here.
We started the month with school holidays which usually means I actively take time away from my computers for that digital detox. That was planned, and non-sinister. But halfway through the school holidays, we received news that my husband’s grandmother had passed and that started the whirlwind that we are still trying to recover from now. We flew back to Singapore the very next day and while we were in the midst of that funeral, we received news that my own grandmother had also passed. You might appreciate how much of a turmoil that threw us into. More flights, more time off work and another funeral. We are physically and mentally exhausted. I kept up with expenditure tracking as much as possible, but many of our monthly financial plans were thrown out the window (there was hardly any cooking and a lot of eating out / eating random food). I must admit to not feeling terribly bad about it either. Sometimes it’s all we can do to just survive.
I hope to be back with proper posts next week. I just need a bit of time to get my head screwed back on.
