Things to do when you are bored – Day 32

This would be the last day I am bored, my wife and kids are coming back today. I woke up early to have breakfast and prepare some bread packed with ham and cheese for my wife and kids. Then I went to the airport to pick them up. The flight arrived on time at 6 AM. And I get to the airport at about 7 AM. Circle around until my wife called me, and just in time to pick them up in front of the hotel.

My son was throwing up after he went to sleep. Daughter was ok, chatty as usual. I get her to do her abacus homework. I did a few things while they are asleep :

1. Reported a few succulents

2. Take down one of our Christmas lights and fix the lights as most of them are rusty due to being immersed in the gutter.
