Among the books Junie and I read together in the summer holidays, there are two books that touched my heart. The theme of the books is war and occupation. Both books are from the the perspective of the civilians who are trying hard to live through the days of occupation-their homelands being occupied.
I am thankful that we are living in peace and safety. May God look after the people who are suffering from wars….
This book definitely took away the weight War and Peace put on my shoulders. It is light and humorous. I learnt a lot about the the life of the British 100 years ago, in the suburban area, I believe. It also presents differences of the values of the young and the old and also then and now.
What shall I read next?
J has not been feeing well and so we had a quiet afternoon. Playing w paper clay at home.
There was not much work from school. So we went out to get some fresh air.
The weather was so agreeing that I had to spend my morning sitting out. 🙂
Very nice weather today. And it’s Friday!
Yumcha-ed with my friends. We were working in the same organisation 10 years ago. They are very nice ladies.

J is back to school, after two months’ rest. Let’s have a great year ahead.
We went to Hanoi in March. Singpore in June. Portugal and Barcelona in July. It’s time to sit down and organise the travel photos.
