A Long July

I have been unwell almost the most of June. For a while it was just me, then it was the whole family. Simon at one time was knocking my office door several times a week, only to be told by the rest of the gang that I have not been around for a while. It has taken me some time to explain, what’s with me and my winter blues, and then the whole family and me being humbled by the weather. It was not a pretty sight and sound đŸ˜¦ Only one (of several) kind of reason make sense, and I was sure he was not expecting this particular reason I am giving him. He took it very well, though. And then I am left to proof to him that I can do this regardless.
So then come July…one the longest I’ve felt for in ages. It’s the 15th today and I spent 11 of them at the office, working! A feat I have never been able to establish before, mostly due to Aliyah’s school schedule. I was hoping next year by the time she enrols into formal schooling and us moving out to a new home, there will be some form of order in my weekly schedule.

My two and a half chapters have finally taken shape. Another feat I thought will never materialized. Anyway, Simon brought me back to ground with his meticulous ‘bad cop’ style editing. It will take ages to satisfy him and I admit now that having those chapters is just another long journey towards my PhD. But he knows I am on borrowed time, and I am sure eventually a line needs to be drawn somewhere. ‘The most perfect’ is only ALLAH…and regardless my flight has already been booked. Lompat tikam here I comes…anyone needs an Aussie Fridge magnet?
