Going home for christmas

I'm going home tomorow after work. Hooray! when i went to america in september i was looking through all my grandparents old photo albums.  I found this old photo of my house as well as a letter my mum sent them when she was pregnant with me.  It was nice,   christmas day is the rare time when my sister and i spend time with both my mum and dad, because my mum is the only person who lives full time in this house now.


My Favourite sweets at the moment are these japanese daifuku filled with mung beans.  My mum makes nice filipino sweets with mung beans called hopia the ube variety are the best.  MY favourite filipino sweet though is Biko, its a sticky rice cake made with coconut milk and sugar, its best made with dark brown sugar.  GO EAT SOME! ^_^

Sewing and wearing that good ole jumper

This bird looks a bit crap on here
Yesterday i was watching BBC iplayer, i watched that drama about Margot Fonteyn. I didnt realise she danced till her 60's!!!

When i was little i had ballet lessons, my teacher would always get me to play piano in front of all the other girls. She use to say to me "Practise your ballet like you practise your piano" i never did, who knows i could've been a prima ballerina.....................dreams halo halo dreams

I just cant get enough of this jumper!

Its warm and cosy and makes me smile which is good, I've been a bit sad recently. I miss a friend who moved a way quite a lot and my Lola recently died so i need comfort! Today is 40 days since my Lola died, and I'm going home, apparently its important I'm not up to scratch with all my Filipino traditions but it will be nice to see my ma i haven't seen her for a month!!!

Yesterday when i called her she nearly said Lolo and Lola when she was telling me what my Lolo was up too. It was strange, since she died i haven't been able to take it in. Maybe its because we live so far away and we don't get to see my mums family that often, maybe because when we saw her for the last time in September it was like it wasn't her anymore.
