Rainy weekend and army call up

It’s monday again, and after a weekend that was part catch up and part chill out, I still can’t help but wish it was Saturday all over again.

For those not familiar with Singapore, all males are required to do national service in one of the defence forces until they are about 40. Dearest had a call up on the weekend which involved dropping whatever he was doing, going home and getting into his uniform, and tearing across to the other side of the island to get his name checked off and listen to a 15 min briefing. All in the name of national security. Having typed all that and griping about what a pain in the butt it was, given the situation in this day and age, it’s probably a good thing.

Oh well… Lunch break over. Teaching tonight. And guess what – it’s raining again!
