Wind, Wind Go Away....
It's been very windy for the past 2 days now, the same strong wind I'm sure that battered Britain in the last few days. I read on Yahoo that some people got killed by falling trees while others were injured. All these were reported in Britain, I have yet to hear of any casualties in the Netherlands. I woke up at 4 am on Wednesday morning to the sound of these fierce howling wind, it sounded so eerie that I was actually scared to go to the bathroom!!! What a weather to start the new year!!! My Dear Son began his first day for the new term on Wednesday, I was actually tempted to call the teacher and said "I'm sorry Ilham couldn't come to school today because his mother is not feeling well.... it's the wind you see... it makes her sick!! " Imagine what Mrs Jannsen would say to that!!!! Mr Porrit (the head teacher) would soon circulate a letter of warning to every parents (or rather a parent like me) to send their children to school NO MATTER what, unless they are SICK (and regardless if it is the mother who WAS sick!!!) Honestly, I was not sick, I was just feeling lazy.... To his credit, my DS was so impatient to go to school again, no doubt looking forward to play football at recess time.... and not because he misses his school :D
This windy weather seems to be occuring so much lately. I did not recall it being this windy last year when we first moved to The Hague. Three weeks ago, it was so windy that I felt scared to sleep in the bedroom. DH was back in Malaysia for a meeting, so it was only me and DS. We decided to sleep in the living room instead. I hope this weather condition will soon be over, I'm actually tired of fighting against the wind to go to school to pick DS up. Even grocery shopping gets much difficult with the bags decided to fly up and away in the wind !!!
