Monday Flood! Freebies for you

Yes, I work up this morning and made sure I left the apartment before 7am. On rainy days it is very difficult to catch a cab to work. I got to school and the surrounding areas were already showing signs of blocked pipes. Then I realised (30mins later) school was cancelled, but by then, the teachers that came in later told me the water rose to their calf and teachers who are shorter told me it reaches their thighs!! I knew I was trapped at school and I guess I would wait until the flood subsided. 6 hours later, after lunch, I barged out barefooted wanted to be home in the cozy bed, I thought how lucky I was as I caught a cab right away. Little did I know I was stuck in the traffic for almost 2 hours (2km only!)

I told the cabbie, "That's it I am getting out and walking back." He gave me an apologetic chuckle and pointed me the way that headed towards my apartment. Of course I knew I couldn't walk home, it would probably take me another 2 hours, as I could have gotten lost too. I have never walked home!

Again, as I prayed, I saw a motorcycle 'taxi' and we wheeled pass rows of honking cars and shouting men! (and women) I got home and was in a very bad mood.

Now 4 hours later, I feel better, showered and disinfected myself (flood water unthinkable bacteria!!!) I think I will give away my Japanese Candy Alpha today.

It's not my perfect work, in fact it's my first alpha. But I used it in my LO, loved it! They are the Japanese Candies I took when I was holidaying in Tokyo. THey are very bright and cute and one day, I thought that will be cool to have some alphas for my Japan Holiday Scrapbooking. So I made it.

I hope you like it. I love it and so did my scrap buddy Susan!

Have a good Monday and Tuesday! No freebies for this Tuesday and Wednesday, I will be busy.
