I would like to thank everyone that I have met and become friends in the bloggingland Thank You very much for all the advice, support and encouraging words. It made me very happy and got through my problems a lot easier. Although, I sometime cannot release all my stress with gardening because I am coop up in school, visiting other blogs help lessen the stress. I received many nice surprises this year in our mail box from around the world and like to say Thank You.
We will start with the closest place from our little garden.
Berry & Veggie Gnomes that have given me so many things for the garden (So hard to say no to them).
Many thanks for many beautiful flower seeds from Catmint.
Joyce author of My Little Potted Garden~ Thank you for your support letter and kind words when we were going through Rayyan surgery phase.
Autumn Belle~ I will try to be a better cook learning new recipe from your gift and study smarter with the lovely tag.
Kwee Peng ~ Thank you for a very early Birthday wish;-).
Starting from here, we will travel to countries that have first time visit our mail box and we were so excited.
At first I was shocked to see why are the stamps missing. Did not know that my husband was secretly collecting stamps.
I received an envelope from Mr. H & Mrs. H (author of Subsistence Pattern), who has been my inspiration on collecting our own home-saved seeds since we started gardening in Adelaide. So happy on receiving so many seeds that I can't wait to sow this month. I let the photo do the talking, see the yellow tape.
CANADALucky! I did not know that my name automatically entered Laura's give-away and won. What a lovely give-away presents. Laura have a very big heart and always cheer people up with her wonderful e-mails.Those teddies was not originally in the give-away. But she included them for Rayyan and Ilhan.
Rayyan was so happy having a new friend for him to play.
I am happy that at this moment since Rayyan is born. He is in his very best form and health.
But, I guess I wear myself out...hit rock bottom.
In this coming August, it will be 3 years since I started my studies for PhD in Science program as a full-time research student. I was in a very nervous state last Thursday because Rayyan had appoinment with his dietician. Hoping that Rayyan did not lose so much weight after the surgery and he don't need to put on nasalgastro tiub again. So happy that he actually put on weight and the dietician was happy with how things are going for him. Yeah!Bye-bye nasalgastro tiub. The realisation of that I have only a few months to complete my research and think about writing my thesis made me stress, hit me hard on Thursday morning. A friend encouragement to me, that I would never have imagine before that I managed to survive studying my PhD up till now after all sort of a problem that I have been through. I did think of giving it up after Rayyan was born but I do know that I will hate myself for giving up and will come a lot of IF thinking later. Meeting up with my supervisor also help to clear up my mind as well with all those doubts that I am having. I was kind of surprise that he actually thinks that I am on track in finishing up my PhD, on top of having problems and burden which is not usual for a full-time research student to manage.
I should feel encourage.
Have more confidant and faith on myself.
What am I thinking?After I gone through alternating spending time in school and hospital.
Take a deep breath, I can do it.
