Last week has been a super busy one for me, both at work and at home.
Work-wise, January is our financial year-end and quarter-end. Needless to say, we’re all rushing for shipments to meet our revenue target. Chinese New Year is also around the corner. We had to work with our Taiwan, China and Hong Kong subcontractors for overtime manpower support during the CNY holiday.
In addition, it’s THAT time of the year again to submit our performance self-review and objective setting for this year. How much bonus that we’ll get this coming April will depend on how well we write-up our self-review. So, we’ve to think thoroughly and report all our accomplishments – and also start to think of what we want to achieve this year.
I’m glad that I’ve submitted mine last night.
Last weekend, I’ve been doing a fair bit of spring cleaning around the house. It’s that time of the year to declutter again (OK, more on throwing away than declutter!). I’ve five boxes of old clothes that belong to our boy, which I don’t know what to do with them.
Initially, I wanted to throw them away. But when I looked at them again, I recalled the moments of my baby boy wearing these clothes. I even have some pictures of him wearing them. Look at this!
Argh, I simply can’t bear to part with his baby clothes because of their sentimental values. So once again, I decided to keep them. I put them all into vacuum-seal storage bags and moved away the boxes. They really save a lot of storage space for me. His wardrobe looks way neater too.
On the other hand, I threw out quite a number of my old clothes. Some of them are relatively new and in good condition. I passed a huge bag of them to my hubby’s colleague who has just married a Vietnamese wife. I’m glad that he is willing to take these clothes because it’s really a waste to dump them.
I changed all the bed sheets and washed them. Luckily, the weather was great and all the sheets dried up within a day. Now, I’m left with just our store room – which I plan to declutter this Friday after work.
By this Saturday, I’ll be all ready to celebrate the Chinese New Year! Yay!
