I went to take Kitty to the vet this morning. As I was waiting downstairs of our apartment building for my Grab driver, the skies decided to open and spew forth a whole heap of rain. When the driver arrived, I started whinging to him about how I didn’t bring an umbrella with me. So when we got to the vet clinic, he was actually nice enough to give me his umbrella. I felt sooo bad taking the umbrella, as I would’ve survived the 20 metres from the car to the entrance without it, and I knew the chances were slim that I’d need it on the way home, as torrential rain hardly ever lasts for more than 10-15 minutes in SG. But he insisted. When I got home later, I tried ringing the Grab hotline to see if there was a way to give it back to him, but the customer service officer actually spoke to him and he told her to tell me to keep it. Arghhh! So that was a very kind gesture that I received this morning, which I definitely want to pay forward one day.
And while I was on my way to the vet, the designer of my new Ballroom dress sent me his sketch of the proposed dress.
It’s so niiice! I’m so happy with it 😊 It’s simple yet elegant, and will match my Latin dress wonderfully, all of which was what I had requested from him. I’m starting to get excited about it now, after having (mostly) gotten over the shock of having paid so much for the deposit! 😂
And then the rest of my “usual” day worked out well too: I had perhaps my only good trading day this entire week; and I also had a good session at the gym later in the evening, lifting heavier weights for the most part and also still getting my dance basics done on the treadmill 👍
I finished off the day with the season five Christmas special of Downton Abbey. It was a good episode, happier than most, but it was Christmas when it was released, so I suppose they didn’t want to make it too depressing 😆
I couldn’t have asked for a better way to finish the work week 😊
