Unfocused & Angklung

This week in Paardje’s life … I wish I had a lot to share, I’ve been worrying about not blogging enough but, truth be told, I am just unfocused and dazed 😴 🙄 I guess it comes with the 31 weeks preggers territory.  All I’ve been doing as of late is play games on my Kindle, read other blogs, sleep (a lot!) and read up about breastfeeding.

I feel very huge and cumbersome now.  I don’t feel much for going outside because aside from feeling like a hippo and looking like a hippo (in my generally shapeless 3rd tri maternity wear), I tire quite easily.

I have been “forced” to get out this week though.  The school my daughter attends had a formal opening of their new school building and, for the occasion, she had to learn how to play this beautiful Indonesian bamboo musical instrument – recognized by UNESCO as a “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” – called Anklung.

I’m so proud of B1! 😍😍😍

And for some reason, I just can’t help but get teary-eyed with this. 😢 Really. I mean, I can’t even get through the first few notes without threatening to bawl! 😭😭😭
