What A Way To Start My Leave...

Today marks the beginning of my leave until end of the year. But when I got up this morning, I was not feeling too well. I told myself, "Oh No! This is not the way to begin my year end leave!"

Well - technically, I am not on any holiday. My annual leave means that I don't have to go in the office, and I can work from home. There are heaps of things to do before Christmas - the copy-editor from T&T Clark has some queries on my manuscript that I need to attend to; preparation of lectures for next semester's class (I will be teaching Romans for the first time); brochures for Edinburgh 2010 to design, and a few papers to mark.

Well, to cut the story short, my good doctor friend to me to stay in bed for the next 2 days. Let's hope I get better before this weekend. I have to preach this Sunday - and I need to get back to "work"!

Dear Florence,
It's not the busy schedule - it's a combination of few factors...haha

Thanks for wishes

Thanks, JW.

Well - the only leave I really know is the 1-month research leave I had in Singapore! The rest of the leave is actually working leave.

What to do - serving 2 'employers'..haha

Thanks for wishes.

well, i've just heard from a chiropractor on "how to stay healthy thru' the year end," and i figured out that one of the reasons of people getting sick during holiday seasons is too much eating. Also, people eat very unhealthy food.
watch out for too much "makan!"

This young man needs a strong and godly wife to ensure he rests and does not do any work.

I think doctor's orders won't have sufficient sway on this man with fire in his bones.

Hi Florence,

I don't think it has anything to do with the diet... :-)

Hi Blogpastor,

I am still waiting to hear from Maria! :-)
