Every weekends in the holiday, I would ask: any new ones on LMS, how much you have completed.
Previous weekend: You sure no more homework, all done and in your sch bag, no missing ones ah?

Then yesterday afternoon told me just a bit.

That just a bit lasted from yesterday afternoon to last night 10pm and continued this morning.

That just a bit was not as easy to do as he originally thought would be.

i ask the same questions every year...without fail, he will tell me, 'done. all finished.'

then when i asked if he has prepared for the new school year, he would get panicky and tell me, 'oh no, i haven't finished xx subject! but it's very little. can be done.'
and that 'can be done' can stretch over 2-3 days because it is not simple.

Each year when I take down the curtains in the study room, I will place a piece of cardboard on hubby's hifi set to partially block out the sun. This year I did not do so as the cardboard (kept in the utility room) has a line of lizard's poo. So this year no cover.

On Sat night, I left my phone to charge over night, it was left with 8% battery.

I woke up on Sun morning around 6am to surf ksp and realised there was no wifi signal which was very unusual. To my "horror", there was a short circuit. I went to check the DB box, one main switch was down and unable to turn on.

So I went down to the overnight guard house and a lady guard followed me back home to check. She turned off the individual switches, turned on each again one by one with a pause in between. Come to switch 19, the main switch popped off.

So we left switch 19 off and was able to bring back electrical supply to the house.

After she left, I went around to find out which appliances use switch 19.

By now, you should guess that it is the hifi set, right?

Question now: how do I break the news to hubby?

there was a short circuit in the whole house caused by the hi-fi set.
fortunately the electrical supply was returned. should we do anything about it? is it still usable?

nothing unusual, happens on my side too, few days before school reopens.

Happened last night! Got back from MIL place & DS comes out from his room saying got EL homework. I asked him on Friday if there was any homework and he said no. Now suddenly, he says got. But luckily done most of it. Thankfully, he only had a page left to go.

:frustrated:
