Reading "pleasure"

I'm planning to read more and before me I've already lined up books hoping to deligently read them. Yesterday evening while Emily is still napping, I took out my book, found a nice spot, rested my feet on the foot stool and started reading.... while still at the same page, Michelle came running and started to barge into my comfort zone. I pleaded with her to let me read for half an hour and we could play badminton thereafter. She agreed and decided to take a book and sat beside me.

She started reading aloud, by then I was quite annoyed and could not concentrate..then she started to ask me every single word that she's not familiar with...... you guess... yeah I gave up, I end up listening to her reading and correcting her pronunciation..... by the time she finished with her reading, Emily woke up and it's time for the promised badminton session......

I actually envy mothers who find time to read.... I guessed I have to resort reading in the toilet while doing my daily business... but then again do you think they will leave me alone, No! They won't leave this mummy alone, Emily has the habit of coming into my room, knocked the bathroom's door and asked repeatedly what I was doing! Kids...

Ha ha I'm flying again tomorrow, will take the opportunity to read then, as for tonight I will stick like superglue to my girls!
