I’ve long expected that this holiday would not excuse me from doing my paperworks. It’s Christ’s Ascension Day holiday for both work offices and schools. I was supposed to be work-free but the nature of my job obliged me to do my duty at home even on this non-working holiday. But I’m glad I’m almost done checking the exams and the grades should be ready next week, thank God for this. Should I be in church because it’s Christ’s Ascension Day? As far as I know, there’s only one Catholic Church in this city and as far as I can remember, I’ve gone to that church twice since I arrived here. I’ve become an indolent Catholic and if you ask me if I believe in God, my answer would be the same as the Swedish people’s answer would be – yes, somewhere. I wouldn’t have the faintest idea what they mean with this but when I say this myself, it would mean somewhere in my inner self is a reflection that I believe in God. It wasn’t my intention to write about my belief. I was actually thinking to share this palatable potato dish that hubby would oftentimes request me to do. And today is not an exception. Sometimes I refuse when he asks me cos it takes half an hour in the oven, but when he peels the potato himself and everything’s ready, I’m it. So here it is!

I’ve been busy on my work table and in my kitchen today. Tomorrow is a working day between two public holidays or the day we called “sandwich day” (lol!) and should also be a holiday for most, but my administrators have given us extra training day. The students are lucky enough to have a long weekend starting today. It’s too late to complain now, the plans have already been set-up. I anticipate this half-day training will give us more paperworks before school ends.
