My domestic helper had returned to her kampong (for good) on Sat. She has been with us for 3 years. Baked this Lime Cream Cheese Cake for her to bring back to her family.
I have since been promoted (or demoted) to be the royal maid of this royal family (as what I've always said to my friends).
I must have been enjoying life too much for the past 3 years and have lost the ability to do housework. Either that, or my helper has been a fantastic worker. During the first two days of resuming my royal duties, I can only think of a word to describe my life - HECTIC. Yesterday I have been working non-stop from 7:30am till 6pm. Today, not much difference either. I am beginning to wonder whether the rest of my life will be the same every single day! Do not be mistaken, I'm not complaining. I'm just thinking there must be something not quite right with me. I can't seem to finish the chores everyday despite working almost full day.
This is what I've done today. Maybe you can help identify my problem. Just don't ask me to hire another helper ;)
