I jolted out of sleep, one hand on J2, on his bed. It had been a night of interruptions, as J2 woke up twice and had to be pat back to sleep.
I glanced at my watch and realised it was 6.40am. 😱😱😱 Late! And everyone had just woke up…. maybe the weather was just too cooling last night. 😆
There goes… my ‘grand’ breakfast plans were dashed, especially that of my hubby’s and mine, which required some form of cooking over the stove. That wasn’t the part that worried me; I had to quickly get it all out by the next 5 minutes before hubby left for work, and for my boys to eat (before J1 misses the school bus).
Never mind the type of breakfast, I told myself, survival mode now. As long as there’s breakfast packed, I’m done for the first meal. So I took out an already prepared overnight oat sealed mug, hurried to boil water for my Kopi-O, zoomed to get bread and peanut butter out, to spread for hubby and J2, prepared the Kopi-O, before stir frying egg, bacon and spinach for myself. 😅 Thank God, I managed to, and breakfast was dished out and snapped up before we hurried for the school bus.
What a close shave!
Learnt that it’s important to have an already prepared breakfast ready at some corner of the house in future, just in case of a late wake up day like today.
I need to get these items always ready:
1) overnight oats in fridge
2) loaf of bread with peanut butter to stand by (if there is time to prepare something decent)
3) fresh finger fruit such as berries or apricots
4) UHT packet milk
5) nuts such as almond or macadamia
At the moment, these are probably what I can think of, for a grab and go breakfast.
Breakfast is so important as it’s the breaking of a long night’s fast, so it has got to be nutrient packed. However when time is not on our side, we still try to ingest something so as not to starve ourselves till break time or when time permits.
Ok, this signals something… I had better sleep early tonight to avoid another episode tomorrow.😆
