Whoa Dj, i'm okay! Was not this morning though - got really nervy, fell down and scraped my knees so badly, i can hardly move. So am sitting in front of comp, enjoying your company.

Tomorrow is the school sports. I'm supposed to do reception duty...[W]. We, the outgoing class, were planning to watch the opening and closing, and leave for lunch during the events. Let's see if my knees decide to behave by then...

Cheers,

- Joy.
