♥ Something Brown ♥

I would certainly say that I've been a shopaholic this year. Yes I confess..*wink* I suppose most of the women are, aren't we ladies? (smile) Something brown, that's my shopping passion theme this year. hehe..Perhaps I could share to you my top 3 Something brown purchases this year..*wink*

♥♥♥♥♥
I love bags, even though I have plenty of it I still want more! hehe.. I was able to convinced my hunny to get me one when we went for our Christmas shopping. I know he doesn't understand why I wanted more bags..but never mind, it's a girl thing hunny! *wink*

Ilang beses ko tiningnan ang presyo kung tama ba, pwede bang mabura, oh kaya ko ba ng bulsa..In the end I got it, pikit mata kung sinwipe and card ko..Ok lang minsan lang naman! *wink*

Last Touch of Summer

Finally I got some time to sit down and do my blogging. Although I had days off from work, this DIY job in our house kept us occupied most of the time. Anyway it's time for me to post my usual favourite weekly meme entry.

These photos were taken @ Danson Park in Bexleyheath, England during the last month of summer

Sunset

Hop along, run around, build sand castle and go swimming that's what I used to do when I was a kid. In this beautiful beach I could almost grasp and kiss the sunset..

Slowly it bids goodbye

Reminding you that the day is over

And slowly it disappears so you could rest your weary mind

Sofa for our New House

One of the things that we need to get when we move to our new house is a sofas *wink*I've seen a few on-line, in magazines and catalogues. There are different types of sofas depending on what you want and what you can afford. A fabric sofa that you can choose in any colour you want, leather ones, sofa beds, corner sofas or the recliner ones. The more comfortable, the more expensive I suppose..lol. I find it hard to choose cos most of the ones I like are so expensive! grrrr ... (always the case!). Anyway here are some of the sofa's I like @ dfs sofas on-line

WE Need D.I. Y. Skills

The thought of finally moving to our own house soon excites me a lot. But nevertheless the refurbishment thought worries me a little bit cos of the few things we need to get to make the house habitable for us. And of course watching those property development program here, I am well aware of the cost and mind you it is expensive! I have a bit of experience with house refurbishment as I did it once when hunny and I renovated our house in the Philippines so we have our own place when he visits me. But although that's the case, the costs of the materials here, furniture's and especially the labour of builders or plumbers are more expensive than it is in the Philippines. And so because of that, people here are more on D.I.Y (Do it Yourself) when they are renovating their houses, unless there's major renovation that's when they get builders or plumbers. In our case we might need the skills of a plumber to do our dated bathroom and wc. That's the very first thing we are keen to do before moving. I always have this weird dream being trapped in a filthy bathroom or toilet, and I tell it's always a nightmare for me. So I told my hunny I can live with anything, dated kitchen and wallpapers but not a filthy toilets/bathroom! We have a lot to tackle but with the bathroom and wc renovated, the rest are all DIY skills which I hope my husband I will learn as we go along the work. Might ask some friends help and of course my in-law/ parents in-law are here to help us (bless). Hopefully there would be no major renovations aside from the bathroom and wc downstairs, and we will have enough money to fund the refurbishment. toink! Sana may mag donate na charity..nyahaha! Gusto ko kasi e renovate and buong house talaga, and take note we have to buy sofas, tv, dining table etc. I noticed kasi interior designing is one of my passion..totoo *wink*. May mga nag donate na, and thanks to you all..Sana meron pa..hehe. Sana the DIY book that we bought will be a good guide for us learning our DIY skills...We offer this plans to you oh Lord..Thank you sa blessings!

♥ God..Thank you! ♥

Photo from Google
 Things are slowly falling into place for us now I should say. 18 months ago I came here in England as my hunny's fiancée and as today we have been married for 1 year, 4 months, 4 weeks & 1 day. From a fiancée visa to spouse visa and then next year a permanent leave to remain. Not long enough to a British passport..*wink*.  From being unemployed to getting a job in the field I am passionate of..Nursing. And just as I thought I'm not gonna find any Filipino friends at all, now I've got loads! (smile). Dear me, I remember how resentful and pessimistic I was in my first months here. But here you go, it just takes time to get used of things, courage and determination to make it happen. I realised, you have to take risk if you want to learn and achieve something. Just as I took my first bus and train ride alone, risks was what it was all to me. And that risk I took gave me courage that I can do things on my own, getting a bus and train..easy pissy! haha..That's how amazing God guided me all the way from the beginning of my life here in England.
And now He has given us another blessing, a house that we will soon make a home. Yes indeed, not long now and we will have our own house. After all the dilemmas and stress from looking at houses and applying the mortgage, at last we are now in the final stage of purchase. Father in-law had just transferred the deposit to the sellers solicitor this afternoon. Hunny will post tomorrow the contract that we've signed last night. So I guess not a long wait now and we can have the key and so we can move (smile). I am so happy and feel so blessed for all these wonderful things that's happening in my life.The chance to visit my family back in the Philippines last October was a great joy to me..Thank you God, thank you hunny ♥. !8 months ago I said, the best is yet to come and here it is..I am so grateful. May God continue to bless us on our future plans with our family and ourselves.  Although I chose to live a million miles away from my family, he surrounded me with wonderful people that would love and care for me. A big thank You to my parents in-law for making this happen..helping us getting our first house. We love you, and we will make sure to visit you always..we won't miss the Sunday roast ;) *wink* hehe... xx

God..Thank You
