We've Got the Date!

Finally after all the hard work, packing and sorting out necessary things to make our move in to reality, and postponing many times, at last we've got the date! 27th of April 2012..oh yes, the date is tomorrow! *wink*
Hunny booked a van to rent yesterday and we are going to have it tomorrow from 8am to 5pm. Yes indeed tomorrow is an early start for us. Good breakfast tomorrow is essential as we have a heavy day ahead. We have to have plenty of energy to sustain us from all the moving,carrying and lifting heavy furnitures.
After that unpacking and sorting out is the next thing, so our weekend will be fairly busy. After tonight we are officially at 8 Makenade Avenue and not 5 Well Close no more..it will be a bit strange at first but I hope we'll settle quickly.
I feel happy that finally we are moving to our own place but at the same time sad as I will miss my parents in-law. I know we are not gonna move that far and seeing them wont be a problem at all, but I mean the usual stuff we are doing together. Like playing card games at night, my MIL's cooking, the laughter, the good pudding, the luxury of having different flavour ice cream (lol), lots of things.
Anyway I/we will make sure we are going to visit them often, I'll be calling my MIL often as well for some food advice and of course we'll make sure we wont miss the Sunday roast that often.*wink*

How about you guys what are you up to this weekend? Whatever you do, enjoy and have a happy weekend!

Bedroom Furnitures

Three weeks ago my husband ordered 3 bedroom furniture from B&Q and was delivered last Monday. Delivery date was a good timing as it was my day off, hubby took a day off as well so we could assemble the furniture straight away. I was excited as moving soon looks rather more promising..*wink*
Here are some photos we took while assembling our free-standing wardrobe and 2 chest of drawers:

Here's the 3 long boxes of our wardrobe and 2 small boxes for the 2 chest of drawers to be assembled...

Here's the excited owner looking or rather holding the instructions manual..lol

We decided to assemble the chest of drawers first as they don't seem to be as heavy as the wardrobe. It was a good first experienced and warmed us up in assembling the wardrobe..

Here's my hunny so engrossed of his assembling job..hehe

Time for a pose hun! *wink*

And there you go..the finish piece! Hooray! 

Next Mission, assembling the wardrobe! All the pieces ready but the man who's going to assemble it looks rather bemused..Long screwing ei?! Not to worry we'll ask another help from mum..lol

The manual said it needs 2 persons to assemble it but we reckon 3 is more sensible. Here's the first bit..looks promising ei?

We managed to stand it between the 3 of us and that lamp up there was a nuisance!

We are getting there, hunny is assembling the mirror bit..

And here's the nearly finished wardrobe..just need to fit the door tomorrow. We ran out of time and energy..lol

It was a good fun though and I enjoyed it a lot. Any furniture to assemble out there?Nyahaha! xx

Packing

Packing...one of the things you need to do when you're moving out. Rather tedious than I expected let alone I have to do most of it myself. I have started packing last week some of my husband's old stuff, my bags and some books. We still have plenty of things to pack still like our clothes and some more heavy stuff like furniture but yeah we are getting there.

Mr. Google photo
Although I am not very good in packing things as my patience runs pretty quickly doing this. I hate "fitting all of the stuff in one box" part, that's why every time we travel or go somewhere my hunny does most of the packing himself  (lucky me). In fairness to him, it is one of the many things he's good at *wink*. He knows where to put stuff and he has loads of patience in finding spaces.hehe..Me, I am more interested in unpacking!harhar..
But this time I am determined to do most of the packing myself on my day off's. I don't enjoy it much in all honesty but seeing all our stuff packed soon means moving to our own house is fairly soonish.. *wink*

Happy Weekend!

DIY Dilemma

google photo
After 2 exhausting days at work I was glad Wednesday came, my day off. Although I still have to wake up early (means before 10am..lol) I'm glad I'm somewhere not from work. *wink*. We started our day later than we anticipated. Mama got on-line a bit late so we didn't leave till after 12pm. 
We arrived in our house just in time for lunch and the plumber to have arrived. We asked him to fit a few bathroom accessories and tomorrow he's coming back to fit the bath screen to furnished our bathroom. 
I am so happy and pleased of the progress of our house. Thanks to my parents in-law who's been helping us all these time. Now, moving in to our house soon looks and sounds promising.
I want this DIY works to be over soon. Aside from wanting to live in a fully furnished, renovated house sooner,I want this DIY stress out of my life too!I want my life back..(sigh). Well I mean, not to wake up early any more on my weekends day off cos we need to get to the house early, be able to enjoy Saturdays with my hunny, give a break to my PIL as well, would be great to move in so I could just walk in to work as petrol in soaring high, have peace of mind and get away with endless expenses.!
Anyhow I am still thankful despite all my moaning..lol. I've learned a lot from this experience and had a great time working with my parents in-law. There's still some work to do but I am positive about as we've already finished the hard bit. Little by little and in time we be able to finally see the fruit of our labour, our DREAM HOUSE..*wink* Thank you GOD for all of these! Whew! DIY dilemma you'll be over soon!

♥I Stand Amazed♥

It's nice to start a week praising, praying and thanking GOD for everything. So as it is Sunday, I went to church with family. It is my 2nd Sunday off (worked all Sundays last month) so I make the most of it.lol..
In the afternoon after lunch,  I had a good, long chat with my sister via skype. It was nice to catch up with her and update me of how's everyone doing. We had the usual talk of how's things back home and Mama,health update of my brother, funny stories about my nieces and nephews, career updates and plans, what's a good buy, latest gala (trip) ng ate ko with friends, silly dreams and plans in the future and sometimes a bit of gossips to top it all..haha..sshhhh...lol
It at least lessens the longing and sadness of not being with them. And somehow a reassurance that everything is alright with them :) especially my brother's health. He had a kidney transplant 6 years now and so he really need a special care and attention.
My sister told me today that my brother's laboratory and x-ray results weren't good when he had his check up. She said his create-nine and uric acid were high. His x-ray showed that he had pneumonia. So the Dr. suggested him to be admitted. He refused as he said he is feeling fine and said no need for it. He will just come back for another check up. Everyone was worried and scared as the next day the GP rang and asked my brother to come back for another check up. He had another laboratory test and another x-ray as the GP was quite worried as well. Praise GOD! As when they got the 2nd result, both results were back to normal. To GOD be the glory!! Even the GP was so amazed and happy, he said my brother is so Blessed...

♥So I share this Song as I Stand Amazed  in the presence of GOD..I hope this will inspire you too♥



He is so precious to us and we love me so dearly.
Six years indeed now! Thank GOD so much for that. We have ups and downs with his health in the past years but we managed to get through it. With our support, my brother's cooperation, and above all the power of prayer, grace and love of God. :)

" We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks, for your name is near. We recount your wondrous deeds."
Psalm 75:1

Happy Sunday and Blessed Week ahead!

Our Anniversary Countdown

Daisypath - Personal pictureDaisypath Anniversary tickers Every night before I sleep, I never fail to thank God for the day I had. Whether it was a good or a bad day.
