Our Little Sanctuary

Welcome and Come In!
 

Ever since we moved in to our new house I haven't really shared much about the house move and the house itself. So it's time for me to share about our little sanctuary!
Welcome to 8 Makenade Avenue,our little sanctuary, our humble home. It is a semi-detached house and was built in 1935. It is near the train station, town centre, library, post office, grocery store and above all it is just 10-15 minutes walk to where I work. Perfect location!
The previous owners of this house were an elderly couple and has lived here for 50 years. They both love gardening that's why we have this lovely front garden, two green houses (one was demolished), and plenty of plant pots (big and small). hehe
Now we have lived here for just almost 4 months yet it feels like I've lived here 4 years. I fell in love with this house the first time I saw it on our first viewing. And of all the houses we viewed this is just the only house I felt at home and instantly saw myself living in here.
And how we got the house? Quite a chased! I felt so sure of the house even though there were so much to do to update it in a 21st century standard. I told my husband to put an offer but he wasn't sure so we left it for a bit. But because I am dying to get the house, I had a look again through the Internet and it said it has been taken out of the market! Someone has fancied it and put an offer!
I was so furious and upset. I rang the estate agent and alas! he confirmed to me that someone had put and offer and the owner has accepted it! I hurriedly rang my husband, nagged him and just like a brat, I asked him to do something to get it because I wanted it so much!
I was so disappointed and I cried to my mother in-law. And as always she supported me that the house is the right one for us. Actually she liked the house as well, she was the one who saw it in the Internet and told us. Now as I felt hopeless, all I did was prayed and thought if it is for us by hook or by crook we will get it and I left it in the hands of my husband.
He rang the estate agent and put an offer to the house guessing it was bigger than what the first bidder offered. The waiting game was tedious but thanks GOD he planned this house for us, our second offer was accepted! Hooray! We got it!
And since then our bank account hasn't been recovered! haha..Updating it is expensive yet we know in the long run when we've finished renovating our little sanctuary, it's gonna be worth it! :)
Now we are enjoying and happily living in this place we call HOME!

♥ We Were Supposed to Have a Baby But We Had an Angel Instead ♥

To My Dearest Little Angel 

I was over the moon when I knew you were growing in my tummy.
I adore and love you so much even though I haven't seen you.
I carried you very carefully for the 11 weeks you were inside me.
Everyday I woke up with so much joy and excitement in my heart 
knowing each day I am getting closer to seeing you my dearest little angel.

But I don't know what went wrong,
I woke up with spots of blood telling me that my little angel isn't safe any more.
I was so scared, I can't imagine losing you, I wouldn't know what to do.
I prayed and prayed, asked my little angel to be strong and to hold on for Mummy and Daddy.
Slowly the pain elevates and just then I knew sooner or later I might be losing you.

I felt so helpless, hysterical and above all, scared.
I can feel the blood rushing out of me, pouring down the bed,
I couldn't move, I don't want to move,
I wanted to keep you so badly, so desperately.
Although my heart gets weaker and weaker every time I felt the blood coming out of me,
I didn't lose hope, I didn't want to lose the hope that you would be staying with me and Daddy.

The doctor tried to spot you with the ultrasound inside Mummy's womb
And for the first time I saw you,
My heart was beating fast, I was delighted to see you and more desperate to keep you.
Although the doctor told me he can't hear any heartbeat,
I didn't lose hope because my heart was beating for you.

I can bear the pain and all the blood loss,
But the thought of you leaving me, I can't bear.
The most painful memory was lying there on the hospital bed so helpless
Just waiting to lose my little angel.

My abdominal pain didn't seem to get any worse after taking some pain relief.
I wish it lessened the pain I felt in my heart, but it didn't, it just sent me to sleep.
After five hours of sleep, I woke up from my nightmare, which unfortunately was real.
Much as I was losing my blood, I was not losing my tears.

The pain covered me and a sudden melancholy invaded me.
I went to the toilet to relieve myself,
I felt something bulky came out of me,
And when I tried to have a look,
Right in front of me, swimming in a bloody liquid was my dearest little angel.
"Oh my Lord!", my heart was ripped and I didn't know what to do,
I wanted to save my little angel, but there was nothing I could do.
Desperately wanting to cuddle my little angel,
I picked up my little angel and lay it on a piece of clean paper.
I held my little angel and carried it with me to my bed.

I wanted to run away with my little angel, but I knew I had to face it and I couldn't do anything,
But trust my little angel to the hands of God, who does great things for us.

I feel so sorry, so guilty and irresponsible.
I could have been extra careful.
Now I don't know where to start, how to pick up the pieces and face life again.
I lost myself just as I lost my little angel.

We love you so so much our little angel,
You will always be in Mummy and Daddy's heart forever.
Some day at the right time,
Mummy and Daddy will finally hold you
and cuddle you in our arms.

Lots and lots of Love
Mummy and Daddy xxxx
