Our Weekend Away

How's your long weekend guys? Have you had the perfect weather for it? Or have you had an inconsistent weather like we had here in England? :D
My husband and I had a great weekend. We went away for my cousins wedding in Eastleigh, Southampton. It was where my husband studied for University so he know the place pretty much. We stayed 2 nights in the hotel nearby my cousin's house, the church for the wedding and reception, so it was a very sensible hotel to stay.

Breakfast, most favourite meal of the day if I am staying in a hotel..Why? Cos it means full English breakfast with choices of fruit juices, fresh fruits and freshly baked breads like my all time favourite pan au chocolat.

And here's what you call full English breakfast. Sausage, bacons, beans, mushrooms, roast tomatoes, egg and hash brown. What a great meal to start your day! *wink*

How about you guys, how did you spend your weekend? Oh not long now and its gonna be weekend again!  :D

Balikbayan Box Sent!

Three weeks had passed since we sent the box to Mama and I wonder which part of the world it is now..(hehe). Five more weeks and Mama would be able to receive it. I hope there would be no problem shipping it to my our province.

 Everyone is so excited to see what they have in the box and I am excited as well for them to receive it. It's a joy for me to share to them what I have even in little things. My siblings likes chocolates to I focused in getting more of that! *wink*

 Here's a sneak peek of some of the items we bought for my family

Safe trip box and we hope LBC would be prompt in delivering you to our door. Hope everyone will like what's in the box! :)  Thank you hunny for all of these! :) xx

Getting Over and Letting Go :'(

It has been almost a month since that tragic day happened. And there are days when I look back and thought about it, I say to myself "You've done very well Roxxy, you've stayed strong". But there are times when I could still feel the pain, fresh and inconsolable as I was that very moment it happened. Just when I thought I am in the peak of getting over it, I burst in tears when my husband played one of the scene in the movie "Tarzan" from you tube
And last night when my husband was reading the "Empty Arms" book with me and one of the mothers said in the book " This was my child who brought me only joy all the days of his life. Thank you God, for that kind of child; it was a gift only you could give." Tears fell from my eyes after hearing this as it is so true. When I had my baby in my tummy everyday was bright and happy and I miss that feeling now. :(

"God's plan is better ours" yan ang lagi kong sinasabi kapag nawawalan ako ng lakas ng loob na lumaban. Kanina bgila na naman akong nalungkot kaya ginawa ko I listen to song I like in You Tube, yan ang lagi kong ginagawa kapag malungkot ako. After constantly looking and listening to songs, I came across sa kantang "He'll Carry You" by Hilary Weeks. Heto pakinggan mo;

He knows your heart
He knows your pain
He knows the strength it took just too simply breathe today
He sees the tears that you cry
He knows your soul is aching to know why
He hears your prayers each humble word
When you said you couldn’t face another day he understood
He knows the path that you will find
Though you felt alone he’s never left your side

He knew there’d be moments when no earthly words
Could take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you’re going through
When you’ve taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

He’ll bring you peace and leave you hope
And in the darkest night he’ll comfort you
Until you know the sun will rise and each new day
You will have the strength to live again

And when there are moments when no earthly words
can take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you’re going through
When you’ve taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

He hears you when you’re crying in the night
He hears you when your soul longs to find
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures

It's a wound that only God and time could heal. Ikaw, ano ang kwento mo? xx

Three Weeks Stay-At-Home-Wife

Having signed off from work and stayed in the house for 3 consecutive weeks made me realised how demanding it is being a stay-at-home wife. There are household works waiting to be done everyday and I kept finding more as the day goes by. Brushing the floor, dusting, cleaning the kitchen, laundry and watering the plants (especially the tomatoes) became my routine every morning. I set a date once a week to clean the bathroom and do some ironing twice a week. Ironing is a marathon yet it's my pride to see my husband wearing presentable clothes at work and going out. And cleaning bathroom, laborious! Dust and my hairs are everywhere, but as what my Mama told me, apart from the kitchen it should be the most immaculate place in the house! Right?
I did a really good job clearing our spare room last week. Because I thought of renovating the room sooner, I started to tidy it up. Mum in-law and I did some filling on the wall with cracks and holes and then I cleaned the wall with sugar soap to have it ready for rubbing and painting. I piled the boxes of books in our secret cupboard and so we hope to continue renovating the room when we have sometime so to have it ready for our special someone to be send by God. (big smile)
Another housework I do enjoy now is watering the plants especially our tomatoes. I've been enjoying gardening lately. Thanks to my mum in-law whos' encouraging me to use my spare time in a more productive way rather that sulking in my bedroom, facebooking!hehe..
Cooking dinner for my husband has been my favourite routine for the day. Although it gets tedious sometimes trying to alternate English and Filipino/Asian foods. I don't know much about English food and I guess not so much with Filipino food as well. OK let's just say I am a complete beginner in cooking. I was not interested in cooking at all so I didn't bother to learn I hated it, honestly! Until we've moved to our own house, I realised I have to like it after all. My Mama has been a very good mum and wife and so as my mum in-law and so for me to be like them, I should at least learn how to cook! hehe..
I am just so lucky that my husband isn't a fussy eater. He eats anything except seafood, whatever I cook he eats and above all he likes Filipino food! (Smile).
Being a house wife is indeed demanding and laborious sometimes but the role itself  is fun and at the end of the day a job well done!
It's my last day being a stay-at-home wife and tomorrow I will be back to my working wife role! I am excited and ecstatic to be finally coming back to work to build my confidence again, see my work colleague friends and be able to help my clients! I miss them..
Thank you God for sustaining me in the longest 3 weeks of my life. Thank you for being with me every step of the way and showing that there's still plenty of reason for me to love life and continue living despite of what happened. Thank you for all those wonderful people around me, for their prayers and thoughts.
I am now ready to face the world with you..I know you will soon bestow us the most precious thing our hearts desire.

2nd Anniversary Presents

A month ago today, hunny and I celebrated our 2nd year anniversary.Oh yes we are married 2 years already and very very much happy..wink!
And so to celebrate that day, hunny took me out to eat, watched movie and shop (yes shopping!smile) at Westwood Cross, Broadstairs. Although the weather wasn't that great our day was fantastic! We watched the Tom Cruise movie "Rock of Ages"  and guess what? It was exclusive for just the 2 of us..haha nobody watched it that except us so it made our anniversary extra special! wink
And for the exchange gift, I gave my husband this;

Photo taken from Amazon where I purchased the product

He bought a Nokia Lumia 710 mobile a month ago in replacement for his old one that I broke (peace hun). And as I feel awkward of him using my girly phone pouch I though of getting him this 5-in-1 accessory pack of Nokia Lumia. Which includes a leather flip case cover, anti scratch  screen protector, stylus pen, car charger and USB ad apter. He like and it has been very useful :)
And my present is this;

A matching Lacoste bag and shoes! I tell you what, I was so spoilt that day..wink! Thanks hun especially for that very special present you gave but didn't come true, lets asked it again as our Birthday present :). Happy 2 years and 1 month today! I love you so much!

Our Back Garden

I am so pleased that the previous owners of our house were keen gardeners and had invested so much time with the garden. The landscaping and arrangement of our front garden is very good. And aside from that I am so happy I have a very good parents in-law who's at the same time loves gardening a lot.Father in-law has a good gardening backgrounds as his parents used to own a big nursery where they grew and sold vegetables and flowers. And in my mother in-laws case, she has a good touch and loves gardening..(smile) My sister in-law inherited the touch and interest but unfortunately my hunny didn't!But despite of that our garden is doing well.

We have apple trees in our backyard, tomatoes, lettuce, newly planted leeks and purple sprout (like broccoli), chillies, and 3 different colours of hydrangea.
I am so proud of what we've done to our back garden with the help of my parents in-law especially mum. We turned our out grown back garden into a flowery and fruitful garden.
It's been a joy waking up seeing all of these everyday. Having my in-laws to help me has been a big advantage for an inexperienced gardener like me. Now I am ready, willing and keen to learn gardening!
How about you guys, how's your garden doing?

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.
