Am I having enough fun with ma kids??

I don’t think so…Its been few days since we go outside and have some fun. To my defence its pretty cold by the time we get home. But if we could do it last year, we should be able to do it this year too isn’t it??

So a gentle reminder to myself…get out there and have fun with kiddos. Everything else can wait.

what I’m going to do..from tomorrow..5-5:30 we will be out playing and laughing and cuddling and tickling and enjoying the current season of my life!!!

New direction!!

Though I keep it to myself, I always set goals for myself and try to get there. That being said, there were lot of times, I lot interest half way and dropped it. This year, one of goals was to spend some money and time for myself. It may sound strange, but kids are growing up and I’m having more time in my hand to do other things.

Both Eddie and Noelly are going to bed by 8:30 now, which leaves us another 2 hrs to ourselves.so what am I doing with that time. Though I don’t like to admit it, I waste a big chunk of it on www. I know, I know I have to curb it and invest my time in important things.

But something I’m doing which is making me happy and proud is spending my some time on my appearance. I started picking my clothes for next day, believe it nor I even try different combinations with clothes and jewellery and coming up with different outfits. I even made myself a manicure pack with a dozen nail polish colours. It’s some thing I haven’t done for a very very long time and I have to admit I’m loving it!!!

On top of that I’m keeping a record of my workwear. I find that pictures help me to see the outfit more properly and see what works and what doesn’t. I’m not 18 anymore, so my goal is not to dress up, it is to dress well and look polished. So what I’m trying to archive is to find the trends and looks that works for me.

I planning to post the pics in the blog, slim accountable


Back to school

Bye bye V-day!! hello Easter

Last year we bought a console table, which I was intending use for seasonal decor. I’m happy to report that it was the best purchase I did for our adobe. It’s next to the wall facing our lounge. So when all the chores are finished and I finally get around to sit down for my 10min reading time that is what I see. It makes me happy every time I look at it!!

Yesterday we took our V-day decor down and decorated for Easter. The kiddos got involved, though there were some fighting involved(not unusual). overall a fun thing we do as a family!!!




Funny things kids say

Today we went for a hungry jacks birthday party and they were playing a game where everyone’s supposed to sit when the music stops. Noel joined in and started dancing in full swing. Music stopped and all the older kids sat down, he looked around wondering whatz gng on and said “what the?”


Edwin went to bed and we were on the couch watching tv and playing with Noel. I told Noel As you both are fighting all the time, I’m gng to put Edwin in the bin. He didn’t say a word, raised his leg and hit me right on my face.


To make fun of miller for not bringing sweets when they came to tell marys expecting, chachan decided to visit them with sweets. When we were about to leave chachan gave hand shake to miller and he said poda and walked away.

Noel – y didnt minkle give hand shake to pappa?

Mum – when u see minkle u shud ask him y u didnt give my dad hand shake

Noel – ill ask him ” how sad minkle “


Creating new traditions

While driving to work today I asked Edwin what was his earliest family memory. He said our trip to snowy mountains, writing his name for the first time, moving to our house and Singapore trip.

There was no mention about our family prayer or church. So I needed to start something spiritual which will last in their kiddos memories. So from tmrw we will be starting a new tradition.

All 4 of us will hold hands and say a little prayer..to start off with I’m thinking. “God be with us and guide us through out the day” and give hugs and kisses to each other!!

I’ll comeback with an update soon. ….
