Need a change

I am seriously of thinking on going back to work ,, its been almost 7 years that I've been a stay home mum , we have a business but once in a while I go the the factory and help the secretary do some filing and stuff at work , the kids are all in school and sometimes I get bored at home and needed something to stimulate my mind anything on healthcare jobs would be good , since I graduated with a degree on Nursing , something easy and not too tasking and would be during school time ,,,so that I can still pick up the kids from school . That is my only problem; finding a job that will be ideal on my time schedule...Where can I find a job like that ??? Anyway , I am going to be busy this coming weeks because we are moving to our new house on February 12 ,, time to pack thing and purge again ........... wish me luck ...

Birthday party for lil miss


Ahhh,, my little Miss is turning six next month ,,,, time flies so fast , I remember when I was pregnant with her I was very cautious about things that I do and things that I eat,, I kept myself healthy even taking prenatal multivitamins and doing light exercises, she was born via C section because of my past pregnancies which are all C section .
She was a lil bub , so tiny ,, always sleeping , such a good baby ,, yup,, a good sleeper we even called up my midwife to ask if is normal to be sleeping all the time,, they advised us to wake her up so she can have her milk on a scheduled time... such a good bubba ..

In two weeks time they are going to be back to school and she will be in year 1 ,,yes she survived Kindergarten and to think that she was placed in a composite class with 5 other kids from Kindy ,, so they are with the year 1 kids ,, such a smart cookie she is ... and still outsmarting everyone in the family ... also a bossy boots ,, but all in all a Lovely , caring lil missy , She deserves a beautiful party for her birthday and I am going gaga with all the organizing .

Having trouble sleeping

I've been sleeping really late this past few days ,,, I love to go to sleep .. I love my bed , its comfy and usually whenever I lie down I would fall asleep straight away.. But the Lala land is not calling me yet ,, so staying up all night and surfing the net is what occupies my suppose to be sleep time,, thinking I might need some sleeping pills soon,, its not good to be staying late .. Counting sheep is boring ,, I've counted a thousand sheep even wolves ... I even try to scare myself so I can go to sleep ,,, no help ,, even counting hunky werewolves ,, nope ,, no good.....
Ok,, a green tea?? warm milk ??? OREO ??? left over dinner ,, chocolates, left over Christmas candy canes ... what more???
No energy in the morning and still a school holiday ,, Ok kiddos,, just watch TV while mum takes a nap ,, just don't open the door and don't light up a fire!!!!!!!
HELP!!!!

Aftermath

With the disaster that happened in Queensland and watching all the news ,, I cant help but feel sad for those who've lost most of their belongings, love ones and everything they have in life .
Today is sunny and really humid ,, a reminder that Mother nature is so powerful and change all the time ...
As the people try to salvage things that they can and do a big clean up ,, they need support .
There are ways of helping them and the government set up a site to Qld.gov.au to get more details on how to help or donate..

Seeing some of the pictures and hearing stories about those who survived the floods make me wonder , how can they be able to cope up ,, they would surely start again, houses to be rebuilt,, how about those who have no insurance???

As I look at these pictures seeing cars devastated , would they have high risk auto insurance ,, for sure heaps of people are going to claim for it ,, and I hope they can claim most of it ....







But then again,, I just hope that this would never happen again.....

Sale again

As the Australian get stronger and almost at par with the US dollar , we are getting into the groove to shop online in the US,,, yeah its way much cheaper even with the International postage ,,but gezzzz I missed out on Cyber Monday sale ... we were away at the time and didn't know much about it ... yes ,, we have sale here the biggest one was the Boxing Sale right after Christmas ,, when they need to sell their stocks to bring in some new stock ...
Anyway ,, I still buy things online and I still find cheap stuff internationally and that makes me itchy to shop for some house decor .. I needed some wall decor for my kids room,, flower decals for my lil miss and nautical decal for my lil man and there are heaps of nice stuff to choose from,, have to place an order now before we move in to a new address .....

Update on my house




This is how my kitchen looks like ,,, yupppp,,, its not yet finished because hubby was busy painting the walls ,, he will finish the kitchen later ,, oh yes,,, my hubby can install kitchens .... lucky me !!!! he is a furniture maker by trade , he also a kitchen installer so when we designed the kitchen he told me not to worry because he will make me a nice kitchen ,,, I just told him what I wanted in the kitchen,, big space ,, lots of cupboard and a big pantry ..... yup and he is making it as a reality for me!!!

So aside from that ,, the ceiling needs to be painted ,, light fixtures to be installed ,, architrave and my lovely hard floor to be sanded ,, yes,, too much stuff to do and we are planning to move in early February .. so Good luck to us!!!

Furniture dilemma

AS I get excited about moving in to the new house ,, I am also getting busy checking out style and stuff to decorate the house ,, we are such in a tight budget and I don't think we need some new furniture in the house ,, so what I am doing is going through some websites that shows decorating in a budget ,, a DIY project ...
I was looking at my green sofa ,, sigh ....... and another sigh,.... all worn out and so outdated ,, it needs something to freshen up .. a nice slipcover would be a great solution ,, so I am looking for ideas for doing a slipcover ,, or finding some slipcovers on sale ,, I am thinking of a crisp linen type , something that is easy to wash and durable for the kids.. I already have some cushions that I bought at Target on sale that is why I only needed a plain neutral sofa .....
I am looking at some more inspirational pictures that I can base on so I can have achieve a good decor ....

Away for a weekend

Its been very hot the last few days ,,,, yesterday the temperature rose to 43C whoaaa a scorching heat,, good thing we were on a holiday for 3 days ,,,we went to Hunter Valley a wine region in Australia,, it was also hot there ... best thing is we can stay in an air conditioned room and go for a swim all day ... I was sweating really hard,,, no need to wear a make up ,, at least my face can breathe for awhile,, make up free ,, good thing because I sometimes get an acne when I wear too much make up ,, even when I am using an acne skin care ,, I still would have some spot . But anyway ,, its good to be away with the kids this year ,, my kids love to swim and the best thing is we were able to drive around and visited the wineries and tasted wine,,, it was really good and we found and bought some wines that we like... I'll post some pictures later ,, I was using my DSLR but I ran out of battery and I forgot to bring my charger ,, so capturing some moments on my Iphone , the quality is not clear ,, but I still have the good memories with me...

Birthday soon

Happy New Year to everyone,,,, let us embrace 2011 and hoping that this would be a great year!

Big celebrations had passed this year ,, My daughter's 16th birthday ,, my hubby's 40th and my 40th birthday ... whoaaa what a year ..
Now ,, Im am already organizing my lil girl's 6th birthday party,,, she wanted to have a Fairy party ,, so I've been searching for some inspiration , I saw a site that have nice invitations,, not only for birthdays but also for baby shower invitations , mommy cards, wedding inviattions and so much more .. Then I need to plan the food, the costume and find a Fairy to entertain the kids....
Her birthday is on February , so I really need to act fast and get things organized... Will post some pics for things that I like to do for her next time....
