Always Not Boring

Another Monday madness for the most working class but for me, it's a Monday bliss as usual. Sorry for rubbing it in pretty Mommas because I just can't contain my happiness to look forward for this day, my rest day!🤣I've heard some notions about working overseas life, before I decided to work abroad, that life will turn out to be boring filled with all work concept, no fun, all stress, missery and only monetary gains. But then I've proven it all wrong as the quality of our lives whether we are in our homeland or somewhere miles away from home,... Read More

Date with Akyn

I've added another school photo of Akyn in my photo wall gallery upstairs. When you enter our house and look up our stairs, these are the lovely photos that will welcome you to our little abode. Nothing grand gallery but so much welcoming with our Akyn's smile. He's growing more cheerful everyday and believe it or not, this boy doesn't even know how to elicit a frowning face totally opposite to his mum.🤣(LOL) He tried several attempts to frown but failed. I'm starting to believe now those superstitious beliefs that when a mum has a happy pregnancy experience, eventually the... Read More

Bookworm Alert

I got loads of pending blog post to make which took me half an hour to decide what to write first with all the beautiful list of topics I am thrilled to share to my blog. I've finished taking my time sipping my cup of coffee this morning while doing a mental picture of organizing my thoughts. What should I write as my intro, body and end for this write up. It takes a lot of my brain cells( if I have any🤣) to work out every piece in finishing a post. How much more in writing a novel. That's... Read More

A Walk In The Park

First day of school for our boy after his two weeks off today. "Are you going to miss me Mommie? Because I won't be missing you while I'm in school?" He blurted out while having breakfasts focused on his tablet watching cartoons not even looking at me. "Why won't you miss me? I'm going to think of you a lot today waiting for you to come home! That's not fair. " Sometimes, NO, wrong word, it should be often times, we mothers are so dramatic in every little things. Don't you agree?(LOL) He then explained to me pointing to the... Read More

Newest Obsession Review

Happy Easter pretty Mommas! It's a quite morning for a sleepy head chatty writer. I skipped my morning coffee routine because I'll be at work tonight. To be up all night means a dose of caffeine before the busy hospital shift. As much as I love coffee, I try to limit my intake to once a day or else I will be up til the morning. We don't have much plans for today apart from attending the Sunday Easter mass then home to get some sleep before going to work. And of course, my blogging hobby won't be out of... Read More

Easter Bonnet DIY and Shopping Haul

For the very first time Mon started using our Captain America, the name Akyn gave to our blue car to York to get the feeling on how it is to drive in the motorway as he is normally scared to drive in such fast lane. Thanks God he safely managed to do it. His officemates are encouraging him more to face his fears in using the motorway for him to overcome it as days go by. It's also cheaper to drive in going to work compared to paying for a train ticket. Because he didn't need to wait anymore for... Read More

Our New Passer-UK Driving Test

Another answered prayer pretty Mommas. Yay!

Immigrant

Happy Monday! Happy blogging to all pretty Mommas enjoying their quiet time whilst finishing their hot drinks during this cold morning. I'm feeling way better now compared to last week's ordeal. I'm finally back to the normal me who loves to express my chatty side through my writing. Today's blog is all about me sharing my experience here in the UK as an immigrant for three years now. Yikes! Three years was just like one snap of my finger, time was so fast.😂 Here's me enjoying my three year anniversary as an immigrant. I got employed as a registered nurse... Read More

Stonehenge

I'm starting to feel a little bit better compared to yesterday when I had to stay in bed all day with my non stop fever and body ached all over. I got hit with Covid again for the second time around.😥I had my two vaccines plus my booster dose but the effect of the virus on my first day was still terrible. I'm glad my fever is off now just clogged nose and cough with mild headache. I felt like this second Covid that hit me is stronger than my last year's experience. I'm glad I had my vaccination. It...

Bath Part Three

Another me time Monday giving me my free moment to update my akynfullhouse. It feels like something is incomplete with my week if I can't write a post.

The Roman Baths Family Trip

It's always a busy day following the arrival from a family get away. From all the accumulated laundry to do plus the organizing of all the travel stuff used arranging them to where they needed to be put back in the house and the list continues. Is that something us pretty Mommas can relate to? I'm glad we left the house on it's immaculate state giving me less work to clean up after our holiday. We've just arrived from our UK Bath family outing. Did take advantage of Akyn's school break so the three of us can travel without worrying... Read More

His First Solo Cantor Experience

While walking with my Akyn in going to school earlier in the middle of the breezing cold winter of three degrees this morning, he asked me randomly,"Did God make this cold weather Mommie?" I said yes and he further asked,"Why?" I need to answer his question or else he won't stop dropping the topic not until he will get the answer to it. "Because God wants us to experience what a cold weather feels like." "If we only have a nice weather all the time then we won't be able to appreciate how lovely the sun is without knowing how...

Five Years Blogging

This month celebrates our fifth year anniversary for our family blog. How quick is the flipping of calendar again? I remember starting this blog a few months when Akyn was born. It initially served as my reflection to everything I encountered then it turned to be a documentation of our Akyn's experiences. And now, it eventually became part of my system to write anything about how we celebrate life as a family. Happy fifth year anniversary to my Akynfullhouse. I'm hoping for more years to keep on inspiring my readers. They are my source of inspiration to continue my love... Read More

Thrifting Made Easy

I promised Akyn to go thrifting with him again after his class today because yesterday I did go around Hull finding some treasures with the loveliest couple Kuya Alcid and Ate Susan introducing me to one of the best thrifting stores in town. Thank you so much Ate and Kuya for showing me around. "Why didn't you buy anything for me?" "I want us to go thrifting again today so I can get something for myself, too please Mommie!" This was his request since last night convincing me to go shopping in the middle of a two degrees cold weather.... Read More

Getting Sporty Activated

Getting back to my norm of writing a blog once a week is something I'm excited to do. Who wouldn't be glad living the beauty of serenity. A blessing to be thankful in our adulting life 101. I'm on a cloud nine while composing my post as of the moment after Mon had received a very pleasant news from his Manager. Hello 2022, you definitely started our year brighter. Please continue to be an inspiring year for us. 😘 On the other note, have you completed the list of your New Year's resolution already pretty Mommas? I haven't done mine... Read More
