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

In Everything We Appreciate

After saying the grace before meals this breakfast we've brought the topic in our dining table about appreciating more what we have just like the sumptuous meal in front of us. Some may have skipped their meals because they have nothing. Others maybe suffering from cold and darkness whilst us warmly sitting in our comfy couch. You know simple things like that are often overlooked. I would admit that sometimes I forget to recognize the full worth of something not until the moment it's gone. We used to do everyday online call with my family back home but because of... Read More

Hi 2022

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you are all enjoying with the fresh start for this year. I usually begin my blog every new calendar flip with looking back how my 2021 went to wrap up all my learnings for the previous year rather than right away setting up my present goals. How do you kick off your first day out of 365 days? Well, everybody has their own ways of doing it. What matters most is how we face the whole spin of our 2022. Do you agree with it pretty Mommas. Let's start by looking pretty. (LOL)🤣... Read More

Our Christmassy Home

We know when it's almost Christmas because it's getting colder and colder everyday. It's like a snuggle time of the year under our thick blanket in front of the delightful fireplace. Who wouldn't want to stay at home at the perfect comfort of our home? 😂 My home buddy. Anyway, how's your Christmas decoration at home going? Are you almost finished with everything? I guess mine would be quite alright now. Although, I'm still adding some bits and bobs everytime I see something cute when we go shopping. Nothing really much I planned to change anymore with how things are... Read More

Visa Approved

Finally my most dreaded day of having my tooth extraction was done yesterday although I'm still feeling sore with my gums and my soft diet regime continues for the next two days.😩 It's always a long wait here to get a slot to see the dentist due to the pandemic. Covid 19 had tremendously affected almost everything in our lives normality. We should be thankful we are still here amidst the cruelty of the virus. 🙏 As with my previous post, I did mention about an important appointment we had to attend when we went to Leeds. I tried to...

Halloween and Pumpkin Picking

I've read from one of my favorite mommy blogger, Mommy Fleur, about her mother and daughter five questions session where she did get the raw sweet answers from her daughter about the things she like. I tried few of the questions with my five year old boy but not the whole lot as he gets bored with too many questions thrown at him in one instance. I don't want to hear his favorite tag line,"Why are you asking me loads of questions Mommie?" Here are some of his answers: What are the five things you love about Mommie? I love... Read More

Entry Way

I was so focused finishing my work related task in my last week shift when somebody randomly asked me,"Are you like this at home Michelle?" "Always in a rush and wants everything done, organized the way you wanted?" Quite surprised with the question which made me think as well if the way I behaved at work is exactly the same at home. Then I replied,"No because I am at home and I am more relaxed because it's my home!"I thought the conversation was done after my response but another follow up question was,"Are you married?" I gave a short response,"Yes!"... Read More

Hull Fair

Akyn went to school using his bike instead of his scooter as suggested by me thinking he hasn't used his little bike for quite sometime now. I haven't realized though that I will be going home carrying the heavy metal bike alone after sending him to school. Tried to push it using my hands but because it is so small it hurts my back when I am leaning down. I did rather carry it back home and promised not to offer it again in going to school. We'll stick in using his scooter from now on. Duh! A little sleepy... Read More

Make It Feel Homey

After I finished vacuuming our entire house, here I am again ready to share some exciting updates for our little lair. I prefer to stay more in our house these days compared to before when we were still renting. It felt more homey to me because I can personalize each corner of our home inviting us to relax more indoor. Obviously we can't change anything on a rented property without the Landlord's permission before. I got to deal with everyday's eyesore of that little place we rented. It's surely a big leap of change of us to move here. And... Read More

First Time?

"Hi, is this the gate for Year one?" I had to ask one of the parents whose son happened to be my Akyn's classmate. "First time, ey?" he responded with a smile. Obviously yes it was our first time to come with everything all new to us but we're more than excited to let Akyn start his new school. It was only yesterday as well when I managed to buy all his new set of uniforms ready to be worn this morning. Look at my little gentleman smiling all for Mommie's obsession of taking photos of my handsome baby. Why... Read More

Coffee Nook and Everything Nice

Having my me time for a couple of hours while my Akyn is in school is absolutely relaxing. It allows me to do my hobby just like blogging without feeling guilty of not looking after my boy because of getting too preocuppied of thinking what to write. Mon is also at work in York which would mean I have my alone moment."Go pretty Momma enjoy doing your morning skin care without rushing for my Mommy duties!" What's the latest update for Akynfullhouse? I've been so productive for the previous days. Apart from working straight nights, duh the usual work routine,... Read More

Circus Zyair

"Mommie I have a surprise for you today!" My Akyn excitedly showed me his appreciation note given by his teacher last week. Little things like this means a big achievement for them and for us parents, too. It's one of the best feeling ever as a Momma knowing my baby is also working hard to do good in school. I'm not the type of parent who would pressure him to compete with others. I'd rather support him to whichever passion he got than to tell him what to do. What about you? Which type of parent are you? And because... Read More

Whitby

I am a believer that if we are into the habit of doing something nice to the people around us without asking or expecting anything in return, the universe will pave its way to return the blessings to us in ways we've never realized to receive it. Just like our free trip last Sunday to Whitby together with Kuya Marcelo's family. It was such a happy trip to visit a wonderful place to end the summer. Thank you Kuya and Ate Susan. Kuya Marcelo had generously catered the three of us to be included in their seven seater family car.... Read More

My Software Developer

Common problems of overseas workers with young children is about childcare especially if both parents are working just like me and Mon. I would consider myself lucky because both my employer and Mon's boss are quite willing to make some little adjustments with our schedules so we can have an alternating off duties to look after our Akyn. It's not easy to live abroad with no other close relatives to help us. So, for those wanting to migrate abroad, childcare should be one of the considerations to make if both couples seek to get employed. Our main inspiration to work... Read More

New House Decorations

After finishing my painting projects for our new home, I'm finally sitting down now ready to update my Akynfullhouse with the latest house improvement I've done so far within a few weeks of stay here. Not even a month had passed but our house looked so much better every day. I'm so in love with our little lair not because it's a new place for the three of us but mainly due to the fact that it's OURS already. I can't still get over it pretty Mommas. ♥️ Anyway, first thing I bought was the rug for our living room.... Read More

Our UK Forever Home

Today is literally the fourth day after we moved in to our forever home in the UK. Did I just say OUR home? Yes, no more landlord this time, no more rent payment but rather mortgage payment shall I say. We still felt we're over the moon knowing that we finally realized one of our goals and that's to have a house we can call as ours. I was hesitant to send my application for a mortgage at first after hearing some feedback from others telling me I had little to no chance of getting approved because of the fact... Read More
