Hull Fair 2022

Too many things happened last week that made me pause for a week off blogging. Writing requires a serene mind to let once ideas flow freely. Without the calmness, my thoughts will just be all over the place, non coherent, jumbled non sense words. In short, a failed blog post is the product of a heart not set into the writing mode. But today, is a bit better to get my thoughts out. Let me share this long overdue post for our Hull Fair 2022. Better late than never pretty Mommas (making excuses LOL).😂 October is the start of colder... Read More

First Place Piano Competition

"Mama, I still can't believe I took the trophy back home to be the winner!" Neither us nor Akyn ever thought of getting the first place on his first try to experience a piano competition here in the UK. It's not that we don't believe on his capability. It's more of the fact that he's just six years old with no experience whatsoever on how it would feel to be on the stage with the audience watching him perform. I bet it was a hundred percent never-wracking for his little heart. At the end of May this year, his coach,... Read More

London Second Day

As much as I wanted to wait for next week to finish another blog but I can't resist the eagerness to share it to my website about how nice our vacation went to the busy, always in a rush London life. Our day usually start with a sumptuous breakfast enough to fuel us for another nonstop walking day. Yes, we really need to get a good meal for the day plus the comfiest pair of shoes if we wanted to survive a fun-filled tour. We went to the nearest Italian resturant near our hotel before going on to ride a... Read More

London Day 1

Akyn's opening of class will still be this Wednesday. More bonding time with my Bokyn at home on this rainy morning. We will do some playtime activities after finishing this post. I'm here to share our recent family trip. Writing in our Akynfullhouse website to document another unlocked happy moment for this half term break for our Akyn on a lovely spring season. A great time to go on a family holiday. We've planned for this trip since the beginning of this year and thanks God our request for a time off was granted. It was hitting two birds in... 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

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

Bath Trip Part 2

We were celebrating my sister's graduation for her Master's Degree in her teaching profession yesterday. All her hardwork had finally paid off with an additional achievement unlocked in her career development. Nothing is really impossible if we are determined to get our goals realized. Thank you dear God for another family blessing.😘 For today's blog post is the second part of our Bath, Somerset family holiday. I am so proud of ourselves in making our DIY travel a memorable one. Yes, we normally don't avail for a travel package when we go explore places. To save our travel budget what... 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

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

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

Akyn’s 5th Birthday

I thought about writing two different posts regarding our Akyn's birthday and our New Year's Eve but due to time constraints I'm merging them both. Working momma on the move again! I kind of feel groggy still after my extra shift yesterday. Unlike in the Philippines, nurses usually got only one regular employer to work with. However in here you can work as many as you like until your energy says stop! More opportunities for us to enhance our skills at the same time more funds for shopping. (wink) So, going back to our main topic about my Akyn's birthday,... Read More

Christmas Eve 2020

When someone asks," How's your Christmas?" I've heard some responses saying, "Nothing special really. It just passed." Others would say, "It's quite lonely with no parties allowed!" Well, for us it's entirely a different version we chose to be thankful for. It's one of the best Christmas ever with my family celebrating with me in the UK. The way you view things will definitely change everything. Instead of us grumbling of the current situation, why can't we count the enormous blessings we've got. Can we be thankful for being healthy and that's the most important thing amidst the pandemic, isn't... Read More

My Birthday Celebration

Every year has it's own story to tell. This year might not be a great year for everyone, however, I am indeed truly grateful for all the blessings we got as a family. Still felt like I was just dreaming of having my family with me to spend every special occasion here but now, it got finally realized. Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas, New Year, Valentines and all events will be a jolly party with the three of us making memories for each. Thank you Lord. 🙏 Last year I did celebrate my birthday in London with my friend Jazz and I'm... Read More

Simple Christmas House Decoration

At the start of this month my boy has been non stop asking me as to when are we going to start decorating our house ready for the holiday season. We used to do our preparation at the beginning of September. Too early for some I know! But in the Philippines once the Ber months would start to kick in it is pretty common for you to hear Christmas songs played in big malls with the brightest Christmas lights shining through the night. For me our tradition back home is still the most festive joyous way of celebrating God's birthday.... Read More

Day With My Boys

Getting productive on a rest day is an accomplishment for a busy Momma like me. Woke up at seven to help my Akyn be ready for school, had a delicious breakfast made by my Mon as he usually does the cooking at home now. I'm just too tired to do it after shift. Bet most nurses can relate to the feeling of exhaustion after a long day duty. After the meal, did iron my uniform, laundry, netflix chill movie time for me then had another nap. Who wouldn't want to recharge themselves before another hustle in the ward for the... Read More
