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

Six Years of Happiness

After two weeks of writing nothing, here I am ready to open up another page of me. The last couple of weeks was so difficult not just for me but also for our entire family way back home. A super typhoon drastically hit our hometown on the evening of the 16th of December causing too much damage to the properties of my fellow Kababayans situated where the eye of the typhoon Odette had passed. I am beyond grateful that my family are all fine apart from our roof blown away by the unforgiving strong wind. We still have not resumed... 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...

My Day Be Like

It took me a while to write another blog for my Akynfullhouse because we've been doing loads of changes recently with our website. So much trial and error that needs doing before our site can go live again. Still thankful I got my personal web developer, my husband, who can customise my blog based on my own liking. It is so expensive to get someone to build a website nowadays, isn't it? Anyway, my post for today is to share my gratefulness for the blessings I got for my birthday. Yay🙏I'm a year older again and wiser I supposed. This... 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

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

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

Our 7th

How's our marriage after seven years? I can right away answer this with a big smile saying," I am very happy and felt blessed all the time for having a man who will always be there with me through thick and thin. We did conquer big waves together. Shared both the sweet laughter of victories and tasted the bitter tears of sorrows of life's never ending circle of challenges and yet here we are, both standing still for our little family especially with Akyn together with us now. I'm just so thankful for making the right decision of finding a... Read More

Madame Tussauds

There's nothing more comfy than sitting on a couch with unlimited cuddles from my five year old boy during a cloudy lazy Sunday. How lovely is that pretty Mommas? Hope you're all doing well, too. Today's post is our Madame Tussauds visit when we went to London at the beginning of this month. It's a bit late to post this just because I got too preoccupied of my never ending busy schedules but still I wanted to keep my blog updated whenever I have the time to do it. Traveling with my family is something we wanted to do more... Read More

My Adorable Five

After finishing all my house chores, now I can finally relax to start updating another blog for our Akynfullhouse. I always caught myself wanting to write on this blog no matter how hectic my schedule is and many would asked on how I can still manage to continue this hobby when my profession is quite so demanding taking so much of my time. Well, all I can say is when we are used to do a habit of whatever hobby we are into, it would eventually become part of our routine to do it. Don't you agree with that? Bet... Read More

My First Balikbayan Box

I've just finished having a videocall with my Papa and Mama who were excited to share their new hair cut style today. LOL. They are my favorite constant chatmates everyday as well as my sister with no days we won't be talking to each other. It's like part of my routine to check on them before Akyn goes to school in the morning so they can see their cheerful grandson to start the day happy. Speaking of Akyn going to school today, he was two minutes late than his usual schedule in waiting for the school gate to open just... Read More
