London Fourth Day

Finally, the last bit of our London trip is completed. I've been procastinating this morning as to when I'm going to sit and start writing for today's post because I'm ahmmmmm too lazy to get up on a Monday morning. We all have those sluggish days, don't we? It's when the bed is to comfy to let go of the duvet covers whilst enjoying the warmth and softness of the bed. Adulting struggle is real Pretty Mommas. I have also finished reading a book written by Taylor Jenkins Reid whilst in bed. The book was such a gem. I'll blog... Read More

Ikea UK

I am supposed to write the consecutive parts of our London trip but decided to write our Ikea in Leeds adventure instead as a part of me again is so much excited to share my weakness to shopping home decors. Who wouldn't be when Ikea has so many beatiful choices out for display? Overwhelming shopping experience for this Momma. Me and my boys taking a selfie before the journey begins. It was a lovely Sunday morning when we went there. After attending the Holy mass, the Reginos invited us if we wanted to go to Leeds. Our initial plan was... Read More

Natural History Museum London Day Three

I spent like almost an hour of videocall talking to my sister back home sharing all the juicy updates happening in each of our lives. It feels nice to have someone to whom you can call as your BFF/sister, isn't it? I got somebody I can share both my happiness and my not so good day. And I'm confident she won't drag me down using my weaknesses, the bad side info of me I've shared with her. I've met a lot of people to whom I've thought was a FRIEND to me apparently they are the opposite. They'll just dressed... 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

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. I guess that is because blogging has become part of my system to do during my rest days. Have you also built a routine hobby pretty Mommas that you can't live without it? You are free to comment below to share yours, too?😍 I've promised to post the rest of the travel details for our Bath trip and this is the third part. Is there a fourth remaining version? Well see how... 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

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

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...

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

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

Minerva Restaurant

My post are mostly throwback events that happened just before our national lockdown here. What can we expect to do during this time anyway apart from our routine task at home pretty Mommas? I'm not bored nor complaining at all with our situation now. I would say worried for the safety of everyone especially my family, at the same time hopeful for a solution to combat the beastly pandemic. (sigh!) Anyway for today, let's make our palate both crave for food instead of dwelling into the sour reality. Two weeks ago we went to one of the pubs, the Minerva... Read More

York Travel Part 1

It's the first day of our national lockdown here. How does it feel? Kind of the same situation during the first lockdown where non essential stores are close again like pubs, gyms and shopping centres. People are ask to stay at home more not unless going out for an important reason. Schools are still open though which would mean an everyday walk with my boy in going to school. We're being vigilant in updating ourselves with the recent announcements from the government because every now and then new laws tend to be implemented unexpectedly. I do hope everyone is coping...

York Shopping

We've been checking the weather for the past couple of days because we were hesitant to continue with the trip if it's going to be raining all day. At eight in the morning, I thought that all plans would be cancelled due to the weather forecast of a rainy afternoon in York. However, Michio called me about the change of plans of pushing through the travel escapade. A calm morning turned into an adrenaline causing preparation to get the earliest scheduled train. Can you imagine a mum rushing to get everything packed? Yes, I know it was insanely challenging. 🤣... Read More

Unplanned Leeds

Now I've proven how bad I am when it comes to listening skills. It may sound kind of an easy task to do but not for everybody. LOL. My listening part gained the lowest score during my IELTS exam before. Why was that? Your guess is as good as mine. So, last weekends my close friend Michio asked me if I was free to go on a quick trip to Leeds. I didn't know what kind of bug had blocked my ears because I definitely heard her say Tesco instead of Leeds. Without thinking I said yes. I'm always on... Read More
