Filey Beach

I took a quick rest after sorting out all our travel stuff and putting them back to where they needed to be at home. Yes, we've just arrived from our summer holiday and I can't wait for tomorrow to start blogging about it. So, I started my part one of the travel blog now. We've promised Akyn a holiday prize after he won his piano competition in Hornsea last July. We shouldn't break a promise to our child especially if it's a gift for something he worked hard to earn it. He requested to visit London again for the nth... Read More

Book Hoarder

Few weeks ago, we went to East Park Woodford Leisure Centre swimming pool to try it for the first time. I had no intentions of swimming at all because first, I got no swimming suit and second I don't know how to swim. Bummer! Thank you Ate Susan for letting me borrow a swimwear. I'm starting to browse online to get my own swimming attire to use every summer. I should have done this months ago.😂LOL That's us fresh from the pool. East Park is becoming a frequent destination for us to spend our weekends. Apart from it's a huge... Read More

Happy A Year Anniversary UK Home

This photo below is a year old as of today. We took this shot exactly the date when we moved in, the twenty third of July, our blissful summer. In the middle of packing and moving stuff from our rented place to our permanent home, we took this moment to smile, appreciate the biggest gift bestowed upon us and pose for a memorable picture to treasure forever. Who would have thought this blessing would come early? As a new immigrant from this country, we felt everything was moving so fast in its most beautiful way. I've got my family to... Read More

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 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

Our New Passer-UK Driving Test

It's always a happy time for me when I have this moment to sit and update my blog. Blogging is a hobby I can't seem to live without. This blog is my outlet to my overwhelming emotions just like today when I can't hold my enormous joy of how happy our family is after Mon officially passed his UK practical driving exam last Monday. 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. 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

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...

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

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
