Time flies so fast

Wednesday, March 26, 2014 by jacaranda

Time flies so fast. I was picking my son after preschool and a thought crossed my mind about him going to proper school next year. It made me a bit sad thinking that he would be going to school five days a week, but that's the reality. He has to go to school. My baby is now a big boy. I am just so thankful that I really looked after him since he was born until now...

My cousin is so lucky to have been given a guitar by my brother-in-law. If I am not mistaken he bought it online as there are plenty of guitars for sale at guitar center. My sister once told me that they get most of their musical instrument online as they are proven to be of good quality and quite reasonable prices...

Beautiful flower

Putting my little son to sleep is not an easy thing to do. He can now survive with one sleep during the day, used to be two. What I do now is take him for a walk in the neighboorhood. That way we both can get fresh air and it eventually could make him fall asleep. What I love about our walk is we get to see flowers that are in bloom, sometimes we could see beautiful birds...

Good quality batteries

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 by jacaranda

Now that we have computers, laptops and smartphones, we must make sure that the batteries will not run out. I am even thinking of buying a good quality charger as what we have now is playing up. When our phone is on charge, it takes 5 hours to be fully charged when usually it only takes an hour, which is a pain as I always use my phone, who doesn't in this day and age? I must go check Tags: , ,

On-stage stands

Thursday, January 2, 2014 by jacaranda

When I watch somebody perform on stage, I cannot help but admire those who can play an instrument. I admire them for taking time to learn something. I really wanted to learn how to play piano or even a guitar but it was not a priority when I was young. I guess being able to play any instrument is an asset in winning somebody's heart...

Christmas 2013

Thursday, January 2, 2014 by jacaranda

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a happy start of the new year. Our Christmas was spent with family. My sis-in-law and her family came to celebrate with us. Mom cooked the usual food we have at Christmas and that is roasted turkey, ham, veggies to name a few. I made a ginger bread house with the help of my older son and it came out pretty well...

Christmas gifts

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 by jacaranda

I am now on the final stage of my Christmas shopping. It means I have done most of my shopping and all I have to do now is send some away and put some presents under the Christmas tree. I am afraid I was not able to buy my what I had been wanting to give my cousin. He loves to play guitar and I have found online an Tags: , , ,

Cooking is my hubby

Wednesday, December 18, 2013 by jacaranda

Cooking is what I love to do. I want my family to eat healthy food. Nothing beats home-cooked food they say. Even though I love to cook, I am pleased that I only have to cook twice a week for dinner. My mom-in-law does a lot cooking that my. Like tonight, she cooked roasted lamb with vegetables and cauliflower with cheese...

Used guitars

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 by jacaranda

On this day and age where everything is expensive, buying something on sale or even used items are such wise things to do. Saving a dollar here and there could make a huge difference in your financial situation. I must admit I am one of those mommies who is happy to receive hand-me-downs especially baby clothes...

Eurostar train experience

Tuesday, December 3, 2013 by jacaranda

I was a bit hesitant at first when my husband said we were going to Brussels using eurostar. Firstly, we already have plane tickets and it only takes a few minutes from London. Secondly, the train tickets were so expensive. A little less than a thousand for all of us and lastly, the journey was two hours...

Summer is here

Sunday, December 1, 2013 by jacaranda

It is summertime in Australia. This is the season that I don't like the most as it gets really hot and oftentimes I get headaches. I prefer winter over summer as there is a limit to how much layers of clothing you can take off. In winter, it does not matter how many layers of clothes you put on. Another thing that bothers me in summer is the bushfires...

Now that Christmas is fast approaching. A lot of people now are buying gifts for family and friends to avoid Christmas rush. I understand that because it can be very chaotic at the shops during Christmas season. I know what to give my husband as he mentioned one that he liked before. But for my music lover oldest boy, I would like to buy him a drumset with nice Tags: , , ,

Food dilemma

Monday, November 4, 2013 by jacaranda

It is always a dilemma for me what to feed my children. Even though I use internet as my source, there are still times that I just don't know what to give them. I wanna give them something that is delicious, easy and budget-friendly. Sometimes I ask my friends for recipes. It is not easy being a housewife and a mother...

Kid’s project

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 by jacaranda

My two boys are so busy playing everyday. Their toys are spread all around the house. I don't mind the mess as long as they are having fun. Though there are times that it gives me headache, I just think that as long as my children are happy. I have trained my oldest son to clean after his mess. It does not happen always...

Beautiful garden

Wednesday, September 18, 2013 by jacaranda

One of the things we did when we were in England was to visit my husband's family. They were all so nice. We even stayed in my husband's auntie's house for a week. It was great and we did save a lot of money. We were invited to have lunch at his uncle and we really had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful sunshiny day that welcomed us...

Fun time with friends

Sunday, September 8, 2013 by jacaranda

It has been a long time since I used our karaoke at home. I want to use it and sing my heart out but it is not the same when you are with friends. I used to have karaoke session with my friends back home and I really miss it. We spent hours and hours singing along our favorite songs. Even though our microphone was not as good as Tags: ,

Nut and Egg allergy

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 by jacaranda

I am so happy that my youngest has not got egg allergy. Yesterday, I gave him some cooked egg yolk and he has got no reaction at all. Could be that I was eating egg almost everyday when I was pregnant with him? Even until now that I am still breastfeeding him, I eat eggs believing that he will not have any allergic reaction as it is passed on to him from my milk...

Musical instruments

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 by jacaranda

When I was in high school I was part of our school band. I played xylophone and I really enjoyed it. As I consider myself a music lover, it was the only instrument that I could play and I used to spend hours and hours practicing at home and at school. We used to go to perform in different festivities in and out of our campus...

Back to normal

Monday, September 2, 2013 by jacaranda

It has been two weeks since we came back from our month-long overseas trip. It was a holiday we truly enjoyed. We got to see my families and friends, also my husband's family and friends. The journey was not bad at all as our children behaved really well. We even got good comments from our fellow passengers that our children did very well...

Drum set for our son

Thursday, August 22, 2013 by jacaranda

We are back to normal again. This morning I took my son to his school and went shopping afterwards. I have so many things to do, appointments to make and one of those is to call the music school. We would like our eldest to continue his piano lessons, but right now he is showing interest in playing drums...
