Rare Monday that I’m free in the afternoon while Chloe take her nap, as cny draw nearer that’s gonna be end of the peak season at my job. Gonna enjoy job-free weeks till mid of Feb!
It’s been a month since we moved in, unpacking was crazy and overwhelmed having to work, taking care of Chloe, house chores and cook at the same time I finally down with fever. My body need rest and remind me i ain’t superwomen. Juggling so many tasks the same time gives me big satisfaction when things turn out good as i expected it but I really need to slow things down, I need to take care of my body too.
I recovered pretty quick but I pass my virus to poor Chloe. She seldom sick when she does it’s always from me, sorry baby.
Back to #mkcrib its nearly 95% done! Just need to got the curtain hang up and some wall fixtures to be done but we shall leave that after cny. I don’t want them to collect dust when we are away. Speaking of cny this year quite no mood as we are so busy with the house we got nothing prepared! Just a few pieces of new clothes of each of us, that’s it 😖. I think this year marked the year we brought the less new year clothes even Chloe! Broke record she usually have new outfit till day 10 (at least) but this year only 3 and one pair of shoe because she outgrown most of her shoes. I’m not worry or gonna buy more actually, just play around with current and new outfit I think we are good. I really hope we are matching to minimalist lifestyle, I really do.
2019 is gonna be very exciting for us as we embark our new journey at our new place! So far we loving every bit of the house because each and every corner in #mkcrib are from us to fit our family need. We conclude that we’re blessed to be able to live in different houses different style before we have our own, we stayed at woody design house, industrial/vintage style, simple non-renovated one, with walk-in wardrobe and without etc.
As we grow older our priority in need and want become different too, i no longer lust for walk-in wardrobe as i think it’s unnecessary my closet now with 2 door is barely 60% filled. As for style i always go with white this time added some light wood touch for Scandinavian + Minimalist style which i think it’s more sustainable and never go out of trend. i’m those easily get bored person so with white and light wood other color can be added from time to time.
We’re now left 25% to unpack, sofa will delivered this week then shoe cabinet to be install on Friday, can’t cook yet because we forget to ask the gas person to come to activate our gas hood then curtains and we’re done! This week ping and bf will come to visit us, can’t wait to have more gathering and playdate at our place! We’re still hesitate whether to have a house warning party or not, shall we how~
Nope not going back to work i love the flexibility working from home but as Chloe go to N2 longer school hour i basically have total 6 hour me-time (2 hr from chloe nap time). After settling the house i will take up another job to keep myself busy at the same time still get to spend quality time with my girl.
This year we pray God bless us with another baby, actually these 2 year i’m conceived and pregnant but it’s not God’s timing yet for us to have another child. I really hope Chloe will have sibling to grow up with of course i need to accept too if that’s God plan, but we will try our best.
Start the month with a good news that our troublesome wall finally got approval to hack after so many hassle! Because of this wall the renovation was delayed because nothing can be done if hacking still needed to be done.. anyway Praise the Lord although our initial plan was not placing a door there but i guess we need to follow the HDB rules so we need to compromise.
Tiles are all laid next will be change of all windows- lighting – paint – vinyl -pumping follow by carpentry of course all this after this wall being hack down and make good.
Our little girl had been following us to the site because no one to look after her at home but she kinda get used to it. At first she just stay at the balcony because she keep saying it’s smelly (actually dusty) but slowly she also want to kepo about the house progress.
As you can see there’s quite a few of windows in this living room + balcony we’ve spent quite a bit for the sound proof windows next headache is the curtain + blind. Still haven’t ask for quotation hopefully don’t cost too much!
While my current house start to cluttered with boxes not that we start packing but stuff we brought for the house. These are all lighting fixtures from Taobao i feel tb have nicer lighting than in Singapore and of course cheaper price too. Search for higher end and a little more expensive items in tb will be good enough, all these light came up very decent.
Chloe had been in holiday program in school for a week now and for another week hope i got all my errand done before she officially on school holiday. Planing to spent a week with her exploring places and spend good times with her before we busy with moving house again.
No matter how we gotta moved before first of January so this month gotta be quite hectic one with Chloe on holiday, gospel event and helping with decoration for a sister’s wedding in church plus house stuff and moving on top with my daily task for my job. God bless us~
