In our sanctuary

Some days it starts as early as 630am. I have to be contemplating to get up, prepare breakfast or have a quick shower and nag my kids to hurry up and go out for breakfast. Some days, I have to be grateful when they allow you to lie down in bed and have a few minutes of peace.

Most of the days, I prefer to stay at home than going out. Sure, I love to wander and enjoy what the city has to offer but home is where the heart is.

I have my 3 kids to keep me busy about. I can run around with messy hair in my pyjamas without been judged. 

Really not easy trying to manage the house with the kids up and about. So I finally decided that the only time to do cleaning and chores would be at night after all the kids have fallen asleep.

That is also the time when I do my laundry, washing and some reading. A little me-time where I can have tv all to myself and put on mask on my face.

Once a while, I do meet up with friends for yum cha or my family for breakfast and dinner. But most of the times, I just snuggle with my kids, play fools and have some fun around the house. Schools are going to start in few weeks time. So now it is time to rest and relax before things get heated up! ^^

Wefie with the boys

Btw, Christmas is just a week away. And see what I bought for myself?


I know, it has been a long time since I painted my nails. Well, I think it is not too much to put on some colour for the coming holiday, right?? Add some glitter to my life (I mean, my nails! *wink wink*)

You are right...I also enjoy staying at home and chill with the kids. And then get busy with house chores and cooking..When I feel tired, just lie down on the sofa and watch tv. Hahha

Agree with you.. The kids will really keep you bz.. If got free time I also prefer to just laze on the sofa and watch tv and eat potato chips, haha..

Hah! That's my strategy too when I have guests staying over. I mop my floors, do my laundry after they've gone to bed ..usually after midnight! ^.^ Love the nail polish, Rose. Merry Christmas in advance!
