Here is a photo of our almost done tree house. It took hubby, BIL and his 2 sons 2 full days to rebuild the tree house. Due to distance and time, they are not able to complete it until the CNY holiday where their other brothers will be back for the festive occasion. Then, they will have more hands to get the job done. Some of the nieces and nephews can’t wait to sleep up there this coming CNY. I hope no t-slot will be loosen when a few of the “baby elephants” play up there.
The first time I see an indoor water fountain in a home is at one of my church friend’s house. They are rich of course. Living in 3 storey bungalow with a swimming pool. They also have jacuzzi in their master bedroom. If I remember correctly, next to their master bedroom is the room that has the indoor water fountain. They even have a pond with Japanese Carps at below the water fountain. And that room is their prayer room. The room is very cooling and cozy. I wonder whether they went to WaterFountainPros.com for water fountains.
If ever we need to move out from the family house and if we can afford to buy a small piece of land to build our dream house, I want to furnish it with log furniture. You asked me why? Just check out the link. I fall in love with the log furniture featured in the website at first glance. It is so country like which I like. Must hang a deer head on the wall and play Kenny Roger’s song in the house. hehe.
Almost 2 weeks ago, I shared about killing germs in the air using vinegar. Today, I want to share about how to kill germs on the floor using Clorox. There are many floor cleaners that claims they can kill 99% bacteria/germs. No harm trying but killing bacteria and germs using Clorox is a cheaper. I am using the Giant/Tesco floor cleaner (one of the cheapest in the market). I add to it around half a capfull of Clorox into my pail of water. So far, so good. This tips was shared to me by my Singh BIL.
If I have my own home, I wouldn’t buy a leather or pvc sofa. Once it got torn, the leather upholstery repair is quite costly. They may look nice but in long run, it is not that practical unless you have lots of money to repair it or buy a new one. I’ll go for fabric sofa which can easily take off to wash. With many children, cloth sofa is more durable and and practical.
As I look up on the ceiling this morning, I saw thick cluster of dust on the ceiling fan’s blade. I can only sigh because I can’t climb up the ladder to get it clean and I am not allowed to either. Unfortunately, the person that refrained me from cleaning it is so busy with work that he has no time to clean it. Even if we have the Casablanca ceiling fans, it won’t look nice if we don’t have time to wipe out the dust. Maybe I should secretly clean it by myself soon.
With a newborn in the house, we need more bedsheets! Why? Because newborn often vomit, PU and poop. He often vomit because he drinks more than his body required. The bedsheet gets wet because at time, I just wear his cloth nappy. The bedsheet gets poop on it when he poops while I am changing him. Not only the bedsheet, I also need changing. Of all my 6 children, he pooped me the most! Thank God he is on 100% breastmilk, his poo-poo does not stinks like adult’s poo. Oops! To much poo-poo in this post. Sorry ya. hehe. I better head to bedding from DayBeds.com to check out their bedsheet.
Few months ago, hubby told us that he wanted to build a gazebo for us. This is what I imagine our gazebo will look like.
And this is the actual gazebo that is built for us.
It may not look nicer that what I imagined it would be but we have more things in our gazebo. We have the hammock and a pangkin for our children to play. We even have a gate to keep it close when we are not using it so that the dogs won’t destroy the hammock and dirty the pangkin.
Hubby has started asking our 9yo and 7.5yo girls to help wash the dishes. But they can only do the chore one person at a time. It will be faster if we have the double bowl sinks. One person wash and the other rinse.
Even if there is one person doing the washing, I still prefer if we have the double bowl sink. Especially at my parent’s place. The kitchen is small with only one bowl sink and no place to put the soaped plate. So, I have to soap, rinse and place in the drying container then repeat the same for the other plates, one at the time. Wasting time!
Coming Monday is CNY already. CNY comes way too fast this year. I still have not got over our family gathering and Christmas. The CNY mood has not set in yet. Anyway, I have done a few preparation for CNY though. New clothing has been bought except Hats for Men. My hubby is not a hat person. Baked 3 types of cookies and bought some Nyonya pineapple tarts from my mom and stocked up some basic needs for cooking. The only thing that I have not do is complete the minor spring cleaning. I am doing it bit by bit coz of my backache and now tummy cramp and my “help” from my lil ones. Hope to complete them by Friday.
