Some updates about me…

December 17, 2013

Hi everyone, seasons greetings to all of you! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday which is only days away! As for me, I’m thoroughly enjoying being a mum and spending every second with my precious boy hence the lacking of posts. And here is a quick update on what’s happening…

1. After a long time of searching for the perfect new home, my hubby and I have finally found the place. It is located in a beautiful stroller (as well as pet) friendly area and we have just moved in recently. So far I still have lots of boxes to unpack, and styling of the house is not completely done yet. Interior design has always been my hobby so this is the perfect opportunity for me to put my ideas into practice!  I would love to show you my new place (including my custom built closet) one day :-)

2. My boy is 4 months old, and watching him grow and smile at me are the most rewarding and delightful moments in my life now. I have so much admiration for other mothers who choose to stay home to look after their children – it is a much harder job than anything else! I am a very hands-on mum  just completely exhausted at the end of the day, and there is no ‘day off’.

3.  As a result of lacking of motivation, as well as spending a great amount of time in front the TV to catch up on the Kardashian family businesses lol, my weight is still the same as the previous update and it is very frustrating! So I have enrolled myself into the gym and I’m loving the feeling of working out again (I highly recommend the Elixr health club if you like all sort of pilates and yoga), and hopefully I’ll see some great results soon.

What beauties, the pair of you! I can’t wait to see your completed place — my idea of interior decorating stops shortly after “do not smear poop on the walls”.

Thanks Kate! Lol that’s exactly what my mum said to me when I tried to paint my bedroom last time!

Thanks Petrina! I am so exhausted everyday and would love to hear some tips on parenting from you :-)

Lol my tip is to go out everyday! Swimming, gymbaroo, mothers group, play dates. I’m more social now than ever ( oops I mean Sebbie!).

Thanks for the updates! Your baby is beyond beautiful!! Thanks for sharing that lovely picture.

I would love to see pictures of your new home and closet. You have such great taste! I’m a big fan of your blog. I’m sure it’s hard to keep up with the blog since you’re a new mom. My hubby and I don’t have kids yet…maybe in the next couple years. So i look forward to any feedback on adjusting to being a new mom and on what i could expect :)

Congrats on your new home. How exciting!

Thanks for your kind comment Jeslynj! Being a new mum is really really hard and joyful at the same time. It’s a completely different lifestyle and everything else that used to have priority are on the backburner!

Gorgeous baby boy, and you look absolutely stunning!

I’m a fan of your blog (though I think this is my first post), but I just wanted to congratulate you and your family on the new home, and wishing you a wonderful holiday season! I’m excited to see your future posts!

Thank you Christina! Hopefully I will have more time to blog after my house is done :-)

I love the sweet pictures of your baby! Staying at home can be exhausting- I hope you are able to get out even to run errands alone sometimes. I coffee and a solo trip to Target makes a world of difference :) Congrats on the new place too!

Reika December 18, 2013 at 1:57 pm

Lol Martha. What you said wouldn’t make any sense to me if I didn’t have kids, and these days I am happy just to get out of my house and get some fresh air!

oh, how time flies! He’s sooo big already. You look gorgeous and the gym is not necessary at all! Or only as some time off to spend on your own!

Reika December 18, 2013 at 2:25 pm

Thanks darl! I definitely need the gym to keep me motivated!
