How do you start your day? With a smile on your face? A little prayer to give thanks? With a cup of tea or coffee? Or just having a deep breath and tell yourself, "I'm ready!"
Like I do all of the above and I'm so crazy doing that kind of stuff like smiling like a nut, so I can feel the good vibes. I got up at half 8. I went to the house and see Mum if she's awake and help her with her breakfast. My mother in law is very independent and always working in the house just this time that she can't do much because of Shingles so I'm giving her a hand. I gave her cereals as she doesn't want to eat porridge. And then give her medication.
Then I started with the tasks at hand. I have to do the washing as I have our laundry basket full. It's not that hard as I just throw them in the washer and the tumble dryer afterwards. Then I do the cleaning. I always start at the toilet. I love to clean when no one is around because cleaning is useless when everyone is walking about. Then I mop the kitchens floor took of the doormat and the small carpet give it a good rub.
I hoover the rest of the house and brush it after spraying some carpet cleaner. I only do this once a week then I can just hoover the whole week. Just to keep our carpet nice and clean. Then I went to the garden to water our tomatoes and give Thumper (our rabbit) carrots only to find out that he's missing. So he must get out and went to the lane because I look for him everywhere and I couldn't find him. The kids will be upset if they do not see him. I went back to the house and had a cup of tea.
While drinking, I'm already thinking about what to cook. And that's when my husband arrived and so I told him about Thumper and he told me that there's nothing we can do, we just have to wait if he comes back. My brother in law phoned me to say that he saw our rabbit away to the lane and that it's gone, it disappears. That's after visiting Mum. The husband said he will come back if he wants to. So we just wait and see.
I told my husband to take me to the shop today as I want to get something for his birthday. I even told him I'm going to buy him an extra extra large brief. Lol. He laughs hard as I'm getting cheeky.
He takes me to the shop but he didn't go with me as he doesn't want to see what I'm getting. And I went first to JD Sports to look for a nice pair of Adidas shoes but nothing of his type and there's a nice blue one but he doesn't like blue shoes. And so off I go to TK Maxx. I have more options in here. I already got his favourite perfume Ultraviolet by Paco Rabanne so I just need some small things to go with it. And for the kids to give to their Dad.
So I soon I get inside, I feel so mad because the store rearrange the aisles and you know that feeling that you know where are the things you looking for and now you don't? So I had a good walk inside.
I was in front of this beard trimmer for quite a while trying to figure out if there's a better one here that I can give to him but end up walking away and finding another.
And oh, Tia would love this section! She loves her princess dress!
And so in the end I end up getting a t-shirt, an adjustable neck lounger where he can put his phone while he's watching something so it's not always falling on his face. It always happens lol, briefs, and a box of his favourite Maltesers chocolate. And my last stop is the Card Shop.
Unlike any country, giving cards is still a big thing here in the UK. Every occasion we give cards. And sometimes cards is already enough. They put money on it, especially on the youngsters.
After that, I went home and went straight to the kitchen to cook. I had an easy menu for today. I sauteed prawns and have it with mixed vegetables and sauce made of soy sauce and the oyster sauce thickened with flour.
And for the husband, I served mashed potato, bacon and beans. British really loves bacon and beans. But not me. Maybe because I'm not British lol.
Then I made Mum fish and chips. She has no appetite and doesn't eat very much so I ask her to eat rice pudding to make sure she had enough and she did.
After that while washing the dishes I saw Thumper hopping in the garden! I run to him and I'm so happy to see him back!!! Ahh good boy he knows where his home is.
The kids, Tia and Jigz are happy to see Thumper and had a good run with him. They didn't know that Thumper was missing for a while and had a walk in the lane. They just thought that Daddy let him out to play with them.
After some cleaning up and get them all fed I sit with Mum and I turn on the TV and play Carry on Movies so there's a reason for her to laugh and after that, we watch Keeping Up Appearances, very funny. And the rest of the day were with the kids, my phone and the fish.
And also today I had a good laugh with Tia as I remind Tia and Jigz that it's their Dad's birthday so they have to write cards to be given to Daddy. Jigz said he is going to buy him sweets as well. And Tia told Lola that she will give daddy a nice birthday present. And when Lola asks what it is she said, "A penguin!" 🤣 She said the gift should be as big as daddy but she's only talking about his belly with baby. That's a pretty hard one to get!
And now I'm writing this and it's past midnight I have the clothes that I washed earlier on in my bed ready to be folded at this hour but let me tell you I'm going to do it tomorrow. I will call it a night. I'm having a rest now. What a great Monday I had!
