christmas day

christmas is truly wonderful when spend with loveones and especiall with little children. The delight of my little boy's face when he open the door from the bedroom with me waiting to greet him "merry christmas and look what santa had brought you" then he runs toward the living room to see his presents under the tree that he saw for the first time saying WOWW!!! Priceless!!!

3 days before christmas

its christmas again!  This year i started my decor a bit late 3 days before christmas and the christmas tree would be put up the night before christmas.  well simply because of my hyperactive toddler.  I desperately wanted a more tradional decor but i couldnt get myself to buy another xmas tree even though today i saw the tree in ikea gone down to 9.50£.  steve suggested a real spruce but the tought of hovering all the droppings from it.  anyway i will see,  its still 3 days to go.
this will be my sweets corner

ginger bread house but not real ginger bread.

MIDWEEK MOOD: get well my baby!!

Our weekend was spend caring for my baby who finally catch the colds virus.  This was the 2nd time he got ill but the first one he didnt have a lot of mucus. It started on friday afternoon when he started moaning and i suspect that his throat was hurting.  i decided to give him ibuprufen but he threw up.  threwing up all his meals that day.  The next day he was not in good mood and refuse to eat anything.  so i decided to take him to the doctor.  I continue giving ibuprufen every 6 hrs 3x a day until sunday then monday he seems to be feeling better so i gave him only 2 doses.  At night we also use KARVOL vaporizer which works well unblocking his nose and giving him a good night  sleep.
moan, moan , moan with his bunny

feeling a lot better!

portabello street

Portabello Street is my fav for shopping vintages.  here you find retro from 50's and 60's.  The best time to shop on this market are when its nearly their closing time before 5 pm.  Then the try to sell everytime for real bargain price just to get rid of it. 
just love this pastel colorful  street

i was going to buy this but i end up buying the spit fire replica model instead.

Just me...

was in cardiff for a weekend, decided to take pics before going out for dinner.  I wore this red dress that i've only worn once during my pregnancy.  yes, it is the same dress thats on the title of this blog.  The view behind is cardiff bay.

Update at home

Well the news!  i am going to rent it out since the value is not worth selling it at the moment.  I dont know when we will be here but at the moment trying to enjoy every moment in it.  I have to rearrange some of the furniture since JC is now a hyperactive toddler. 

Out and about with my Mountain Buggy

Love this new MOUNTAIN BUGGY that we recently bought from john lewis.  This is my 5th one and i promise that it would be the last.  At first i  couldnt justify paying a lot of money for a buggy but now i know how important to have a good pushchair in london and especially if you dont drive a car.  This is going to be a great use when we move to wales as well.  This type of buggy would suit parents if you are like us who loves to go out for a run and long walks on a rough terrain.  Its so light to push and easy to fold.

look how cute he is on it!

love being out and about now that i have this great looking and effecient buggy.
