Post Holiday Blues

Everyone needs a holiday after a holiday, don’t you agree? We had so much fun in Penang that we are not functioning well post holiday. Darling had to get back to work straight on Monday, pity that fella but I had it so hard; with piles and piles of dirty laundry and so much cleaning up to do. Even my blog posting has been quite messy as I don’t have the time to really sort things out. 

Darling and I are not the only ones affected by the post holiday blues though. Ayden longs for a swim again..

He’s making sure we hear him by placing that neck ring float on him during meal time. I swear it was not me who put it there on him, okay?

And… we had to feed him through that! >_<

I am down with a bad flu. I don’t know if it is really flu or just my reaction towards dust as I have been busy cleaning up the house for my sis-in-law’s wedding. My in-laws are expected to rest or put up the night at our place so I am diligently cleaning up every nook and cranny of the house. The positive side is my house finally has floors! And they are white! I’ve not seen the floors in my house for so long that I don’t even remember how my floor tiles look like. Now that I can see them, I am reminded of how ugly they are :( My greatest regret was not replacing those tiles before moving in last time. To do it now will be so inconvenient with the mess, dust and all so I’ll just have to live with that. I love every part of my house except the floor tiles. No wonder I kept scattering things over them. I was actually trying to camouflage them :P

    haha.. you found your floor finally! :)
    Changing the floor tiles will cost a bomb.. I guess.

    • //

      Exactly. Not only will cost a bomb but the mess.. I can’t take it. It must be done before moving in.

    Haha. Glad you did some spring cleaning and discover your floor tiles. You must be busy with your sil’s wedding.

    Who doesn’t want another holiday after another?? Just that money is not enough….for me! ^^

      I’m not actually busy with my sil wedding. I’m only busy cleaning the house. Haha.

    Speedy recovery to you!!

      Thank you Hayley. I’m all good now :)

    I totally agree!

    As a kid, I’ll get it really bad, I’ll start counting the days till the end of the vacation as soon as I landed! I couldn’t help it, I loved travelling but doing that really ruined the trip so my dad talked to me about looking at it the other way. I forgot what he said (was really young at the time) but it seemed to have worked! :)

      Aiseh. I was hoping you’d remember so I can share your dad’s wise words with my kids too.

    Hope flu goes away soon. Ayden is really cute to put the neck ring float on his face and you are even cuter to feed him through the float.

    Actually you can install artificial wooden floor board over your floor tiles. Not really messy and really easy to install. Some people DIY it themselves.
