Splashing in Puddles Day for Alfie

It has been raining a lot for these past couple of days, so we've been having miserable days indeed! But it didn't stop us from visiting them Thursday and stayed overnight. First words I heard him saying was "mommy boots, puddles". They then explained to us what it was all about.... that he had to walk through going to his Nanna's house with his mum wearing his boots (they only live close to each other), and making splash in puddles along the road.
Here he is with hubby, outside my in-law's house. He cried a lot after we got back from Tesco as he wanted to go straight to their house, not his Nanna's house. So hubby had to stay outside with him and making big splash in puddle right in front of their together. We all then heard his cheeky laugh. He was trying to jump bigger on it, to get a bigger splash!!!I really enjoyed watching them while taking photos....

Don't Pay For Free Coupons For EBay?

As many of you know eBay has coupons that allow you to save when making a purchase. The problem is that these coupons are free and there are lots of people out there who are selling lists of these coupons.

Some of these lists that people are buying don't even work any more and this is why. When the coupon numbers are created there is a set dollar amount that is assigned to it. Once that dollar amount has been reached then the coupon will no longer work. There are many places online where you can get these coupons for free. But be aware that just because you have the code doesn't mean it is going to work. eBay coupons are used up very quickly and if you get one that has been used up you will just have to go get another one and give it a shot.

It can be a hit and miss process but in the end you will end up saving yourself a lot of money with very little work. But you don't have to take my word for it. If you are already a eBay shopper than you will be able to save yourself a bundle if not and this is your first time shopping on eBay than you can make your first experience that much better.

Don't fall into the mistake that many have made by paying for you coupons that may not even work. Make sure you get them for free and use them as quick as possible because they do stop working quickly. But there will always be another on out there that you can find and use. If you would like to find out more about eBay coupons you can
Click Here and visit a blog all about ebay Coupons. The main thing you must remember is that these coupons are free. No matter what anyone says you can find them and use them without having to pay for them.

Pamper Yourself With Modern Beds

It has almost been three years since we acquired our flat. But we then didn't really bother to buy new furniture, bedding, appliances, etc. since we were both working in Angola! To be honest with you, when we first moved in here we got my husband's sister's old bed, and sofa from his parents.

However, as years gone passed, they are not as comfortable as they were years ago especially the bed! Thought we both deserve a new one, we deserve a treat! Why not, right? Since we have been working so hard....

Photo above is a Palermo Divan bed, this is what we both wanted to buy, which is apparently has an incredible storage capacity since this comes with under bed drawers that can be used for various purposes. This will also remove the need of fitting clothes under the beds as well as you need not struggle anymore to try and fit boxes underneath the bed.

A sound sleep is something that many people crave for all their life. To be able to achieve it, it is essential to have a good, reliable bed to sleep on right? Metal Beds
would do as well, but then our flat is in the 2nd floor, so, it is not quite a good idea really.

Alfie Ready To Go Home

I always miss Alfie a lot (hubby's nephew), and we make sure to see him at least once a week (when my in-laws have him). There was never been a visit without a single click of my camera. So its like I have a weekly photo diary of him. This was taken last week.

He was ready to go home after a day with his Nanna and Grandad, in his smart look while saying goodbye to his TV mates playing on (In The Night Garden) - childrens' DVD and one of his favorites.

Low Cost Car Rental Online

Do you travel a lot to different countries? Let say we are new to that particular country or place, is it not the main concern would always be on how to wander around and explore cities without losing time in catching up public transports like trains and bus. We know that taking public transports is way cheaper than taking a taxi in every place we wanted to visit. However, there is always a disadvantage on this, we tend to walk more too since they do stop only in stations especially trains. So what is the best solution then?

Apparently, car hire provides the low cost which you can still save money, an online car hire specialist, and regarded as one of the leading international car rental brokers with a worldwide network of more than 2,400 car hire locations in over 60 countries. EasyCar offers a wide range of vehicles for your car hire from super-mini and compact cars to MPV's and luxury cars at great value for money. All we do is to get online and book through there, select the country and that's it, easy and simple.

Lucky that I have found this car hire Glasgow since we are going to spend at least a week through 'til the Easter Sunday in Scotland. We don't need to worry about of getting around, we have decided to hire one car from them.

Our Trip to Dover - The White Cliff City

Buckland Hospital (where I had my scan) is in Dover, still part of Kent. We left home with the sun shining, but it was raining as soon as we got there. It would have been nice to see its beauty if it was only a very good day! To see the result of my scan, please read "Our Bundle of Joy".

Dover is where one of the most famous landmarks of Kent located - The White Cliff
, which form part of the British coastline facing the Straight of Dover and France. We took this photo from a distance, it was quite busy with the lorries coming in and going out the country.

The cliffs have great symbolic value for Britain because they face towards Continental Europe across the narrowest part of the English Channel, where invasions have historically threatened and against which the cliffs form a symbolic guard. Because crossing at Dover was the primary route to the continent before air travel, the white line of cliffs also formed the first (or last) sight of the UK for travellers.

We didn't manage to get a good location to have taken a photo of Dover Medieval Castle. Constructed around the same time as the Tower of London (late 11th century), Dover Castle stands as one of the earliest castles built by William the Conqueror after his conquest of Anglo-Saxon England. Duke William had the castle built near an old Roman lighthouse and burgh, which King Harold (the last Saxon king of medieval England) established sometime before the Norman invasion in 1066. None of William’s constructions, however, survive to this day. The great keep dates back to King Henry II’s reign in the 1180s and is still there today.

Live in the UK Test Book

Thanks to my new friend Marifen for posting about having a test when applying for a visa (British Nationality or Indefinite Leave to Remain), which I didn't know about this thing before. Lucky me that I bumped into her blog and have found out about this book. Thanks sister, I will owe you if I pass the test..:) Thanks for sharing your experience to your readers..

I bought one in Amazon (£2 cheaper) than in WHSmith, have started reading it already, and have found it very helpful, practical information about United Kingdom (have to memorize most).

We are going to Central London by early April to start my application. As of the moment, what hubby and I are aware of that, I am qualified to apply for this Indefinite Leave to Remain, otherwise, will have another option if to be given.

Will keep you posted for any progress soon.

We Have Made The Most Of The Sunshine

We have been having sunshine since Sunday until today, it has been lovely days. Therefore, we tried to enjoy it as much as we can because it only happens for couple of weeks every year.

We have been doing some gardening, raking off dry leaves and mowing long grasses. Then we went to DIY shop to buy some gardening equipments and some summer seeds too. So, in a short period of time we are going to have beautiful garden which was being left untouched and full of rubbish since the last time we were here last September. Can't really wait to see my garden full of gorgeous flowers.In addition to gardening, we also managed to accomplish some more like going back to the NHS office to submit our application for free health services, and paying Council Taxes too.

If the day starts with the sun shining, its always nice to go out isn't it?

What Have You Done Since High School?

To be honest with you guys, I really have missed my high school days. However, as much as I love my high school years, I hate going back though. What I have been longing is to meet some of my classmates who are in other countries now other than their home town, and have thought of having our first time ever high school reunions, but then contacting all of our classmates would be a little bit of a nightmare.

After high school, I went off to Cebu to have worked in a department store for a year then I was so blessed of my Auntie to have offered to have sent me to university, but have had to go to Manila and she had to chose the course for me to take, which I liked it in the long run. I graduated, and managed to get a job right after graduation. However, not even two years of working in Manila, I applied for a job abroad which I was accepted! It was year 2001 until February this year.

While working in Angola, I met my husband (we first became friends, then lovers for almost 4 years), and he then proposed to marry him! We finally got married last November 30, 2007. Now, we are expecting our first baby....

How about you guys? What have you been doing since high school? You can share yours here too.

The Beaulieu Abbey - Day 3

This Abbey is also at the same area as Motor Museum at Beaulieu, so very convenient to see not only once place at the same time!
It was founded by King John in 1204, was, for three hundred years, the largest Cistercian monastery in England, however many of its buildings were destroyed during the Reformation in 1538. A film presentation and and exhibition tell the story of the Abbey and the life of its monk founders and impressive wall hangings depict scenes from its history. Take a stroll in the fragrant Cloisters, planted with sweet smelling herbs.

The Palace House

The Palace House was created in 1538. Formerly the Great Gatehouse of Beaulieu Abbey, the monastic origins of Palace House can clearly be seen as you walk through the magnificent Lower Drawing Room and spacious Dining Hall. You'll receive a warm and friendly welcome from household characters of the Victorian era and learn what life was really like "Upstairs and Downstairs". Enjoy delving into the Montagu family's past and see many rare and fascinating family treasures, portraits and photographs.
The Secret Army Exhibition tells the story of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) which trained secret agents at the Beaulieu 'Finishing School' during WWll. The exhibition introduces visitors to the training schools, instructors, secret agents and unsung heros of the SOE, their training and secet missions.

Advantages of a Smart Garden Office

Sounds really interesting to bring business at home, in a gorgeous garden being surrounded by natural resources like flowers, plants, etc... Realizing that there could be no better place to fulfill your dream of having a small office amidst the greenery of nature.

Apparently, many people choose to use a spare room of their home to use for their business. If there isn’t an extra room, they may simply section off a corner of a room for their desk and other office supplies, however, garden offices are one room outbuildings that are designed to house everything you need to properly work at in a spacious area other than home. The commute is just a short walk away from your home, but the space your business will be entitled to is worth every step.

Plus it solved
the issues related to a constrained budget, especially if you could not afford to buy a plot and then spend loads of money building a proper building at the same.

Diamond Industry Distress Worsens

You may guys wonder that until now we or at least hubby is still here in the UK spending his vacation, which only supposed to be a month only and would have been back to Angola to go back to work again. However, it has already been more than a month since we've arrived. Could it happened for some reason other than recession or we really both wanted to stay together at least until I give birth?...

Well, I remember when I first got pregnant by early last year, we both didn't want to stay away from each other (we were not ready to separate) even if it would meant for me to stay in the bush while pregnant! However, I had miscarriage and we were in deep distress, and feeling so unlucky to have lost our twin babies. Everything happens for a reason, I do believe that. While recession hasn't been hit globally specifically diamond industry yet, though we lost one thing, but we gained another thing, of being confident of staying jobless in the future which we thought it might happen. Which it does happen right now......

First reason is, he finished his work permit just 2 days after we left Angola last first week of February and there is no certainty if and when they are going to organize its renewal, the fact that they can't be able to sell their production, in short, no incomings financially while still spending millions every month, and this is the second reason why they haven't let people on vacation to return work yet. In fact, January and February salaries are still on hold due to financial crisis.

The good thing about it is that, at least he's with me while battling with my cravings and would be nice if he'd be here until I give birth. It could be anytime soon he'll go back but still no news about it yet!

Again, it depends on the diamond market.

Anytime Is Tea Time

I have gradually learned from my English husband their love of tea. In fact, early in the morning I've always get offered with a cup of tea, while sitting down and talking about things. It is true that this is traditional thing for English people, and that however big a problem, it can be made to feel smaller by sitting down and talking over a CUP OF TEA, between friends or family.

When I learned eating short breads, I would always have them with a cup of tea. Indeed, teas are very satisfying. I remember when we visited my husband's brother down in Cornwall, we went to their Cream tea house - CREAM TEA
has recently been adopted where scones, with clotted cream and jam, are made the main attraction served alongside a steaming pot of tea. It was my first time but absolutely gorgeous and lovely taste with the tea.

I believe that anytime of the day, English people think having teas more than they think of anything else. Even while driving and before going back home, they always think of having a nice cup of tea when we get home. It already made a habit for me to prepare the tea pot every time we've got a visit from my in-laws, and they always ask for a cup of tea than coffee.

At English Tea Store, you could choose varieties of English tea bags, various tea gift ideas, British foods, teapots and mugs, tea sets and other accessories. So start shopping your various tea needs.

National Motor Museum at Beaulieu - Day 3

Our last day was planned to go to this famous motor museum at BEAULIEU, New Forest seeing legendary World Record Breakers like Bluebird and Golden Arrow. Get close to "Film Star" cars, Formula 1 racers (including one of the cars used by Damon Hill in his World Championship year), touring limousines and family cars from the 30s, 40s and 50s.

See motoring eccentricities, such as a giant orange on wheels, as well as a host of motorbikes and commercial vehicles.

Fascination motoring memorabilia, displays and a 1930s street scene, complete with a full scale replica of a typical country garage, packed full of tools and facts of the era, help re-create an altogether less hurried time of shops, vehicles and trades people.

Car on photo below - "Ford Poplar", used to be my parents-in-law's first car which cost them £25 in 1967, black version of this one!

You choose which one you like, so I can buy and send them over to you..:)
