I know I haven't written bout Kyra's 5th birthday and many others, but pleaseeeeee.......lemme start with whatever that's on top of my head now, okie? :D Thanks!
So, last weekend was another long weekend since 1st May aka Labour's Day fell on a Sunday, Monday became a public holiday here! So, the Thursday before weekend arrived, I suddenly got inspired to finally get down to making the TEE-PEE that I've planned since 2010! So, off I went to the hardware store to get 5x 8' long wooden dowel (that were later cut down to just 7'). The other 'ingredients' were ready-stock @home anyway.....hehe....
I was determined to get it done in time to kick off our long weekend with lotsa 'faux-camping' fun with the babes....coz I knew they would be thrilled.......so, spent the whole long afternoon measuring, planning, cutting, sewing.......assembling...............Tadaaaaa!!!! DONE on time.....PHEW!
I remembered we have their now-unused baby cot mattress in the storage room....complete with comfy soft jersey fitted sheet :O oooooooo.........so, I pulled that one out of hiding......and quickly put together THIS "scene" below......right before the babes got back from school that Friday afternoon! Wooo...I tell you, they were excited alright! And I thought, might as well do an impromptu family 'BBQ cook-out' that evening itself! So we took out whateva food that's BBQ-able from the fridge, set up a last minute BBQ pit using a wide and low flower pot (BAD BAD idea I tell you, I think the heat cracked the pot a little...LOL! but other than that, the BBQ was a success I tell you!) These 'grilled' tomatoes were SUPER yummy!!! So yummy I didn't have to persuade Kyra to eat her matoes!!!! Ok, here's how you do it........season the tomato slices with salt, pepper and Olive oil! That's it......BBQ it a little....and you'll get these very sweet, tasty tomato slices!!! MUST TRY! And that night, we really 'camped' in the tent! But of course, mid sleep, I had to transfer myself to the daybed coz Gosh! It was kinda horrible sleeping without a mattress...LOL! But what's important is, the babes, especially Kyra really enjoyed the whole tee-pee & cookout weekend!
Am a stay-at-home mummy to 2 little pears who loves most things DIY, home decor, and feels guilty about using plastic bags . Pear is my name (online and referred to by my 2 sistas only), originated from my chinese name Pei actually......but u can call me Joey:)
oves to eat cupcakes!!! :D
I love makin a lot of things, from art to woodworking, but I only do it coz it makes me happy, very happy!!! :) (And being happy is important to me)
Thing is, there's only so much I can make for myself, my two babes, hubby, home and people around me.....thus, I decided to sell the things I make, TWO MAIN reasons actually: a) so I can continue to make more, b) so I might be able to save up enough $ to buy myself an electric sewing machine and a serger (so I don't have to go to the shop to get my buttonholes and serging done each and every time!)because I believe my hobby should pay for itself:)
"happiness is when you can live with imperfections, it's also when you don't seek it.....if something or someone prevents happiness from you, you should just omit the causer from your life! It's really that simple."
