Melbourne Grand Prix

Hubby is off to Albert Park today to watch the race. Good thing weather is fine since yesterday. Cold but not rainy and wet anymore. Hopefully, Lewis Hamilton wins it:)

Tipid mode so standing room only hehe:)

Earlier this morning we were off to church. It's our second time to attend and I like it there. Nix enjoys the kids church and I'm so happy because even if it was just her second time to attend, we were able to leave her there and attend the service with no crying or clinging incident. I even picked her up late cause we made chika after the service and when I came to their room she was the only kid there holding hands with her teacher:)

I think our little girl is really ready for school:)

I think it would be nice if I could post photos here...just have to figure out how to upload them from the camera:)
Went to the Melbourne Aquarium last friday and Nix had a blast and was so giddy with excitement when she saw the penguins. She loved them!
It was also our first time to go around the city. Just took the train and it was all walk from there. But the weather was nice and cool, perfect for strolling. Yes there were lots of people in the city but I didn't feel crowded at all walking around. Looking forward to seeing more of melbourne in the coming weeks:)

It was hubby's day off from work yesterday and we went malling. It was a public holiday so there were lots of people in the mall as well. First stop, went inside Pumpkin Patch where I saw some really cute girly stuff.  They already have coats and boots out, but a bit pricey so went out empty handed. Proud of myself though:) Then also went inside Harris Scarfe and spent a bit more time here. I just love going through the aisles of pots and pans and linens:) Was really thinking if I should buy a new frying pan with a lid or just buy a lid for the one I had at home. I didn't see any frying pan I fancied but I saw that the roasting pan I wanted was on sale for $25. It was $99 last time we went there so I got one. Thinking of roasting a chicken one these days to put my purchase to good use:) Next stop was the chemist where I got some vitamins and bubble bath for the bulilit. Then off to our favorite, Kmart.(where we always seem to end up haha) Finally got Nix the toy stroller she always plays with every time we go to a toy store. Got myself a frying pan lid, which I figured was cheaper than buying a new pan. After a few more store visits and a potty break went home happy though a bit broke:) Went to the nearby playground ( with stroller and dolly in tow) for a while to catch some fresh breeze. Weather was great yesterday, sunny and cool. It was a great day to spend with the family, kind of my day off too:)

One sunday afternoon

I love reading blogs. I appreciate the generosity of these people to share their thoughts and interests to virtual strangers such as me:) I've had my share of starting a blog in the past but was not really great following up on it but this time I will try to blog more often.
You see, I'm currently a stay-at-home mom to a bundle full of energy, the princess of our home. With this come lots of joys and lots of daily hurray moments, but there are the not so fun challenges as well. Like dealing with tantrums...(oh the terrible two's) So I think this will be good, being on the other side of the fence and trying on blogging and sharing even the most mundane, ordinary, unimaginative fickle random thought:)
