DIY update

by jona on Thursday, June 21, 2012

Hello there! So in one of my recent posts, I have mentioned taking photos of changes we had done to the house. After some thinking, I'm not sure if I'm going to do that anymore :/ because 1. I didn't really take any photos lol and 2. well it seems like I'm bragging a bit too much? and there's nothing really to brag about because it's not an actual renovation i.e. no walls were knocked down and therefore nothing major was really done. But don't worry I will soon be bragging about the kitchen even though its only a paint job :)

Yes it will soon be 100% done! After being 85% done for so long! like around 2 years! hah! Here is a little preview.

One side primed.
I hope to finish before the weekend! Anyway have to keep this short as I still have to wash my grubby little munchkin! and then I can finally do some painting! yay! :)


Mother's Love

So yesterday Aaron and I took Max to the Werribee Zoo to see the lions and the elephants (the pawooo and raaahhh as Max calls them). But as we arrived at the zoo we realised they didn't have elephants.. uh oh! Lets hope the lil man forgets.. he didn't but he got to see the lions and the monkeys so he wasn't as upset. Phew!

My two preciouses.
After the zoo, we had some snacks at one of the town's cafes. As we were eating the following conversation took place between Max and I:

Me: I love you Max, do you love mummy?
Max: No.
Me: Aww (as I pretend to cry). Do you love mummy?
Max: No.
I gave up, knowing I wasn't going to get a yes that day and said: "It's ok Max, I'll still love you even if you don't love me back".

Aaron looked up as if he couldn't believe I had said it lol. Which was fair enough, I mean even I was shocked that came out of my mouth. Being an only child, I didn't have to worry about siblings or anyone but myself and that's all that mattered. I have never felt a love so unconditional, so pure. I guess this is what motherhood is all about :)

Hope you're all having a good weekend! xx

That's right! Posting two days in a row! Making up for lost times! haha! 

So anyways, I've been really obsessed with Pinterest lately and have been pinning all day everyday since I became a member. Its like my very own virtual vision board. It keeps me motivated and inspired! Here are just some of my pins:
I guess Pinterest got me started with blogging again :) though I'm afraid not working for Abby lol.

Wow!! I am really feeling sorry for this blog as it has been neglected quite a bit that I couldn't even remember the login! :(. So much have changed around the house that I don't even really know where to start either. I might have to do a one massive one I guess and then decide whether I need to create a separate post for it. So over the weekend hopefully I get to take pictures of the house and show you what's been done. This is considering of course Max lets me, who by the way is now 2 and a half years old and is quite a cheeky lil munchkin! How time flies, right? So you might get a glimpse of the little guy in some, if not all of the photos lol.

the loud to my quite! xx
But I guess in the mean time, I'll share my current house decorating dilemma ;). So I am thinking of doing one of those inspirational text wall art somewhere in the kitchen. Like all my house plans, I have photoshoped the wall art in places I thought would look good.
Photoshoped wall art featuring Moo Moo the cat.
Yes, as you can see I still have my beautiful yellow bench top and of course the lovely orange and brown tiles. I am still confused as to which one to do. I like both of them. What do you think?
