One month...

It has been one month since we arrived here at Notts...

Alhamdulillah, we have managed to almost 99% settled down..we got a house, car, Zharfan enrolled to school, me started my study proper...except for one more thing...hubby is still looking for a part-time job here. Life is not as easy as in Msia where hubby got monthly income...hoping that hubby gonna start working soon, Insya Allah..

anyway, we do love staying here...for UK is pretty safer place to live, and groceries shopping is a lot cheaper compared to Msia...but on the other side, services are quite expensive here, like for a car to be repaired it is very2 expensive..and here we got to pay tv licence annually, which costs around GBP 150, and the car insurance is more expensive than the car price the gas/heater bill which is not cheap...phew..

anyway we do love car boot sale here...something that we can't find in Malaysia..babies/kids toys are plentiful and cheap of course, household deco/souveniers...etc

and here in UK, the things at is very wide range to choose from, and there's free stuff to collect at freecycle too!!

and me love Mothercare as well, the outlet is sooo big and spacious, variety of items to choose from for lil ones!! we have yet to 'visit' IKEA notts branch yet..gonna do that soon :p

staying in UK makes me a better housewife- in terms of cooking...i do cook everyday now..:p well, eating out is also possible here, but of course not all the times like we used to do in Msia ;)

Contest - Saat Indah Itu

Mrs Zaidi is having the above on the banner or HERE for further info..

I'm here is my entry..

My wedding date : 16th July 2004
Spouse's name : Mr Rohisham
Our jewels of heart : Zharfan & Ariff

Answering contest question : Tarikh pernikahan Wana & Eddie : 24 Nov 2007

Here is our happy family pic..

My short love story..

well..we had our first date sometime in Feb 2004, and after series of dating (tapi tak de lah byk sgt pun), we decided that YESSS...we are destined for each we tied our knot 5 months after the first date!! pretty fast huh tak bertunang pun..but that is what people call 'JODOH'..

o yess...I fell in love with my hubby masa first date tu...but of course I kept it in my heart(takkan nak ckp pulak kan..) well..cupid's dart seems to beat to his heart too...he said he also fell in love with me the same time I felt that 'feeling' here we are...dah kawin 5 tahun lebih pun...

my hubby and my kids are the most special person in this world (other than my mom & dad)...coz he is my soul partner..and my kids complete my life..truly

hubby did sacrifice a lot...especially his career..first he resigned and cari keje near my workplace(leaving his good-paid-job right after we got married), and now hubby resign accompany me to study...a GREAT sacrifice which is not an easy one for a MAN I believe..

one more thing...hubby has been helping a lot with house work and chid care..I really appreciate what he has been doing for me...Thanks God for sending my hubby with all his love for me & kids..

last but not least..

this contest offers an attractive prize to ONE winner ie 2 days 1 nite stay at Seri Costa Hotel Malacca on Valentine day!! soooo romantic!!

Weekend activities in Notts...yeah...we love WEEKENDS!!!

Spending weekend in Notts is somehow different from terms of actvities....

One of the top in the list of our FAV is---CAR BOOT SAL!E!!! yeah..we don't have that in yesterday, me and my family (together with Farizah's + Siti Omra-->all 3 cars inclu ours) went to car boot sale in Derby (about 15 miles from Notts)...well...that's aout first car boot car sale trip since we arrived ahere..simply because the weather has been pretty bad and awfully cold, and we had yet to buy car for the past few weekends here..

so what did i get from my first car boot sale 'visit'??
nothing much...few stuff for zharfan & ariff (toys, bedroom slippers), a duo stroller (fairly still ok to be used )..and few pieces of crystal souvenirs as well!!!

our other last weekend activities include - pick up a tv from a friend's hse (she' going bakc to msia for good), groceries shopping @Asda, and some household shopping @Collins-- that include small carpets for our living room ;)

my lil Ariff @ our small living room (see the pic of his toys that we bought from car boot sale ;)

-->this is the pic of our very" small living room..with the new small carpet, and a new tv- tomorrow baru dpt kabel/channel tv huhuhu-
