So, it’s been a week since we moved into the new apartment and so far? I’ve been sleeping really comfortably. Due to fatigue and a bad back, I was able to sleep without problems despite the room not very dark with the lack of curtains. We asked someone to drill through the cement wall to attached the railings and he promised to come “immediately madam, just let me get my tools” (this was last Wednesday) and for two days he did not show up. His tools must be in Timbuktu.
I got fed up of calling him like we’re at his mercy so I asked around for an electric drill and wanted to bore the wall myself. If you want to get things done, you just gotta work it yourself!! But my back snapped at me and I couldn’t even hold the drill properly while standing on a high ladder so my superwoman plan was scooped out. Bleh. It would have been fun to do it myself. (In hubby’s defense, he always come home beyond 9pm so it’s too late to do drilling – we might upset the neighbors)
Most of our things from the old apartment building have been moved and organized with a few bits and bobs still on the floor including posters. There was one poster though that took time to hit the wall:
Pristine loves this poster and we go through it almost everyday. She can locate some countries without help or hints. She always first points at Japan though and asks why it’s so small but when we go there, it’s big? LOL
Anyway, my mom has mentioned a few days ago that there’s a certain bird that frequents the small space outside our living room window. The morning after we moved in, we found this:
Nothing beats free nature lessons for Pristine! I am so excited for her because she haven’t seen a nest or a bird’s egg before. We will see in the coming days what will happen. Our little detective is closely following up on the case and diligently reporting to me when I get home (and it’s too dark I couldn’t see the nest anymore!).
In the two days I spent at home because of my back injury, I’ve seen the bird sit on the nest but there’s still only one egg so I told my mom: “Why only one egg? I thought birds lay more!” to which my mom replied, “Well, just like the owners of this house! I thought they’d have more babies too!”
Right. Thanks, mom. Ouch.
Lastly, have to mention that just before we moved last Friday, we had sushi:
I don’t eat raw fish so I make maki rolls for myself and Pristine. The sushi dinner was for the hubs so he has some energy for our big day the next day. And it seemed to work – he did not break his back despite carrying the heavy stuff!
