Yesterday, today, tomorrow

When I got home yesterday, our glass vase already had an identical twin vase and was holding this delicately twirled bamboo (and some more flowers that we couldn’t identify).

Hubs also bought some rattan holders.

They sure are so pretty to behold they practically make us bubbly.

My nasal allergies got worse again today. Oh please leave me now allergies as I’ve got a big day tomorrow. It’ll be my first day at work after almost 8 and half months!!

Early to bed now.

Blooms!

Hubs went out to buy minced lean chicken and pork and pumpkin, all for Yui’s dinner. He went home bringing more – strawberries (and condensed milk too!) and flowers and new plants! Now the dining area looks like this.

The petite lavender dahlias now occupy the mini basket Hubs gave me for valentines this year (the ivy and begonia didn’t survive). It’s my first to see red carnations too!

Ahhh. Thankful for Hubs’ hobby. ๐Ÿ™‚

With Hello Kitty! ๐Ÿ˜€

magnet umbrella stand

We previously have a ceramic umbrella stand by our doorstep.

20130207-013449.jpg

It broke early December however. And for almost two months, we used it albeit broken, for lack of the time to do the shopping and for the difficulty of finding a replacement – they’re either beyond my budget or very heavy.

Last week, Mayumi and I went shopping for my advance Valentines gift for Atsushi – a portable book box. And in the process, found the perfect umbrella stand for our home.

It’s magnet type so I can just stick it on our door. Talk about space saver. Loving it.

Hello Kitty T rolls

Had a long inner debate whether to post this or not. But they’re just so cute not to share.

Went inside a drug store to buy a small pack of wet tissue. But Mayumi and I saw these and of course we just had to buy although we still have quite a number of rolls at home. ๐Ÿ˜€

Pink one is candy scented while the green one is melon scented. ๐Ÿ™‚

baby cabinet and baby bed

Finally, our baby’s cabinet has been delivered! I so love the engraved mickey head.

20120908-215637.jpg

It came already assembled but sans the mickey head handle. So while brother and sister (hubs and Mayumi) took care of assembling baby’s crib (baby’s crib is just right beside my side of the bed. Perfect arrangement),

20120908-220002.jpg

I installed the mickey head handles. Voila! ๐Ÿ™‚

Giggles on the mickey heads.

After roughly more than one hour of assembly, crib is all up and ready! ๐Ÿ™‚

20120908-221046.jpg

One thing I love with this type of crib is that one side can be lowered. So while sleeping, I can lower down the slide for easy access to baby.

No worries on baby falling because baby’s bed and my bed is jammed up tight (foam is askew in the photo hence the seeming gap).

Now we just have to wait for the futon that we’ve just ordered from Rakuten. Cutie isn’t it?

——-
I’m a very satisfied Rakuten customer actually.

The Mickey baby cabinet we bought at 29,800 yen is really reasonable considering the price of the cabinets we’ve previously purchased from our friendly neighbour furniture shop. You can also select the color of the cabinet (either black or white) and the mickey head handles (comes in white, semi-transparent, blue, pink, black, yellow and of course red). The best part is that it’s wooden and not plastic.

The 7-set futon is at 21,000yen compared to the 5-set futon sold in Keikyu mall at 39,800yen.

green thumb hubby

I just can’t get enough of melons recently. Thankfully hubs is all too patient to buy even when it’s heavy to carry along with the other groceries.

Little did I know, Hubs planted the melon seeds we had last Saturday. There was still nothing on the pot this morning. But lo and behold after 12 hours!

20120808-220250.jpg

Hubs is just amazing with plants! I forgot already if we had honeydew or the cantaloupe variety last weekend. Curious and excited!
