i planned to work this weekend, i was extremely excited about it. my weekend work is by far more exciting and more fulfilling than my weekday work. plus i have the cutest bosses.

this time, my colleague (aka hubby) and i went full force. we started very early (at 730am) and was done by midday. my hubby is an all or nothing person. most of the time, he's at the "nothing" level but when he's at the "all" level, he would do more than i expect. yesterday he went wall to wall, floor to ceiling. proud and surprised...that's how i feel.

we started by moving ariff's changing table from our room to the boys' room. ariff have been taking his bath in the boys' bathroom together with his abang long and abang. so its only natural that we move his changing table and clothes. i started to store all the smaller baby clothes (got a bit nostalgic doing that but three is enough we thinks).

with the changing table out of our room, i moved the cot away from our bed. after one and a half years...i finally get to step on the floor next to my side of the bed. i also moved amir and asyraf's mattress aside and let them have their own space.

then we vacuumed, mopped, cleaned and wiped all the bedrooms upstairs and all the rooms downstairs. hubby opened all the windows and door, vacuumed every inch of the window frame (this bit even i dont do), cleaned every sliding door.

it was so wonderful to see our house actually looking like a live-able place, even the outside looks clean. hubby said he wanted to drive out from the driveway and back in again just to have that "wowww" feeling. i think too much cleaning affected his head a wee bit...erk!

thank God one of our little pengacaus slept while we did our cleaning. one more played outside while the other happily entertained himself in the exersaucer. then he too fell asleep.

that night we went for a dinner at friday's for tisu's belated birthday. the sirloin was yummmms.

tiza hates this but dont they look like triplets? wish i had a photo of the three of them together...

normal...tu lah. mmg we were waiting for the meal to end the day. even tho meal tu utk org lain...hehe pix lah. kan camera out of service. the current one byk pix with a sibuk hand buat sorang2. sometimes i get hubby to leave the house with the boys so that i have the house all to myself, i can blast the radio while i do work. then they come back, rumah lawaaaa je :)

dot...over lah tu can smell all the way from your house. have to pass 2 tolls tu :) haiyoo my syam without the H dah perasan over2 dah ni...

mar...tingkap i pun berhabuk. semalam hubby i ckp dia rasa nak sental all the window frames sbb penuh ngan handprints and fingerprints mamat2 yg suka jerit keluar tingkap...hahaha

zie...mmg lah, when i was studying pun i so totally malas nak hoover the floor. selalu tunggu cleaner, dah lah cleaner datang once a week. the rest of the week to kena lah live in dust. i pun dont live near main road (tinggal dlm campus lagi) entah mana the dust come from.
hero2 semua ada duty sendiri. yg main hero kena tido, if dia tak tido work wont go. another hero entertain diri dia kat luar & final hero yg terlampau baik layan diri dlm exersaucer. we all pun had to run like mad so that we can finish sebelum they get bored.
