Busy, busy month in the Corbitoness household. So many celebrations happened this month: moving-up day for the little one *sniff sniff*, wedding day of a college friend and birthdays in the family.
First, let’s talk about how we had a blast in our friend’s wedding day. It was the coolest wedding celebration ever. They have a summer love festival theme going on and thanks to their wedding planner, it was a stress-free affair. We were told that we can even wear summer clothes and plimsolls, on a church wedding. How amazing is that? The reception is wonderful, great music, delicious food and a photo booth!
Next was Una’s moving up day. She finished her Nursery school with a Best in English medal. Yay! We are raising a bilingual child and it was not an easy task to be honest. We mostly spoke Filipino at home but we decided to introduce her first to English so she won’t have any difficulty understanding the workbooks in school. We live in a very westernised country, all of the official forms and most of the school workbooks are in English but the people usually speak in Filipino. So it’s easy for her to learn to speak the native language. We still have to translate some words for her and she is yet to read in Filipino but that will be tackled in her Kindergarten.
Lastly, hubby and I celebrated our birthdays this month. Yeah, I am 3 decades old and a year older. Noooo! When I put it that way, it feels like I had so much years way past me and I still have most of my life list unchecked. Boo! Am I running our of time? I don’t know. I’m the kind of person who likes to think with a glass half full, instead of empty. Positivity and old age, yeah, let’s talk about that.
I started my day feeling down because I thought DK won’t be home for my birthday. But for the first time in forever (yes, I really did sing that song from Frozen), he finally managed to surprise me. He brought me breakfast in bed and cake plus a cool new gadget. He apologized because it’s not listed in the wishlist that I sent him (most of which are books, by the way) but he gave me an iPad mini. An iPad Mini! Who wouldn’t want that? Now, I have most of my apps transferred to the new gadget and my iPhone is now used just for communication purposes.
Things have calmed down now and hopefully, I’ll be able to upload all of my handwritten blog notes that I made throughout the past months. But I’ll save that for my next blog posts because we’re still having super slow internet connection due to “multiple cable cuts in its undersea international cable facilities”, according to the advisory sent to the public by our internet provider. Weirdly enough, my phone is subscribed to a different provider but my LTE connection also sucks.
So how is life treating you? I hope you’re all having a blast despite the dry, summer heat.
