my life as is

Archive for May 2010

The one thing I would really love to change about this apartment is the bathroom. Its small and there is wasted space in the really unusable closet.  Really wish woul just tear down the wall and make a way bigger bathroom but then again its not my house I`m renting and guess have been watching too much Hidden Potential.

Ever since DH hubby agreed to get a bathtub i have been on the hunt for some small bathroom inspiration and trust me our bathroom is tiny and I cant change the layout or breakdown the wall and all the bathtubs I saw yesterday (yep went window shopping) were about 170cm which is too long for our bathroom space which is about 152cm maximum. I saw a 140cm umm its tiny but could fit but will I? Then again wats 10cms more. Tomorrow I will be going to ikeja before work – public holiday tomorrow but i have to work I`m behind and have lots of things to do. I might be going in today as well meaning this week i cant get my hair done and it really needs a good wash. In ikeja will be going to about three shops to look for bathtubs. Hope will get something.

Colours Im really liking

Inspirations from a real bathrooms


I really like the idea of a shower glass panel unlike the shower curtains hope the price will be reasonable. I cant wait till the work begins hope wont hear cant fit coz it has to fit. I still need to decide on bathtiles etc


Result one of my shopping trip.

My walk-in closet/gym was like that for a week so definitely couldn’t run that whole week and was so thrilled that i only gained less than a kg. I really wished I was at home well really most times I`m lazy I wish I was back in Zim where Cynthia and Kiki would just clean up the whole mess. I have come a long way I pick up my own clothes if I don’t I have no one to do it so at least once a week i try to pick up the house mess. my one issue which I can’t stand and do often is dusting the dust in our apartment is …..umm cant even get the right word.There is dust everywhere and always. A Minute after dusting I see more dust gathering seriously I have no idea what to do with it. I close windows but with the heat DH always opens the windows and even is the windows are shut there is still dust and we don’t even have air vents. I don tire of dust ooh.

now so some neat pictures. I talked about getting pendants here for the Breakfast bar/study area. I got three and only used two. DH refused to remove the fan which is not working he said he will replace it. Ohh well but I`m loving it so far.

I’m nearly done with this part but I need to get a proper rug for the fridge area.


Busy bee

I have been a busy bee and this blog has suffered a bit but will update you soonest. I do love the new client especially the times they are flexible. I get to run in the mornings thou ever since I came back from SA only ran yesterday for 10mins and today I worked out on my Wii for about 15mins or so.

I’m trying to change how I eat as being on a diet doesn’t work so I’m changing my lifestyle and what I eat to achieve and maintain my weight goal. I need to close at least 12kgs to be ok and 5 extra ones for my BMI to be in the normal range so roughly that’s about 20kgs over weight. 4 weeks ago I was obese and worked hard and lost abt 3kgs or so. So I know its achievable so I’m on my way.

I need to get rid of drink and biscuits in the house but DH suffers too because he wont have any snacks so i make him jelly and been meaning to buy malt issh its tastes like crap so definitely wont drink it. In Zambia I was so disciplined would take only a glass 3 times a day but now i just drink anyhow. I’m thing I’m happy about is my love for water im constantly drinking a glass of water every morning and evening during the day i have to remind myself to take it in. So as im approaching the big 3-0 im working towards a new matured disciplined me.

On the masters I have postponed it to definitely next year. Have realised that I would be rushing it and DH is not keen on having a baby reason being me. Baby your daddy thinks I wont be a great mother because I`m not patient with him so he thinks I wont be patient with you. His reasoning is not justifiable but I wont push it because I’m not ready for you just yet when I am I will get you. I want us to have a fabulous relationship and will do anything to get that so daddy is just talking anyhow. And as you get to know him you will realise he says things to get at people especially me since I’m not phased by much lol.

So sorry
