my life as is

There are a number of things I have wanted to change or throw away ever since I moved into this house and some ever since I set my foot inside DH apartment. Today I did just that for only two items and 1000000 more to follow. Since I told you about my new role decided to change that to Homemaker. Somes way better than housewife lol.

So here 1 before – master bath bin

I never thought I would fall in love with a bin. Especially this one. LOL. Its funny that we went for years (we as in my sisters and I) without a bin in out bathroom or bedroom. I remember throwing used pads just before I put them in the outside bin behind the door in our bathroom and I can remember clearly Alvin shouting for me to throw away my shit which I would have forgotten by the bathroom window.

Second up are the buckets. These are the worst didn’t know buckets could get that dirty. I tried cleaning them even socking them for days on end but nothing so I sort of gave up and been postponing replacing them since and guess today was D-day.

See how dirty the budget was. I always thought who mama would not be caught dead using that budget and how my room mate in Zambia always used to scrub hers like daily and she sort of inspired me to watch mine daily. But thinking back in high school I don’t remember cleaning my bucket, but I remember always used to wipe it down and store it under my bed. Yes I also got punished for leaving my bucket in the bathroom several times. Guess somethings don`t change.


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.
