Happy New Years Eve! The last day of 2016 is here… and what better time to reflect back on the last 366 days? 2016 has been one of the biggest years for Hubby and I. We achieved a life long dream of buying our own house :) It’s something we both worked hard towards our entire life and sometimes it still feels like a dream. All those sleepless nights, the sacrifices, the weekends devoted to house inspections and auctions has finally paid off…We did it!!! :D :D :D
This year, I also changed career paths. I did a bit of soul searching and really thought about where I wanted to go and what would make me happy. It’s been a difficult journey, but Hubby has been my greatest support through all the ups and downs. I’m so thankful to have him by my side :) I’m enjoying my new role and look forward to learning lots more in the coming year.
It’s finally the holidays!! Last night Hubby and I took a stroll around our neighbourhood to admire the Christmas lights people have set up. Although this house isn’t as epic as the one in Hurstville, I think it’s pretty impressive :O
It’s been two weeks since I started at my new job, and I’m settling in well :3 This is a pic of my new office taken one night when everyone had gone home :’D I’ll be getting a fancy brand new MacBook Pro soon. YAY!
This is Iggy the doggy :D A workmate brought him in for a day. I think every company needs a dog. They are so adorable and happy :D
I saw her on the news today. My childhood friend who vanished one morning on her way to school back in 1998. It’s been 18 years. She would have been 30 this year~ maybe even married with kids.
Her birthday was 12th May.
It was easy to remember because it was similar to mine.
We were in the same class in 3-4C. She was one year above me.
I didn’t have many friends, and she was the first person to call me her best friend.
When she moved schools, we wrote letters to each other.
The last letter I ever received from her was in 1998.
I don’t remember much anymore, but I will never forgot her.
Today was my last day at work. It’s been three years, huh? It feels much longer than that. New career path, new environment, new people and new experiences~ Change is always a little bit scary, but I’m gonna give it my best shot :)
Oh, and here’s my farewell card I got today. heh 8D
Ever since we had Champy, Kaz was super keen on getting a cat of her own. Kaz and Jia recently adopted two sibling kitties, a grey tabby and a black cat which they named Max & Tifa. Hubby and I got to meet them for the first time yesterday, and they were so cute X3 They are currently 10 weeks old.
Max is a shy little scaredy cat, while Tifa is like the sassy older sister. Except she looks dopey. All. The. Time. XD Just look at those funny face :’D
Over a week ago, I’ve officially taken Hubby’s surname. Most women change it once they get married, and well.. I just took a little bit longer :) I wasn’t quite ready to part with my maiden name, but now I am. It’s something I chose for myself :3
It doesn’t change anything on the Internet of course. Everyone knows my name is Chibi, and surname is Jen ;D
The rain has finally cleared. We had some pretty intense weather over the weekend; heck even houses collapsed in Sydney’s Northern Beaches :O Meanwhile I spent most of the time indoors where possible, snuggling on the couch with my little cat on my lap :3 Champy’s been a good boy lately, scratching the carpet less and acting all cute ;D
