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
Today I crafted a brand new layout for my little blog :D Yaaay! (If you still see the old one, please hit refresh.) I really like how everything feels bigger, more clean and less cluttered. This change will allow me to upload larger photos so you don’t have to squint every time you wanna see something ;D Moving forward, I’ll also be posting up neat little galleries. You’ll see what I mean! I think this design will stick around for a while so I hope you like it too ^.^
Lemme know if anything looks broken, and I’ll go fix it up. For now..more house keeping for the blog!
Yesterday I received this home-made gift from Sarah, a cinnamon lip scrub and tinted lip balm :O It’s so cool how she makes her own stuff, with all natural ingredients too :D I tried it out last night and it felt so good! The lip scrub smells like donuts…mmmMmm.. yum :3
Last night I saw pictures of juicy fresh oysters my parents-in-law had posted and I suddenly had an oyster craving myself. So today, Hubby took me to the Sydney Fish Markets for some fresh seafood goodness! :D We also bought some salmon to take home, for Hubby to make delicious sushi for dinner. My favourite!
Afterward, we went swimming again (second time in three days) and started to learn freestyle, woo! I’m still practising breaststroke of course ;D
I also have an exciting news to share~ my sister-in-law Sandra gave birth to a baby boy yesterday :D! I didn’t expect it to be so soon!! Congrats to both Alan and Sandra! Can’t wait to meet little Chrono 8D (His name hasn’t been decided yet so we’ll just call him baby Chrono Chan for now)
Today Kaz invited us girls over to her place to watch her full Wedding Day video! It’s almost 5 months since her big day, yet everything still feels very fresh in my mind (Guess that’s what happens when you blog it ;D You can read the full thing here.)
Last night I managed to breaststroke across a whole 25m pool in one go, yaaaaaaay :D!! This is my biggest achievement in the pool so far and it’s such a great feeling ^___^ I still have so much to improve on, but I know that I will only get better with practise. Yesterday I swam 20 laps (mostly in parts). I’m hoping I’ll be able to do entire laps consistently.
Hubby and I have been going to the pools once a week (sometimes twice) for my swimming lessons. I feel like I’m making good progress with my breaststroke :D We usually spend about an hour in the pool, followed by 20 minutes relaxing in the spa and about 10 minutes sweating away in the sauna. It’s such a great way to spend a Friday night.
It’s going to take time and practise, but I’m enjoying every moment of it :D
