The Weekend Blog Follower Caravan is on its 9th edition, but this will be the first time I am joining with this blog.
- I am Vix, Mummy Vix or Vixie to most of my friends + co-workers, Jared’s Mum in GFC + Ma to my 1-year-and-a-half old baby boy, Ethan Jared,
- almost 32 years old (but is always 18 in spirit *wink*) stay-at-home (but aspires to change that into work-at-home very soon!)
- started blogging August of last year + totally loved it + regretted that I never discovered it soon enough!
- I was giving out telephone numbers a-la PLDT to UK clients for almost 5 years until I cannot stand the several hours of separation with my son anymore + quit May of last year.
- I took up a course in Computer in College, but let’s not talk about that, shall we?
A day in the life of…
My day usually begin with waking up way too early so I can do some work online whilst the baby sleeps (yep, I must admit I am spending way too much time online, I am guilty as charged + I have PMB now turned PMC on FB to blame – most times I would just sat in front of the computer reading + digging up the threads (man they can really get very long!) + I’d be lost, the original plan to post unfinished blog entries gone out the window!) when my son wakes up, my centripetal force would shift towards him + most of the day would revolve around my mothering + childminding tasks – bathing, feeding, playing, washing the feeding bottles, doing his laundry (which i do once or twice a week) – menial you might say but I’ve come to enjoy every minute of it.
Hard work, right, but still, when my son hugs me, or tap me on the cheek (even when it’s not so gentle!) every tired bone fizzle with more energy to perform even more tasks. And when Jared reaches out his tiny hand to hug me while he sleeps at night, it’s priceless + it reminds me that my decision to stay at home with my son is the best one I did in a while.
This blog (which is fairly new + started officially last day of feb via this post) + jared’s little corner are my feeble attempts to somehow chronicle our day-to-day adventures. Hope you will join us!
Apart from blogging, I enjoy watching movies, reading suspense-thriller paperbacks, moon + star gazing, and playing Cafeworld in Facebook.
Kindly drop a line if you follow my blogs + I’d be more than delighted to return the favor.

It’s Thursday once again, time for one of my favorite memes (and fave topics too^^) again. And for something that made me fall in love, i chose this song from one of my favorite artists, Shawn Colvin, Never Saw Blue Like That.
This song best describes the warm, fuzzy feeling one experiences when one falls in love. It also best illustrates how your surrounding becomes a reflection of how you feel: the sky seems bluer than you last remembered, the breeze blowing its gentle singsong into your ear, and how practically everything around you seem to glow with light + love.
This song was also part of the Dawson’s Creek (remember that famed teen soap in the 90’s?) of which volume escapes my mind now + it does remind me of the first time i fall in love whenever i hear it…
I can’t believe a month ago
I was alone, I didn’t know you
I hadn’t seen or heard you’re name
And even now, I’m so amazed
It’s like a dream, It’s like a rainbow, it’s like the rain..
Cause I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You’ve given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that before
Jeez, I guess it does feel good to fall in love for the first time + here was I thinking we’ve fully recovered from the love bug the love month brings…

Happy Thursday everyone!
