Her little House

This must rank as the most unglamourous shot of me ever on this blog. Please forgive me as I myself try to look beyond those awful legs! I must assure you that those pin-striped pants do look a whole lot better in real life *blink*.

I have to thank for my sister for this photo and just had to post it.

This is Bubbles' very own House, set up by her grandfather whenever she visits. This one is unlike the more make-shift nature of the house she gets at home. It is fitted with plush cushions, and my childhood teddy bear duvet. Often, when I arrive at my parents' place after work, this House is the first place the Bubs leads me to, hand-in-hand. It is in this house she insists I sit in as she serves me concoctions from her little kitchen.

That is me, after a few sleepless nights (thanks first to mine and then to Bubbles' persistent allergy coughs) and a long day at work. I was trying to catch forty-winks as she finished up her milk. She didn't like me being asleep very much and kept saying Mummy, Wake Up in between mouthfuls from her bottle. And of course some body part of hers (in this case her right leg) would be on me.

I thought this photo sums up my evenings after work very well.

Thanks sista, unglamourous shot aside ;)

Happy weekend everyone!

tehpeng has always wanted to do a tent for nat, in the study rm, for their "camping night". I have been resisting....

Haha! If it is temporary it should be ok! My dad actually dismantles it every night (he bothers to!) and Bubbles loves to watch him set it up :)

You're really brave, posting up this shot! Thanks for sharing it with us, I love the shot, since its real and tells a story, and you will probably look at this pic ten years later with much fonder memories compared to some other posed picture... :)
