It is good etiquette to say thank you. ‘Thank you’ are two simple words that can mean so much. It is used every day, just to be polite. We thank people constantly for opening a door, making a coffee, handing something to us, moving aside; the list of occasions where ‘thank you’ is used is quite endless. If you want to express a sincere thank you or endless gratitude, there are creative ways in which this can be done.
Email a video
If you are not into writing thank you cards, you could send an email with a video attachment of a ‘thank you’ song. There are many songs that would be suitable for the occasion. Read more… »

I and the husband have a lot in common but we are opposite on a lot of things too. He is melancholic. I am choleric. So when it comes to small details or small things, it’s the hubby who’s in charge of that. Though we didn’t talk that he’ll take charge of it, it is somehow automatic that I let him do those things. When we’re going out, he’s the last one to step out of the house and lock the doors. He holds the key so he’s also the first one to enter the house. Last Wednesday night (should I say before dawn) was different. I insisted on opening the door so he let me do it. As soon as I unlocked the door, I entered the house and immediately do whatever I need to do so I could finally lay my back on the bed. I was pretty exhausted after sitting for so many hours that night so I am too excited to hit the bed. Ace, on the other hand, followed me and locked the door from the inside so we could finally rest.
We woke up almost mid-day and when he opened the door, he was surprised to see the keys hanging there! He immediately called me and asked me what are those keys doing in the door. I jokingly said “nakalimutan nila alisin sarili nila jan”.hahaha.
Glad we have screen door so the keys are not visible from the street. Besides, I doubt if somebody would dare enter our premises because we have five brave dogs ready to bite and tear every flesh of anybody who gets inside the yard. Lesson learned, I won’t insist on opening the door next time or if I don’t have a choice but to do it, remind myself to immediately remove the keys from the keyhole once I get inside the house.
To make that Dory moment worst, I forgot my camera that night at Mam Bebs. Ohhh….I am such forgetful these days. But when I tell Ace I read somewhere that forgetfulness is normal during pregnancy, he won’t believe me because even before I got pregnant, I am always-forgetful Dory (I am referring here to Dory from the movie Finding Nemo).

Preparing for your new conservatory blinds
When the time comes to buy your first set of conservatory blinds, there are a couple of things you need to consider to make sure you get exactly what you need. This quick guide should help you figure out what you need before you begin shopping around and actually make a purchase.
How big do the conservatory blinds need to be?
This question is one of the most important factors in making a conservatory blind purchasing decision. Choose a set of blinds that are too long, and you might end up with fabric trailing on the floor. Choose a set too short and you will have a ridiculous-looking gap at the bottom of each when they are “closed”.
You should measure the length and width of each section of your conservatory from top to bottom so you know the required length. Make a note and then do the same for the width. You will need to measure each section as there may be some variations between them.
If you are looking to get ceiling blinds for your conservatory, you will also need to measure each of the roof sections. Each measurement also needs to allow for the space the actual fittings will take up at the top of the window – this means measuring to the middle of each frame at the top and sides of the section.
