Semalam tengah dok belek2 catalogues yang ada sales berlambak2 sempena Mother’s Day and I asked The Little Misses what are they going to buy for me for Mother’s Day. Miss 10 said she wanted to buy a necklace (yang costume jewellery aje ye Puan Puan, bukannya yang bling bling berkarat2 tu :-)), but then she said that Daddy told her that Mummy doesn’t wear jewelleries much so there’s no point buying it for me. In a way, that’s true sebab I ni memang bukan jenis yang pakai jewelleries beria, I cuma pakai necklace and 3 rings aje on my body. But I like to collect necklaces especially if they are cute and cheap, hehehe.
Then I told Miss 10 what I really really want for Mother’s Day. I told her it’s nothing material but I would appreciate it a lot if I can get it. Then The Other Half tanyalah what is this thing that I really really want. Do you know what I want?
1 year ‘supply’ of cleaning lady/person to come to our house weekly to do the household chores that I detest. (especially the dusting, cleaning the bathrooms and toilets, mopping, vacuuming, making the house spic n span :-))
Why one year, why not forever? Kalau I mintak 1 year, then for next year’s Mother’s Day, I can ask for the same thing again and they don’t have to worry about what to get for me for Mother’s Day present, hehehehehe…… And if I do it every year, every one will be happy, betul tak!
But when I told The Other Half that, he just said, “Ok but you have to do the googling, calling them up, getting quotes!”. Lerr, my present but I have to do all the work! I’ve found a service which charges $57/2 hours and then $20 for the next hour which looks really good. But I’m not sure if that’s a good rate or not. The Other Half said it sounded reasonable. But when you think about it, that sounds like a lot of money for 1 year! Paling murah pun that’ll be $3100 a year! Am I willing to spend that much money to get my house clean for 2 hours/week??? That’s a lot of money to be given away :-). Hmmm….. I’d rather clean the house myself and use the money to pamper myself kan, lagi worthwhile I think, hehehehe….. What do you think?
This was our dinner last nite, The Other Half mengidam nak makan laksa :-).
Ini pulak our dinner tonite, finger food sebab Mummy dah tak tau nak masak apa. I made prawn fritters, curry puffs (I buat semalam masa tgh rajin) and melted cheese and vege wrap.
