Take a break – its time for YOU! There can be no more stressful time than have a toddler – a ‘terrible’ two year old (he’s actually a good kid, but those of you with experience will know what I mean). Add into that a house move (from another continent), house renovations, and living in a new, cold country – with few friends or relatives. The word ‘stress’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Nevertheless, we owe it to our family and ourselves to be positive. Especially for the kids as they will be the first to pick up on negative emotions. You know, despite all the bad experiences listed above, we still have so much to be grateful for. Coming from a poor country maybe I can see these benefits much better than others who were born in better circumstances. We actually have so much to be grateful for. We have a comfortable place to live, we have enough food, and we live in a safe country. When we are down, and life seems too diffcult, we should all remember these things. And reach out to your friends too – share your troubles. Other WILL support you and help you. Write to me here, share your feelings and experience. Remember that a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet.

I want to share..Being a new mum is an exhausting experience. You have no time of your own, you can't work, so money is tight, you are constantly tired and feel unwell. Your husband will support you as much as you need. But still lot of things to worry about. It is easy to feel down, negative and very unhappy. But, now is the time you have to find your inner strength, your secret super power to drive yourself forward.
Things will get better, and you have to stay positive. Being strong and positive is not about all the bad things that happen to you, it's about how you react to them, how you cope with them. Try to not let your dificulties ruin your life. Be positive, concentrate on your beautiful child and loving family. Things will get better, and you can make them better sooner if you have a positive attitude.
I loved to see and touch snow but I prefer warm weather though, lots of us do I think! In my province in Philippines it is so hot, Just two types of weather Rain and hot and sometimes 38 degrees Celsius I can almost fry a egg in my forehead.
My mother arrived during winter last December. She was amazed how cold it is. She doesn’t want to live in the United kingdom haha, This is how to frighten my mother. But she loved the people here even though she has limited English. At least people are very friendly here, Cameron is two years old. I love it. He wants to stay all day outside if he can, I didn’t expect the will snow that day so I used the old plastic box and put hole in the side so I can grab him and he loved it, he doesn’t mind at all. Having a 2 year old toddler ‘ the terrible twos' they say is so much fun, you know what I mean.
Amazing. I have lived in a cold Country (United Kingdom) in more than 8 months now, so far so good. With my Amazing husband Arthur – he enjoyed his writing and working for his Master of Creative Writing degree right now and getting ready to launch in his third book called a “ FINAL vengeance” He already published his first novel about Philippines conspiracy “ Deadly Election Here is the link : https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01BODZHUO/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i1 hope you are interested, I support him whatever what he want to do, so he can enjoy life while he can. I love him for his kindness. He is a humble man and good father I believe that he is a brilliant author too!

I'm sad today to hear the news about Kobe Bryant and his daughter Giana, they both passed away in a Helicopter crash. I'm a big fan of him, I've known him since I'm young, I am so sorry for the wife and family and the pain they must be in. We should also not forget that seven other people died in the crash - my heart goes out to their families as well. I don't have experience yet of a close family death, and I don't want to, But sometimes the world is can be a hurtful and sad place. They say you have to expect the unexpected - I mean we never know what will happen next. One moment were laughing and maybe later we're gone.
It's not fair? Is it?... There is so much happening this month of January 2020, did you notice? Taal volcano in the Philippines has erupted, so sad really lots of people started to build their homes there, and i'ts gone in seconds right.
In Australia a big fire - a staggering 1 billions animals are now estimated dead in the Australian fire, the number of Kangaroos, Koalas and others killed keeps skyrocketting, is this the sign of global warming?
In Hong Kong the protests against the Government continues. The protesters have laid out five key demands, namely the withdrawal of the bill, investigation alleged police brutality and misconduct, the release of arrested protesters, the resignation of Carrie Lam, and free elections. Everyday it gets worse. many people are affected. like Filipinos and Indonesian helpers and other foreign workers with more than a million working in Hong kong - They just work for the future of their family. It is very worrying. My sister works in Kuwait and the government of the Philippines has warned them to go back in the Philippines. What is she gonna do? She is working abroad to give a good future to her children- Even with the difficulty of being far in her family, - Even me I miss my little one sometimes if he is in nursery for 6 hours. I admire her for being brave and having the confidence to put her family first. Everyday I'm always frightened. What if something happens to my family, what if .. what if...
Hot news CORONA VIRUS - 2000 people got infected recently in China, Philippines, Japan, America and now in France? Oh god is this real? I just think to myself while I'm cuddling my little one within a month all this has happened, The world can be cruel, but it is still exciting everyday., and there is much good being done and improvements happening - try to look for the good news amongst all the doom and gloom. How to prevent getting infection from Corona virus: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.and avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. This is all I can think of right now. Pray for anyone who is bereaved or hurting and help them if you can. - Be thankful what you have now, spend time with your family, be humble and respect others opinion. Thank you for reading.
