On being a visa-carrying hausfrau

Posted in Uncategorized by Sandra on April 9, 2010

Well I am now a de facto spouse visa carrying member of the Australia community. I’m totally legal now. [To stay, of course. I was legal (and hence unexciting :<) years ago now.]

So what do I do on my 1st (or 2nd) day of being legal in Australia?

Sleep, of course. Need to make up for all the beauty sleep lost during the previous 18 months worrying, fretting and worrying some more over my visa status.

But I couldn’t let the bf think I sleep so much – so lazy right! So, I woke up with him this morning, had sexy time [which includes but is not limited to cuddling with the dogs (who spent 90% of the night on the bed)!], got up to iron his shirt while the Man of the House had his morning cleansing routine, baked bread after he left, had bread and egg for breakfast, then got on the computer.

Did the usual rounds of facebook, email, friends’ blogs… And then spent hours on Xiaxue’s blog. I’m on Page 7 right now… which only brings me to December 2009. She has a way of writing that sings to the Singaporean part of me, which is fast fading except for the giam lui (stingy) part of me. In fact, her Singlish is so powerful that when I stepped out to get the mail I was shocked to see an angmoh across the road. LOL!

Then I did some work… which basically involves me going to dreamstime and trawling through royalty-free images for placeholder images in Keystone’s latest marketing push – which is still a secret btw because I am making it. So out of my depth doing it… I want to go back to the website bits of it and just tell the BF to get a real designer lawlawlawl. I got about 20 images, then thought to put on some socks because it’s very cold. Fall mah… winter coming soon. :<

Except when I got to the bedroom I promptly curled up in bed with the dogs and went to sleep again! This time sleep for 2 hours! See – best way of not letting your bf know you sleep like a pig and snore like a cow is to have naps when he's not home. TRUE STORY!

So didn't want to get up, but later cannot sleep how? The BF will suspect and that is not good at all. He'll call me pig and break my heart. :< So I vacuumed the house (SO HAUSFRAU RIGHT!) and came to blog this.

The house is in a mess right now because the housemate is "in the process of moving out". Well, hopefully it will be soon because he was supposed to have been completely moved out during the 4 day long Easter weekend last week.

… OH MY GOD I DIDN'T TELL YOU ABOUT OUR NEW FRIDGE!!! Okay I'll do that in the next post!

P.S. Mega, like that enough for your voracious reading needs?!
