I Love My Parents!

July 25, 2012 at 10:35 pm (life!)

i really do love my parents, even though i don’t say it often enough, and i don’t tell them enough. and grumble lots at them, just because they are my parents and they are the only people who would put up with my grumbling. Charlene told me to blog about them when i told her how i felt because i was bad at telling them, and my initial reaction was like what? blog? nah. however on pausing to think, i figured out and told her the reason that i’m so bad at telling them is because i’m a 24, and i’m a guy, and i’ve gotten pretty used to NOT telling them for a long long time, at least not on a regular basis. everyone who knows them, like Nick and Jin tells me i’ve got the best parents in the world, and it’s a fact that i’ve always known since i was a teenager (14/15?), and beginning to form rational matured thoughts.  i hope that i can Skype them more regularly this year though! maybe even every day, i would like you to please call me on my landline, just to chat, mom and dad, if you are reading this? hahah.

anyway i just sent my parents off to the airport, and i didn’t realize how much i would miss their company and fellowship during their short stay here – the time that they were here just seemed to go by so fast, even though they were here for almost 2 weeks!

during the time they were here, they helped me to settle so many things, without which i would not have been able to to get up and running, with the house in the current furnished state that it is. between my 9-5 Path lectures in school and furnishing the house, we were so busy that i didn’t even have time to take them out to do the touristy London stuff like a stroll in the park, a visit to the museum and markets, bringing my mom shopping etc. i almost felt bad that they didn’t get to do any of the holiday stuff, but my mom was really nice in telling me “we wanted to come here to help you settle in anyway, and that’s what our holiday cruise in between to Norway was for. besides, we had seen most of what we wanted to previously as we used to live in the UK”.

from waiting for deliveries and service men (not a joke, when you don’t know when they will come, and they repeatedly either come really late, or cancel without notice, leaving my poor parents stuck at home and unable to go out),
to examining every single fault and liaising tirelessly with the onsite developer to get it fixed,
to settling a pile-load of administration stuff like bills and council tax,
to repeatedly rearranging neatly, packing, cleaning and vacuuming the whole house till it was spotless,
to planning and bringing all the basic household appliances that i would be needing for my flat from Singapore,
to shopping with me at Ikea the whole day until 10 pm on our second day back in London till they were both exhausted and hungry,
to being dragged here and there to get things i wanted for the house,
to accompanying me everywhere to run errands because i enjoyed their company and wanted their advise,
to my mom practically going to Morrisons everyday to pick up groceries and other things that we missed,
to my dad making two long trips with me to the car dealership in Watford to sort out the car (when we made 2 silly mistakes getting there that made us waste 1 hour in the process),
and humoring my nitty gritty picky nature about the exact spot i wanted for the wall art, and using his trusty ikea paper rule to measure everything because i was extremely particular and a perfectionist when it came to measurements…

….the list is endless.

haha they did enjoy their Nando’s while they were here though.. my mom really liked it; so much so that we had dinner there all 3 times when we went to Westfield’s shopping centre.

anyway mom and dad, hope that you are safely home and happy to be in your own house which i know you always miss so much, and i hope for another visit from you both in the near future!

love, son.

my dad tested my mouse, which i told him wasn’t working very well… and even left a note for that..hahah
found notes like this for me everywhere, to remind me of what needed to be done..

came home today to find my house as neat and clean as a hotel room…my mom vacuumed, mopped clean and tidied everything for like the 30th time since coming here….hahaha i’m going to maintain it like that for the rest of the year!! (who am i kidding)

this is how messy the house was at first…
bedroom! am going for a completely white clean feel because it’s kind of small, to create a more airy and spacious illusion.
kitchen! during the week they were gone this place was a mess..

my mom cleaned the toilet every single day…lol
