Getting Ready for A Live-In Maid

Our new Filipino maid will be joining us next week. God Bless Us All! Today, we did a round of spring cleaning.  Our house literally looked like a bomb site this afternoon.  We cleared all the junk that’s in the maid’s room and made way for a new sofa bed.  Earlier this evening, we bought a single sofa bed from Ikea from the Lycksele range.

Why sofa bed?

Because the room is not exactly generous with space. A full-time single bed in there plus a wall rack and a cupboard will only give an L-shape walkway of  about 3 feet wide (or maybe less..) So we had to go with a single sofa bed option instead so that it can be folded up during the day to make way for the ironing chores.

And while we were looking around at the sofa beds at Ikea, the Lil Missy was grumpy and moody (and oblivious to her surroundings) because the Ikea Playground weren’t accepting anymore kids  at the time we enquired.

And while this was happening, Aidan was jumping from sofa to sofa like Superman – only thing was that he was wearing his Batman outfit instead.

  1. Wow, I am so so so happy for you! Hopefully this maid will be a keeper and hardworking, child loving worker. My sis also waiting for her Filipino maid, her first pick was “chopped” by another agent, and now waiting for second one. She has had much luck with maids, the first to arrived ran away, the second pretended faint and wanted to return to Indonesia, the third as a scary lousy old cambodian, the fourth from Vietnam did not arrive, the fifth from Filipino was taken by another agent, and now her 6th! Talk about luck!

    Look forward to your updates… Take care

  2. All the best. and tell the maid she’s very lucky cos u almost bought everything NEW for her. 😉
