We received a note from the agent that the new maid has arrived and is finally here in Malaysia. All set to welcome her except, we have no furnitures inside her room yet. Why? Because we chucked the wardrobe and table away after my maid left. We thought we could do with new furnitures in that room. I personally feel that it is still OK but since my husband said to change, ok fine, change!
We also threw away most of the stuff she left behind like soap, lotion and what not. Which means, I need to buy new ones.
I dont really have time to shop so what did I do instead? ONLINE SHOPPING. Haha..
I tesco-onlined it! Listed down all the stuff I need to get for the maid like shower gel, shampoo, deodorant and feminine wash etc and got it from Tesco. It has been a while since I use their service to be honest. Next thing I need to get will be some pyjamas, stay at home clothes like T-shirts and pants and bath towels. I wish they sell these online but I dont know any sites.
I guess we are all set to welcome the new maid. And it will be Ramadhan too. This time will be our first muslim maid. It will be interesting.
We've been maidless for almost 2 weeks now. I think it is manageable now that the kids are a lot older and more independent. Apart from laundry, I think we are managing quite well. For the first time ever, I've been home alone with no maid and no husband. He is out of town for work and I've been doing everything on my own with no help. I know a lot of mothers are doing it. It is not easy I tell you. I am kind of enjoying my alone time with my kids and somehow they behave better when it's just with me around.
I think I'm ready to get some help….
The agent is going to drop the new maid off at 1pm. Wish me luck!
