Constructing A New Non-Slip Concrete Pavement

Since the fixing of our dining room roof, we had one more project to be carried out. We had a pavement in front of our gate that was lined with 2 rows of floor tiles and the rest was cemented. After years of wear and tear, the tiles tend to be slippery whether it rained or not.

Hubby and elder son have slipped and fell because of the slippery pavement and others had near accident but thank God, didn't. Most of our friends are elderlies, so one can imagine the seriousness if one would to fall and hurt himself or herself.

Hubby arranged the date for the construction to be carried to coincide with the days that I will be in hospital for the chemo treatment because it was going to be very dusty and noisy. I was spared the noise and dust and the final concreting work was done while I was home from hospital. Below are some of the photos taken of the construction work by hubby.

Elder son was home the week before I went for my 3rd chemo treatment. He brought back a fish from his fishing trip and specially have it steamed for our dinner one evening. It was very well done and we enjoyed the steamed fish.
Another friend shared 2 photos of some kind of moth and 2 photos of her rescued bird with me. Photos credited to Aislynn.
Strange looking moth she found in her house.
She shared that it looks like some rattan weaving stuff.
The bird that she rescued and nursed back to health. It has gotten very comfortable with it human family that it choses to stay.
It follows its rescuer mama everywhere she goes and will perch on her shoulder or head whenever it gets a chance to do so.

For the 1st night stay, I had a roommate who later went for her operation. I slept alone for the 2nd and 3rd night before I was discharged from hospital.

If you want favor with both God and man,
and a reputation for good judgment and common sense,
then trust the Lord completely; don't ever trust yourself.
In everything you do, put God first,
and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
(Proverbs 3:5-6)

Shopping For Bridesmaid Dresses Of Your Choice

In today’s world, even though there are many dresses websites out there in the market, it is not easy to choose the right bridesmaid dresses as there are so many dresses to choose from. Some weddings have one bridesmaid, two or a few bridesmaids accompanying the bride. When choosing the bridesmaid dresses, you will have to consider the individual’s height or size. You will also have to consider the theme of the wedding, the season in which the event will be held and the colour palette and pattern of the dresses. 

Give yourself plenty of time to discuss the dresses with your bridesmaids, making sure that everyone is happy with the design, colour, length, and price of the dress. Be considerate because price does matter especially if the bridesmaids are paying for their own dress. There is a wide selection of affordable bridesmaid dresses that are beautiful and fashionable and sometimes, you can even find some great discounts on certain websites offering great buy.

Remember that time is needed to order or for the tailor to sew the dresses and for the dresses to be delivered. Not only that, if the dresses do not fit nicely, time is needed for the dresses to be sent back for alteration. Don’t wait until the last minute because rush job will affect the quality of workmanship. 

When it comes to choosing the colour of the dresses, remember that bridesmaids, groomsmen and bridal couple should complement one another. The colours for the bridesmaid or groomsmen should not be more prominent than that of the bridal couple. The idea is to complement the bridal couple with colours such as champagne bridesmaid dresses, and not to overpower them.

These days, it is very convenient to order bridesmaid dresses from online stores such as Yelure.co.uk and many others. When choosing bridesmaid dresses, be considerate of the dress style and body types of your bridesmaids. Be mindful to choose the material of the dresses that are suitable for the weather condition.
