Have you already done your spring cleaning? If you have, you’ll be all ready to get your house ready for summer. Not only is spring a fantastic time to deep clean your house, but it’s also the perfect season for home maintenance. There is probably a lot to do in your home before summer arrives. Not sure what you should be doing? Don’t worry; this guide will help you! Here are five tips for getting your home ready for summer.





Replace Any Old Windows
Replacing windows is one of those jobs that we tend to sit on for a long time and never get round to. Now that the weather is getting better, it’s perfect for hiring someone in to help you get rid of old windows and install new ones. You don’t need to replace every single window in your home all at once. It is often better to do them in stages. You could do one side of the house every spring until they are all done. If you are planning on getting new windows, flick through a brochure before you pick a style. There are different ones to pick from, including casement windows and sash windows.


Bring Summer Inside
Possibly the easiest way to get your home ready for summer – bring pot plants and flowers into your home! Take a trip to your local gardening centre and buy a lot of seeds and bulbs that are suitable to be grown indoors. Once you bring all these houseplants into your rooms, your home will be filled with bright colours and a fresh fragrance!


Clean and Replace Filters
Your heating system will have vents and filters in it. These will need cleaning regularly. Once they have been used for a few years, you will need to replace them. If you don’t feel quite so confident doing this yourself, hire out a professional handyman. There are also filters in your washing machine and tumble dryer that will need cleaning. These are very easy to do, any you will be able to sort them out yourself.


Clean Down Your Barbecue
Summer is on its way, and that means barbecue season is almost upon us! Don’t be caught out by forgetting to clean your barbecue! Even if you cleaned it at the end of last summer, it is always best to give it another quick wipe down. Especially if it has been in storage, as it could have gathered a lot of dust.


Clean Out Your Gutters
Spring is the time when you need to get your ladder out and see to your gutters. A lot of debris and dead leaves can build up over winter. This can lead to them getting blocked. Simply climb the ladder with a bucket and take out all the rubbish that you find in them.


To truly enjoy your home through the summer, you need to get it in shape now! Then you can sit back and relax during the hot and sunny summer days!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
