In less than 60 days which I am sure will just whiz pass, 2014 will end. Tis’ a bittersweet year for us as we had the best of the best and the worse of the worst.
1. Girls got to experience Homeschooling and got a year off school to muck about and truly, they have learnt so much more than they ever would have at school.
2. We had the best holiday ever in Europe, spoilt with fabulous weather and glorious food, wonderful company and too much love. It was perfect.
1. Both my Mother-in-Law and Mother passed away within 7 weeks of each other which left us busy from one funeral to another. What more, handling death certificates with banks and lawyers is just not fun. I’m still at it!!!!!!!
2. I was diagnosed with heart disease. It has been the most terrifying shock to my system but I’ve accepted it now.
We are gearing up to return to school and I say that with great trepidation as I just do not look forward to school runs. Not at all. I know not what I will be doing with my life as such. There were plans to start new projects but someone behind me keeps pulling the ropes as though I was their horse! I could just be a Mom, the Stay At Home Mom, which I was for a whole 5 years before T2 came along. But what would I do when they are at school? Oh well, we’ll figure it out eventually. I’m sure there’s tons to do. I just have to stay focused and keep my eye on the hole. We have had an amazing life thus far. Things can only get better as our Moms now look down upon us, enveloping us with their abundance of love.
The girls miss Zermatt already…….we stayed at the best resort at Zermatt owned by a lovely Swiss couple called Coeur des Alpes. It was perfect in every way. There is just nothing that we had to complain about. We booked the Fireplace Suite and spent an entire 7 nights there. It was perfect. Oh, did I say that already?
The resort had two swimming pools, yes TWO!!! One indoors and one outdoors and the girls swam in both!!! Several times over. The entire resort was just beautiful with views of the Matterhorn and we have decided to return soon for it’s magic.
The suite came with its own coffee machine and big TV with fireplace and a living room with 2 single beds for the kids, a lovely bath tub and a separate water closet. We slept with views of the Matterhorn. It just couldn’t get any better.
Breakfast was fabulously Swiss and perfect as well!!! They served cereals and muesli, eggs, fruit and pastries, nuts and cheese with meat and I cannot remember what else. The fresh orange juice was perfect using an Alessi juicer. Bread was to die for. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. And we could also sit outdoors to have breakfast with the Matterhorn.
Just can’t wait till we go back again. It is like our home away from home now……..Zermatt.**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
