Hello, I’m Ira and I lives in Neuchatel, Switzerland with hubby and our little one. Because its holiday time, this time I will show you my Saturday routine instead of other day, because from Monday and Friday its just busy how to entertain the little one :)

Usually on Saturday, I woke up around 8.00AM, of course Nuriana already woke up but still play in her bed with her plushie.

08.15 – 09.00

Hubby already woke up earlier and help himself with the breakfast, so Nuri and me help ourselves with this breakfast. Yup, I got the coffee and tomatoes, Nuriana had her turkey and cheese sandwich. Meanwhile the dishes from last night are waiting too….

09.00 – 10.00

When Nuriana play and watch TV with her dad, I’m rushing to check Etsy, oh well what else :) and pack the orders. It’s Saturday, the PO closed at midday and I have to go to the main PO in town for it.

11.00 – 12.00

Nuriana and her dad try to adjust her car seat in the garage before we leaving to town to do some posting first and here we go on the way to Neuchatel Old Town from our apartment.

12.15 – 13.30

It’s Saturday, just so many thing that we need to do, usually try to do as fast as possible before everything shut down by 5PM! So here we go hubby and Nuri were walking in town, he need to fix his glasses, I want to get my big envelopes in papetier and draw some money in the bank also.

13.30 -16.00

There is one thing that we always do in the weekend, that’s a lunch out and we love to try difference restaurant, this time we went to a very old restaurant, look at the place for your umbrella beside the chairs, the meals was oke :). Then we went for our food shopping, not too many this time because we will going for our holiday next week.

after 17.00
usually everyone just gone to bed right away, no big dinner tonight except some quick salad and bread for hubby, five minutes noodle for Nuri and me. When those two settle again in front of the telly, I tried to do little bit work, checking Etsy and Twitter again then off to bed by midnight, which is earlier than my normal sleeping time :)

Bon weekend for everyone :)
