    My sun…silver lining…

    So it’s been a while since I wrote here…I don’t even know what I want to say but I felt the need to write. To take back some of the old me. The me that would always find peace when she was writing. These days I am just a bit too busy for my liking and I must admit that I miss the days when I had the liberty to write what I wanted. I miss the days when this blog was just my diary – although looking back at some of my earlier posts makes me smile in an ashamed kind of way. If you are a blogger too…

    You can be as happy as you want to be

    There are almost four years since we moved back home and little by little we are making our life here more comfortable. For now some might say that our house its still quite small for our needs but we are quite happy here. Quite a change in my attitude huh? Well, I realised that you can only be as happy as you want you want to be. Of course I still have my down periods, who doesn’t? Being a single married parent can be quite hard as I don’t have that continuous support from my husband. Trying to fit everything in one day – working from home, school runs, cleaning…

    Hard year

    The month of October is here and I can’t quite believe how close to the end of this year we are. 2017 is less than 3 months away. It’s been a hard year. The worse part was when my youngest had her left tibia fractured. The worst 24 hours ever… I had to rely on doctors and specialist around my daughter and I. And believe me Romanian hospitals are at the opposite poll from the British ones. Nurses and doctors are still acting like they are doing us a favour by acting nasty at times and by letting us wait for hours on end. Thank goodness Anastasia’s cast is now…

    The latest about this single married mother

    Summer is here for sure now. Most days we have around 30 degrees and at lunch time when the sun is at its hottest we hide behind the curtains with the air conditioning on. This is when I wish their dad was still here. He is way more entertaining than I am and more full of life. I am so boring these days…I don’t even do that much crafting with the girls anymore. I was getting there a couple of months ago just after my gallbladder operation. I think I was slightly happier than usual and was even starting to look after myself – regular trips to the salon for…

    Things that had to be told

    I am finding it quite hard to get back to writing on this blog. I don’t know why…It might be because I don’t know in which direction to take this blog or I am just afraid to expose myself and my feelings like I used to. All feels very strange though. My girls are bigger now and the issues I had with parenting when I started this blog no longer exist. I am not a parenting guru don’t get me wrong but I think I am simply more relaxed when it comes to parenting my girls and I just prefer to live and enjoy my life with them rather than…

    Being at home is great!

    And so the holiday is now finished! Back to my home town and life of a “single” mother. From the moment we arrived at the airport everything seemed to get back to it’s place. My girls and my parents were so happy to see each other again and of course my eldest was the one that was the most talkative all the way from the airport to my hometown. Unfortunately I don’t take any pictures of them together to see their enthusiasm of getting together again. It was night and we were all very tired…My mum even share a tear when she saw all of us arrive through the airport…

    Life challenges

    We are back in England after a bit over two years now. Not to stay. Just to visit. Unfortunately our money situation still doesn’t allow us to live here as a family. Plus the fact that we have no family support is another thing that keeps our family apart. I guess is one of those things that we have to go through. Other families have their own challenges so really…I should not complain. I know that s very important for the family to be together but sometimes the things are not as easy as that. We’ve been here three days already and my girls already suffer in a way. I…
