    7 Tips for Surviving Your First Christmas with a Newborn

    Babies are wonderful especially when they come during Christmas. With one in your arms now, you’ve not only gotten an early Christmas present, but also the best. And while it will be amazing to cuddle the little pumpkin on his first ever Noelly celebration, it is also that type of day where things can get nuts especially for a new momma and her needy new baby.  Without any assistance or a twist in the normal agenda of baking, cooking, decorating the home and endlessly receiving visitors who have come to celebrate Christmas with the newest member of the family, the stress can come down really hard on you. But that…

  • The Summer Peppa Came to Stay

    It all started on a perfectly normal summers day. There I was working away at my laptop, as I did every day, when suddenly the girls and Romanian Mum began shouting for me to come quickly. Thinking something was wrong I immediately sprang up and headed for the front door. “Look!’ They all said pointing across the garden. As I looked out, I couldn’t believe what I saw. A small green Tortoise was trundling up our garden path. Before I carry on there is something you should know. We live in the centre of a small town, literally in the centre, just a short distance away from the main shopping area. So…

  • Decisions…

    Why nobody told me how hard it is to be an adult? The hardest part of this whole adult thing is taking decisions. As a Libra I always found it very difficult to choose the right things for myself. Making decisions and choosing for my kids though has been THE hardest thing ever. I always wonder…is it the right thing to do? The decisions I’m making as their parent now will affect them for the rest of their adult life…forever… It’s a real burden and I always analyze the situation hundreds of time before going for it. My kids opinion counts the most though. My girls always have their deciding…

  • Sisters

    A bit late…Sisters in February

    February. It was a short but really full month. We had snow and I had to shovel more snow than ever,  we had lots of things to prepare and decide and all the way through I just had only one thought… SLOW DOWN My little baby girl,Miss A is starting school in September and although I know that it’s time and that if we were living in UK she would’ve been already in school as reception starts at 4 and a half, I am still really sad deep inside. They are getting older and starting to face more and more challenges and I am simply getting old. And the decisions…

  • How to reconnect with yourself

    How to Reconnect with Yourself

    No matter how much you love your life and the people in it, there are times when everybody needs a short reset. Life can often become crowded and overwhelming, whether you’re dealing with the day-to-day responsibilities that come from caring for your loved ones or taking on more than your fair share of extra duties or stresses in your professional life. If you’re starting to feel just a little bit worn out before the day has even begun, then it’s time to take a step back and reconnect with you. “ME TIME” For many people, there is a sense of guilt attached to taking some time out from those daily…

  • I’m HERE

    I am HERE. And it feels like I’ll always be HERE. For you. For them. For the others. Sometimes it feels that I’m not HERE for me. Although I know I’m happy, the way I change every day scares me. I’m growing. Older with each day. And I’m not special. I thought I was that special person for you. But the days, months and years are passing as fast as the leaves are thrown in the air by the wind. And with each passing day. I’m losing my trust in your words. I’m HERE. And I’ll always be for them. But I wonder how long I’ll be HERE for you……

  • What is that makes us happy?

    I often wonder this…and I am sure that you wonder that too… Over the last 10 years I learned that being in a certain place does not makes us happier necessarily. However, being surrounded by the your family and the people you love does have that effect. Being happy is being able to know what you love and fill your life with what you love. Being happy doesn’t depend on the material things. Of course, being wealthy can certainly help but how many rich people we know that are still unhappy despite having millions. Being happy for me is being happy with who I am despite the way people around…
