    How to raise bilingual kids

    If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that my girls are bilingual. Obviously, I am Romanian but their daddy is English so although we don’t live in England anymore I am trying as much as I can to teach my girls about their home country as well. They were both born at St’ George’s Hospital in Wandsworth, London. Miss K lived half her life in London and half in my hometown and if you ask her what nationality she is she will always say: “First english, than Romanian”. For my youngest, Miss A things are a little bit different you see. At first she looks puzzled…

  • Seeing the truth…

    Sometimes life and its events give us the right tools to realise that something or someone in our life doesn’t show their true colours. This happened to me last week – a supposed “dear friend” disappointed me. Someways I was always expecting for it to happen…you know when one friend always criticised the people around them you always know that they might do the same when you are not around and talk about you. Can’t say that when it happened i wasn’t angry or sad…but I gave myself the time to analyse and realised that maybe what happened should just give me a lesson. We all have our defects and…

  • My sunshine my silver lining

    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…

  • Romanian Food:  Diverse and Delicious European Cuisine

    Variety is the spice of life when it comes to Romanian cuisine and you’ll find that most dishes are influenced by a number of nationalities. This is what makes Romanian food so diverse and yes, so delicious. Here are just a few examples of the wide range of dishes from this vibrant European country as well as a few drinks that will act as the perfect accompaniment. A wealth of influences Germany, Italy, Poland, France and Russia have all played their part in shaping the Romanian cuisine. The country has also been occupied in the past by the Greeks and Romans meaning you can expect many recognisable flavours in this…

  • 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…

  • Sisters 1/2017

    I really missed looking back at my siblings/sisters posts at the end of last year. Half way through 2016 I simple stopped posting pictures with my girls and reviewing their month. So this year i promised myself i will start doing it again, continue to record their life as I started years ago after my eldest was born. Kara is now almost 8 – 7 years and 10 months to be more exact and Anastasia is 4 years and 1 month and believe it or not we are still live in my hometown. I can’t believe there are almost 4 years since we moved back home. I am happy to say that…

    Our 2017 Winter Holiday

    Happy New Year everyone! I know it’s been a while since I wrote on this blog but we’ve been quite busy during the winter holidays. Between celebrations, my work as a freelancer in the world of digital marketing and our prolonged trip to the mountains there was no time to spare whatsoever. But i’ve missed a lot writing here and I had to comeback and share with you a little bit about our last month. We were really happy that daddy was able to stay almost 6 weeks with us but as expected that made saying goodbye a couple of says ago even harder for all of us but especially…
