    Romania – the good, the bad, the ugly

    Romania is a beautiful country. I love my country. Even Prince Charles loves my country. He comes to visit Transilvania at least once a year. He even owns a couple of nice houses here and helps in promoting the Carpathian mountains in UK and all over the world. Watch the video “Wild Carpathia” to which Prince Charles contributed with more than just an interview. You can listen to watch his majesty says about my country from minute 41. It is great that this video was made and because of the charity you can hear about in the video is enabling the kids to learn more about nature and how to…

  • A family day out at Legoland Windsor

    It was daddy’s wish to write this post and mummy more than welcomed the idea: This weekend we were given the opportunity to visit Legoland Windsor and as it was our daughters 4th birthday the other week, we jumped at the chance. Little did we know that the UK was due to enter a second ice age and that we wouldn’t have as many problems with traffic on the way as we would stampeding Woolly Mammoths! However, this did uncover a few things about Legoland that we wouldn’t have noticed had it been a hot and sunny day. (If you can remember what one of them is?) So without further…

  • Keeping the balance during February half term holidays

    Half term is just around the corner which means that once again I will have on my hands two kids full time: my baby and my toddler. It will be such a challenge. Having a baby that breastfeeds every 2-3 hours and a 3 and a half year old that wants more or less constant attention will be really tiring. There are so many wonderful cheap UK breaks out there but unfortunately daddy has to work that week. So for sure I will have to find ways to keep busy. I’m planning to keep my eldest busy with puzzles, crafts and drawing while at home. And maybe she could help…

  • SET4SPORT At London Zoo

    This weekend my hubby and my daughter had the chance to meet Judy Murray and the set4sport team at London Zoo. Unfortunately mummy was busy with other duties so she couldn’t enjoy the fun. He also write a blog The voice from the abyss.  Here is what my hubby says about their fun day out!  On Saturday I had the opportunity to spend the day at London Zoo with our daughter courtesy of Set 4 Sport, the parent and child sports initiative set up by Judy Murray (mother of tennis player Andy Murray). We were there to try out a few of the games she has developed for parents to play…

  • London Sites That Made Me A Cool Mum

    Never be confused about what to do in London again! There’s plenty for kids to enjoy, with enchanted Harry Potter nooks and the double-decker tours (at the top of course!). There are also loads of free activities, like quirky museums, free cinema and skateboard-bound street art exhibitions. After a day out in these places, my kids were singing my praises as the coolest mum this side of the River Thames. Skateboard Park The South Bank isn’t all about posh concerts. A skate park lurks underneath Queen Elizabeth Hall: just don’t let the kids ride in the half-pipe without the right gear. The scenery is fascinating as it’s one of the…
