  • Cry in the dark

     “Cry in the dark” with Meryl Streep ! I watched it last night and i was so impressed! It make me feel sad because of the story and impressed on Meryl Streep performance. I am so sorry i missed on the opportunity to watch this movie until now when i am in my 30’s. Probably it was better because i can understand it more though… I highly recommend it to all the women out there and especially to all the mums. Even though the implications of the religion were quite high i still enjoyed this movie. I know that there are a lot of people out there that have faith…

  • Sad and lonely

    Winter…Very sad and lonely…do i always feel like this just before Christmas?!?!? I have family around but still. My daughter is wonderful and she can only bring a big smile on my face and i do love her to bits! So why i am so pathetic? Maybe is because i don’t really have a real friend around?!? i have nobody to talk to about my feelings and my thoughts. Everybody seems to be so judgemental around here…and because of that i prefer to keep it in myself. It is so hard! the only person i can really talk to is my husband but he is a guy and it’s just…

  • Winter in London

    It’s snowing in London! It’s snowing and all goes to a still! What is this all about? Disruptions everywhere – roads,airports and trains! It took some of my friends between 4 – 6 hours to get home! Incredible! I am amazed that in a country like England something like this can happen. Schools are closed and nurseries are closed and parents are stuck at home as well. I was expecting a different reaction this year! i am stuck at home as well with my daughter! Trying to work at the same time with taking care of my daughter is a challenge! thankfully she is a good girl and she is…
