    I love you

     I am so proud of you my darling Kara. Day after day you are showing me how kind and loving you can be. Day after day you are showing me how much you love your sister. You are cheeky and funny. I can’t believe your sense of humour is so developed at not only 5 years old. You make your sister laugh out loud. You make my heart smile. You are so smart – you speak and think in both romanian and english. You love crafting and colouring.And when the music starts you are not waiting long before your start moving and shaking your little legs in the rhythm of…

    Choosing who to marry

    The conversations my darling daughter Kara is starting are just mind blowing and funny altogether. I don’t mind however because she lets me into her world by saying such amazing and surprising things. As it happens I was watching one of those programs on TLC about weddings the other day while she was playing happily with her sister. Not long into the program she stopped and came next to me on the couch and she said: “Mummy I want to wear a wedding dress like that but…I don’t know what husband I am going to marry!”   “Excuse me sweetheart?” I wasn’t sure that I actually heard it right so…

    I want to be a REAL princess

    I said it many times on this blog already that my 4 year old is a very girly girl. This was proven to me even more over the holidays period,  Because she knew she didn’t have to go to nursery every single morning started with the same question: “Mummy mummy can I please please wear a dress today?” with her eyes still half closed. And she didn’t give up until she got the wanted answer: “Yes!”  I mean seriously. The only thing I wanted was to sleep and lounge in my pj’s.  She was over the moon when the answer was YES and she would soon just run to the bedroom to…

    2014 – Happy New Year!

    Last year was a life changing, difficult and interesting year all together. I am not gong to talk about what happened last year because i already done it in a different post. I am hoping that this year will come with more happiness then the year before though. I am hoping that i will change my way of thinking and concentrate more on the positive side of things rather than on the negative side of things. I will try and enjoy the good and positive in my life. I think this will be better than try and change the negative. Sometimes negative things need to happen. Taking a break from blogging…

    2013 – A retrospective

    Last year I was writing me about my wishes for 2013. Now looking back…do I analyse what I achieve and what I didn’t achieve? Although I found the post and linked it up above I am finding it really hard to read it because I know that at least one thing didn’t change. Although it’s been a year since I gave birth to my second daughter Baby A – I am still way more overweight than I should be. The clothes that I used to wear before I got pregnant are still too small and although I’ve been trying in my own ways to change I didn’t. I even started…

    What I “forgot”

    One of my fellow bloggers – a good friend in real life that i actually miss meeting for a chat and a meal wrote a post called – What MrsB forgot. Her post inspired me to write my own post. Me in 2004 She also was inspired to write the post because she is reading a book called “What Alice forgot” – a girl called Alice has slipped and and hit her head in her step-aerobics class and everyone’s telling her she’s misplaced the last ten years of her life. I am not as old as her in reality but i thought it can be good therapy to write about it.  …

    A slice of Britain

    These last 6 months were hard and tough and brilliant all at the same time. The move, the distance, the leg, the depression, the change – everything affected me in so many different ways…mostly bad ways i guess.  I had moments when i was crying so much i didn’t know if i will ever be able to stop. I had moments when i felt so low and lost that i just wanted to go and hide in a room…hole somewhere away from everything and everybody. I know that this is my depression and anxiety talking but you understand what i mean. But then i will turn to the social media…
