    Even before we got married Adrian and I decided that we will move to Romania before having kids. We said that we will only live in London for a couple of years. It didn’t happen. We just didn’t manage to save enough money to move to Romania. And we enjoyed our free life and without worries in London too so we didn’t rush. HAVING BABIES But in 2008, two years after we got married – Adrian was hitting 40’s the year after so we decided that it was time to start trying for a baby. I got pregnant very fast.

    Moving again

    On 2nd of May 2013 I'm flying back to Romania with my hubby and my girls. Yes I'm going back at least for a couple of months. I'm planning to spend all summer in Romania with both my girls. During all this time my hubby will be in England still. It will be hard without him but at the same time this is something that we need to do...We need to see if we still like it in Romania. If we do then we will stay and try to make a future. As you can imagine it will be hard. Kara doesn’t really know a lot of Romanian so it…

    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…
