    Goodbye flat 3

    That’s it! In less than 12 hours we are catching the plane to Romania! Hubby will stay two weeks and us, the girls will stay until the school starts in September. I keep thinking it’s 3 months but it is actually more than that. For the last week all we done is to pack: boxes to go to Romania with toys and clothes, stuff to sell, stuff that hubby will keep with him and our bags for the plane. Who thought that we could fit so many things in a small one bedroom apartment? And still it’s not over. We still have lots and lots to pack – the rest…

    Taking care of my “garden”

    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. Faster that I thought. And then while I was pregnant…

    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…

    My confession

    I have moments like today when I’m proud to be a Londoner! London is always buzzing day or night, there is always something happening out there! I’m proud to be living and working in a town where people enjoy their time and feel like they belong because this is such a multicultural city! In London you can be cool, you can dress as you like and go wherever you want. It feel like this is the centre of Europe rather than only UK’s capital. English, Spanish , Irish , Italian , polish, Romanian,Estonian,Swedish,French,Turkish , Australians etc. can find a place they feel good here. I never thought that I will…

    Around London in 3 days…

     These last couple of days been so nice! I was off work because my sister came to London to visit me. The days went really fast but it was lovely! On Tuesday we visited Borough Market. It was lovely to finally visit the market – it was my first time can you believe it? – and then catch up with Annie. In the afternoon we travel to Camden Town. When my sister lived in London a couple of years back we use to go to Camden every couple of weeks. Needles to say we had some food and bought some bits and bobs. I even bought a…check this out! A…

    The last guest post for the month of February comes from my lovely Estonian friend Mrs. B that blogs over at Cranky monkeys. She has a lovely blog and she always inspires me to write from the heart.
