• 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.  …

  • Every cloud has a silver lining…

    We arrived in a very hot Romana at lunch time on the 2nd of May… 10 degrees more than in London. 29 C….clear sky…and with 2-3 hours still to go to my home town… Although quite big and spacious my dads car A/C failed to work… I was boiling…and Kara had a massive tantrum because she fell asleep and woke up very sweaty.. However we soon arrived in my hometown which unfortunately looked very disappointing…The lack of money in the local government was and is very obvious 🙁 The look of the blocks, the state of the pavements and streets and even the look of our pride and joy the…

  • Remember always

    Today is 1st of April – Fools Day. I remember that I used to have lots of fun when I was a kid pulling pranks to my fellow school colleagues. But 1st f April always been special to me for another reason to. It was my grandmother’s birthday on this day. Although she is no longer with us…I still remember and I will always remember. She loved celebrating her birthday. She used to bake her jam cake and make a big batch of coffee because she knew that all her friends will stop by. She was much loved my grandmother by everybody-her friends, her neighbours and of course her family.…

  • Enough

    Today i hoped on the scales again.There was no surprise that the scales are now showing even more than when i came back from the hospital with my new baby. It’s depressing! And i felt like crying instantly…. My daughter is right. Mummy can’t eat cakes anymore. Mummy needs to go on a DIET! God how i hate this word! But there is no other way for me….it’s either DIET or FATNESS! I am cursed with genes that will not allow me to live a life without watching what i am eating. It’s true. The only one that is a normal weight in my family is my sister. I want my…

  • My happy place

    The Kitchen is my favourite room. I think this love affair started in my childhood. All the big and important things were discussed in the kitchen. We all ate in the kitchen too. It was quite big so the dining table was situated there too. But what I loved most was the time when I used to help my mum with the cooking. That was a special time. I felt that during that time I could talk with my mum about anything so it brought us closer really. When I think back about my childhood I see myself in the kitchen too. In a way it’s my happy place. When…

  • My wishes for 2013

    I’m not the kind of person that believes in resolutions. I believe in change. And I know that change takes time. Sometimes more than a year. This is why I make wishes.

Churchill   So here are my Wishes For 2013: 1. To become a more relaxed and positive person, mother,wife,being – I’ve been way to stressed and depressed the last couple of years; 2. To become healthier by eating healthier foods and being more active; 3. To get…

  • We are waiting….

    Today is the 29th of November. I’m due to give birth in 2 days time and although I thought that my baby girl will arrive by now we are still waiting…. I remember that with boogie my water broke two days before my due date and in some ways I was hoping it will happen again today. My pains been coming and going for the past couple of weeks too. Not sure if the pains were just Braxton Hicks or normal contractions…they seem a bit too string to be only BH though… I’m wondering if in some ways I’m stopping myself to get into labour. I do worry a lot…
