    Who are you to judge?

    As I don’t want to disappoint you…today I have a new funny cartoon about social network: Now a funny story about my little one: We started to potty train boogie about a month and a half ago. She is still wearing nappies at night but most nights the nappies are dry. However, when we go out to shops sometimes she has some kind of…”fear”…regarding the public toilets. She doesn’t do it all the time and sometimes she is perfectly fine. I am not sure why but that happen today as well. She hold it for so long and even when I took her to the toilet she was somehow stopping…

    Martisor – 1st of March

    Happy Martisor Day! 1st of March – the first day of Spring. On this day we celebrate the “Martisor” in Romania. It is such a nice and sweet tradition which symbolically, it is correlated to women and to fertility as a means of life and continuity. The beginnings of this tradition are still a mystery, but it is said that it originated in ancient Rome, because New Year’s Eve was celebrated on the 1st of March (Martius), the month of the war god Mars. He had a double role: both protector of agriculture and of war, so the celebration signified the rebirth of nature. The duality of symbols is kept…

I spent the last hour or so completing my Handbook and reading the Thinking Slimmer website. There are so many stories there of mummy bloggers that lost weight losing the Slimpod! I have to say that I am a bit…maybe more than a bit sceptic about this whole listening and slimming thing. However I do hope is going to work!

  • My thoughts and sorrows

    Breathe

    Middle of the week already. Why is the time passing so fast? Today…i experienced more tantrums from my daughter,really busy commuting and really busy at work. Life seems sometimes composed from work and sleep and that is about it. Today i learned that when getting annoyed or angry to seat back and count up to 10 works. Ah..and taking big deep breathes as well! So here are my Words of Wisdom for today: Smile, breathe and go slowly.  ~Thich Nhat Hanh   Breathe.  Let go.  And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.  ~Oprah Winfrey
