    Emotions…

    Yesterday the Romanians everywhere celebrated “Dragobetele” and love all at the same time.Dragobetele is the romanian Valentine’s Day basically although this days is not celebrated as much as the latest one. The tradition says that you should show love and kiss and hug on this day and that you should not cry on this day because tears will bring only bad things on the becoming months. I cried a lot yesterday though. I felt sad and I still feel very sad. I am not sure if this time is just the fact that I am emotional because I am before that time of the month or because of my ongoing…

    My 5 favourite family destinations for young children

      Guest blogger: Katie is a self-confessed traveloholic. Travelling across Europe, Asia and Africa with her family has provided them with new experiences, new recipes and unforgettable memories.  http://www.delightso.me I’ve always loved travel so becoming a mum wasn’t going to curb my enthusiasm for overseas adventures. In fact, it’s probably heightened it because now I get to share my adventures with my two little ones. My eldest had her first trip on a plane when she was just three months old and my youngest managed to beat even that, boarding his first flight a month earlier. Despite the obvious difficulties of having to haul more equipment and luggage around with us,…

    Conflicted

    Life… It certainly isn’t easy. As soon as you feel like you know what you doing and you are comfortable with your decisions something happens and all is taking a new perspective. I am the kind of person who like stability and change disturbs me out of my way. It makes me feel restless and conflicted. It makes me wonder constantly if the things I am doing are the right ones for me, my family and our future.I was born and lived until I finished high school in only one city. This is why I thought that after I will get married my life will be in only one city…

    Middle-Eastern Cooking with the Family

    Modern tastes have become increasingly sophisticated – not only in adults, but also in children. If my mother had suggested during my eighties childhood that I try hummus, for example, I would have fainted! However, more exotic flavours are a regular feature of school lunch boxes at my daughter’s school, and I’ve found that her young friends are interested in tasting some of the more experimental dishes I’ve offered at parties. The likes of spaghetti bolognese, curry and Chinese food have long been assimilated into the standard British diet. More recently, Mexican food enjoyed a moment in the sun, while Middle-Eastern and North African food is one of the trends…

    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…
