Busy afternoon!

Today was definitely too cold to go out, so we decided to come back home and work on the to do list! Plus Maya had to do her homework. I’m still at the very first stage of planning, but I hope I’m on the right way. I’m trying to be more organized and I hope…

Birthday party!

    Maya’ s social life is far more developed than mine at the moment. This is a fact! Today we were at one of her friends’ birthday and they had so much fun jumping on trampolines. I actually enjoyed it too. It’s surprising how good our kids pick their friends. The most of the…

Evening walk!

  Two days ago I decided I’d try a different route on the way back home and I walked along the canal.  It took me a little bit over an hour as usual, but I could see a bit of different scenery.  The water is fascinating also during the night.  And look at the swans,…

Good morning from the dark side!

  I hope you’re familiar with my pictures by now. I’m aware I’m not very good at taking them, but sometimes the result takes me aback entirely.  Take this one for example.  When I walked next to the dock this morning, the sky was pitch black and the red lights at the very end were…

Alternative way to relax!

  As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I’m trying to find a way to relax.  Actually I’m trying several things…all together.  I know I should wait and see whether one of them works first and then, in case, add a second or a third to the pile.  However, I think that my stress…

Never give up!

Something I’m really getting good at is to get up after falling. I honestly lost the count on how many times I had to interrupt my writing trend. One time was the stress, one time the lack of sleep, one time Maya was sick and so on… Well, just to let you know, I’m trying…

Maya and mum afternoons!

And finally, after the Christmas break, I started again my mum and Maya’s afternoons. Today we went to buy her friend’s birthday present and then to eat a snack at the KFC. Since Maya tried the pop corn chicken at the airport in Manchester, she loved them and wanted to try them again. Although I…

Baby steps!

It’s true what they say: slow down and go ahead in baby steps.  Sometimes, it is also astonishing how we keep improving without realizing it.  I’m always so concentrated on what I don’t do or on what I would like to accomplish, that I don’t stop and turn behind me to check what I’ve done…

3, 2, 1…week end!

  Finally the week end starts…I was so looking forward to it! And I welcome it with my cup collection! Well, part of it. I have many more but these are my favorite. A special thanks to Ana for the cute Hedwig cup and to Helena for the awesome Goonies cup!
