Day 271 – Parents and social media

D

I am taking a break from the Childless mother story today and I wanted to touch a more up to date topic 🙂 . Social media has become the thing nowadays and if used properly it can do wonders. Internet is an amazing tool as well as it can be a very powerful enemy. Parents, grandparents, they are all using it in order to communicate and share faster, more efficiently. As long as the...

Day 259 – Fun Sunday

D

After a whole week of running around, I decided to skip all the usual Sunday routine and plan something more fun for the three of us to do. So, when the cocka-doodle-doo sang from the other room, I jumped out of bed and brought her into our room for morning cuddles. Ephia usually doesn’t like any changes that get in the way of her routine, but who doesn’t love morning cuddles in the...

Day 257 – Train wreck

D

10.02 pm – My eyelids can barely stay open. My body twitches once in a while and I have to make a real effort not to miss my stop. If there is a stop. I could easily fall asleep here, in this tram, on this seat, with all these people watching me. I am dead tired. The kind of tiredness that comes after you intentionally pushed all your limits. I am tired and hungry, but I remember feeling...

Day 243 – About family

D

This has always been a very sensitive issue to many. Which one is more important: the family you are born into or the one you build for yourself from scratch? I was asked to talk about this many times before, so I will finally express my opinion on the subject. I will start by saying that I think the most important person in your life must be yourself and that in order to commit to any type of...

Day 238 – Melancholy

D

I miss driving. I miss waking up in the morning and wanting to drive 300 km away. I miss the solitude of driving and the music played loudly by the stereo. I miss it all. When I need to be somewhere, if given the choice I will always choose the train. Trains are comfortable, trains are your moving libraries that safely take you to your destination. But, a car… a car should only be used for...

Day 235 – First day

D

For the last ten years we have celebrated the New Year on the road. We have never stayed in one place and the car was the best friend that could take us anywhere our heart desired.This year we wanted to do something different, and because they say that the way you start your year will define the rest of it, we decided to do something a little out of ordinary. We spent our day among old friends...

Day 234 – New hopes, new smiles and new paths

D

I couldn’t have hoped for a better New Year’s Eve; it’s snowing today and not the occasional snowflake, but actual snow with big, cute snowflakes. I always feel like a kid when snowing and seeing my daughter outside, playing with the snowflakes, dancing together as they fell and trying to catch them in our palm was more then I could have asked. Now, about my year. It’s...

Day 228 – Merry Christmas

D

The big day is finally here. All the preparations have been made, a drop of white wine was sipped, photos have been taken and now we have crawled in bed, hoping for Santa to show up. Christmas is a special day for me. I don’t know if it’s the atmosphere, the smells, the food, or just some weird connection I have with this holiday, but I embrace it fully. When I was little I remember...

Day 227 – It’s officially Christmas Eve

D

My house smells like Christmas Eve today. Our traditional food is cooking slowly, there is a crazy smell of oranges all around the house and we are getting ready for our annual Christmas photo. This day always reminds me of my childhood and the way I used to decorate the tree on my own, always on Christmas Eve, while my mom was cooking and mixing spices in the kitchen. We never had a very...

Day 225 – Productive day

D

I wish I could be a morning person. When you wake up early in the morning to work on all your deadlines, the day seems to be longer and you actually feel like you have done a lot (maybe because you dis, doh). So, this morning I woke up and tried to be a morning person. I turned on my computer at 8 am, erased the fog from my eyes and started working. I must admit the first ten minutes were...
