Mamma mia 2



I don't think I will ever watch the movie Mamma mia 2 (the topic of pregnancy is something I will avoid till the end of my life).  But there is something that I love about this movie: it was filmed in Croatia, on the island of Vis (and not in Greece!). If you have been reading my blog longer, then you know that I just love Croatian seaside - especially beautiful Dalmatia.

Someone who is really close to my heart just told me her big news. To make long and detailed story very short: she and her husband have just started on the project baby number 3. She will be 40 next year so she wishes to hurry before it is too late.

I love her. And I love her kids. But accepting them was raw and hard.

I know that I will love also her third child. Eventually.

But I really didn't need to know their decision. She could just told me when she gets pregnant.

Did she wonder how I felt afterwards?

Did she ask what is new in my personal life?

I could have told her that I had my last period 4 months ago.

And it is not because I am pregnant.

I am way too young to enter the menopause. And yet, here I am.

Home sweet home :)


Our little house is finished!!!!   We couldn't be happier. And we are both very tired.

Now we have to equip it with the most necessary furniture. We have to be quick. The first guests will arrive in less then one month :)

I am attaching a photo of our house detail. I planted the sunflowers myself. I love them, they are so pretty. Behind the sunflowers: there is wooden window of our guest bedroom.

Croatia


During the football match my husband got an email from his favourite pen-friend showing the map which country supports which team. It made us laugh :)

Our neighbours didn't win today, but also the second place is an awesome result.

I know that most of my readers haven't been to Croatia, so here is the official tourism link:

Croatia has always been my favourite holiday destination.

Photo taken in the south of Croatia (Dalmatia, island Brač), few years ago: 




Football


I have just returned from short holidays on the Croatian coast. Photo attached. 
It was great to watch football match Croatia - England in Croatia. 
I don't  have time to write.  The final match has just started :)
Go, Croatia, go!!

New blog in French: Des meandres aux etoiles

I am very happy to share with you that my lovely French friend (that I met in Paris in June) has just started to write a blog:
https://desmeandresauxetoiles.com/

(translation of the blog title: From the meanders to the stars) 

She will be happy if you leave a comment on her blog.

If you don't speak French - this is not a problem at all. Google translator is a great help.

J'ai beaucoup de chance





I have just come back home from beautiful Paris, from some work related meetings.  I did have a day there just for me. I loved walking around.The more I know Paris, the more I love it.

The highlight was meeting a new friend that I met through my blog. She is French, she doesn't live in Paris and she just happened to be here, also for work.  (btw: she is planning to start writing her own blog, in French. As soon as she starts, I will share with you link to her blog).

It was just lovely meeting her.

And if it wasn't for the train strike, I would  meet another friend, my dear Kaymet. 

I felt so connected with the world... just because I didn't decide to be locked alone into the lonely world of childlessness. Instead I decided that to start writing my own blog and reach out to people.

I was learning French for four years in high school. I understand a lot, but I can not speak. It is on my wish list to learn it more. So I was very proud when I ordered in Paris: "Je voudrais une quiche végétarienne, s'il vous plaît." and they understood me. This is the delicious pie that I got:

Eating healthy



My husband and I don't earn a lot of money. But we have something that many of the richest people on earth don't have: plenty of fresh organic food which is completely free.

I took this photo on Saturday:
- lettuce: from my garden
- bluberries and chanterelles:  picked by me in a beautiful forest
- zucchinis: from my granny's garden (mine are only starting to grow now)
- terragon: from my garden
- cherries: picked by mom on a neighours' tree
- raspberries: picked by mom on her garden
- eggs: from my uncle's hens

I feel very rich  :)
