It is time to start another week. I am so happy that you are interested in my blog.
I would have liked to write earlier than Monday evening but I have been really busy with Csilla. Let me tell you the story of my weekend.
On Saturday we left our house at 7pm and went to Bratislava. Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia and there is the airport that is not very big. Nowadays more and more people want to fly so our airport is under refurbishment to make it bigger. It is about 60 km from our house. I was in a fever so I did not have a bite all day. We arrived there a little early and we were waiting in the hall. At that time some planes arrived and we were looking at the people and asking each other: “Could they be people from London?” “No, they are too brown, they must come from Dubrovnik /Croatia/”, said my son. Shortly afterwards my daughter stood in the door and I was overjoyed. All my nervousness disappeared like a shot and I felt as right as rain. We hugged each other. It was a terrific feeling. On the way home she was speaking and speaking. And she had continued the talking after we arrived home so we did not get to bed until midnight.
On Sunday morning I prepared three courses for lunch: meat soup, meat dish, potato salad with mayonnaise and cake. After lunch we watched Formula 1 on TV. My husband likes the excitement of car racing and in the course of time I came to like it , too. This weekend the championship was in Monza. The race was very exciting. In a month the race will be in Japan in Suzuka. Do you like the F1?
Later we went to visit the grandparents both from my side and from my husband´s side. As Csilla says: “We saw puppies and doggies and bunnies and kitties”. She spoke about her experiences as a student in England and as a waitress in a restaurant. Everyone was really happy to see her again.
Getting back to the issue of rooting the trees out in our garden, my son was working there again together with my husband. Today he shovelled the soil back into the hole and this time, he broke the shovel. Now we have to buy a new digger and a new shovel as well. His blisters on the palm of his hand have already healed.
Today I am sending you some pictures of our house and our garden. I really look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
