Destiny Found

The new /and - sadly - final/ season of my most favourite TV show LOST has started earlier this month and I am as addicted as ever!!!:) And I just love the phrase under some of the season 6 posters /'Destiny Found'/!!!:)

What else has happened here since I last blogged?! Let me see... The weekend of February 6th-7th we spent in Karlovo with my in-laws... Minnie had her Maths course at the private school from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. on the Saturday and when the course was over, we were off to Karlovo. It had started snowing at that time and surprisingly the snow didn't melt as easily as before...:P In spite of the weather Vlado and I decided to go to a pub with a couple of our Karlovo friends and we had a very nice evening together!!:) And this meeting with my friends made my weekend with the in-laws much more bearable!!!:P

When we got home on the Sunday, there was so much snow outside, that Vlado and the kids decided to go out and play...:) They fought with snow balls and even made a snowman!!!:)

Last weekend /February 13th - 14th/ was spent at home but was quite busy nevertheless... Hubby was on duty on the Saturday, so we didn't see much of him that day... And Minnie attended a Bulgarian Language and Literature Competition from 8.30 a.m. until noon. The aim of this competition was to prepare the kids for the High School Entrance Exams in May... My daughter, however, was a bit upset that some of the questions in the competition were about stuff they haven't studied at school /still I'm pretty sure she did well anyway...;)/.

On the Sunday Minnie had her Maths course at the private school /so we had to get up early then as well:(/ and in the evening she attended the birthday party of a friend /which took place at a bar, called 'Escada' and, apparently, my daughter has had a very nice time there/!!!:)

Last week I finally saw 'Avatar' ... I didn't have high expectations, so I wasn't surprised that I found the first hour of the movie a bit boring... But the rest of the movie turned out to be quite interesting and I enjoyed it a lot in the end!!!:)

A nice weekend...

Last weekend was a very nice one...:) On Saturday we made it to visit the couple whose 'kumove' we are /Maria and Nickolay/ just as we planned...:) We followed the tradition and brought them 'kravay', a cake and 'rakiya'... The highlight of the visit was that we saw again their baby Angel who has grown up so much and was so sweet and amusing...:) We had delicious lunch and an interesting chat... We'll meet again at Easter when according to the tradition they should visit us and bring painted eggs and 'kozunak'...:)

In the evening we finally saw 'Sherlock Holmes'... I was so impatient to see this movie... And I when I finally did, I was quite disappointed...:( I like both Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law a lot and I have always loved the books and movies about Sherlock Holmes but this movie just wasn't intriguing enough...:( I even felt bored at times...:(
