Vanyo's name day was on January 7th /Saturday/. Vlado and I had picked the children up from Karlovo the previous evening, so the four of us celebrated it together...:) We visited my parents for lunch as my dad had a name day too and we spent a very nice time there - enjoying delicious food, good drinks and a funny conversation...:)
Needless to say, Vanyo got some nice gifts for his name day - a Lego City set from his sister, his dad and me and some money from my parents and my mother-in-law...:) He was soooo happy!!!:)))
The Monday that followed Vanyo's name day /January 9th/ was the first school day after the Christmas holidays, so my son brought two boxes of chocolates as a treat for his classmates and teachers...:) He was very proud that his name day was celebrated that long...;)
Other than the celebration of Vanyo's name day, that weekend was quite uneventful... I guess the only other thing worth mentioning is that we saw 'Real Steel' /wonderful movie - interesting, touching, exciting... And it also has Jugh Jackman in it... What else could a girl like me need in a movie?!:P/.
Last weekend we saw another nice movie - 'Johnny English Reborn' /quite funny, I liked it a lot:)/.
Yesterday was a very busy and stressful day - I had to get up too early /5.45 a.m./ in order to catch a bus to Botevgrad /a town in the mountains, 60 kilometers away from Sofia/ as I had a case there...:( To top it off, it had started snowing that morning, but luckily I didn't have any unpleasant road adventures!!!:) The views of the snowy mountains were fantastic!!!:))) And the best thing about the trip was that I made it to finish reading the fourth book of the Vulgar Novels series of the Bulgarian author Hristo Kaltchev - 'Liquidate the General'. I have read it in 1998, but it was nice to re-read it after a few years /this time as an e-book on my phone/...:)
