On May 9th /Wednesday/ hubby told me we were going out in the evening, but he didn't tell me where...:) He took me to a very popular club, called 'Studio 5'. We saw a very funny one-man show...:) It was such a wonderful surprise!!!:) And the kids were super excited that their parents had gone on a date that evening...:)
That week Minnie found out that she had done great at the second part of the Ancient Languages Competition, so she qualified for the third part as well!!!:))) Of course, it was even more difficult, but I'm sure she had been successful once again!!!:)))
During the weekend that followed I saw 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows'. I was quite disappointed with the first movie and I didn't like much the second one either... There was some excitement in the beginning and in the end, but the rest felt too long...:(
Last weekend I saw a few more movies: 'Haywire' /some of my most favourite actors are playing in this movie, but unfortunately their presence was not enough to make me like it...:(/, 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1' /most of the movie was too slow for me, but the last half an hour was really interesting...:)/ and 'John Carter' /a total waste of time...:( If someone craves for sci-fi, he/she should better see 'Avatar' again...;)/.
I also finished reading 'Hobbit, or There and Back Again' by J.R.R. Tolkien that weekend. I read it as an e-book on my phone and I greatly enjoyed it...:) Now I'm looking forward to seeing the movie!!!:)
Not everything, which has happened in my life, however, was that nice... On May 22nd we were woken up at 3 a.m. by a nasty earthquake...:((( We were all so scared that we hardly had any sleep that night...:((( It was a strong earthquake /5.8/ and we were quite close to the epicentre /25km/, but luckily there were no casualties...
May 22nd happened to be the day when Vanyo officially finished 1st grade, so we had a celebration to attend!!!:) First we gathered in the classroom and the children had a very nice performance for us - they sang and recited poems...:))) They also got their certificates /Vanyo got two - for finishing the school year and for attending the project 'The School - a Friendship Environment':)/. Then there was a celebration for the whole school... Vanyo danced with his dance group there...:) I was so proud of him - even though he attended the dance lessons for only a few weeks, he did great!!!:)))
Today is my last day at work for this week... We're going to have a long /4-day/ weekend because May 24th /Thursday/ is an official holiday here /Day of Bulgarian Alphabet and Culture/ and we are given the Friday off as well /we were supposed to work the previous Saturday, May 19th, but luckily my boss allowed me to stay at home then...:)/. Needless to say, I'm more than ready for the long weekend!!!:) We don't have any special plans, we'll just go to Plovdiv and enjoy some relaxing quiet time at home, I guess...:)
