Minnie's Birthday...:)

 
Minnie became 17 on December 11...:) I still can't believe that my little girl is so big already...:) Sadly her birthday happened on a working day /Wednesday/, so she was in Sofia and the rest of us - in Plovdiv... It's the first time I wasn't with her on her birthday, so needless to say, this made me feel a bit sad as well... 
 
Still, Minnie had had a lovely birthday - she had brought a box of chocolates to school as a treat for her classmates and teachers and in the evening her grandmother and uncle /who were staying with her in Sofia then/ had taken her out for a coffee and a cake...:) Minnie had also celebrated with her best friends - both in Sofia and in Plovdiv - the following few days...:) And when she came home for the weekend, she celebrated with us as well - we had special dinner on Saturday, followed by a delicious chocolate mousse ice cream cake...:) 
 
Of course, Minnie got some presents - very sweet and thoughtful gifts from her friends and money from her relatives /which will most probably be spent for clothes and books:)/...:) 
 
The day after Minnie's birthday she found out that she had received 90% at her German A2 exam...:) Needless to say, we are all very proud of her for doing so well again!:)

Quiet days...


Besides the week that I spent in Sofia with Minnie /November 18th - 22nd/ nothing interesting happened last month...

By the end of November  I saw one more movie - 'Elysium', but sadly it was nothing special...

In November I also finished reading /on my phone/ 'Fifty Shades of Grey' by E.L.James. It turned out to be such a lame book - I didn't find it neither shocking, nor thrilling, nor exciting...:( Luckily it was easy to read, so I finished it quite quickly...:). The book I started next is the third one of the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series by George R.R. Martin - 'A Storm of Swords'...:) I'm still at the beginning but it has started out great, so I'm sure it will be just as interesting as the previous two books of the series...:)
