The month of July so far...:)



   

Minnie and Vanyo spent the first week of July at home with us and it was so wonderful to have them around…:)

On July 6th we drove to Sofia because Vanyo was invited to the birthday party of his dear friend Neda.:) Minnie joined the fun too, so both children had a great time /there were laser fights, karaoke, dances…/:) Hubby and I enjoyed the company of the parents – we knew some of them so was nice to catch up…:) When the party was over, we left the children in Karlovo… Sadly hubby and I still had to work, so we had to get back to Plovdiv…

On July 22nd hubby and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary…:) We didn’t do anything huge, just a special dinner at home, but it was nice and romantic anyway…:)

Last weekend we picked the children and Teddy up from Karlovo…:) It was so wonderful to be together again!:) And on Sunday we drove to Tatarevo where we enjoyed super yummy BBQ prepared by my parents…:) After the BBQ we left the children and Teddy in Tatarevo where they’ll stay by the end of the month… Hubby and I still need to work this week, but as soon as we finish, we’ll finally take the children home!:) Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this moment!:)

So far I’ve seen eleven movies this month: ‘Up in the Air’ /nothing special:(/, ‘An Education’ /silly and boring:(/, ‘Did You Hear About the Morgans’ /there were some funny moments but nothing hilarious/, ‘Unknown’ /there were some interesting twists and turns in the story, but the movie as a whole was not too thrilling and exciting.../, ‘Walk of Shame’ /very silly:(/, ‘Miss Austen Regrets’ /beautiful and interesting movie, bitter-sweet as life itself... The actors were great too...:)/, ‘Miss Potter’ /I greatly enjoyed this movie - it was beautiful, touching, exciting and Renee Zellweger does a fantastic job!:) Two thumbs up!:)/, ‘Charlie St.Cloud’ /a very beautiful and touching movie..../, ‘Closer’ /I love all the actors of this movie so tried really hard to like it but it just didn't happen...:(/, ‘Last Night’ /very boring:(/ and ‘Noah’ /total disappointment:(/.

In the beginning of July I finished reading ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ by E.L.James. This was definitely the most dynamic and dramatic book of the trilogy so it was an easy read... Still, in all honesty, I doubt I liked it enough to recommend or re-read it... The book I started reading next is the fifth /and so far the latest/
book of the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R.Martin'A Dance with Dragons' and I'm greatly enjoying it so far...:)

Some more June news...

Vanyo enjoyed the week with my parents to the fullest and now he is back at home...:) Minnie finished 11th grade yesterday, so she joined him too and now they're both on summer holidays...:) They'll spend the current week in Plovdiv and then they'll go to Karlovo...:) 
 
As always, Minnie got ‘excellent’ 6 /the best mark in Bulgaria/ for all of her subjects - Bulgarian Language and Literature, English, Latin, Ancient Greek, Ancient Bulgarian, History, Culture, Philosophy, Ethics and Law, IT, Profile /Latin with Italian/ and Sports. Needless to say, we are all super proud of her!:) 
 
June turned out to be a great month for movie watching indeed - I saw three more movies by the end of it...:) Here is the list: ‘The Spy Next Door’ /funny and entertaining:)/ ‘Green Lantern’ /great entertainment for the whole family:)/ and ‘Mansfield Park’ /sadly I didn't like it much - the story was not interesting enough and I just couldn't force myself to care for the characters...:(/.
