What a day, what a week, what a year!

I've been quiet, I know, but haven't really been in the mood to write. Lack of inspiration, nothing to talk about.

Let's see... Randomly, as usual:

* Cipri's mami, tati, sis and bro-in-law came and left. I think they liked the trip. Weather was nice, they managed to see a lot and most of all they spent some time and money at Primark (the cheapest store in the world because the mass production and cheap labour I would say). I think I might have some pics here, but Anca should have even more and will probably post them soon (no pressure).
I was surprised that they liked the supermarket food (ready made stuff that you just put in the oven and voila). They are used to healthy homemade food so I would think they would feel a bit sick. Having said that, Anca agreed with me about the food here being genetically modified, tasting weird and deforming your body. Not sure if she agrees with the last part, but well...
No, I still don't speak Romanian. :(

* holidays booked and paid for. Next Thursday, Sardinia here we go!

* busy busy freaking busy at work. Man, this year is the worth ever!

* and also very stressful. Credit crunch, crisis, redundancies. Nobody is immune to it! Sad day at work today. Life goes on though and we are all alive and healthy.

* tube strike in London. Although I don't need the tube at all to go to work, the city is a mess and trains are packed and delayed.

* been good and go to the gym 2x week. Aiming for 4 from when I'm back from hols. :)


  1. Yeah I've been lazy in posting pics from London...coming soon. I'm still getting used to working the whole day for others :).

    About the food...the English food is good for let's say 2 weeks, you can imagine how we devoured when back home our "sarmale", soup etc. Now I realize how much I love the Romanian food!

    Promise to update the blog:) pressure!

  2. Awn, I hope Sardinia will be a good treat after all this hard work and that the second half of the year will be much better and quieter.
    Miss ya! x x x

  3. I have to defend the genetically modified food. I understand Europeans do not like it, and that is because they do not understand what it means. I think they should be more concerned about hormones, pesticides and all those other good cancer giving chemicals. We do not inherit the DNA of the food we eat, therefore modiffing it to help the food (plants/animals) does not mean we screw ourselves up!

  4. Yeah, I have to say that when I said genetically modified, I meant full of hormones. I have to say I don't have an opinion about genetically modified food as I know little about it, but I hate food with hormones, because it deformed by body!! As long as it doesn't cause any aparent damage, I don't care much.


Uuuuh, so you decided to comment, huh? Well done!
