Carbonara can be an easy meal for the whole family. I do not cook often. In fact, I have never prepared a proper meal for my family.

Instead, my attention will be to see if I can tell what the… Read More It is a good thing that the children are noisy.
BoiBoy used to sleep with me in our master bedroom, until we started our business and reached home late every night. He now sleeps in the children’s room with AhMa and GerGer. He misses me, he says often (such a lovely boy). Some days, he will call me while I’m at work to request that… Read More Cheeky Wake Up Call
GerGer turned six in June this year, and we started her on weekly piano lessons in August. I am ashamed that I have little time to practice with her.
