James’ christening day! It was an absolutely gorgeous day filled with love and laughter, But I’m glad it’s over. Big events tend to stress me out especially when I’m the one organising them. But the day unfolded beautifully and was made possible by a big group of people I would like to thank.
Last month, Georgie took part in the filming of a TV commercial for Lanitis’ juices. I received the final cut this morning and am so excited to share it with you. Cube Productions did a fantastic job and of course I am in awe of my sweet baby boy, who is a natural! Also a big bravo to my beautiful niece Mia, who took on the role of one of Georgie’s sisters. The commercial will be coming soon to all TVs near you…
We are more than halfway through the summer holidays. Georgie’s first day at school is looming in the background of my mind. Yet it did not manage to spoil these purely magnificent days and nights we have spent with friends and family. Cold, miserable weather is more my cup of tea but man, I am learning to enjoy summer and I love it. Georgie has been on his best behaviour even after late nights and long days at the beach. I could not be prouder of him. We spent three days beachside and even though my camera was within reach, I just wasn’t interested. Instead I rode the ferris wheel with my heavenly baby at the fun park and rolled around in the sand with him on the beach. He is absolute joy and I am savouring every moment with him. Among our other summer activities are: celebrated papa’s birthday, took boat rides, barbeque’s in the rain, did yoga under a pine tree. And also welcomed my sister’s new baby boy. He arrived early and is absolutely perfect. Welcome to the family darling boy.
The absolutely phenomenal experience that is Pearl Jam cannot be expressed through an amateurish video but I hope it does manage to capture some of the magic. Enjoy!
Earlier last month, I received a phone call from a good friend of ours who owns a post- production company. He said his team was scouting locations for an upcoming TV ad and they would like to see our home as a possible candidate. Despite this new house of ours being nowhere near finished as far as my high interior expectations are concerned, I agreed. A lovely lady showed up the next day to take some pictures of our bedroom, Georgie’s bedroom and the living room, which were spaces they needed for the ad. She also took pictures and videos of Georgie and me! Turns out they needed a couple of people to be in the ad too. More specifically, a mummy and her baby to join two other mothers with their babies, who would also be part of the project. The ad would be for nappies (diapers, for my American friends) and Georgie and I would be IN IT! The actual confirmation didn’t come until two days before they were set to shoot, so I didn’t really have time to fully digest what a truly amazing experience this turned out to be for us. Georgie and me on an average day- –except for the makeup, hair, new clothes and a taped t-shirt on G. I am so glad I didn’t wimp out and say ‘no’ because I absolutely love the end result. The new Nannies ad is playing on Cyprus TV channels as of yesterday, so I can finally put it on the blog along with so many other sweet memories. I hope you like it!
