Let it be Christmas

Since papa’s surgery, understandably things have been a little different around here. Example: papa no longer needs to say goodbye to us every morning before heading to work, something that has completely thrown Georgie. Over the first three days, he would frequently and randomly ask papa when he would be going to work. It took him a while to wrap his head around the fact that he would have papa all to himself ALL DAY. The little dude is in a very happy place. In fact we all are. At times I’ve felt pressure bearing down on my shoulders and a sudden pang of sadness but hey, at least I have cheese, The Elf, a warm home, beautiful babies babbling then sleeping the afternoon away and alas, snow. With Christmas around the corner, I think everything’s gonna be alright.

masks and games

Making masks was nowhere near as much fun as hide and seek was today. We’ve only just started playing with Georgie and it’s got all three of us in fits! Georgie hides in front of the bedroom door, papa throws a sheet over him and then boo! Love these guys.

a mummy’s birthday

         So I turned 31. I’ve been telling people it’s just number because that is truly how I feel. I can’t say that my age defines who I am or how I live my life because it doesn’t. If anything, being a mummy and having a birthday is far more terrifying than getting older. You wake up expecting, if only for a second, that there won’t be any washing up to do, laundry to be folded or even a toddler who wakes you up at 6.30 but alas you realize that birthday mummies still continue to be just that: mummies. I did spend the day with my mum, sister and the kids as well as papa’s side of the family but the highlight of my day was having dinner with my boys at the Hard Rock Cafe- which just opened in Nicosia. Hey! We’re getting there slowly but steadily…        We opted for the early bird special so we were leaving the joint before nine! How embarrassing! But I’m sure all you mothers understand the issue with keeping a toddler up wayyyyy pass his bedtime. To be honest, my little dude was actually quite well-behaved. He wanted out of the highchair as soon as he was strapped in and ended up eating garlic bread instead of a bowl of mac and cheese which I desperately ignored for an hour but once he was out, all he wanted to do was enjoy the view from the glass balcony of the second floor. I even got to eat!       Georgie’s grandparents volunteered to watch him for the night so papa and I could enjoy some alone time but I refused. What kind of birthday dinner would it be without my darling little family. I love you guys….maybe papa a bit more because he did source out yellow tulips you know!

on our island

the camel park

    Sunday. With no lunches or birthday parties to attend, our little family called for a mini road trip- really, is it possible to take any other kind with a 20-month old? Papa and I decided Zygi, a little fishing village outside of Limassol, would make the perfect destination. We took the coastal road and found a sign for a camel park. Er, no-brainer. Georgie had just woken up from his brief nap in the car so we headed straight to the camel park and then to Zygi for fresh fish. It was a pretty full but exciting day for my little dude who couldn’t wait to start feeding the camels and horses. A truly great place to take kids for a fun day out. just watch those ostriches!
