    All is white

    January 12 in Hungary ⋅ 🌬 2 °C

    A bit late for Christmas but it all turned white last weekend, as it should be in January in a proper central european country. Slippery as hell here on our hilly streets, but as the freeze bit for the whole week, the snow remained long enough for the sledgers to hit the slopes on the weekend.

    Happy new year!

    December 31, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    New year's eve at home- with the girls and friends - Ádi and his Indonesian girlfriend Felicia, and Luki. The girls were allowed to party till they drop (Emma at half past eight, Nóra at ten) and enjoyed the company of the grown-ups, the kids champagne and glimpses of firework practice shots in the Buda hills. The friends were supposed to leave around 11 pm to watch fireworks in the city, yet somehow the food and the chat held us all here together until there was no point of leaving. Luki was the last one to leave, at 4 am, of which Emma took no notice, waking up at 8 sharp in the morning. Nothing we can't solve taking turns sleeping, despite our advanced age- Happy New Year, everyone!Read more

    Once a year type of thing

    December 30, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Despite our best efforts, somehow we managed to wait a full year since we last met with Dina, Jancsi and Julcsi and Anna. They moved house, opened a patisserie next to their pizza restaurant, and have a company to run as well as raise two girls- not surprising really.
    Better seldom than never, still- it was nice to catch up and we look forward to cheering for Dina while she competes for representing Hungary in Eurovision this year!Read more

    Joyeux Noël!

    December 29, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ 🌬 8 °C

    Bálint and Rita showed up at our door as they plan to move in- with bags and boxes, containing French goodies. Apart from filling our pantry with all stuff French (smelly cheeses, jams, pates, beers, and biscuits of all kinds and sorts), they also brought the girls a dream dollhouse, looking quite similar to Bálint's chateaux in France. An evening full of excitement, with the house to be assembled, Bálint papa to be beaten in a game of Grabolo, Rita to read books at bedtime before it all calmed down for the grownups to have a glass or two of wine.
    Merci beaucoup -it is a shame we meet so rarely.

    Family and food, and food, and food

    December 26, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ 🌬 5 °C

    So, Christmas day at ours -eggnog, pulled pork burgers with coleslaw and chips, followed by tiramisu. Followed by half of the crowd (Laci, Dani and Panni) lulled to sleep on our couch by Gergő playing the piano.

    Boxing day- lunch at Éva's for all of us again, with 4 types of meat, fish, 8 side dishes and 11 cakes and bakes.

    Hungry, anyone?

    Christmas eve

    December 24, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ 🌬 7 °C

    Merry Christmas! Our tree at home and the presents underneath it still appear as a surprise while the girls nap in the afternoon. As it happens, this was the sunniest afternoon this winter so far, and it took some time till the sun set and showed the tree in its full beauty. Presents opened and enjoyed a bit, we set off to Dói and co, as usual on the 24th, to open more (oh, so many more...) presents, enjoy food, and everyone's company. Merry Christmas, everyone!Read more

    The Nutcracker

    December 21, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ 🌫 -1 °C

    As a present from Éva-mama, we (Nóra, us and mama) ventured to see the Nutcracker ballet at the Erkel theatre (The Hungarian Opera house is still being renovated). The performance was colorful and breathtaking, and Nóra was stunned by "how fast they change the stage deco between sets". Absolutely beautiful- I am looking forward to repeating this again next year, perhaps also with Emma, who was still too little for it this year.Read more

    Emma is 3!!!

    December 17, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ 🌫 -3 °C

    Emma is three years old- Happy birthday, our Emster! The day started with presents from us (a three-way soft animal, a book, and a music box with dancing kisvakond and rabbit from Nóra). A carrot muffins celebration at the nursery was followed by a party at home- family, and of course, Merci, an absolute must!Read more
