Crocheting...

Hello Dear  Friends!
These days, I am crocheting everywhere ; but mainly in the car while waiting for my son play football
I wait for him an hour two times a week ; I realized I can crochet while waiting!
Football doesn't finish in the soccer-field. When we come home; he plays football in the street with neighbours' kids. So I sit on the veranda and crochet while watching him.
Have a lovely week!

Good morning Dear Friends,
I hope, you are having a lovely day.Today , I will share with you some crochet.
I finally finished the granny square blanket for my nephew.
I made a similar blanket for My Little Man,only this time instead of a fancy edging I did three rows of single crochet edging.The Little One used it for a couple of weeks before the heat wave hit  us.
This one is a work in progress...It is lacy and I feel so nostalgic while working on it.I wish I had more time to crochet this lovely.
I hope you have a wonderful week-end. I say good-bye with a selfie . Stay safe wherever you are....

a trip to London

Hello Dear Friends,
I hope you are all doing well in your part of the world.Last week-end we decided to have a long week-end and went to London.
We took a city tour on foot,and visited The Big Ben,
Buckingham Palace,
and Westminster Abbey.It was a very nice tour.After the tour, hubby took us to a pizza place.It was very nice too; unfortunately I do not remember the name.

We went to The Natural History Museum,
We went to the Butterfly Exhibition too
Such a spectacular exhibition! But my Little MAn got so scared of the butterflies landing on him; we were in and out with a blink of an eye :(


Two days in London is a very short but we enjoyed our stay immensely. I think we will be visiting again,soon!
Have a lovely week-end.

April 23 ; National Sovereignty and Children's Day

Hello Dear Friends,
April 23 is celebrated as National Sovereignty and Children's Day in Turkey and North Cyprus. There were celebrations all over the country and My Little Man's school put on a wonderful show.
The children sang and danced; they had lots of fun.
We celebrate Children's Day but Atat├╝rk gifted this day to World Children. So I am wishing Happy Children's Day to your children too...

WORK IN PROGRESS

Hello Dear Friends!
I am so excited to show you my new works in progress...
Nothing beats a classic granny, don't you think? I am not pleased with my colour choice though; but as I realized later, I picked the only available colours of that beautiful yarn; 80% acrylic and 20% wool combo.
This is my favourite work in progress at the moment; I just found the most gorgeous 100% cotton balls.
My elder son is on Easter break.He is currently studying law in London. So I took my boys for a lunch on Sunday.
I took them to Girne to a restaurant my sister recommended.The weather was beautiful until it started pouring...We moved inside but couldn't escape getting a bit wet.

My Little Man is so happy that his big brother is home. As for me, I am a bit disappointed as the big brother treats me with disrespect.But I say nothing. Being a step-mom is very tough.
I hope you have a lovely week!
Gaia.

First finishes of the year 2017

Hello Dear Friends!
It has been such a long time since I was here. Life has been very though on me these past months; I have been working like 2 persons  jobs; 11+ hours a day and 60+ hours a week.Working such long hours is inhuman.But everybody kept telling me ; since I am the boss, it doesn't matter working that much!Honestly I do not mind working that much; but try doing that when you have a 7 year old boy with ADHD.Our consulting psychiatrist advised us to use Ritalin but after too much consideration we have decided against it.I ended up spending more time with my Little Man and so far we are doing great. He actually started taking piano lessons and he hasn't quit yet after 3 months and he has made progress.
He plays football two times a week and he will start swimming again in April.We do all the homework together- usually 15 minutes homework takes us an hour to finish- we read books aloud to each other and this has encouraged him to read and he has made quite a progress on that department too.My studies are on hold I have only 2 credits to graduate but have no time;hopefully I will manage this semester. I had two burnouts in the meantime but had to recover quickly.And the great news is that I have managed to finish to of my works in progress...


I need to get back to work. Have a lovely week-end!
