BELLA ITALY...



Hello Dear Friends!
This year we were so lucky, hubby took us to Italy for our summer holidays.We went to Rome and Florence.Sigh! Italy is a beautiful country!

                              My Little Man was very excited at the museums. We first visited The Vatican Museum.              

   
We went to the Trevi Fountain twice; once at night and once during daytime. Gosh! It was so crowded each time.There was hardly any space around it but My Litlle Man managed to throw his coins and make his wishes;I couldn't.
                                      
We walked a lot in The Vatican Museum. My Little MAn got very tired after some time but he never complained.
There were lots of tourists like us and most of them were American tourists. There were always long queues at the enterances of the museums but we booked our tickets online previously so we had no troubles at all.

After three days in Rome , we drove to Florence. The high-ways were very good.We paid around 100 Euros high-way fees going from Rome to Florence to Pisa to Cinque Terre and to Rome again.
In Florence we first went to academia and saw the impressing DAvid.My Little Man was so astonished; he kept asking me 'where is David's clothes?'.

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.
Gaia.

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 Atatürk 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.
