With changing my job (again!) and spending most of my free time with Churchill I haven’t had time to go on a vacation during the summer. It wasn’t such a loss considering the summer wasn’t much of a summer but still I found myself missing the feel of the sand under my feet, the sound of the waves and the unique taste the beer has when you drink it on the beach. So we did two weekends on Black sea at two of my favorite places – Burgas and Varna. Tha thing is that I’ve spent most of my summers going to either or both of these cities and every time the experience is novel. And this year was no different. Going by car we managed to make some trips that were so worth it and reconfirmed my opinion that my mother land is one hidden gem. You can see for yourself…
Since I met Martin, one of my new favorite pastimes is to explore my hometown and the amazing street art that can be found at unexpected places. My most recent find was this tram tunnel. We went there last weekend and yet again I was impressed with the skill and imagination of both local and foreign artists. I love the colours, forms the fluidity it brings to the walls. I love how the artists transform dull sights to open air galleries. Most people think it’s vandalism, I think it’s pure awesomeness. So yet again, seeing the pieces, I was inspired and tempted to try making graffiti myself. But as the perfections I am, I think I’ll stick with the pen and paper for a little while and practice on different styles, letters and characters. So, expect to be bombarded with more street art as well as with my sketches.
I’ve always been a fan of grumpiness. Grumpy is my favorite dwarf from the Snow white fairy tale, Grumpy cat is my idol and House MD was my preferred show for a long time. So it’s no wonder that after I lost my dog 2 years ago, I wanted to get a brachycephalic puppy. And what is better than a grumpy, snoring and altogether cute English bulldog. Me and Martin had the idea of getting one for quite some time and we even had a name for him long before we were ready to become dog owners. As a matter of fact we both clearly remember strolling in London in March and passing by Winston Churchill’s statue. I thought Winston would be a great name for our future puppy, but Martin had the better idea of calling him Churchill. So three months ago we drove to a nearby city and got our bundle of joy. And since I’m back here on WordPress, I think it’s only fair to introduce him. Everybody, meet Churchill!
It’s been a long while..again..
I have to say that almost every day of this long pause I wanted to write something and I have many excuses that I did’t. But the truth is that no matter that I was super busy with work and other stuff, some of them not that pleasant, I just wasn’t sure if I should continue writing. I just stopped feeling confident in my posts and my blog. I know I’ve found many great people because of it but something snapped in me. And now, after weeks of Martin’s constant reminders of Manon’s Maze and after reading a great post by Antoinette about writer’s block at a blog I enjoy reading, which you can find here, I decided that it’s time. I decided I should stop over-thinking and just write when I feel like it. Because it makes me feel good. So, guys, I’m back and there are lots of things I’d love to share. I hope you’ll stay tuned.
