motivation and career....

So what do you do? Do you love what you do? Does this fulfil you? .... I had a choice, stick with same girls I went to school with and be in the mainly females and study languages (at that point I truly had enough!) or go away to Switzerland to do degree in hospitality. Guess which one I chose...


I was never encouraged to do things I wanted, nurtured... It is not the Russian way... I was to provide for my self as fast as I can and I did I loved my 1st placement for most of the time. I loved ladies I worked with, the customers. And they loved me back. But it was not to last. The hospitality industry is not an industry in UK. Even if you think about how much money is involved in it... Like entire Britain depends on it. Weatherspoons.... Wagamama... and many more.... But our waiters are students, people who don't care mainly.... but there are some that do and we need to appreciate a good service. I have been talking about this for a while now, some waiters are professionals so are the barmen, chefs and even hosts.... 


Appreciate the people who are serving you... Say thank you, smile... Or even give them bit of coin. Imagine that! 
At this very moment I am trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.... Something I should have known ages ago. 
I do truly admire people who know what they want to be and what they are. One of my girl friends is a born teacher, so she is teaches now. Another always had hard time in school with all the silly things they make us do but she always wanted to be a nurse. She had a long way but she is one now, well on maternity, but she's a nurse. 
I on the other hand am a mother.... and what else?... 
I could never pick one. I wanted to be an interpretor in the kinder garden, then it was anything arty. But that is not much profit in that. So that never happened. And then I just drifted into hospitality... My personality suits it, until I have enough. And I had enough.... 
or am I just blabbering? 
I need to set a goal and go for it. It is just hard and scary.... getting into unknown....
Wish me luck

Hard Work

Before I have said that mumming is super awesome but super hard work. Keeping the little man entertained ... But there are some things are here to help. Check these out! 




These bath light were given to me last Christmas and I totally forgot about them. Until few days ago. Egg loves looking at them playing with them. He gets these out puts them on the edge of the bath and watches them change colour. And this way he actually sits in the bath! Our health visitor said that it's a great sensory play!

Cardiff 10k

One of many things I was looking forward when we were moving back to Cardiff is the tons of races I could do. So back in January I have singed us both for Cardiff 10K that usually takes place around the 1st weekend of September. Yes I am that mad! 
Baby was looked after by Owen who was also the watering station for Steve. Never seen anyone drink that much while running the man is like a .... well camel when they do store water in their humps, it is like there will be no liquid ever again.... Funny. But I guess we are different.


This was my 3rd Cardiff 10K. 1st one I felt like I am going to die and 2nd one was good. Well this one was just great. However there was a lot of people running... Like a million! and the finishing like surface was... well so freaking lumpy it was hurting my feet. But over all I had a great race day!


We both were really pleased about extra special medals they made for 30th anniversary of the race. So cool! Edgar really liked these. Was running around with them... almost hitting him self in the head with, that it why he was releaved of these wonderful shiny objects. 


So as I said my race was good... finished in respectable 1hour and 46 seconds. Hubby however swore at the finish and did not have a good race. Well he was annoyed at the road, the route and the heat. 



And then I did another race the weekend after that... Stay tuned! 




Things

Things we found in Asda.... 
And these are pretty rad! ... Yes I have just said rad... I also cannot believe it....
And for a very reasonable price.... 


 See why I've used rad?! 
Everything I want... But also the much bigger place that we have in mind. ...
