So, my birthday was yesterday and in spite of the fact that I had to work -and Tuesday is one of my busiest days- the truth is that it was quite a fun and exciting day.

I received greetings from loads of people that I didn’t know they would remember my birthday, for example, some school and University mates, so I could know about their lives as well. I also received greetings from several online friends, and I appreciate that a lot =). I even received an sms from the girlfriend of a girl (yes, I wanted to write that) that reads my Spanish sort-of-blog; I wasn’t too sure about how to react, but as it was a really nice greeting, I liked it a lot. Anyway, I hope she is not too jealous about me or anything…

My first class was at 8 a.m so that made the day quite a long one. I gave sweets to all my students, and the last group of the evening (absolute begginers) sang the Polish Happy Birthday to me -pretty interesting, by the way: it’s not with the usual international tune, but with another one- and that was really thrilling.

After my classes I went to J.’s house where her parents and sisters had organised a mini-party for me, with presents cakes and everything. One of J.’s brothers even phoned me while we were there to apologise for not attending the party. Then we watched for a while the Barecelona-Milan football game, but as I prefer to watch Real Madrid or Deportivo games, I got a bit bored of that, so I went to play with Kasia and we invented some odd names for Figa (Figa is a dog, Kasia is a 14 year-old girl :)).

When we got back home J. gave me her present for me: as I like air fresheners and toys, she bought me a little teddy bear which is also an air freshener. Then, as I was rather tired, I went to bed; but in comparison with Spain, the hour at which everybody goes to bed here is really early, so as I received even more sms greeting me, I couldn’t get to sleep till midnight :tongue:.

And no, I haven’t seen or read the news since Monday… I didn’t want to spoil the fun…

And well, this is all so far.
I have some funny anecdotes of the last few days, such as the lecture J. gave at the University of Lódz about Tuwim, but I don’t have much time to write everything in here. I guess I just have to keep it into my memory…

Hope you are all doing well.
More ramblings soons, I guess ;).
