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 ;).

  1. Hey! It’s me! Just letting you know I’m still here. I miss chatting to you. I’ve started college now so not alot of time for other stuff (for example websites! 😥 ) I’m taking ICT, Graphic Design, Art and Phycology! I have been trying to update my site though. Hope you’re okay and everything! See you around? Bye bye xxx P.S what did you think of Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban (film) ???

  2. Hey Helen I’ve seen your new layout 8-). I love those dark layouts of yours that at the same time are so easy to read.
    I’ve loved POA, I thought I had already told you… I went three times to the cinema to see it :geeked:. I liked it not only because it was a HP film, but because I found it a really good and interesting film (I must recognise that the other two were a bit dissapointing for me as films). See you round there!

  3. You will have a parcel from me, once you come back home….both for your birthday and as a thank you for having sent me SCWP back in March.

    Will you kill me when I say that I’m a Milan fan? Of course, except for when they play with good ol’ Depor which is my favourite foreign sports team!:D

  4. Wow, hvala… You don’t have to, I told you, but thanks all the same o:) .

    And of course I won’t kill you for supporting Milan, specially when they beat Barça :mrgreen: (I’m a Real Madrid fan 😎 ) Depor has just been disqualified in the King’s Cup (Spanish Cup), and Pontevedra too, blah! :doh: :doh: At least Real Madrid is still alive in that competion 😐 .

  5. LOL…if my friend Jordi would know this, he’d think of you as a sinner. He’s a die-hard Barca fan, as all the Catalans.

    Oh yes…and B2 didn’t send me notifications of the comments at all.
