I was over the New Year holidays with my family in Kavala, which is a port city in northern Greece by the Thracian Sea. It has about 50,000 inhabitants and you can find here cozy cafes, great shops, a beautiful beach and even a fortress.
We are sooo happy because we are away from everyday life and the only thing on my to do list is: Relaxing!!! This sweet girl is my niece, she lives with us since she was 4 years old and we raise her as our child.
Here we are on the way to the fortress, the road was quite steep and I was out of breath. That brought me another resolution for the new year: Losing weight and getting fit – “Just like last year?” “Just as every year, James!”
Before we left the city, we strolled once again through the harbor area and visited the beach.
Other things I made:
The Greek language is very extensive, here’s an example: In the Guinness Book of Records the Greek language is mentioned with 5 million words as the most verbose language in the world. The English language, however, has 490,000 words and 41,615 words come from the Greek language.
I took some old crochet projects out of the closet and found ... Well, you may know him? At some point I lost interest because it got too complicated, but now I wanted to take up the challenge again.
As soon as I’m finished I will post the pattern on my blog, I have to change here and there a few things, write down the pattern, crochet the jacket … so it could take a while.
Another project that I started last year, is the doll Emily. Emily is a dress up doll and you see her this year more often with different clothes. I am writing the pattern and crochet her again to make sure, that everything is fine. In my next post you will find the pattern, for sure! Promise!
And then, well then came the real life and sent me a job offer (help for socially vulnerable children and teenagers), and I simply could not refuse. This will take up a lot of time and I think it will be a little bit quieter on Amilovesgurumi over the next months. So don’t be surprised if everything works in slow motion, then my time flows in a good job!
