So many things had happened that I even forgot to talk about mother's day at BZ's school. It was simple yet there are a few additional things. The kids who are learning to play a musical instrument had short performances. BZ played the piano accompanying a classmate who was playing on the recorder. Also one of her classmates played the guitar - I think one of the few times I saw a guitar for small hands; it was cute.
Well, I'm off to finish my housework and later get ready for meet up with friends.

Compared to my years as a SAHM, I appreciate the extra business in my life. Weekdays - work and Hungarian classes. Weekends - I spend time with family, go out with Mr. H for a movie or a drink, or go with colleagues to check out the night life or enjoy the great disco dance floor at Morrisons. :)
It is indeed a total different experience from the time I was at the kindergarten too. Meeting with more people, you learn a whole lot more as well. It took a bit of time to get use to, but I am enjoying it.

Entered the 4th week of work. :) I am grateful. It took a while to get used to but some people told me I adapted pretty well and quickly. This is nothing compared to what I had to go through to get used to living in a foreign land.
Here is what I see as I look out the window every day. Not the best view, but the river compensates it somewhat. :)

It's after 11 pm and I am still up! When I'm supposed to be asleep, resting for the first day at a new workplace tomorrow. Since I'm still up just wanted to blog about my weekend. :)
Yesterday I was out since morning with Bonnie and a friend; shopping and later ended up visiting my mom in law since we were just around her area. Stayed and played a board game for an hour or a bit more, then we took an hour's bus ride home. To just go straight for 1 1/2 hours of ice skating - which by the way, yes..... I did learn to skate. I learnt by myself in a week. :D And still learning and practicing new moves till the season ends. So that was how my day ended yesterday. Today , I was up early, washed, cleaned, ironed clothes, went to the sauna and swam for three hours, went to my mom in law's place. By the end of the day I was beat.
I am just so excited for tomorrow now. New place, new people, new way of life. :)
Hopefully soon I'll be posting about my first week at work.

Well, muffin died. :'( Because we didn't know that he was sick and 2 vets told us the same that prey animals like rabbits don't show symptoms until it is too late. But then we got another one called Kiki. Same colour, same type. Not muffin of course but he is as sweet. :) We had to go through difficult times with him as well, and was even hospitalized for a few days since he wasn't eating. But now he is a 4 month old big bunny. Now that the weather is warmer, BZ takes him out for walks even on a leash. Lop eared bunnies are like a cross between a dog and a cat really. :D
My Hungarian class ends today. I did a written test day before yesterday and today is the oral exam. For me oral ones are usually more nerve wrecking. :) But I think I will be fine. :) One sentence at a time. That's my motto. Only thing I hope I remember that when I sit in front of the teachers. It was a good experience all together. Gained new friends, went to the theater last weekend with them, and today I'm going to make some finger food for the farewell party. Looking forward to the next level.
Another new thing is that I got a new job. And I'll be starting in March.Since next week is the skibreak, tomorrow is my last day of work. I'm off just because I'm using up my days off. I am really excited and nervous at the same time. Downside about office work is that I won't be having too many breaks and I'll miss all the cuteness, while the upside is that I am not responsible for the little children and here only for myself and other adults. Well that is it for now. See ya on the next post!

Or rather the muffin boy. :) Daddy decided to drive us to the outskirt of Budapest to see a hobby rabbit breeder that he contacted in the morning.
BZ initially wanted a Holland dwarf. However, I suggested a Holland flop eared as they are calmer type - which suits me better as I am a bit afraid of skittish, jumpy animals. So out of two flop eared we saw, we agreed unanimously to get the 6 weeks old, caramel coloured one who we now call "muffin".
He is so adorable! ! :)

We've agreed to get BZ a bunny. After hours reading about how to care for a bunny and the types that she would like to have, and also write out a contract. :)
The contract mainly says that she would take care of the pet - clean the cage, wash it, cut the nails, play with it 1-2 hours a day and pay 15% of the Vet cost. If she missed 2 weeks, we are allowed to give the bunny away. I am to laminate the contract and will paste it up the wall in her room where she can see it every day.
I am not trying to be mean, but just wanted to instill the sense of responsibility. If she has to work and pay for it, she may feel the need to care for it more. Not that it would cost like a roland integra-7, so she can afford to pay from her pocket money. :)
