Bank Holiday BBQ

I don't know if I've ever mentioned before, but our main desktop PC is hooked up to our TV in the lounge. Convenient as this is for downloading and watching films, it's not very conducive to writing a blog or even emails, if I'm honest. So I was looking around my house for somewhere I could create a little nook, and by jove I've found it. The fridge was originally in this little nook in the kitchen, but by moving it out of the nook and just next to it, and by Berat helpfully cutting our old computer desk down to the right size, I now have a little office nook! It's by no means finished - I want a shelf up high and I think I might paper the wall I'm facing, but it's a start and I'm very happy about it!

The other project we currently have on the go is a chair we found outside in the street, which someone had dumped. It's solid wood and very sturdy but has no cushions. We both fell in love at first sight and we're going to sand it, paint it (possibly white) and then make new cushions for it!

We had the family over for a BBQ today, it was lovely. I love to feed people and make them happy! My cousins taught me to play card games too, one of which was Cheat (Bullshit), which surprisingly I was no good at! We had a really fun day though, it was fab.

My poor little Onur is in the wars, though you wouldn't think it to look at him, he's such an amazing boy (I know, I'm biased) he hardly complains and he's just the best son anyone could ask for! He has a UTI plus an eye infection, so he's on both oral and topical antibiotics  and drops for his eyes. He also has a cold and a cough! I knew something was up when he went from being completely potty trained and having no accidents, to wetting himself three times a day and at night too. He's still having little accidents (in fact whilst writing this I've had to go and change him and all his bedsheets!) but I'm sure the antibiotics will kick in by tomorrow.

Kaya is, well, he's just Kaya. He's such a lovable monkey! He also has a cough and a cold, but does that slow him down? HELL no :)
He woke me up this morning calling for me -

Kaya: Mum mum!
Me: What?
Kaya: Lublub! (This is how he says the Turkish babytalk name for a willy!)
Me: What's wrong with bulluk (the actual word!)?
Kaya: Wet.

I love that he's able to explain himself so well at 18 months; he learns so much from Onur. He really wants to go to school with him, it's so cute. He take a little bag when we walk Onur to school, because Onur has his book bag, and when we get to the school he points into Onur's classroom :)

I really am very lucky at how quickly and easily Onur has settled into Nursery School! He  absolutely loves it and his teachers are always full of praise for him :)

Right, so I'm off to bed. I'm currently reading The Virgin's Lover by Philippa Gregory, as I love all this historical fiction, especially about the Tudors. In fact I've recently found out that underneath the Ministry of Defence building in Whitehall, is an INTACT ORIGINAL Henry VIII wine cellar that used to be in Whitehall Palace. I'm determined to see it one day, but I think they only accept group bookings.

Night all!

that is awesome. I want to visit that wine cellar now too. I've always wanted to go to Hever as well.

I love hearing about the boys, they sound like they're growing up so fast *puts hand over heart*

Yay, you has a nook!
