Thoughts of a wandering mind...

There i was trying to evaluate my beloved's English level and had asked him to tell him a bit about himself....

Halil: I was working at the İstanbul University for 9 years. Later, i started working at Fatih University.

Simah: Why did you change your job place?

Halil: Well, you see, i have a wife who likes to spend and spend my money. My salary was not enough. So i had to start working in a private sector so that i can earn more money.

Simah: Is that money enough for your wife to spend?

Halil: Well, enough to keep her quiet!!

hahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha... naughty naughty tem!!! Yup... from this it can be concluded that his English is well enough! hahahaha

Oh was with that money he earned that i ordered *Heidi* from It reached our place more than a week ago. It was nearing their bedtime. But the kids begged me to let them watch it a bit. They won...There they were..both.. awed by the magnificent view of the mountain in the film... saddened by the emotional side of the story... tears rolling down their cheeks (a perfect movie for meşe to watch hehehehe)... and loving every minute of it... They begged me to keep on watching the movie... naturally, i said no as the movie's length is 3 hours!

But that morning... while eating their breakfast, instead of their usual CBBC channel.. i turned on the movie from where we stopped the nite before.... and when it was time to go to school (tears still rolling their eyes while they ate breakfast).... still wanting to watch the movie..and while waiting for their cousin keremcan to come out of his home... they both....

watched the movie from the door!! hahahahaahahahahahaha
Yes..i may be a money spender..I can say that in this case.. it was money well spent indeed!! hahahahahahaha

How r the kids? Well.. they are ok i suppose... living their lives as best as they could...

Last monday, for the first time i drove to the lecture on my own. My beloved decided to babysit the kids instead since the last 3 mondays... we had seen a certain emotional trauma in the kids coz both my beloved and i were not around. I was scared to the bone that monday... if you could have seen the way to that place...scary indeed... anyway.. my beloved and the kids enjoyed themselves tremendously (i told their teachers not to expect the kids to do their homework every mondays)...yes.. freedom from the stern anne for one nite...relaxed baba taking from now on... it is simply their baba and hatice and baddin alone spending quality time i am jelous!!
hatice n baddin concentrating on their homework...

The weather is colder nowadays... the prawn season is here for a while ..and i.. being the only eater of this insect of the sea...this is basically my most basic simple menu esp every thursdays......
yup... speghetti with loads of chilli n salad to accompany the dish...i mss eating crabs.. i wish they have crabs in turkey...well..i guess i will have to wait for another malaysia trip eh?

The thing is... recently.. i keep on thinking...
All these while... i am plagued with a weight problem...though i do not feel inferior anymore despite my weight... i do wish to tone down a bit for health sake. Remember my weight challenge last year? where i walked every weekday mornings to Çamlık Park? It went so well that i was 62kg from my 69kg... Then baba got sick and died... stress and depression made me eat again... and with that...the addition of more kilos..and Malaysia trip was.... well... nobody expected me to try to lose weight there, eh??
After Malaysia... i tried again to lose weight....I bought myself Mr. celebrate how i managed to survive this interesting marriage with flying colours...
Yup... i started to lose weight again slowly as i cycled from bostancı - fenerbahce -bostanci...i was starting to be fit again...Yet..i was tested once haticem got sick and had to be admitted into an emergency surgery... again..stress and depression made me eat more and more...Along the weight i gained... subconsciously i was blaming fate for the extra meat... i was beginning to think that Allah does not want me to lose weight... i was starting to think that..well.. maybe i am better being fat as i am....

But wait! That is what the syaitan (devil) wants me to think. This is not the truth.... All the good things are from Allah and the lacking of things are from us human ourselves. It is wrong to blame fate... definitely it is wrong to blame Allah...May Allah forgive me...I think it is always a part of human nature to want to blame something or someone else when something bad happens eh?

The thing is... if there is the will then there will always be the way... I grumbled that because hatice was staying at home i couldnt cycle my Mr. Hunter.. but the truth is... i also have an indoor bike.. it is definitely not as interesting as Mr. Hunter...... definitely not with a great view as the great breeze welcoming if carressing me like a lover.... the waves slowly dashing itself to shore as if wanting to hug me.... or that smile from fellow the indoor cycle will never be able to compare... but that is also a tool to get fit.. and to grumble and be unthankful.. that is not the way to go.. ma'am.. that is not the way to go about it...There is no use to complain as well that i can cycle the maximum of only 2 mornings a week...I should be thankful for that chance... and now... whenever i do cycle... it is now ..a walk to baba (20 mins)... cycling to sahilyolu-bostancı-fenerbahce-bostancı- fenerbahçe. (24 km cycling)... another walk to my place (20 mins).. and since i normally walk along bağdat caddesi as well.. (1 hour) on days i get to cycle... even that 2 days.. i should be thankful... well.. the ndoor cycling.. i do get bored far too easily cycling it.. even if i do cycle half an is still something... dont u think??

So all in all...*simah...stop complaining!!!* hahahahaha
Thank You for hopping by. Hope to see you again soon... :0)

ur conversation with halil reminds me of my chat with the lil one. "dont worry abt me. The nanny can take care of me. U just work hard so that we have lots of money." *lol*

Best jawapan your darling tu, bestnya boleh spend more money lepas ni ...hehehehe.

Musim udang , sama macam pantai tmur, musim tengkujuh adalah musim udang, harga murah sikit dari biasa, ketam kat sini pun jarang makan sebab jarang ada , tak pe nanti balik kampung boleh makan ketam .

Take care , drive carefully !!

I love yr Mr. Hunter. Cycling is great exercise. I just started cycling again last week after a long break from puasa and raya time. Need to sweat to get fit. If not termengah-mengah climbing stairs at office.

Heidi sound like a nice movie?

Hey you! I've missed your mumblings. Hope everything will be back to 'normal' soon so you'll have time to blog regularly. Banyak activities eh ... Mana nak cycle, mana nak get on the exercise programme, kids' school and activities, eating, teaching, socialising ... And of course, shopping with the extra income you now get! Hehehe what a life. Seronok, seronok.

Heidi is beautiful, a classic... I remember my mother buying me the hardcover book when I was about 9 but I was already 12 when I could finally read it. Apparently my level of English wasn't the same as my mother when she was my age:)
