A small victory

I haven`t gotten around to this one, because there is just too little time for writing. I can barely manage to keep up with one post a day. The first day of my friend Damjan`s visit (you can read it in Vino – a family visit) we went to a pub I have been meaning […]

A Story / Zgodba

Lately I have been noticing that the kids like and understand stories more than they used to. As I am a big fan of stories myself I told them a story about a hobbit (yeah, ok I stole the story, but they do not know that). But this was not just an ordinary telling, we […]
