It has been 5 years since I moved into this flat (Ljilja moved in 6 months later) and to mark the occasion we decided to get Ziki a cake! We also gave her a little money to spend on herself as she always complains she never has any money for herself- all of it goes on the bills and the house! She was overwhelmed by this small gesture and we were happy to have made her happy with something so easy to do!!Later, David, the Czech, came to dinner (yes, he is back and will be here working with EUS for at least two years!) He found a place to live this morning and so we took him shopping for stuff and he is "kuciti se" (homing himself) as they say here.
I managed to keep Ljilja off the last piece of pumpkin pie, and so he got to try it...We discovered it is a very international pie: Ljilja started off by saying "Bosnian pumpkins made into an American pie by a South African". I added "yes, with a recipe I got in Croatia". David, enjoying the pie, and taking his time to think about it... added "and it is all ending up in a Czech stomach"!!!!!
