Surprise here I come

on February 1, 2014

So a while back Yaeli mentioned that for her birthday they are all going to a hotel in Tel Aviv for the weekend. Naturally the first thought that went through my head was that wow I live so close wouldn’t it be cool if I went? And then the planning began…

I first recruited Merav to be my alley and she proved to be quit useful:) First she kept me updated on the date of the weekend. Once that was set, I convinced Aba to help me by issuing my ticket which saved me some $$ which is always great. Once I had the tickets the fun began. Wouldn’t it be more fun if it was a surprise? Well yes it was fun:)

So I (and Merav and Aba and Ima and Inbar) all kept our mouth shut as conversations about the weekend went on over viber and boy was it fun! To make the weekend even better it turns out to be savta hava’s birthday so I got a family meal out of it too!

So after a fun long day at work where we had a four hour long meeting followed by me being nice to people I hoped on the train and made my way to Heathrow. After a nice four a flight where I felt like a sardine I made it to tel aviv. Through prior planning and five million emails it was decided that I would make it to the hotel by myself. It was entertaining but I made it! And then the fun of revealing the surprise began!

I won’t lie it’s heart warming at how happy everyone was to see me. After spending a lot of time with people that don’t me, or I should say aren’t lucky enough to know me yet, it was nice to be with family who love me for me and know me and I can be me. One of the best parts of living in London is that I can be so close to the fam. Granted I wish it wasn’t so much $$ to go see them but it’s really nice they are so close! I’m excited that I will get to see them more than once a year!

Anyhow, we spent Friday eating cookies, talking, sleeping, and looking at the beach. Perfect day!!

And then Friday night we all got together at rinats to celebrate savtas birthday and it was fun! It was awesome to see everyone! And the food was great, not for my diet, but great for my taste buds!

Shabbat was filled with more family time and more eating and more feeling loved:)

After that I headed over to spend time with Saba Israel and savta hava. I’m really glad that I got to spend sometime with them. It was then that I learned that earth shattering things happen and people don’t notice. You are probably scratching your head and wondering what happened. Well Saba and savta bought new plates!!!

Now to some this might seem trivial, but they have had the same pink plates since before I was born, still don’t understand what happened there.

Sadly Sunday was my last day BUT I got to have breakfast with Esti and Udi since they where in the neighborhood! It was a fun unplanned surprise. Then I sadly has to go back to London. I like it here buts it’s alway sad to say bye. No worries I’ll be back in three weeks since Udi has decided to throw a little party I’m invited to:D
