It’s with very, very, very much excitement that I welcome S squared back to Barcelona and at the same time, welcome Jordi (George, my brother) and Constancia (Callie, my sister-in-law) here as well! They are just about to start the million hour journey to this neck of the woods and though the trip will be long, I will be waiting for them with bells on first thing tomorrow!
When Steve, aka my dad and also known to me as Esteve (his Catalan name), told me he was coming again, I was thrilled. I was the first to break the news to Suzy, aka my mom and also known to me as Susana (her Spanish name) and the conversation went something like this:
Hoolia: Mom, I have great news!
Susana: Oh, tell me, tell me…
Hoolia: You are coming to Barcelona again!
Susana: We are?!
She isn’t much of a traveler, as her reaction might have given away, but now that the trip is closer, I think she is more excited, or so I hope. And to add icing on the cake, my brother and his wife are joining my parents and I will see them for the first time in almost a year! And, the cherry on top of the icing is that we have tickets to Barca’s first championship game of the season and Messi my love will be playing! Ok, ok, tranquilizate, I know.
It’s one thing to talk on email or even on Skype, but nothing replaces being together, live and in person, with your family. They will only be here for a short six days, but we’ll make the most of it, without a doubt, and enjoy being together. Aww, doesn’t that make your heart melt?
I wish them all a pleasant and safe journey in the friendly skies. See you soon!!
PS: THB will take another short break until my fam leaves, but the next post will be making a big announcement. Stay tuned!
