Exaggerating is also not great to be honest. There has to be a balance. Like — one has to celebrate their achievements and be proud of them, but not letting one's pride consume one, it is important to move on. It is like with anything in life. One should not take their success for granted and remember there is tons of competition out there. It is important to stay cool. But of course — easier said than done.

She still looks like a little cutie. But yeah — I know what you mean, tell me about it. Sometimes I look at my oldest and he is 12 and a half, and I think — how can that be — it is like — only yesterday — I held him as a baby in the maternity hospital ward (it wasn't yesterday of course, but it doesn't seem like 12 years went by). With kids especially — time flies double fast. Week, by week — just zoom by and they grow right in front of you.

May be it is justified because she works mostly with teens. Teens can lose their heads so easily.

Yeah, maybe. But it is important to have those moments of pride as well and not diminish them, otherwise one might lose motivation. But — of course she knows what she is doing, who am I to judge.

I got to go now, have a nice evening.)

As long as you wear it, it goes. When you stop wearing it, it stops -well, most will keep ticking for 24 hours after, but then they will stop.

You of course didn't notice, but I made a mistake here  — not cause I don't know, but cause I was tired and typing fast and it came out wrong. Automatic watch is exactly that — self winding (that is exactly what I described), winding itself off one's hand movement, mechanical (also with a mechanism) — needs to be wound up manually.

Don't jinx it («не сглазь») I am joking. I don't believe in all that shit to be honest. We are a red haired family with a black cat, nobody can jinx us (my daughter says that, cause I say «touch wood» sometimes when I talk about something good happening in future — she says — you don't need to be superstitious, mom).

It is top notch of course, totally on point. Why are you asking? Don't you like it or something?

I like it a lot. That is the main reason I posted it here. But since you are a pro in ballet I'm interested in your opinion.

Btw, I'm glad to see that ballerina from Brazil (a country without strong ballet school and traditions) is doing so well.

They will have a very strong competitions in seniors next season. Probably the strongest competition ever. So many OGM caliber skaters will compete with each other next season… I'm excited about it but I'm also nervous about it too.

You know in 2017−2018 it was a cakewalk for Evgenia, she was head and shoulders above the rest. Now it will be a real bloodbath. I hope they won't push themselves too hard.

Grin (25771),

By the way, I am not so sure now Boris will win the race. You know, in the Tory Party — no one who was the first contender for the leadership since Churchill — has ever won it. I remember when everyone was sick and tired of 18 years of Blairite rule and people were yearning for a change and the Tories were having their leadership hustings, David Davis used to be by far the favourite, Cameron was an outsider, and in the end — Cameron won. Right now, there is a lot of smearing of Boris's campaign. First with his girlfriend — that row. This opened a can of worms. Because he left his wife for her, but prior to that — he had had multiple affairs, the last one with Carrie Symonds. Now they also dug out the fact that Carrie Symonds is a bitch and a nutter, and a volatile character, cause her previous boyfriends are selling nasty stories to tabloids about her — the likes of this https://expressdigest.com/carrie-symonds-former-...
So they are asking now — «Is it the kind of couple one wants to see in 10 Downing Street? They are crazy, etc.» Yesterday — a photo of Symonds and Boris was published — having a nice time





Now some papers are saying that this was staged to «save his image». He also had a bust up with a Governor of the Bank of England today saying that his warnings about economic troubles for the UK in case of Hard Brexit are bullshit. Which is what Rees Mogg is saying as well.

Well, anyway — his lead has dramatically narrowed now, and there is still another month left before the final result of the race.

People on LBC are phoning up and saying — that in fact, Boris 's row with his girlfriend is something all can relate to, we are all normal and in fact — people are fed up with «perfect» characters made by spin doctors (all that media spinning started with Blair) — cause after — it all turns out to be fake. And the fact that Boris is human is actually OK. But his lead in the Tory leadership contest has narrowed dramatically. It is the Tory grass roots who decide, so there is still hope. But it is not a given.

As for me most important thing is can he do his job properly. Can he deliver you a proper Brexit?
If I were a Brit I wouldn't give a flying duck about who his lass is and how happy or unhappy they are right now.

How on Earth do you know the word «lass»? It is purely Northern slang, Scotland and the very North of England. The Americans don't know it, but you do. Amazing.

But yeah, I know what you mean — all that matters is that he is probably the last hope for the Tories to deliver Brexit, he has more guts and personality than Hunt. But then again — all of them are from the same background and community — high class Oxbridge and Eton educated. Although — Boris has a slightly different biography. He was born in the States in an English family (that is why he's never picked up the dreadful American accent), had an American citizenship, but gave it up to become the Mayor of London, he'd had a double citizenship prior to that. He also has some Turkish blood in him I believe.
