My husband and I spent two nights in the "big city". It was a weekend with the company he's working for but we were basically free to do whatever we wanted. So we enjoyed the beach of Tel Aviv, the markets and shops and just some time without the girls.
I found two very nice shops with wonderful furniture and stuff for the house... Now I only need to win in the lottery and also move to a bigger place ;o)
One shop is called "Nedunya"- situated on Ben Yehuda Street (french country kitchen supply- antiques) and the other one is called "Gavriel" in the Neve Zedek neighborhood (new things but with a vintage flair to it).
Tel Aviv is a great city...
When we came home yesterday at lunch time we worked in our garden. We got last year a big pool (2.40m diameter!) and our garden is not really even. So this summer we want a place that is even- otherwise the water in the pool is always deeper on one side. We started to put big stones and level out the ground in one place. The girls loved to help digging and playing with the dirt. My husband hung a tire on the tree for the girls to play with. Next weekend we will have to work some more in the garden.
