Anyone who lives in the UK will know, there has been a huge backlash against people from some other European countries coming to the UK to live and work. One of the nations receiving a lot of this backlash is the Romanians. Today, I had my first chat with a Romanian who had done just that – moved himself and his family here to the UK to get more work.
How do I know this? Well, because out of the tens of self-employed decorating contractors I called or emailed asking for them to come quote, these were the only guys who turned up on time and mostly, at all. These were the only guys who gave us a fair price for the job. These are the men who are, right now, re-plastering any areas of the walls that aren’t perfect before they begin painting – they didn’t even mention that when they quoted or ask if we wanted it doing. They have travelled almost an hour to do this job, they’ll do the same back again and repeat each day until the work is done.
It’s obvious that they are willing to work very hard for the money and they’re so pleasant. I got chatting with one and he told me that sometimes, people won’t hire them because of the fact they are Romanian. He said ‘People say… “Romanians do this and that, steal and cheat” and we are all different’. He’s right, of course, just like not everybody here is a racist or someone who reads the rubbish put out by much of the mainstream press.
Guys, give peas a chance and, if you want the job done, hire a Romanian 😀

Oh if you want to be adorable, you need to be getting along to Sanarae where they have the cutest stuff. American Bazaar’s dress is one such item and I felt like such a good girl in it (I’m sure you know what I mean). It’s cute, it’s sweet and it fits pretty good too. I had a slight break through with my AO on the neck area, but my AO is full of a lifetime of stands and as such some of them may be a bit old. I chose the navy as blue is my fave.
You can check out the video below to see if you can spot any breakthrough times, but I don’t think I did while dancing – or indeed standing still 😀
Here’s a few more pics, mostly at the lovely Baja Norte but with one ‘well lit, no shit’ shot too…
