A White Morning!!!

It didn't snow in Wexford since 7 year as they told me, Wexford is known as the sunnest south , the sunnest part of ireland, when I say the sunnest it means the weather in summer is great for ireland which is mostly 20 c degree, any way it only snows on the mountains and in the north of Ireland but it's unsual to snow in Wexford!
Last week we had a great weather, on my day off I went to walk on the nice beach and the weather was so nice, around 14c, it felt to me so warm, I didn't feel that warm since 6 months, so I thought like I was in libya, and I had the courage to swim for one minute in the freazing water, I know it's crazy, but it's a habit I had in libya to swim in April as the weatehr gets nice and warm, but here in ireland was stupid to do so, I was just feeling young and free so I swam and it was really freazing, so I knew it's a false alarm and it's not summer yet.
Any way, I just mentioned all that to let you know that the weatehr was nice, but on Monday morning, I woke up to go to work, and I couldn't believe my eyes, it was all white, a lovely snow covering all the ground.
I was mad because I had to go to work, and I really wanted to fool around and enjoy the snow, I just had the chance to take few pics, and then I went to work, by mid day all the snow was melt.
And it didn't snow again, it was unexpected wonderful snowy morning, a white Wexford morning!!

Hiiiiiiiii again, I'm still alive!!!

Well, it seems that some people like my blog, or shall I say my short blog, I stopped bloggin since long time,although still was following the nice Libyan blogs, I admit I was lazy to stop blogging, but it’s not only that, my life changed much here, it’s completely a new life, it’s the life I was always dreaming of, but still, there is a huge empty space in my life, it’s my family, I miss them so much, it has been almost 8 months since I left them, it seems to me longer and shorter.
Longer as I miss them so much, can’t wait to meet them again, shorter because the time just flies, sometimes it’s scary how time just flies so fast, my life is based now on work, that’s the main part of my days, going to work in the morning, coming back in the evening, from one on call to the other on call and the week just ends and another week starts.
It’s scary because I have to study for my exams, my exam is on march next year, but with this speed of time, it will be soon.
Any way, hope I’ll prepare myself good for the exam and I can race time, at the moment my best friend(Benghazi citizen) is preparing for a very important exam, so I wish to him the best of luck, he deserves all the best.
I think I’ll stop here, I just wanted a start to refresh my blog, and thanks to all the bloggers who visit my b log and leave comments encouraging me to write, really I appreciate it.

I am sooooooooo happy, I became an uncle, my sis living abroad had a baby girl on the first day of eid, when I heard the news I almost cried, it's the first baby in my family, I imagined how my parents would be happy and delighted for that, I'm looking forword to see her, I'll go to visit my sister next april inshallah, so till that time I'll see her pics, my little sis is doing a great job by sending to all of us all her pics everyday, that's wonderful, she just looks like an angel, may allah bless and protect her.


last week I gave a statment to the gardai (Irish Police), don't worry, I didn't kill anybody!!, here is the story.
I was oncall on night, and they call me to intubate a lady with severe head injury, then I transfered her to dublin by ambulance because she had to do urgent brain operation, any way I can't tell much about that, you know: doctor patient confendiality, they only thing I can say that the story of her accedent was strange, and because of that the irish police were investigating, they called me around 4 days afetr the accedent, and they asked me to give my statment, they took it from all doctors were involved in the managment of this poor lady.
and as I was the anaesthetist who transferred her to dublin, they asked for my statment, it was a nice man who spoke to me, and he told me that he'll do that on the time and place that suit me, so I agreed to do it at home the other day as I wasn't working.
he came at the afternoon, he was a nice young man, and he wrote everything I said, I imagened that his job wasn't easy to write everything from all the docotrs, he told me that my english is good which make his job easier.
any way, I'm writing this story just to compare somthing backhome, before the police man was coming to my home to take my statment, I was afraid as I thought that I had to preapre all my papers and passport, so I made everything ready, but no, when he came, he was so friendly, and he didn't ask at all where I'm from niether he didn't ask any personal document to confirm my ID, I liked that, and I said if the same thing happened backhome, I would be in more trouble, and It would be more complicated and propably I would stay at the police station for long time before they release me!!!


I'm doing not bad in cooking, but I'm too moody, I mean I cook only when I'm in good mood and have time, otherwise which is ususally jsut do something quickly or buy some ready food.
the other day I invited few irish friends to my home for dinner, and I wondered what should I cook, then I said why not batata embatna, they love potatoes here, and I was sure they'll love it.
so I phoned to my mom, and my sis abroad to ask for help, they told me how to do it, my mom told me that I'm brave to do that for the first time and ivite people, so I decided to do a back up in case of failure, I did tajeen dajaj whith that, I learnt that from my father, he is so good in that.
It took around 4 hours to prepare everything then to cook it, I was doing not bad, when I finished it looked like real batata embatna, so I closed my eyes and I tasted it, and yessssssssssssssss, it was good.
I was happy, to cook something and invite people for is nice, especially when you are alone , and I was right, they liked it, everything, the batata and the tajeen, I was so happy for that.
since then I didn't cook much, just embakebka which i like and it remind me alot of home wtih it's spices and sauce!
I'll let the pics speak of themselves, and tell me what you think, shall I continue on my talent, ha ha!!

I bought a car a couple of weeks ago, it's a Toyota Yaris, made in 2000, it was a good deal, the owner, a doctor from Bahrain wanted to sell it just because she had to go back home quickly, so she didn't ask much money for it, so here it is my car parking infront of home everyday and I still can't drive it, just because I have to do the Irish driving exam first, it's on next saturday, I have to pass it to be able to do all the insurrance documents and to be able to drive, I'm so excited, can't wait to drive it and discover the place around with my car, it will make life much nicer for me!!

WHAT'S MY AGE ???????

Yesterday, the 25th was my birthday. I was on call at the hospital, so I didn't celebrate. The day before I felt sad, it's my first birthday away from home, I'll not have my mother cake, I'll not celebrate it with my family, and I was upset because I wasn't sure of my age, at that time I came so stupid to calculate my age. I was born in 1978, so I wasn't sure if it is 29 or 30!!!!
The morning of my birthday, I had SMS's from my parents congratulating my birthday. On the way to the hospital, I was still making the calculation, then I thought that I'm 30, that made me sad, it's a big number, no more 20 in my age, beside, I said to myself, if it's really 30 I have to do a big party, but I can't now, as I'm on call and my family are away.
I wanted badly to phone my mother to ask her my age, she must know it, she's the one who brought me to this life, but I had no credit in my mobile phone, so I said I'll call another day.
I don't know how they calculate the age, I did all the math, I finished my 29 year, but I'm not 29 any more, I'm starting my 30, so what we say, I'm 29 and one day, two days, three days...etc!
If there is a number between 29 and 30 that made it more easy, but there is no, any way, I passed my birthday at hospital doing my on call, I had to go to dublin by ambulance to transfer an ICU patient there, so I was busy all the day, I didn't sleep at all, when I came back from dublin I had work to do at hospital, so I stopped thinking of my age, and I wrote to my parents an email.
Today morning my dad phoned me, and he told me that I'm 29, I was sooooooooooooooo happy, like I gained a year in my life, and still I don't have to be afraid of the big number.
I know that sounds stupid, but I was really concerned of my age, I think when I was backhome I just ask my mom about my age and I trust her answer, so I didn't have to do any math , my Mother was my math.
But now, I'm alone, away from my family, I had to do all the math to calculate my age, but dad answered my question, could you please reassure me that it's truth, I'll let you do the math and I'll wait for your calculations, but please, not 30 make it 29 with every means possible!!!.
