Last Friday my mom came to visit me in Tallinn. It’s now our tradition- she comes in the beginning of December to me. So this time it was straight 1st of December. Luckily, I had no French this time and we could reunite with my mommy right in the morning. I met her at 10.30 am and we immediately started talking, hugging and many other things too. We missed each other so much.
Again, by tradition we baked ginger cookies listening to Christmas songs while outside it was heavily snowing but because it was wet snow, it was not very nice outside. Later we went to the city to walk, take some photos and explore new places we haven’t visited. When it got a bit darker, found a cozy café in the Old Town where we’ve not been and went there to warm up and drink lattes. It was so nice, sipping delicious coffee, talking to a favorite person and watching how it’s slowly but surely getting darker, and snowing outside.
We came home around 4pm. Of course, we lighted candles, lights and turned on one of the Christmas movies from our list. It was followed by hot tea with ginger cookies, persimmons and tangerines. Later on a thriller with homemade popcorn and tea with honey and lemon. Before going to bed, we talked, discussed some things and just relaxed.
I’ll be honest and say that I got a bit emotional when mom went to sleep and I stayed in my room. Suddenly, I got scared, felt lonely, even though mom was right behind the door in another room. But I was just worried about the school-how much I have to do, about my exams and grades, also about being lonely, etc...So I went to my mom and cried to her for a while lying on her shoulder and hugging her. After that, I calmed for a bit but couldn’t sleep right away. Some time needed to fully relax and calm my mind, but luckily after awhile I managed to do this and felt asleep.
On Saturday morning we decided to go early to a café to have a little breakfast in a café. It was good to wake up early while it was dark, almost no one on the streets, only lights and silence. Even though I would sleep much more instead of waking up so early, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to spend more time with mom. Then, at 13pm she left home. : ((
3 weeks, and I’ll be home. I just need to be patient.
