My daughter has recently had birthday (14).
Her brother (10) greets her with a birthday letter this morning:
‘Dear Noemi,
You are my favourite sister. You are kind, can sing beautifully, so don’t believe what everybody says that you are a slow snail.
Love, Walter’
He does know how to make compliments.


The teachers of our children really do their best to wrap even worse news into a more positive context in each school report.
Excerpt from my daughter’s last school report in primarily school:
‘Noëmi, Theatre and Drama lesson is really your strength!
..All you need to do is pay attention when it finishes and when the maths lesson starts..’


A few days ago, after finding solution to a problem, I received the below feedback from a nice colleague working abroad:

‘…Piros, you are a SAINT – someone we can always turn to at the HQ!’

I am still trying to figure out how exactly being a saint can be matched up with my KPIs for 2019.
