Everyone is coming home at different times so we don’t always eat together. It depends on the day. If we can meet all together then we eat together. Every Sunday Iwona either with Antoni or with Mateusz visits her mother Alina 80 in an nursing home. Sometimes they stay there longer and in that case Sunday lunch is later. The family dinner could be a celebration when we have time, but when we are in a hurry it is just a way to comfort our hunger. A good meal depends on the heart of the cook, on products and on how much time we have. During our dinners we are talking because we are all together. Sometimes we invite friends and we stay around the table for hours. We would be glad to have all of our family around the table and talk for hours but for that we have to wait until the summer holidays when Marta the daughter of Antoni comes to Poland from California with her family.
