Today we sorted our washing out for zoli's mum who has offered to do it for us (which is very generous of her due to the type of washing machine and spinner they have). The concept is very old fashion but the actual machine is only about 3 years old, we even offered to buy her a new one to make washing much more easier for her but she is used to the one she has and would rather use that.  I'm sure i told those who received emails from use from last time how their washing machine/spinner works - you have to fill up the machine by hand using a bucket of hot water into the washing machine, then when washing cycle has finished you then drain out dirty water, then add clean fresh water to rinse, then drain water out again, then place clothes into a separate machine which then spin dries the clothes.  then we headed off to the city and spent the day there.  we went for a wonder around some shops which were more ones in a shopping centre like at home, speciality shops like mathers shoes, kids clothes, sports shop, wwomens clothing shops, and a plus size womens clothes shop, wedding dress shop, newsagency and grocery store too.  Zoli brought Abby a pair of traditional denim overalls which are very cute, they are good because the top section which forms the overalls can be detatched and Abby can wear them just as jeans, they also have an adjustable waist like most of the pants we get in Australia.  He also brought her a pair of leather soft soled shoes (like slippers) one shoe had I love mum and the other i love dad on it and i brought Zoli a pen with his full name on it (only because we cant buy one in Aust.)   Then we went to McDonalds to try to use wireless internet but the girl said u need to buy a card and i wasnt sure how it worked so we then went to Szechenyi Square where we were told they have a hot spot but i was unable to connect my laptop there, so we decided to go back to Maccas and try and work out this card system only to be told that they dont have it anymore and that there's actually a hot spot there instaed thats free.  So we sit down and Jozi and Abby have their lunch while i try to connect to the internet.  After almost an hour of trying to work it out the manager came out with a technition on the phone to try and help us thru the set up which was involved in downloading some software so it would be combatible and be able to use the internet for free.  This was still unsuccessful as i have the program on my laptop but it wasnt recognise my registration for some reason.  It was all too confusing as ZOli was trying to get the info from the technition and intructions on the startup page which was all in hungarian then translate them to me because he's not that familiar with using the laptop and internet that much, so after many attpemts we gave up and went sight seeing instead.  We walked thru the city and checked out the open theatre program, they have CATS playing at the moment but it is in Hungarian so i might give it a miss.  We had an ice cream and went for a walk in the park where there was a small market, Abby had a jump on a jumping castle and then we brought her a small puzzle set.  Jozi and i then took ABby to the playground while Zoli went back to get the car and bring it down to the parking near the river.  Abby can now saying #1 and #3 in hungarian and trying to say #2.  She can also say nagyapu (which means grandpa in hungarian) very clearly too and she calls Zolis mum 'momma'.  Abby and i went for another play at the park and its very cute to watch her interacting with others and speak different languages.
