From the word Sabbath: rest on the Sabbath day, Sasha decided she deserved a well earned break from her life in Europe. She has been working so hard, in contract roles as well as running an Accountancy business and raising a fantastic child, all on her own.
She made sure her child got the best education available to them in their city. He participated in activities of interest to him like football, basketball, ice-hockey, cricket, roller skating, whilst Sasha found time between generating an income to sustain them both adequately, to enjoy her life. They both had a great time.

Why do people demonstrate more love and respect for their neighbours or pets than for their partners? …
