The last morning sky of the year.





 Hello Friends 


This is the last morning sky of the year and when I woke up I saw this beautiful sky! Is this a good  omen for the coming year? I hope so.

Tonighwe will be the two of us, because we don’t want to gather due to the constant growing of the virus.

Today, we are obliged to wear masks outside again.

Ihope this year will be the good one and that we get rid of the virus.

So, I wish you A Better New Year!

A bad weather, but a nice day.

















 Hello Friends,


Today, was the last day with my son, before he goes back to his home in Dubai tomorrow.
We enjoyed our day out to a town called «  Falaise »
Here is Guillaume the conqueror ‘s castle.
In the asthme an exhibition about Alice in wonderland took place. For children during the Xmas holidays.
Then we went to visit a museum about the life of civilians during the Second World War, as the town was nearly totally destroyed by the bombing.

There was a film of this time and we could hear the bombs and the planes as if we were there.
It was so loud and we could feel the vibrations it was very impressive!

Then we went to an automaton museum
These articulated figures are from the 50’s and comes from the Christmas shop windows from Paris big shops.



This is the town hall and the museum of civilians during the war.
We had a very busy and interesting day two hours from home in the department de l’Orne.

A Beautiful time!

Hello Friends,

I hope you had a nice time with your family?

We had a lovely time together on Christmas Eve, but today we are all tired.


We opened lots of presents and some of us are using them today! My son is doing his Star Wars virtual game , others are reading their books and I am relaxing in my chair after having cooking all the meals!

The snow was 10 years ago on Xmas day!

It was so nice! But today, it is very grey and wet.
 



I took this picture in Japan representing the family
Xmas presents everywhere
Life in the house again
Christmas bread for breakfast 
And the usual Panettone 
Playing Yam.
I had a beautiful present! A book full of Japanese bird prints.



I am on my blog while everybody is playing.
We will have evening together and there are three days left in France for my son. I had time to give my son’s wife the baby clothes he wore at his birth for my coming grandson. Look
Have a nice Sunday

Winter wedding Anniversary.


Christmas decorations in Paris shops!

 Hello Friends!

Yesterday this is how we had lunch! With our coat and scarves! It was freezing outside and today it is colder!

My son and his wife have left yesterday and went to his sister. Today, the four of them are going to Paris for two days.

The  windows and doors should be installed tonight, except the front door that should arrive in January.

I will have to hurry tomorrow to do my last shopping and cooking. I can’t use the kitchen today.

I am a bit stressed before Xmas! 

It was our 38 th wedding anniversary on the 17th of December and I found a present for Mr L.vintage car toy and vintage items under a cloche with light.

The new door in one bedroom all glass so I can see the landscape and the sheep’s next door.

I hope you ‘ll have a Merry Christmas with all your loved ones! MERRY CHRISTMAS !






My son brought me these magazines from Dubai and I found shelter in my bedroom with Bandit to feel a bit warmer and to read my magazines.
