Today, we are tired because we finished the makeover of the closet, before our daughter.s Birthday lunch tomorow. We have not seen her since Xmas because of the virus.
She works in the hospital and they have not been vaccinated yet and my husband is a general practitioner
So we live constantly with the virus around us. You never know what is going to happen, but we want to see her for this special day. We will be careful as usual and will try to enjoy this day.
My son who lives in Dubai had Covid cases in his firm. Here they have 4000 cases everyday, in a small country. So, we have to carry on « blogging » and take good care of each other.
Hope you are all having a good Sunday.

Today, let me show you these two pictures I found in a « vide grenier » if I translate Empty Attic or Garage sale. They date back to 1934 date of the child first communion equivalent to the confirmation in certain countries. It’s a Catholic ancien first communion.
The child received this picture proving he had been baptised and accept the fact he renew his wish to be a Catholic.
At this time, the parents framed it and it was hang in the home besides the parents wedding photo most of the time.
I love these pictures, because they are old part of the memories, they are not valuable for some people, but valuable to me.
Yesterday, was a beautiful sunny day 16C and I could go in the garden. I could see the horses next door sun bathing!the birds are busy nesting , it’s the coming of Spring!
For her Birthday, let me show you how is now the little girl on the picture I ‘ve shown you yesterday.
Once a year, brother and sister goes on a trip together. Now we have four of them as they both got married and all birthdays in February and March.
On this special day I want to wish my daughter Maud a very Happy Birthday!

Tomorow, this little girl will be 36 years old. Time flies!
Last year in September, I had a big surgery on the spinal cord ( a Schwannome) A benign tumor, but it was on the nerves of the spinal cord and compressing the nerves, so I suffered a lot and start to be paralyzed.
If I did the surgery I could be paralyzed or have brain damages. I decided to give my trust to the surgeon.
I choose a woman we talked together and I told her, I gave her my trust and she decided to do the surgery on 11th of September.
I had to stay 3 days in my hospital bed without moving my body and my head to protect my brain.
It was the hardest days in my life despite the fact they had to cut three vertebras to get to the spinal cord.
This little girl I had looked after, then have looked after me.
As she works in this hospital, she came every morning, lunch time and evening to look after me.
She put some relaxing music , give me a massage on the legs and it was a real pain relief for me.
Now I am home, from September to December I could not go out, it will take one year to recover.
But I can walk again, thanks to my surgeon and thanks to God.
We don’ t have Thanksgiving Day here, but on that day I thanked my daughter for her help and support.
And tomorow i will wish her a « Very Happy Birthday »
