Facing the sun!





 Hello friends,


The children went back to Dubai on Saturday.
At the moment we are facing many problems
I partly solved them before our holidays!
The car is still in the garage, it’s been two weeks now!
They are waiting for pieces to arrive… from where???
And many other problems!
Well this morning I went to the hairdresser and stop on my road to take these sun flowers pictures, I love them always facing the sun as an optimistic way to face life problems.
All our holidays are planned and I am impatient to leave !


Back home in the plane!

Happy Birthday 🎈!




 Today Maxime is four months and grandma baked a small heart fruit cake with Maxime candles that we will lit tonight! His mum will eat it and as she is feeding him he will get some of my Birthday cake in her milk!

We won’t see him for his first year, so this is why I decided to make a Birthday 🎂 cake



This is a fruit cake and I baked another one and I tasted some and it is quite good ( first time I make fruit cake with almond powder inside “Miam!”

I have a LOT to do and I hope I’ll be fit enough.

Grandpa ‘s new car broke down and  it is difficult to have it repaired on time.mine is American and grandad a European one (I will not give the brand but…he is not very pleased we could have had a very serious accident!)

But we will use mine to go on holidays fortunately!

Maxime discovering the 🌎 world !

Here is Me Maxime travelling with mum and dad to visit my grandma and grandpa for the first time.
I took the plane and travelled in my little bed for 7and a half hours, then 2 hours drive to my grandparents home.

 I was very calm and slept well during the flight
I discovered many new things especially in the forest behind the house. Never seen a tree and leaves moving in the wind the only trees I know are palm trees! 🌴 

My dad has left this morning with my aunt and uncle
To 🇮🇸 Iceland to see the volcano which is in activity these days. Just for the long weekend.

So I am staying with mum and my grandparents for the weekend it is very hot, but it should be 10 degrees less tomorrow and we should go for long walks and see the birds and trees.
See you soon.

A quick Hello!



At least our first meet! Nearly four months old.
Grandma has prepared everything to welcome the new member of our family!

 Just to say a quick Hello! And a nice 😃 smile!

A few surviving flowers! We have a water restriction 
And we will see those who can resist.

From time to time.
