Sneeking back in …

I’m just going to slip this post in here as if nothing happened – maybe nobody will notice that I’ve been absent (once again!) for more than a month!!!

This is what my backyard looked like a week or so ago:

And this is what it looks like now:

Not much better but we’re getting there! Hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy all this by Springtime which is around September .

Last week was a horrible week! My handbag was stolen with (what felt like) my entire life inside it!!!!! Apart from the cash (which was quite substantial for me!), I lost: my wallet, cellphone (with all my contacts – I don’t have it backed up!), ID book, drivers license, all my bank cards + loyalty cards, glasses (this was the most expensive to replace), the book I was busy reading (The monk who sold his Ferrari), makeup + countless business cards with contacts that I will have a really hard time to get hold of again!

The very next day, just when I thought I had my share of bad luck, a guy came to my house to tell me that a car has hit Marco while he was driving his bicycle home from school. I almost had heart failure! By the grace of God the car hit his rear wheel and he only sustained minor injuries from falling from the bike. My first emotion was relief which turned into anger at the driver of the car but soon I realized that it won’t do anybody any good to be angry. Now I’m just soooooo grateful that my boy is ok.

This is what his bike looked like:

Winter is really creeping in now and however hard I worked to get at least one part of my garden growing , everything just seem to stagnate at this stage. Now I’m only trying to get everything covered up to protect it against the cold. I’m so looking forward to Spring this year – more so than ever before!

Our little fairy baby Leeloo was Christened in April.  She had a long fairy dress and we added wings but only for a quick photo shoot.  She looked soooooo cute!!!

I made this little card for her with a special message inside:

I haven’t been able to scrap a lot lately but I managed to finish a couple of  pages.  Here are 2 of them.  I'll take photos of the others and will post them next time.

Bye for now! :)
