a taste of holidays

Voici enfin les images de ces petites vacances!To start with... a lil stay at my inlaws to do the switching off, filled with good food (must I still mention it?), with lots of relaxing times, & with a nice walk at la Cambuse... No need to say too, that Fly accompanied us for his first stay in another environment & behaved really well! (Proud parents here)

Vives les vacances!

I have been longing for this for so long.A break. Pause. Holidays. Disconnect. Reconnect. I feel so full of so much things now. Some trash I have to get rid of. Some stress to release. And some stuff like excitement, joy, hope, peace... some great expectations for life...I don't know what more to say.Actually I have loads to say. Loads of pix too. But too much time went by.So I'll take some time this week for myself. To do stuff I long for again. And to take no more stress. And hopefully to keep you updated. Our plan for... [Lire la suite]

Ayo

I thought I'd come by, just drop a lil note to explain my silence during the last weeks. Well reason is, I am now a Silent Partner too! I moved into the office with my desk, and my responsabilities. One of them is the keeping of accounts. Another one {probably more interesting than the first}is Ayo's concert. Ayo playing live in Mauritius on Friday the 7th of August at the Swami Vivekananda Centre. So for all of you who are around on that date "you'd better run run run run run for my soul..."for a ticket! {at the Habit's... [Lire la suite]

Une quiche pour patienter!

C'est un peu laissé a l'abandon ici, je viens donc poster une recette histoire de vous faire patienter...

This is the kind of recipe I make quite often; Depending on what I find in the fridge & cupboard, the crust & topping can vary. Here is one I tried for a picnic some time ago.... [Lire la suite]

My first cake' order, Happy Birthdays & trivial stuff...

No excuses. I have been pretty busy. And lazy too. A lot have happened in the last weeks. Events on which B. was working. That left me without a hubby for several days. Even on my birthday. {Darling thanks again for managing to spend the morning with me in the midst of this huge pre-prod!}. Our 3' year wedding anniversary. My 28th birthday {yep no hiding}. My grampa's B'day too {on which I started writing 2 weeks ago, but still haven't post it yet}. And then there's everything else that makes everyday life. Gardening. Baking... [Lire la suite]

For Mother's day

I just watched this movie Un Conte de Noel. I still have to let it sink in. A true French movie as I like them. Slow & brutal images of life. Exuberant characters & all a lil deranged. Still something so precious that is not put into words, but that you can catch a glimpse of all along. So I won't try to explain here. Will keep it for myself. Well mom I know it's late to post now about your visit a few weeks ago. But I have those photos I love. Plus those scrumptious muffins a la mandarine, chocolat & cardamome to... [Lire la suite]
