I've got mail...again!!!

I received another beautiful package!!! Some real sheep wool... the natural kind that here in Italy I have never seen... the kind that smells of sheep! So I've been burying my nose in this since yesterday! Thank you...

Look at the lovely package my swap partner Pirjo sent me! (Finnish knitters group on Ravelry)

A comic book assembled by her, the best milk choclate in the world (Fazer), a finnish knitting magazine, a beautiful scarf made by her, and last but not least... Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend in a wonderful colourway! Thank you so much!

the hair is no more...

The first guy is the one I left at the hairdresser, the second is the one I picked up... the cave-man is happy, the guy is happy.... and I? I need to get used to him! =)

Just a few photos taken here and there in the little town I live in... maybe someone will feel like visiting one day... (helou MKL)... =)

I already have this one and I love it!

Now I ordered this smaller one for #4 who is 8 years old and really wanted one ever since mine arrived in the mail!

my first swim

If I were any better with this blogging, I'd be able to align the photos and give you a panorama-picture and all such stuff, but you can use your imagination...

This is just down the stairs from our home, perfect in June and September, but FULL in July and August! We'll enjoy it while we can and then we'll walk a little further...

UFO becoming FO

It's getting there....
finally! Child #2 is waiting very patiently...

On Friday, June 9th 1978 I saw my love for the first time. I was not yet fifteen, and he was about to be married. Eight years later I was older and he was separated and now we have four beautiful kids and he is still my love!

It started with some boxes,

and then it became a little girl's

room... almost!


     These are the boys beds and bookshelves... and mess! Still need tables and drawers!
