Life's a bitch!

Life is tiring at times... I'm losing one friend to cancer... she's in Rome and won't see her again
another friend is battling , chemo and such, in Finland... hope to see her next summer...
Oliver is not well... we're battling together...

I wish the sun would shine...

19 years!

My oldest son was born at 04:43 on the 23rd of January 1992... 19 years ago!

Happy birthday Luca !

        Chocolate cake and chocolate frosting, because he remains the same little boy as always! =)

When your vacation has passed worrying about your cat and trying to be there for all the kids coping with their feelings, and your family has gone back home and you had to stay behind because the cat cannot fly too soon after his operation, then arrives a friend from hundreds of kilometers with a train and cheers you up: Red wine, junkfood, internet, 'Sex In The City', wool and knitting... till the morning!
And she brings along lovely gifts too... and makes you forget your woes... thank you Mari, for existing! =)

                                               A beautiful box full of buttons!

                                  Two incredibly soft skeins of ecological wool in a perfect grey:

                                                  And three balls of yarn to try out:

Seeing this sort of thing makes me happy! Such a fun idea, to change a lamp's look for a period of time...

They call it vacation but it really was an ordeal and a roller-coaster of emotions... more on that later, but this is Oliver this morning... in the sunshine with the Mediterranean behind him... all I ask for is LOTS of happy days in the sunshine with my darling cat!
