Blast from the past






Alors, it's back to France again I'm afraid, I hope you don't mind! I forgot to mention that the house we stayed in is my mother-in-law's summer house and that the hubby spent his childhood summers there. On one of the days we were there we had torrential downpours and to pass the time he fished out books, toys and drawings from back in the day. The family would spend lots of time making things, something I never did as a kid... I think that's why I'm still not very good at working with my hands. Well, I'm going to make sure that spending hours making things as a family is something we in turn will do too :) Happy Friday!

  7. De där riddarna (konstigt i plural- heter det så?) är ju så fina. Jag tecknar men det är det. Jag lär mina barn virka nu vilket är komiskt eftersom jag är helt värdelös. Jag sitter med laptopen i ena knäet och barnet i det andra. Luftmaska..vänta lite så ska jag kolla instruktionen...Men det är det bästa. Och nästan roligast när alla är nybörjare.
    Vilket fantastiskt hus!

    wonderful horsemen!!! Its so important to be able to entertain yourself this way..as a child you make things for yourself and dont worry about other people's opinions..lost in the process of creativity. So hard to hold on to this as you grow up..self consciousness creeps in which hampers freedom of expression..
