Sunday evening

I finished painting my bedroom wall. I should be feeling happy but I’m tired and a bit down. It’s cold and dark outside and it’s Sunday evening.

Yesterday, the weather in London was like this. So, while my mum was sewing a school apron for Mila, I got Mila’s rubber stamps out to keep her busy and to make some cool cards…Resultat des cacahouetes (can’t translate…would mean something like ‘total of peanuts’…see I told you… can’t translate)Mila’s time spent on making cards: 20 minMoi’s time spent on making cards: 2 hours (I wasn’t slow, I got hooked!) My mum: “Who do you send kisses to?“Moi: “ummm..to my customers“…ok maybe not, will keep these for the familyAnd then, I made smaller ones….
