I'm back !!!

I wanted to post on sunday but was too tired to do it ... Our trip was great but exhausting ....

I wanted to post yesterday but my landlord was here to change the living room french window. I don't really like this man because he curses a lot and always has something to say (negative, of course). I covered all my furniture and spent most of my morning in my bedroom. In the afternoon, I left to go to my parents' house because I couldn't stand to be stuck all afternoon long ...

When the landlord feft for lunch, he asked: " is there going to be someone in the afternoon? " No, of course, we love having a huge open hole in our living room ... We even think about sleeping in there to have that fresh smell of nature ... After school, I went with the kids to my mom's house to do their homeworks. We were able to come back at 7.00 pm ( which made his friend and him leave - could have stayed more ...) He had put some stuffs on my covered sofa and he said " can I leave the shutters and the sticks on it? " Yeah, that's obvious that as soon as you leave we'll go right away to bed I hope you didn't think we actually HAVE a life ...

Today, they are going to come back at 10 am to make more mess ... Last night, I vaccumed and mopped. ( more cleaning is waiting for me as dust went everywhere ... ) I hope they are going to finish today as my wednesdays are always very busy !!!

Here is my sunday progress:



I started a small project to bring with me when I have to go somewhere. I'll show you tonight or tomorrow (depending on my landlord schedule )


The kids are going to be off school wednesday to sunday then they will go back to school monday and tuesday and will be off for another 6 days ... In France, may is full of holidays !!!


I also hope to have time to show you our Disneyland pictures !!! Right now, I'm going to cover my furniture in my living room ( we did sit on our sofa last night )

You have made amazing progress on your stitching.

Sorry about your landlord. That sounds like a massive pain but cross fingers it is worthwhile in the end.
