Fresh pile

Ohhh the lovely feeling of a fresh new pile of fabrics.... I used to visit my favourite fabric shop about 3 times a year but with looking full time after Lilly the visits have been rare. I manage once a year. So imagine what an event it is for me (!). With Maxime agreeing to play hide and seek in the shop with her (!!), I got a bit of time to myself to browse and make my choice.

Voila, plus de maman... Pourtant nos relations n'etaient pas faciles, surtout depuis que la maladie ait eu l'emprise sur elle, moi qui voulait la proteger d'elle meme et elle qui voulait a tout prix rester independante... Au revoir. That's it, no more mother.... Our relation wasn't easy, especially since the illness had taken hold of her, me trying to protect her from herself and her fighting to stay independant... Goodbye. il y a 6 ans/ 6 years ago
