5.8.10







Good life.
He was not at all relaxed our first couple of days here, Hiro the cat.
Things have changed.

So, several of you have told me that life kind of starts at 40, sounds good and promising.
Thanks for your birthday wishes!

Such beautiful photos! Yes, life looks pretty good in your neck of the woods.

Happy Birthday - yes, I would agree, the 40's feel like the beginning in some ways.

I absolutely LOVE the pictures from your country house - especially the one of your son in the bath tub! I also like the picture of your daughter just sitting and thinking - it's so peaceful.

grattis lite i efterskott, elisabeth! herregud, snacka om att du liksom ... "nu jävlar är jag 40 o skaffar hus!" bra jobbat. kan inte understrykas NOG! urfin tapet!! + duken där i slutet ser finfin ut. mumma för en mamma! :D skål!

(ja det är bara å vänja sej vid att bli lite förbisedd på landet... men å andra sidan, det vägs upp av andra kvalitéer, inte sant? :) )

a very happy late birthday. I'll be turning 39 next september, do I really have to wait another year before my life begins? ( and I feel fifteen)
I love your cat. That picture of your child sleeping next to him is precious.

Hiro looks so adorable. Cat's are really funny in new homes. Unfortunately when we moved when I was a child, our 3 cats went missing and we never saw them again. But Hiro looks happy. :)

Letter Paper Flower said...

Oh, I adore that picture of your son and the kitty sleeping. So cute!

I also love the pops of green that are turning up everywhere in that house - they're perfect.
