Life at home

I finally started to strip the wallpaper off the walls I've been waiting six years to do this! and have finished the sitting room and most of my bedroom, I dream of white walls.

I bought this fresh loofah at the supermarket it still has its seeds, do you think I can grow a vine from them?

some lovely flowers brought home from an engagement party

another little parcel arrived

We built Kuku a little desk

And created this little space for Bubu

and enjoyed being able to open the windows again

 I have been having alot of  problems with replying to comments, leaving comments and replying to e-mails with my yahoo address, I am really sorry for being silent I hope I can work out the reason soon.

Lamenting time

My beautiful K turned nine today and it makes my heart squeeze.

Watch out for time it creeps by you when you aren't looking.

We love you Kuku x

Ramadan roadtrip - The journey home

We took our time on the journey home, with many pit stops and despite arriving home a whole day late and utterly exhausted we really enjoyed it.
This place had intriqued us on the way to Al-Baha, so on our way back to stopped to take a closer look.
It is a bedouin settlement in the middle of nowhere ( these are the places where women drive in Saudi Arabia ). We loved all its sculptural forms and posing camels.
