My Little Sis is Now 30

And as she is few years younger than I am, I don’t even want to think what that makes me… She is spinster in making, but I have to say she has shown the sings for years. (Please don’t take this too seriously!) Continue reading

I Should Have Known Better

I was visiting Italy in the spring. Yes, yes I know, I’ve been thinking of telling you this story since then, but somehow I seem to not have gotten into it. Don’t ask me what I’ve done, because I am not able to explain it – I am not even sure if I know it myself. Continue reading
