It’s the weekend!

I have had today off from work… very nice….. but have been struggling with a terrible headache… it comes from overworked muscles in the neck and shoulder area… but I can’t complain… it has been a good day.

I have done some laundry and washed the floors… made dinner and changed the bowl for the fishes.. (it had turned green) hehe… neglected for a while poor things.

Now they’re happy!

Me and Lexi have had a nice day at home while the kids were at school and my husband at work.

Look at this face!


she’s cute huh!?

My cousine turns 40 today, and she’s in Rome with her husband… I am soooo jealous, it' sounds fantastic! Wish I has there too!!!

Well, maybe some day… I have been to Italy, but not to Rome… yet…

here are a few pictures from Florence.



A beautiful place

Go there if you ever get a chance!

Have a great weekend!


Lots of love Monica

Hello everyone!


Lately I have been very tired… and have been needing a break.. I have tried to stop by some of you from time to time… and I hope you don’t forget about me….


This weekend we spent outside most of the time, spring has come, and there are heaps of things to do with our big garden….. yesterday I had to do something I don’t really enjoy…. weeding!!!  BUT it turned out great.. so I’m satisfied! :-)


I have a feeling as summer draws closer, most of us will spend alot more time outside, rather than in front of the computor.. I know I will… but know this.. I will be back, and I will stop by whenever I have the time and feel up to it!


I truly appreciate all of you and I am so glad I have found you, you are all truly amazing ladies, and it’s so fun to see how different we all are, and yet.. we like the same things! :-)


please don’t give up on me… keep coming back to give me a little push!

I am doing fine.. everything is allright.. I have been working alot.. that’s all!

Happy days! Happy easter! God påske!

De colores, de colores
se visten los campos de la primavera.
De colores, de colores
son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera.
De colores, de colores
es el arco iris que vemos lucir.
Y por eso los grandes amores
de muchos colores me gustan ami.
Y por eso los grandes amores
de muchos colores me gustan ami.

the answer is…..

Back to the bottle.. the reason I asked is that ….

Studies have shown that adults first and foremost see a couple embrasing eachother… we see the white part first-

While children will see the darker parts first… and will see 9 dolphins playing in the bottle…

AND now I bet you see them too!
