Bubye 2005

So far, and it's 8.54 am, 2005 has been a real purrfect year!
Loup has joined the family
Lola's getting more and more adorable
Martin and I are definatly ... happy! oh yeahhhh! :)

Joe's meowwwwwing right now, asking for food, purrring already **~~*^*

oh, and I've just (yesterday) signed a 6th contract with my publishing house!

A blessed year, so far.
What do I expect from 2006?

New adventures, like another book published, improvements in my paintings, a trip at the other side of the planet, Lola's being clean during nights and Loup actually making his nights :)

I wish you a perfect 31st of December, and a really happy New Year with... Love and zillions of spicies around, yup!

Psycho-killer questionnary

Thanx to Nim, I finish the year with another lil game! Yeeeepeeeeee!
Ok the questions are a bit strange, but (hand on heart) it's a question of honour (& pleasure :P) for me to answer and play any lil online game when I'm asked too !

1) Which questionnary would I love to answer ?
Hmmm, the one you're about to send me!

2) If I was a crushed animal on the road, which one would I be ?

Spoiled feet and nose

Now tell me, what did you get for Xmas? Been spoiled? over spoiled? Or do you wonder when is Xmas really? ;-)

If lucky, you've been as spoiled as meself... with real cowboy boots, yeahhhhh!!!! I wanted some since -oh Gawd- AGES! Having my lil feet in them feel wonderful, really comfortable and having the inner power to kick every ass around! I Luuuuve them!

And then, Santa Candy spoiled herself (sowwwy, dunno why I'm talking of meself this way, next time I'll use a plain "I", "I" promise! oops! hehe) with a new perfume. I usually wear with much pleasure Flower by Kenzo... this time I found Flower by Kenzo "Oriental"! ...which has about nothing to do with the first one, but which is as delicious (said to be made with Bulgarian rose, violet, vanilla, musk, Sichuan pepper, and Chinese incense) and which I find purrfect for winter! (fainting with pleasure)

It's so easy to please me in a material way, I almost feel ashame of it! (but not really, huh ;-)

back & tapping foot

(...only because my foot's freezing! grmmppphhh!)

How is it going on your side of the (cold/hot) planet, ewws all?!!
We came back to Paris a bit earlier than expected, Joe's being more sick, Loup and Martin too (both caught a bloody cold!)
But we spent a great week in Hamburg, in shops, in pubs and at (cosy) home. We spent actually too much time in shops, Xmas stuff, huh. So no time for another tatoo or anything that pleasantly frivolous! (what? Xmas shopping is frivolous?! tsss)

Ermmm (cough cough) I've to admit though that Santa Claus spoiled me in a most generous (frivolous again? naaaaa) way... I can tell I have very HAPPY feet right now -even if they're still freezing-...oh and a very happy nose too! more about that later ;-)

Lola's doing really well, even though she's turned to be CRAZY about anything related to princess stuff ... Now each time I see a toy or a magazine or whathefookingever with "Cinderella" or "White Snow" on it, I run away screaming... These things are dangerous I tell you (I must take a pic of Martin dressed as "le beau prince" for instance!)

Now Loup ... Haaaa 2 months-old now (happy sigh) and still developping a "wolf" kind of personnality! He does not bite, no, not yet, but he's fooking improving at the full moon howl!
Since a few days, he's also started coughing, sneezing... but despite all these new adventures, he still enjoys VERY MUCH waking up 2, 3 times every night! Youplaboum!

Bonjour Hamburg

A couple of hours and we're off for 10 days! Yeeepeeeeee!!!!
We'll be back just after Xmas... so I wish you already a happy, groovy, BUBBLING (most important! hic!) one **~~*^* *
Don't behave (or, okok, just when your lovely grand-ma' is around :-)

Mwaaaaa! Mwaaaaaa**~~*^* *

Ol' Santa is taking notes

Following Alix'idea, I wanted to add a lil survey to my blog :-) (crossing bits here, hoping it will work!)

So here you go, a survey talking to the material boy/girl in you (don't expect Santa to bring Peace on Earth or anything like that, nenene ;-)

What do people really want for Xmas?
the best high tech package (new puter, cam, ipod, etc)
a trip around the world
a 5 rooms flat in a big city
a nice cottage in Ireland
a Chef cooking for you at home
free tickets for any concert during all your life
1000 books of your choice
800 pairs of shoes + the 800 clothes that go with the shoes!

And you never know, Santa Claus might be REALLY taking notes!

10 secrets about food

I've just caught Obni's thread which consists in revealing 10 *secrets* about your tastes/habits/feelings for food! (what a perfect topic!)

(oh, have you noticed how much I luuuve knowing about your "secrets" lately? But I'm fair, I always tell you mines before asking about yours!)

1. I'm not a feminist in the extreme way, but I trooly believe men are wonderful in kitchen!
2. I'd sell my soul for a good rum, make it a real ti'punch and ... (faint)
3. I like having my veal liver still raw inside
4. I love raw mussels, I'm crazy for anykind of seafood anyway, but ... I'll turn green if you give me fish.
5. I have a great 6th sense and much intuition (lol, yeah), but for some reasons, both do not work for me when I cook
6. When we travel by car, we desperatly look for Mc Donald's on our way, cheap and so great for ermm kids to have a break :P
7. I love the American way when people join for a party, everyone bringing a different dish
8. I love these restaurants in London where you can bring your bottles of wine, even if it feels a bit weird
9. I could never be a vegetarian
(pssssit Candy, "never" say "never" :P)
10. I love chinese food in France, not in UK, I love Indian food in UK, not in France...oh and I love Italian food about anywhere, but more specially in.. Germany! (running to pack the luggage)

I send now the bottle to hmmm... Miz Penny, Jack, Martin, Etolane! that we get an Aussie, English, German and Canadian (on peut dire que t'es canadienne la belle, oui? ;-) view on it!
and of course... whoever wanna catch the bottle is welcome (like ermmm.. Mel' for instance! hehe ;-)

exposing oneself in 6 bits

Since Mel' definatly knows I enjoy tests and quizz, no way I can escape any new ones ;-)

The random facts' questionnary

How does it work? (comment ça marche)

Write 6 random facts about yourself, and then list the names of 5 people whom you in turn infect. (écrivez 6 faits aléatoires sur vous-même, puis listez 5 personnes à qui vous souhaitez refiler ce truc)

I've to add that of course the facts you'll talk about are like lil secrets, nobody here really know about them ;-)

okies, my 6 random bits:

1. when I was 25, I realized my shoes' size was 38 and not 37

2. I will die in a car accident, at least I've always felt I will

3. I luve sitting for a morning coffee on Saturdays, in front of the city hall, to watch wedding gangs

4. I hate sarcasm, though I use it sometimes (against my own will!)

5. I buy something on the internet almost once a week

6. Unlike what some might think, I am not patient and gets into bad mood pretty often (most often against my -old fart type- neighbours)

I won't ask blog writers to answer these questionnary, but for once, non blog-owners:
(wake up, ewws readers, my friends, yess, you, you and you! hehe ;-)

-Marie L.

I can't wait for your answers, naturally :P
(don't thank me, no, it's my pleasure ;-)

edit: after a scond thought, and since Mel' reminds it to me :P, I add Lalaith to the list :P (merry Xmas, Lalaith ;-)

If only cats had 9 lives..

.. we would not be that upset with Joe :(
His tumour getting more and more visible, we finally went to the veterinary.
He confirmed what we thought: this time, nothing can be done against it . The bloddy tumour has reached Joe's back, muscles and legs.
12 months maximum are given to Joe.
Nothing to do except waiting for the first signs of pain.
The tumour will get bigger and bigger, will turn pretty huge, but might not be painful before the last moments.
So far, if you do not look at it with attention, you don't notice it. But it's already 10cm long and dunno, 2cm thick. Hard as a rock.

Joe's not feeling any pain, I'm sure of that. No, actually, he's even doing like on top of the world!!!

He's gonna be part of the trip to Hamburg. We don't want to let him for a day. Besides, he loves it there. It has to be a great Xmas for him too. For him specially.

Vikings vs devoted monks

Haaaa Alinet is always very good at finding treasures! :-))

Have a look at this and then only you can tell your prayer ;-)

Have a warm Monday, ewwwws all (I make an exception for Penny, I wish you a colder one :P)
Mwaaaaa*~~*^* *^^* *

4 certitudes and a Christmas mise-en-bouche

1) When you are really RILLY tired, the glass is definatly half-empty
2) Being of same blood does not make everything
3) I'm a city girl, and I'm not ready to live in the country side right now. Not in an isolated hamlet. Impossible. A chock, I thought I could. We don't change our plans with Bretagne though... The hobbit house is far from being finished, and I'll probably change my mind again:)

After these certitudes, I'll *need* to write down a proper Xmas wishlist :)

4) Truffes are simply delicious
Not feeling on top of the world, I just *needed* something special. The epicurean in us made its job and for the first time in our life, we bought a real truffe! A unique experience!
It was really affordable, the truffe + a lil fois gras for about 40€ (lol well, ok, that's expensive! But pleasure for the body and the soul has no price sometimes).

The fois gras and truffe slept together for a night, let's call it a yummy quickie!
It was unexpected, revealing, delicious

Today the glass is rather half-full :)

Answer a quizz, you will know what you believe in ;-)

(so easy to know about oursleves with all these tests and quizz!!!

You fit in with: Spiritualism

Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.

Take this quiz

Hmm, organized religion is definatly not important for me, they put walls around one's own beliefs. But I do not say religions are not to be considered, I just don't spit on religions at all.
And the rest is pretty exact :) (and I think 80% of people would see themselves this way too ;-)

It's been a hard day's night,

..and I've been working like a dog

I should not be lalaalaaa-ing this way, I'm too tired for that too!
I still think it's great to be able to work from home but sometimes it is not easy. really!

Like yesterday for me...
I woke up, at 6.00 am (as Loup decided ;-), thinking I had many illustrations to "prepare" before the end of the weekend, and that with the help of Martin, it would be fine.

Martin really helped, but with the kids and a lot to do outside, I could not start before 6.00 pm... Bloody clock, too fast for me!
Anyway, I started at 6.00, stopped 2 times to feed our hungry lil wolf, and finally decided I should jump into bed at 1.30 am
2.15 am, Loup woke up screaming for milk.
(arggg, have we really slept?)
Martin gave him a bottle and I used that time to work again.
3.30 am back to bed.
6.30 am, Loup's night is over apparently :)
I feed him and while he's falling asleep on my left arm, I start to work again.
11.30 am, my doodles are organized! No more work for the weekend!!!!!

Now I'm dead, but too dead to sleep, you know?!
Loup's looking at me, installed on my left arm again, happy lucky lazy lil angel :)**~~^* * *^^~~*^*

Harry Lennon

When Lola saw this pic this morning...

... she asked why Harry Potter was angry here! LOL
And I reckon John Lennon had not the most welcoming kind of face, almost looking as if he always had a lil fart to let go...

Anyway, 25 years he passed away and that reminds me I do like the Beatles!
That was not the case when I was a teen, but times have changed :)

When I'm in the *right* mood (like *Spring* mood), I LUVE St Pepper's, Yellow submarine and other Abbey road albums!
Their songs usually make me want to run nekkid in some beauDiful forest like a lil rabbit! LOL
See, I don't need any kind of speed, music makes that job for me :P

How many again? 38, 40, 58 candles?

Happy birthday to sir Esox, our blogless (nobody's purrfect ;-) dear friend!!!!
(We see each other after Xmas, k?)

Pssshit: si je me suis plantée de date, pas grave, ça sera comme d'hab'! lol

ein curry wurst fur mish!

yummmm yummmmm!!!

Yeahhh I'll have one -at least-... by next week! (drooling)
We've decided we'll spend a whiter and colder Christmas... in Hamburg!

(doing the happysunnybananas's dance around the totem)

Loup does not make his nights at all... but fook, we all need holidays! So that's decided, we'll go there. Tired or not. (well, "tired" for sure! lol)

The trip will be long and probably noisy (;-)), but once there I'll love it and will repeat again how much I'd luve to live there (isn't it always the same when you spend great holidays somewhere? You'd want them to last forever!!! -and don't tell me that is childish! tssss:P)

(running to my xmas wishlist to add this last one!)

Petit miracle

Have you ever seen a wolf smiling?

Well, I've just seen that miracle!
Loup has been smiling for the very first time... not a smile like that, in the air, but a smile answering my clown-ish efforts!

So far I knew his face crying, being upset, angry, calm and asleep (yeah that happens), hungry but... smiling, never!

(happiest sigh)

A wonderful miracle that I could not catch with a cam' so far. No way, too quick, too precious for me to go away even for one second and grab my cam ;-) **~~*^* *^^* *

Frantic tick tick tick tick tick tock

I'm am blogging and THAT is not reasonnable at all... I'am running after every minute and I feel I will never be synchronized with the clock again. I'am late at everything, taking Lola at school, waking up, paying bills... working...even laughing at jokes!


I've just started the preparation for illustrations for the new Herman's book (this time, it deals with "change")... doodles so far, it takes so much time to "illustrate"!!!

You've to create behind words, you've to interprate in the best way. The preparation work is simply huge this time. I must give my 20 illustrations by february, I have no idea if they'll be finished by then.

I need time!!!
(but honestly... I'd give anything to spend my free time in zillions other ways)

the 74 bands' game

Wanna have fun for 5 minutes (5 minutes if you're VERY VEY good at it!)
Penny has found a real nice lil game.

You see that image below? click on it and try to find the names of 74 bands that are hidden in it (so far I've found 18 only!!!!)

click here

PS: it works this way... you can see on the left guns and Guns'n Roses!

Shhhhhh...don't tell anyone!!!

Your darkest secret is:

You wore parachute pants

Take this quiz

Do they mean "parachute pants" in my grand-mother's way you think?
Ouch, gotta start my new quest to find the sex appeal's graal again!

Not a starving Loup ;-)

Lilypie Baby PicLilypie Baby Ticker

We're just back from the Doc and a month ago his weight (birth weight) was 3kg800, now he's 5kg300!
Not bad in a month!
(wondering if it has anything to do with the tons of chocolate I'm having ;-)

Loup has 2 Docs, a married couple that work together. Sometimes I see the man, somtimes the woman.
This time I saw the man and he said the weight was all fine. Last time I saw his wife who worried a lot he was too big and ate too much. Tsssss, sometimes I find females strange, who would worry that a few weeks-old baby eats too much ???!!!

Anyway, I insist on the weight because it's a source of stress for parents of a new born baby!
As the Doc checked Loup, Loup farted like never! Jeeez! Poor baby, that seemed to be painful :(
That makes me think about the other day when we went for shopping. Martin was carrying Loup, hidden in his coat and when he went to pay... Loup farted almost in an adult way (on every aspect)! ...The guy in front of Martin looked at Martin in the most strange and disgusted way! LOL! You've to be careful with a farting Loup!

So Loup sleeps, eats and farts. All the basics to start one's life! :P

Oh he's now 56 cm tall, a month ago he was 51 cm.
I find that fascinating, he grows up almost as quickly as a flower :-)


Among zillions of stuff I LOVE in Germany during Xmas time, there's the (atcha!) "Weihnachtspyramide" (God bless you!) and the delicious Xmas biscuits that I've just had, and which tastes and smells like (a sugary) Heaven!

We've installed our own pyramide and I luve the way the candles make it turn.
I find this *helicopter(Da Vinci type)-xmastree-creche-pyramide* creation very inspiring. It's the candles, I tell you :)

So that you learn something today (s): Christmas pyramids are the precursors of the modern Christmas tree. In the past, the pyramid was known as the “poor man’s Christmas tree” because many families could not afford actual trees of their own. More details here

All that makes me think that in a couple of weeks we should leave Paris for Hamburg, to celebrate Xmas (and friends, and pubs, and clubs, and tattoos, etc etc).
But it will depend how we *feel* it. On one hand we're very excited by the idea of going to Hamburg for party time, it would be the best break...
On the other hand, Loup does not make his nights, and if we go there to spend half of our time sleeping, it would not be fun.

And we want FUN! hehe

We'll see... :)

Mes Loulous de Novembre

(yup another bloggie on my lil devils!)

Just a postcard that tells everything. Lola is being the very best sister with her lil bro. She's so patient and careful and loving.
Even when Loup screams and roars like, well, a tigerwolf, she asks if she can hold him and sing him a song to calm him down. So much love in my shrimpette, and no sign of jalousy at all! **~~*^* * *

click here

First snow in Paris

... and I forgot my camera!
tssss... very *unprofessionnal* for a blogwriter ;-)

Too bad because when we went to chose a Xmas tree on Saturday, it was snowing hard and Lola was just crazy with it! Another "lil house on the prairie"'s episode, I tell you (happy sigh).

We're a bit in advance with the Xmas tree (as usual, huh), but Lola was expecting it so much and we thought it would be a purrrfect occupation for a whole afternoon, yeahhh!!!

And finally, despite very short nights and many cries from the lil wolf (how can such a lil one can scream so much!!!!), we had a great weekend, with Nim's visit as the cherry on the cake!

And now the week has started, I realize I've never been so busy than right now with my 2 loulous. Which makes my days very alive!! :)
But I worry a bit for the illustration work I have to do... when will I find the time, I really wonder. That stresses me a bit.
Anyway, I'll grab any free minute to do it and will finally relax once it's done!

The French Post, really....!!!

Found on miss Lulu's blog, here's what the crystal ball told me today :P

What does your future hold?

You will find a love letter addressed to yourself that was written 20 years ago

Take this quiz

If the crystal ball next time could mention a lil boy making his nights soon, THAT would make my day!

What Loup does not like...

...,at all, is when I start laughing when he's stuck to my boob! Oh that makes him pretty angry I can tell you!

And here are the (cheap) reasons why I did laugh. Maybe you already know these lil videos... personnally I do not need much more to laugh to tears. That's almost sad, isn't it? But hell, I'm that way too :)

video #1: Xena's riding

video #2: Watch your feet!

video #3: Birthday surprise

video #4: the copy machine


Cold feet' season

Yup, the cold feet' season has just started!

My ass is freezin down here and I find it appropriate to insist that summer's heat feels much much beDer (gimme 8 months, and I'll change my mind again :P)

Here's what we expect in the next days (though the sky is wonderfully blooooe this morning)

Snow, we expect snow. Lola's excited, while I wonder how long i can stay outside carrying my lil wolf against my stomach. The temperature isn't motivating at all, despite thick sox!

So I'm going to experiment a *desperate housewives* typical hobby: joining another mama later (she's American and definatly very kewl, we get on very well) to share a guuud cawffee and maybe watch some kind of funny video, and share gossips -naturally-, while our 4 kids will live their life around us.
Winter isn't so appropriate for kids... and worse for mamas who've to entertain their devils all day!

Then on the weekend, we've the most exciting plans... absobloodilutely purrrfect for such a winter time, including...
...finding a xmas tree, hoping this will make Lola busy for most of the weekend
...watching a probably fookin guuuud rugger game tomorrow (france/south africa)
...maybe having one or 2 hours for meself again, who knows!
...oh and expecting Nim's visit on Sunday!

Warm touches on a frozen time!

What age do you act?

You Are 26 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

What Age Do You Act?

hmmm...I wish I was also a bit "under 12", dat's the way I really try to look at the world :-)

4 Non-Blonds

Find X

il est là = x is here

Yup that makes me laff! So what? :P

Winter Loup

Loup is 1 month-old today, yeahhhhh!!!!
He's doing really well: eating-sleeping-crying :-)

And even if last night I slept 4 hours, i do not feel as tired as i was a few days ago...

So no he's not making his nights, only *ours* ;-), but we're getting used to it, which is a relief.

okies, i'm typing with one hand (Loup's eating), so i just make it short today!
have a fookin guuud one :-)

60 minutes for meself

Martin has just left with Lola and Loup for a huge hour!

Thank you, Martin, thank you so much!!!! :-)**~~*^* * *^^* *

A month I have not been alone with meself for a minute! It sounds like Heaven!
Ok.. fine music's on but... I've to decide... whether I just glandouille and relax, or I use the time to clean the flat as I suggested (told you I was a desperate housewife! :P). Argggg.

Don't I look tired enough?! LOL

I'll enjoy the music ANYWAY!

Feeling more than supportive with blonddies

I warn you, the quizz here is stoopid! But what could you expect! :P

I'm am .....

..... 50% BLONDE!!!
You're a sorta average blonde. You're not totally
ditzy, but you're not really clever either!

Me tragic one

First lil quizz of the day, found on Mel's blog! Yeeepeeeee!!!


To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?
brought to you by Quizilla

Oh hmmm, ermmm, gotta check who these Numenorean are rilly, I just can't remember... fookin memory!

Haaa here we go: Numenor is a fictional location in Middle-Earth of the Lord of the Rings. It was essentially Tolkien's version of Atlantis. In the Quenya language of the Elves, it meant "West-land". The story of the creation and downfall of Numenor offers some insights into the fascinating universe created by Tolkien. Elendil, his sons and a few followers escaped from Numenor before its downfall and established the realms of Arnor and Gondor. This line eventually gave rise to Aragorn, son of Arathorn, who was a central figure in the final battle of the ring in the Third Age

Well, that simply means I'm somehow linked to Aragorn, hey! How does that sound, huh! :P

Following Jack's advice, we finally watched the whole father Ted series.
On a lil Irish island, 3 catholic priests live together. 3 catholic priests which are hilarious caricatures of the catholic religion. Very very funny! We luuuved it!

We bought the first season some time ago in UK (hoping to re-sell it at a guuud price here), but we had doubt we'd enjoy it really. So we reluctantly started watching it. Got addicted. I can tell you we had huge laffs in the middle of the night (while feeding Loup) in front of the gang of desperate housewives! The best series we've seen since ages!

"The life aquatic with Steve Zissou", the title was too tempting. An original movie, yes. But I wasn't caught by its magic. Forgot it as soon as I watched it.

It was a good movie, Di Caprio is brilliant (again, no kidding) and Scorcese did a great job, as usual. It's a real show! But... the movie is a bit too purrfect, I wish there had been more emotions maybe, dunno.

After having seen the first images of Colin Farrell as a blondie, I feared the worst.
And I was right!
Oliver Stone made a real bad job this time, he just seemed to forget what was interesting in Alexander's personnality and what was not. Same for the plot. Each time something started to tease the spectator's curiosity, the movie just jumped to another part. Very disappointing!
And the narration was terribly bad, and the backgrounds worst than in the hilarious 1960's peplums, and the actors... Angelina Jolie and her Russian accent, ridiculous, same with Val Kilmer...
As for Colin Farrell, I dunno, but something in him touched me though. I still can't put the finger on *what* really (OMG! fainting! ;-), but I'll let you know when I find :P

When you see Alexander just before, you are almost forced to enjoy Troy! So, I did :P ... in the way I expected the worst of worst movies, but... it was fine! No, really fine!
And a pleasure to find there Peter O' Tool and Sean Bean... without talking of Brad Pitt! Brad in skirt, Brad nekkid, Brad in skirt, Brad nekkid. What a sight! hehe... Martin found that for a Achilles, he lacks muscles... LOL! I insisted muscles were not just *everything* :P

Now, I'm waiting for any suggestion with dvds... What shall we watch next??!

Rock-a-bye baby , on the tree top...

Lucky me! I've got another inspired gift! And this time from the hard working (s) Mel'!

Thank you goil, hehehe, this is indeed very me at the moment!!!!

Penny Sillan on the moon

If my memory isn't too disconnected (hahum), I won't be ridiculous if I jump on my purp' sofa to sing the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to Miz Penny Sillan, the most *wonderful* Aussie creature (and there are a LOT of them overthere) that I know!

We've known each other since, Gawd, I can't remember... 7, 8 years?!!!
Did you know, Penny, that the first time I saw your handle online I imagined you dressed as a nurse, but not a nurse in a Jack's way ;-), neeee a nurse who always said the *right* word at the most appropriate moment! I wasn't far at all from the truth :P

And on that full moon day, I wish you a kazillion of happy vibes for the next year to come!

GMTA !!!

Yesterday I've received a real adorable gift from Nimwendil :

... this was a kind of "double" surprise, because guess what I had drawn for Loup's birthcards a month ago???
(and I've to insist that Nim' had never seen that drawing of mine! ...) :

I was just stuck to my chair when I saw how close the 2 drawings were!
I mean, you can draw a wolf in this or that situation about a zillion different ways!! ... and see what I and Nim' did!

Very revealing, me thinks :P
Good taste (for many things, music, paintings, books, beverages, etc), great ideas, and a unique talent! hehehe ;-)

(yeah my ego is doing pretty ok today ;-)

I will survive! :P

Go, go, Candy! You've 30 minutes to blog today, no more!

If my lil wolf did not require to eat every 3 hours, night and day, I'd certainly have more time.
I'm still not used to get up at midnight, 3.00 am then 6.00 am. Count 1 hour each time to feed him and put him back to bed.

I try not looking too often at the red-haired zombie making faces in the mirror and I try to relax a bit in the mornings, when Lola is at school :)
(tomorrow's my nightmare, no school for Lola... that means, not a minute for meself!)

Everybody tells me I'll forget soon how hard it is taking care of a new born babe.
I've not forgotten how painful contractions are, so far ;-)
And I'm not about to forget how busy life has turned since 3 weeks :P

If I wanna 3 kids? LOL
Good joke ;-)

...but hey, you can be sure we're the happiest here! That's the wonderful paradox :-)***~~*^* * ^^*^* *~~*^* *

Over there, the Sun's shining *hard* :-)

Yussss, Etolane and Juan's babygoilette is born!!!!

I could just *feel* it when I try to call the *mama* several times 2 days ago. But nobody was there.
The only time in 3 weeks I could call and it was just too late! My luck!

Nowwww... I really can't wait to get all the details about the adorable Lily-Soleil!!!!
... and I wish already a fantabizoobidy beginning of *new life* to the papa and the mama!

(On that note, i'll have just a drop of shining beer ;-) to celebrate that... hey, they say it's good to make milk!)

Cry, baby, cry

Awww, like every morning since a few days, I have to enjoy about 2 hours of non stop cries from our lil wolf.
He just wanna eat again and again, and I can't produce milk that quickly!!!

So I let him cry, hoping he will fall asleep at some point.
But no, he never stops. It breaks a lil bit my heart, and much more my ears (s)

And I try to *blog* right now, hoping to stop "hearing" the cries.
And what do I blog about???!!!
