I can’t believe it’s already the middle of May ... how is it even possible ? In a month, over here, it’ll be exam season, fo both my teen boys. So we’re quite entering a pretty busy season ... Then early July, it’ll be school holidays, until early September, even hubby will be on holidays (3 week in July, then 3 weeks in August)

We managed to squeeze a little moment out this past weekend (which was spent half the time for our eldest exam movie..) , during which hubby & I picked a dyeing material (but I can’t talk about it now, sorry), well actually two of them ! I hope to make a return to natural dyeing, it’s been so so long, way too long ...

The weather these days is rather pleasant temperature speaking, but we’ve been having nasty nasty winds for days and days, weeks actually. We can’t enjoy the swimming pool just yet, while last year I was already swimming ! But sleeping well at night and not being boiling hot all the time is something I deeply appreciate !! So no complaint from me !!!

I’m sticking to the schedule I created last week, and managed t work out 4 times last week (see my previous post), as planned ! Feeling proud of myself, and happy my simple plan works !

Gotta go now, but I wish you a great week ahead ! Thank you for stopping by today !

With love,
xoxo
