Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer . 

In my private life

Happy Sunday!

The “big news” of this week has been us meeting my daughter’s future in laws for the first time!

It’s been more than three years since my daughter is with her boyfriend and we finally met his parents yesterday evening!

My husband had strict instructions from my daughter to “cut his hair, shave and buy a new shirt” 🙂

I had no instructions so I guess I was presentable already!

It went well and I think we are all relieved!

Even if the most important is that the kids love each other, that’s still easier if the respective parents at least appreciate each other!

Second funny story: I got a message on Instagram from one of my daughter’s friends from… kindergarden!

He had recognized me in one of my reels where I taught edge painting and was asking me if I would be interested to come to their book fair at university. He offered me to have a stall to display my creations and paintings!

I wouldn’t have recognized him now all tall and with a beard (imagine the change from a five years old blon boy with big blue eyes…). It’s too bad that I have other engagements that day!

But it’s good for my ego to know that at over fifty I am not an “has been” to young eyes thanks to my art LOL

As usual, I am leaving you with some reels.

The first shows, as promised, the edges I painted for Never a Hero!

And this one is a praise to the AMAZING book If We Were Villains that I have recently read! My review was in French but the book is originally in English so if you love dark academia, go for it!

On the blog this week (click on the graphic to read the post)

If We Were Villains by ML Rio is a French review but… it’s just an incredible book!

None of This Is True by Lisa Jewell was just gripping and a real mind f*ck!

Bonesmith by Nicki Pau Preto was a very good surprise with a cocky heroine and an imaginative universe!

Thanks for reading!

  1. So glad the meeting with the future in-laws went well! I’m sure your daughter was nervous bringing the two families together finally.

  2. I love that you met and got along with your daughter’s parents, it will certainly make things easier in the future As usual, I love the painted edges Have a good week, Sophie!

  3. I didn’t get to meet my son in law’s parents until the day before the wedding! I am glad that the meeting went well. It is always nice to run into my children’s friends to see how they have grown into adults. I love that they have a spot for you to do your painting.

  4. The instructions!! Oh no ahaha – happy that went good! You are absolutely right, all that matters is the love between your kids. But oh my lord some in laws can really be something else

    Oooh that’s awesome! Me & mother often chat about people I went to school with- id show their pictures if I run into one like on tinder and we « omg so grown up » together though id say I can still vividly see their child’s faces ; theres one guy coming to work that’s younger than me.. and I do still recognise him (spoiler he doesnt. They never do…though I didnt said anything ahah)

  5. It is a gift if you get on well with prospective in-laws! I had to laugh that your daughter had instructions for you husband to “cut his hair, shave and buy a new shirt”. Lol! Glad to hear it went well.

  6. Kids. Thank goodness we have them around to tell us what to do. LOL! I am sure your husband was presentable before the glow up, but glad you have a good time with the “in-laws”. That is awesome that you were offered a stall. How flattering!

  7. Oh that’s so cool you were able to meet your daughter’s future in laws… and that it went well!

    If We were Villains sounds pretty good!
