In my private life
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!
