A sad story with a happy ending! Me in 2007 looking like my old self, and the following years...
is starting my day with a peaceful breakfast... Happy Birthday to me! :)
29 November 2015
bought a bright orange cardigan... I am still in shock about that. Hopefully I'll wear it! (Orange has always been a color I strongly disliked... why did this cardigan tempt me?) - Shorter hair too!
was grateful for a lovely time over dinner with my mother last night... these moments when she seems content are precious...
is leaving for a couple of hours sightseeing (sadly in the rain!) before more meetings tomorrow! Yay!
enjoyed a walk by the seaside just before the sun disappeared over Malta tonight
always loves being back home, especially after a nice sunset on the flight back!
is looking at these lovely flowers on my desk this morning and loving working from home (who would have thought?!)
is leaving for date #2 (lunch and movie)... Wish me luck! :)
had a good day today, phew! I also want to share that one of my coats now fit! Woohoo! I really liked that one!
elebrating a new Non Scale Victory today!!! The beautiful leather boots I had bought before I started gaining weight, several years ago, fit again! Woohoo!
New jeans, new fleece, and also new lipstick!
finally found the courage to knock on the door of the apartment where my mother used to live many years ago in Algiers... The lady let me in and I could take pictures of the view!
was so glad one of my new friends here lent me an outfit for the engagement party I got invited to! Not my style at all but trousers/pants wouldn't have been appropriate, everybody had dressed up!
is feeling good after spending the afternoon at the hairdresser! :-)
So special to meet HOLLYM48 at last and to go on a hike together (07/31/15)
A lovely time with HOLLYM48 on 31st July... The weather was perfect for our hike!
had a fantastic evening with HOLLYM48 and her DH last night. Now looking forward to our hike tomorrow!
This is so awful I want to hide! But let's focus on the NOW... I am so grateful for the weight lost!

enjoyed the 'BBQ and fun' at the nursing home. My mother wore a hat and was peaceful and usually smiling (almost impossible to take a picture nowadays though, she doesn't know where to look...)
is home, after a fantastic time sightseeing in Ethiopia! (Blog coming later this week!)
Outside Royaumont Abbey, February 2015
Another sewing project completed! I love my new laptop case!
View from my hotel's roof in Rome tonight... So happy to visit these gorgeous places for work!
A beautiful roadside shrine I discovered in Picardie at Easter... so appropriate!
Bluebells and wild anemones in the woods on top of Mont Sainte-Hélène, near Beauvais...
Wild asparagus and wild garlic found during my walk in the woods tonight... wonderful for my salad!
I love lilacs!!! (London, Spring 2013)
Visiting a literacy class in Cairo, Egypt, last April... Did I say lately how much I love my job? :)
Hiking in the snow near Gerberoy, North of Paris
With my new sequined coat, I can be my own Christmas tree this year! ;-)
