Yet another birthday

Olivier came home this weekend to celebrate his 23rd birthday.  Christian was 4 years and two weeks old when Olivier was born.  Struggling every winter with two indoor boy’s birthday parties sometimes had me asking “Why me?”  Fortunately, today they are both grown up enough to sort out their own celebrations.

I can’t believe that February is on its way out already.  Like almost everywhere else we’ve had non-stop rain.  Though we did have a couple of days of sunshine, but usually with a cold wind. There are one or two violets in the garden and around the village quite a few daffodils in flower.

Just before Valentine’s Day I had my monthly Glossybox with a rather interesting make-up pencil that I never thought would have such an interesting effect.  Those who have followed my blog for a while will know that my eyebrows dropped out about 7 years ago.  I learnt how to draw them in, but they do tend to look as if they’ve been drawn with a crayon.  I had a clear wax crayon which normally you use to slick down your natural eyebrows.  I was a little disappointed that it wouldn’t be much use to me… or so I thought.  A little bit of wax picks up and emphasizes the one or two hairs that I have and makes the overall effect more natural.  So now you know.

I have seen the real Anji and I saw nothing unnatural, I thought that you looked great.

While you have had rain all winter, we have had more snow here in the area I'm in than they have had here in over 25 years. In fact, after a week of 60s and low 70s last week, I woke up to about an inch of snow this morning...

I bet you look great with or without the makeup!

Coline: Thank you!

Don: I've always managed to live in regions where there is little snow. These last two days have been sunny, but more rain is promised.
