What a life

What a life

I just finished work at 11 p.m. but did a quick job on this to post for Sahraa's fan club ;-). She is now staying with our housekeeper as we are driving to Krakow tomorrow. The house is pretty empty.

An adorable candid photograph of this sweetie, Helen! V
Looking at her back, just let me imagine she pursed her lips to show her dislike, that is a scene on movie.

Reminds me of the Andrew Wyeth painting of the yellow Lab sleeping on the bed. (only the Lab is facing the other way). Beautiful job with this image. You should frame it and hang it! V

She looks very happy, and about to finish your interesting bedtime reading.
She is clearly not an invisible woman.
