December 31, 2015


All in all 2015 was a pretty good year. The year balance was regained in a way.

Finally the bathroom was finished. One huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

 Even the cats enjoy it.

There was a partial solar eclipse.

Sadly Philibert died of a blocked bladder. He was such a sweet kitty. I miss having him cuddled against me all night.
 Bruno the cat adopted me this year.

Pepita, la plus belle du monde
 Pepita was diagnosed with cancer. I am still  coping with that and trying to make the most of the time we have left together.

I went on a cool trip to the Puy-du-Fou in Vendée. Here ,here and here.

I opened a new shop: The Captain Cosmos

I renovated the  kitchen (and living room...still need to take photos of that)

I settled akward situations with old friends (situtations that were entirely my fault).
I saw a great Broadway musical (The Wizard of Oz), won an Ipad mini in a contest (that I traded for a dishwasher...yeah, I am boring).
I saw some great films: The Imitation Game,  Mad Max Fury Road and Bridge of Spies were my favorites.
Read some great books, I finished the whole "the Cat who..." series by Lillian Jackson Braun.
I did a lot of gardening...and actually enjoyed it.
And I had the worst case of ophtalmic migraine that lasted 2 weeks ><

But all in all, it was a happy year. Hoping for more of the same in 2016.
Happy New Year to all!

Haha, exhanging an iPad for a dishwasher sounds good actually :-)
