A new pastime of my son's is drawing little maps. 
This one he made just before lunch yesterday detailing the morning's adventures. It was the last day of my parent's visit, they left before dawn today, school begins tomorrow and a return to the 'normal' routine resumes. Always a bit strange when loved visitors set sail back for their own homes. 
The house is a bit quieter. more still.  
Happy memories still waver in the air though. 
Apologies for being so silent these last few weeks, have been rediscovering the wonders of the islands with my parents.
**Apologies no corner view this week, I just didn't manage it. Will be sure to jump in for next week though. For this weeks Wednesday's corner view  'Vending Machines' go here


  1. that's a good start to mind maps!:)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map

  2. Who can blame you enjoying the island? ;)
    It must be so pretty there around now that it is Spring.
    And your son is quite the little artist! I remember the donkey carts. They still use it a lot? When I lived on Gozo I so enjoyed seeing them...it was as being thrown back in time.
    Have a great week roaming the shores of Malta. ;)

  3. No apologies needed, I am glad you took time off for yourself. We all need breaks now and then - real life matters :^)

    I am so impressed by your son's maps - this sort of creativity blows my mind. Story telling and recalling a journey in pictures. Brilliant.

  4. Oh I love this drawing! What a wonderful mind he has!

  5. oh i love it! sorry difficulties typing... but i had to comment. really fantastic imagination, rendering, everything. so happy you enjoyed your family's visit and the tourism! --still lots of bandage on the hand so sorry...

  6. Good you had a great time with your parents, so the routine starts again? We get back to ours on Monday...

  7. my son used to do the same thing. i know what you mean about visiting relatives- always bitter sweet:)

  8. Priceless! Glad to hear you enjoyed time with your parents.

  9. i love it that he's drawing maps! so glad you could have a nice long visit.

    one never thinks about the longterm - longdistance implications when you're young and in love. i think maps help us to bridge those distances. as do blogs!

  10. Mlle, I so agree with you!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
