Speaking about dolls

                                        


Maybe I shouldn't put this here like this at this point but.... as I was busy thinking about doll manufacture, something unexpected happened to me. I realised something was strange during a puppet workshop. I made a puppet with recycled foam, cardboard and strings, and I made a fierce Tamil warrior that seemed to scare all the other students by the way... then the next thing I know, I'm feeling violently nauseous when I look at the puppet or anything related to dolls.... 

Guess what, I'm pregnant. My IUD moved apparently. Hubby's first reaction was "sue the doctor" lol.

As I am over 40, it is considered a high risk pregnancy. And hubby is panicked because apparently in India it is very bad to have a child at such an age. And the age difference with my other children is going to be huge.  It feels really weird to be in pregnancy mode again as I was totally certain menopause was imminent and was finally accepting transition to crone/grandmother role. 

I remember so vividly going off to India in 2008 in a turmoil, trying to find a new meaning in life as I would never ever again have children.

Oh well, let's wait and see what happens next.... I feel once again God is playing with me.

Woh, félicitations! :D

Peu importe l'âge tant que vous vous sentez prêts toi et ton chéri. :)

(C'est marrant, dans ton pseudo il y a "papa" ("dad" aussi), et "acha", qui est une confirmation positive en hindi.)

Merci Kori ! :)
C'est intéressant, ce que tu dis sur le pseudo. En fait je l'ai choisi car c'est ma couleur préférée dans les crystaux Swarovski, une sorte de rose/orange (c'est aussi une pierre semi-précieusen je crois qu'on dit "spinelle" en français).
Je suis passée en coup de vent sur l'ile il y a quelques semaines, j'ai vu que beaucoup de choses s'étaient passées. Gros bisoux.

Je vois, une sorte de rose-saumon, très joli!

Pas mal de choses se sont passées oui, de ton côté aussi j'imagine :) , si tu trouves le temps de venir nous donner des news à un moment n'hésite pas, ça me ferait vraiment plaisir d'en avoir.

En attendant bonne route à vous deux dans cette nouvelle aventure. :)

Gros bisous!
