Okay, I’ll show you a few photos. Look, this is my family.

Coffee’s ready. And I use the chance to introduce you to my family — not just in photographs.

This is my is someone really special: my grandmother. And here’s my mother.

This is how we spend our days: we sit together in the evenings and drink coffee. And we women use the time to chat a bit.

Okay, so long. I hoped you liked my house.
