Where do you go to (My lovely)?

Where do you go to my lovely when you are alone in your bed... Catalina loves this song. The very first time she heard this song was watching Hotel Chevalier, a short of one heartbreaking history of love and the prologue of the travel told in The Darjeeling Limited.

I love this lyrics, it´s suposed to be Sofia Loren.

You talk like Marlene Dietrich

And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire

Your clothes are all made by Balmain

And there's diamonds and pearls in your hair

You live in a fancy appartementOf the Boulevard of St. Michel

Where you keep your Rolling Stones record

And a friend of Sacha Distel

But where do you go to my lovely

When you're alone in your bed

Tell me the thoughts that surround you

I want to look inside your head

I've seen all your qualifications

You got from the Sorbonne

And the painting you stole from Picasso

Your loveliness goes on and on, yes it does

When you go on your summer vacation

You go to Juan-les-Pines

With your carefully designed topless swimsuit

You get an even suntan, on your back and on your legs

When the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz

With the others of the jet-set

And you sip your Napoleon Brandy

But you never get your lips wet

But where do you go to my lovely

When you're alone in your bed

Tell me the thoughts that surround you

I want to look inside your head, yes I do

Your name is heard in high places

You know the Aga Khan

He sent you a racehorse for chistmas

And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh haha

They say that when you get married

It'll be to a millionaire

But they don't realize where you came from

And I wonder if they really care, they give a damn

But where do you go to my lovely

When you're alone in your bed

Tell me the thoughts that surround you

I want to look inside your head

I remember the back streets of Naples

Two children begging in rags

Both touched with a burning ambition

To shake off their lowly brown tags, yes they try

So look into my face Marie-Claire

And remember just who you are

Then go and forget me forever

'Cause I know you still bearthe scar, deep inside, yes you do

I know where you go to my lovely

When you're alone in your bed

I know the thoughts that surround you

'Cause I can look inside your head

How to be the best at everything

This is the last book I bought Catalina and I think it is very funny.

Arrivederci Catalina!!!

I love this picture. Catalina is in her favourite lounge chair

Catalina is already in Spain, she came back to Spain accompained by her Mum and her Granny three hours ago, and I miss her so much!!!

She has spent more than a month living with me (her auntie) in Ireland and now she is in Spain. It is not fair. Of course, she is with her Mum and her Granny, and she has to go her swimming lessons, her ballet lessons, she has to play with her classmates and her playmates... but I miss her a lot.

I know the Spanish weather is better than the Irish-raining weather (in this moment it is raining here) and I also know I am going to Spain in one month because of her birthday, five years old, but I miss her beautiful smile, her lovely voice, her little hands, her tiny feet.
Ok Catalina, in one month I will be with you, so ¡hasta pronto Catalina! See you soon!!!, Arriverderci!!!

Catalina goes shopping

Catalina is playing in Milk + Cookies, the cutest children store in Dublin. While you try mini-dreses from brands like Maan or Quincy, you can play in its play area, ‘Aiko’s Kitchen’, that is scrawled in crayon on a cardboard Wendy house.

Catalina is having lunch after a lot of shopping

She is tasting her leek soup. Yummy, Yummy

Catalina is waiting for her macarons Laduree

Catalina is thinking "i want all of them"

Catalina wanted more macarons

Catalina is in BT´s changing room. She bougth a charming Bonpoint T-shirt and some cute little knickers.

Catalina is having her merienda after a really hard shopping day. Of course, she ate a lot of macarons

Catalina, Juliet and Ruby

Catalina has gone back to Smithstown House, Drumree, to enjoy riding Winnie, the white horse. But this time Catalina rode in Ruby, the brown one. She had lot of fun riding Ruby, she loves him. And she also loves, of course, the friendly and welcoming teacher Juliet.
Thank you so much, Juliet!!!

Her newest I Pinco Pallino dress

Catalina is drinking her Daiquiri Jr

Catalina was very proud of her new dress

Catalina was waiting for her yummy food

Manuel asked for this dessert and Catalina ate the dessert

Catalina hasn´t any chance to wear her new dresses in Ireland. But last Saturday we went to have dinner to The Tea Room, a fantastic restaurant in Dublin. So she could wear one of her new dress, her fabbest and newest I Pinco Pallino dress.

The dinner was so yummy, yummy. As aperitif she asked for a Daiquiri Junior, and then more yummy food, and as dessert... she ate Manuel´s dessert.

Rathbegan Lakes

Pippi Longstocking

This week Catalina and I are reading Pippi. Catalina enjoys reading Pippi very much, and she loves Pippi, Tommy and Annika. When I was a little girl I used to watch Pippi on the telly but I could hardly remember the song, so... youtube.

Catalina loves the song too.

Esta semana Catalina y yo estamos leyendo Pippi. A Catalina le encanta, y ella adora a Pippi, a Tommy y a Anikka. Cuando yo era pequeña yo solía ver Pippi en la tele pero yo apenas recordaba la canción, así que... youtube.
Catalina adora la canción.

The Ugly Ducklings´ Dancing Cabaret

Catalina is a little scared

Catalina can´t see any duckling

The tickets

Catalina and her ice-cream-shaped chocolate lollipop

Catalina and her pizza

Last Saturday Catalina and I went to see "The Ugly Ducklings´Dancing Cabaret" at Ark . First of all, we had lunch in the Temple Bar Food Market in Meeting House Square. This Market takes place every Saturday from 9 am until 5 pm, and there are a lot of stalls, there's sushi, there's jam, there's waffles, there's freshly baked bread and tapas both Spanish and Mexican-style. So, you can choose on a lazy Saturday. So Catalina had a little bit of pizza and a huge ice-cream-shaped chocolate lollipop.
And then, we went to The Ark to see " The Ugly Ducklings´ Dancing Cabaret". It was very funny. First, Catalina was a little scared and a little disappointed because she didn´t see any duckling, but finally she had fun.
