This was a difficult time I had - immediately after the birth of my son - things were extremely trying for me. My in-laws and I went to the seaside town of Bordighera (near Monte Carlo) and stayed there for nearly two months. Lily who was three, had a wonderful time there. I made this layout for her but I think some of the bad feeling I associate with the place must have crept into the journaling. She read it and then looked at me and said 'You do not like Bordighera very much, do you?' I did not want it to be so evident. But after all the trouble I took to hand journal, I am not changing anything. Lily is a big girl now - she understands I am sure.
