Mon frére s'est marié et le mois de Janvier 2006 ils ont eu une merviellieuse petite fille. Egalement, ma souer à eu un petit garç famille s'agrandit. Mes parents sont toujours en bonne santé, c'est l'essentiel.

Après 2 ans de travaille j'ai enfin reussi le permis...quel bonheur! Il y a tellement des belles événements dans ma vie que je suis très reconnaissante.
