In my lunch break, having the last gazpacho soup I could find in the supermarket before winter sets in. It’s been such a hectic week and it’s not a secret I’m counting down the days and weeks until Christmas and New Year. But work has plenty of gems too. Last night saw an interesting reading Continue Reading

I’m not sure where she got the piracy tendencies from, but it looks great (especially since it’s from my own collection ;). hun you look gorgeous….but please bring back the trousers and the bag x

It’s one of those weekends which is much needed! I started it off yesterday late afternoon with a stroll in the woods followed by dinner at restaurant Groenendaal. All was so peaceful and quiet and it provided opportunity to pause and breath in the autumn air. This weekend is reserved for work at the fireplace, Continue Reading

Or working whilst getting a haircut or pedicure. I do my concalls during Continue Reading

It’s back-to-school, and as every other parent, I am getting used to the new schedule. Fitting in new appointments, rearranging others and finding routine to an otherwise hectic autumn. Swimming lessons have reverted back to Wednesdays and with that Mexican dinners with the Brady Bunch. It’s a welcome break to the week, which usually comprises Continue Reading

As of recent I wake up earlier than normal. Not because something is brooding, but as it seems my bio rhythm has changed without rhyme or reason. Where I could easily sleep into past ten on a weekend, I wake up at quarter past eight invariably. My weekends are much the same though as in Continue Reading

Yesterday, as I had finished the grocery shopping for the week to come, it really hit home how much I missed Cecile. All those moments, which with their significance had lodged into memory. Good and bad…although Cecile always had a tendency of turning the latter into the former. Dogs have that rare gift I suppose Continue Reading
