When Jules turned 7 last year we bought him a new bike. The bike turned out to be too heavy and he simply refused to use it. So our search for a new bike started and just before he turned 8 we found it. The most perfect (unisex) lightweight bike. And it came in his […]Read more "biker boy"
Yesterday we spent our first day of the year at the beach. It was grey and gloomy, but we were determined to go. We left our bathing suits at home, which Jeanne was a bit disappointed about, but once she felt how cold the water was, she stopped asking if she could go in. As […]Read more "first day at the beach"
No better way to spend Sunday than having a pancake brunch with friends. In this case pictures speak louder than words. Thank you Liesbeth and Hendrikje for the lovely day. All kids dressed in Tiny Cottons Pictures taken with NIKON D7200Read more "little friends brunch"
It has been awhile. Life took over. December is so so busy and in January we need to recover from all the Christmas madness. So, hello February. An easy going month which will be all about our little man’s upcoming birthday. 7! He turns 7! I try not to think too much about that part, […]Read more "hello again"
We spent most of last week indoors, we all have been under the weather, but when the sun came out to say hello on Sunday, the kids and I decided we should collect some fallen leaves to craft with. Bundled op in cosy knits and warm boots, they enjoyed playing and running around, I can […]Read more "autumn leaves"
De werkweek zit er alweer bijna op en ik kan eerlijk zeggen dat ik hier enorm blij mee ben. Heel het gezin was wat futloos en vooral heel heel moe. De kinderen wouden niet opstaan en zowel mijn man als ik waren niet bepaald heel vrolijk als het alarm afging. Begrijp me niet verkeerd, ik […]Read more "working week fatigue"
Mornings. You got to love them, or not. Both Jeanne and I are no morning persons and I don’t have to tell you how difficult that can make our morning routine. This morning was not a good one. I snoozed one time to much. Auch! Jeanne was still fast asleep and I know that when […]Read more "mornings"
‘Autumn’, it must be one of my favourite English words and above all, my favourite season. I love the colours, the smell and oh.. do I love the fashion, the layers, the knits… The only downside must be the rain and I can tell you, it rains a lot here in Belgium. That is why […]Read more "autumn is on its way"
Week 3 of the holiday has started and we celebrate this with the new Bobo Collection. The theme of their collection is DEAR WORLD, they try to make us aware about the pollution of the sea. Have you seen the water of the seas? Full of rubbish and oil and plastic (cfr Bobo Choses campaign […]Read more "dear world"
Every Wednesday afternoon while Jules has tennis practice, Jeanne and I try to do something fun together. We take a walk, shop a bit, talk, go watch a movie. She also loves to go to ‘the little bridge’ as she calls it. Of course, not every Wednesday is all fun and play, unfortunately there are […]Read more "birds and housewives"
