 Beau, born on the 10th of January 2013

I know this boy is a miracle gift to his parents.
I hope it will be a gift to the world as well.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

Winter Wonder Land

of the world
I returned to
Have been to Toronto
and on my way home
I enjoyed
the beauty
of my world turned white

My gosh what a trip
with all the inconvinience
of winter, something our country never seems
to be prepared for :(
Glad to be home , only for 3 days

Will be enjoying this white world home without being stuck in traffic, trains and waiting queues ................

Hope you are all doing fine.
Started my new year with a big cleanse, an exam and a standby period. Got called for a Toronto on day 3 when Holland turned white overnight. Had a tiring flight  with lots of delay. It took me 4 hours to get home today from the airport. Had to unwind and took a long nap................
Can't wait to sleep in my own bed. Only 3 days of before the next flight. But I intend to enjoy every moment of it.

Happy New Year !

Happy New Year everyone!

Just came home from an unexpected surprise visit to SF.
Of course I had a wonderful time with Robin.
I forgot my camera, so pictures are taken with my cell phone.
Here is a little impression:
 We celebrated Christmas and New Year
 At Sir Francis Drake
 Now that's what I call trees!
 Talking with Lo :)
 Saint Patrick's, I love this old and new architecture together
 We burned candles for Goedele, as I missed her ceremony that Saturday
And for my Mom, who had her birthday
And for Minoes who is very sick and probably won't get better again.
 We talked to Lo, Emma and Bliss. We had a clearer view (believe me) than this ;)
 Here is to friendship and a wonderful 2013!
 Had a marvelous dinner at the Waterbar 
 another toast
We saw the moon over the Bay Bridge
It was just as always a wonderful visit.

And I flew home and was just in time to celebrate New Years Eve here.
To be quite honest I don't like New Years Eve for several reason.
But a nice surprise was that 10 minutes after 12 my doorbell rang and it was Lars.
We thought he would spend New Years Eve  in Delft, but he changed plans and spent the evening with friends here in Zierikzee.
He came home to kiss us Happy New Year and to pick up his sleeping bag ;)
And off he went into the night which sounded like World war 3. You wouldn't believe our country is in crisis when people bought for 70 million euro of fireworks....... What a waste......
Glad it is over and my animals are doing OK.

I hope 2013 has a lot of good in store for you.
Stay healthy and happy :)
