*** update : visit this post at my moved blog : HERE ***

In this time of year it’s great to live where I live, which is a the edge of the bollenstreek or “flower area” Tourists from all over the world make a stop here to enjoy the sight of these flower power fields and no wonder, cause on a sunny day, as it was when I drove through there, the colors are so beautiful and intense.

When you have the change to buy some of tulips or hyacinths, grab the opportunity to brighten up your house with a bit of dutch spring colors.

no more tea, but I don’t want to get up…

OH! What a long long day I’ve had….!!! For work I had to go to our office in Brussels, this meant, absolutely against beliefs, to get up early EARLY.

Out of bed, in the car, in the train, out the train, 2,5 hrs later in an office, which gradually seemed to get warmer and warmer, then back in the train, of course another 2,5 hrs later, back in the car and finally 14 hours later sitting on the couch.

Was enjoying a cup of tea, which is now finished, but my legs don’t want to get me to the kitchen to make another one…

 

 

 

See what I see when I have a healthy lunch…. or not.

Cause I’m supposed to lie on an brazilian beach in less then three weeks, and I bought three bikini’s last summer and hardly had the chance to wear them, I need to make my body a bit more bikini friendly. Therefore I was happy to see  in the canteen that cook had made one of my favorite salads, good step in the right direction I thought…..

unfortunately there were also the irresistible vegetarian springrolls, so I had two of them ( before I took this picture…) hence the sweet chili sauce
