Last week we went to France visiting friends who own a house in the country.
The house is in a typical French village and has a wood burning heater and a huge garden.
Although the house is still a work in progress it is perfect for a little getaway. We got to spend three days of eating croissants, bbqing, sleeping, a little hiking and chopping wood.
For that occasion I brought a new blouse and my Lumberjack boots that I own since I was about twenty years old. Vacation time is over so now it’s back to reality. Happy week everyone!

Hat America today
Notice is a new brand by Bon’a parte. Bon’a parte is an online shop from Denmark.
They used to sell clothes only but now they have so much more. Beautiful home decoration and jewelry. Needless to say I am a big fan and my next shopping bag is already filled with new items. I just have to click the send button.
A while ago a colleague of mine was assembling a team to run at the Spieren for spieren run in Hilversum. She asked if I would join, of course I said YES, there was plenty of time to practice…
Last sunday was the big day. I did practice, once. But now there was no going back. Don’t ask me how I made it to the finish. Still, it was fun and next year I’ll probably say YES just as enthusiastically as this year.
After the run I went to see my friends who have the most adorable daughter! Still in the mood for a little race me and her went for it but unfortunately I lost :-). A really fun day and the two days after during which I could barely walk because of the muscle pain were worth it.
Last weekend we went to see some friends at their house in Friesland.
It was lovely to see them again and catch up. The house has all the ingredients for a perfect weekend: peace and quiet, a forest nearby, a woodstove for marshmellows (more in the next post). Time flew by. Thanks for a great weekend and: next stop France.

Finally, after waiting for over a year, I went to see the Hobbit part two with some friends.
It was worth the wait so high hopes for the final part next year.
For now I have to make do with the dvd of part one we got from John (thank you!) while waiting for the last part.
