Almost back

Hello! How are you?? I just really can’t believe it has been more than a month since my last post. Time has gone by so quickly. I hope you have had a great month.

We have been away only half of the month. First we had a wonderful week in the area I’m originally from. The south of our country. And the most beautiful part of it was, that we went with only the two of us. It has been more than 5 years, since my husband and I had a trip without the boys. So the first days, we were sitting in front of the tent, staring at each other; who are you and what are we going to do together??
Than when we figured it out, we had a couple of lovely days, walking in the woods, reading a lot and enjoying good food.

But, I wouldn’t have been myself, if I didn’t have a little accident. So I twisted my ankle, and had to sit down with my foot up. Great way to spoil a wonderful week.


This was the favorite spot of Fleur; everyone who passed by couldn’t walk by without giving her some attention!

After a few days at home, we went to France with the boys. I still couldn’t really walk, so we made some short trips together.


Omaha Beach




Chateau de Fontaine-Henry

So, now it’s back to the usual I think. Boys are back to school, HB is back at work.

Somehow it took me longer than usual to really be back too. So I guess this post is just from me to say hello, and I hope to be back soon with some crafty stuff.

Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Do..nice to hear from you again! I wonder if they used that particular chateau in the movie 'Everlasting' looks like the bad guy's castle. I am not surprised that people gave your beautiful dog some lovin' attention..I don't think I could resist a pat if I were there either.

Leuk, weer van je te horen! En wat ben jij toch een pechvogel. Maar goed, je lichaam zal de rust wel nodig gehad hebben.
Raar hé, om opeens met z'n tweetjes te zijn. Maar, ook altijd leuk (o:
Ik had Fleur ook veel aandacht gegeven, als ik haar zo gezien had. Wat zijn honden toch leuk!
Fijn, dat jullie ook met jullie zoons nog lekker hebben kunnen genieten.
Een fijne week en welkom terug (o:

Hallo Dorien, welkom terug.
Ondanks je ongelukje met je enkel ben je er toch lekker tussen uit geweest en hopelijk weer opgeladen.

Ben al weer nieuwschierig naar je volgende projectjes.

Groetjes, Monique

Looks like you've had a wonderful month (if we don't take that ankle into account).
