Q4 drop in


So I haven't really delivered on my last post's promise. I'm missing around 9 months of memory preservation, and I really, really, have to start blogging again. Apologies to all my devoted readers (all three of you), hopefully I'll be a little more diligent.

So what have I been up to?

- In May we were in London town, where it was nice to understand everything that was said and to be in a city where everything was open until reasonably late.
- In June we went to Barcelona, which is now way up my personal pantheon of wining and dining destinations.
-In July we went to Seillans in Haute Provence, to stay with the wonderful Professor D and Mrs. D at their lovely summer home. L and I want to be like them when we grow up!
-Also in July, we moved apartments! We now live in a slightly more quiet district called the Zeeheldenkwartier, very near the Peace Palace. It's about a 20 minute cycle ride to and from work for me.
-In August, a string of houseguests, CT and BS from Manila, RR from New York and Auntie T.
-My parents were here in August as well! We started out by traveling to Provence (Aix-en Provence, Arles, Avignon and Marseilles). They took a tour of the Baltic with their friends, and after two weeks, we all travelled to wonderful Venice together with Auntie E. It was fantastic.
-Also in August - RT and SW got married in Brussels in the City Hall right on the Grand Place, a church right next to it, and a fabulous dinner in a Michelin starred restaurant in the outskirts of Brussels.

Our very busy summer has turned into a busy autumn, and its been nothing but work for me lately.

Will blog again soon.
