Busy, busy, busy!

It is so surprising. I still get a few readers every day, although it has been many months since I wrote anything new on this blog.

Yes, I blame work for this. We are understaffed for the moment and the most busy period of the year is looming on the horizon. Last week I was 4 days out of 5 abroad (Geneva and London, as those who follow my Facebook will know) and the remaining days were filled with meetings, assisting colleagues and dining with clients. It felt as if I hardly got any proper work done.

But before the really busy time will be upon us, I will take some time off, starting next week on Wednesday afternoon.

Then I will pick up Zai, my lovely Thai girlfriend and her sweet darling daughter Korya at the airport in Brussels. I already booked a mid-week stay at Centerparcs and Disneyland Paris. We will have three weeks of fun. I will cook some Belgian food for them and I will be treated with delicious Thai cuisine made by Zai.

So this weekend I gave the house a good cleaning, prepared Korya’s room, put the car through the car-wash and even found time to cook me a real autumnal lunch (grilled beetroot, parsnip, turnip, carrot and fennel), a recipe originally invented by Jamie Oliver.

Now I count the hours till my darling will be in my arms.

One week has passed

One week has passed since my lovely Thai Girlfriend has flown to Europe to meet me. Last Wednesday I picked her up at the Brussels Airport and drove her home to my place.

Since then we have been visiting Antwerp and the surrounding area. She has been making me wonderfully tasty Thai food and I have made some Belgian food for her. We really match together very well.

Today we visited the “Kalmthoutse Heide“, which is a heath area in the north of Antwerpen, close to the Dutch border. We had a lovely walk together and despite the rain, she liked it very much.

Tomorrow I have to be back in the office for one day, but I will rush home to sample the lunch made by my darling.
