waiting with vogue


Today, I've been doing absolutely nothing. The kids and I spent yesterday in the city centre, in the wonderful area around Groenplaats square (above right), just walking, enjoying late lunch, etc. We were at this Italian restaurant we sometimes go to, next to the Cathedral of Our Lady (above left), when an Icelandic family walked in and sat down at the table next to us. Not often that one meets Icelanders in Antwerp! Of course I visited my favourite shop close by, Dille & Kamille (entrance above), and I bought a new latte bowl. When you love latte you can never have too many bowls!

As I write this hubby is somewhere in the air, on his way to Atlanta, where he has to wait for five hours before catching the plane that takes him across the Atlantic Ocean to Brussels. He told me that waiting would be boring, boring, boring, but hey, he would have Vogue! (Those were his exact words.) I asked him to buy for me the September issue of Vogue US at the Atlanta airport so he can entertain himself looking at Kate Moss's wedding photos while he waits. wink He has been away for three weeks and I'm not going to tell you how much I miss seeing those sandals in the hallway. Of course I miss him too! Tomorrow he'll get two of his favourites: apple cake and pizza. I think he'll be very tired after travelling 7563 kilometers/4700 miles so it'll be a day of relaxation and no blogging.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

  8. Hi Lisa! Happy that you got your hubby back. It's not always fun being a grass widow (if that is even an expression in English, I've mostly heard it in Danish and Swedish).
