Happy Halloween

We made these pumkins and they are now in front of our front door. I dont expect any trick or treaters since this is not a tradition over here. But I like the pumkins.

Autumn holiday for the kids

The kids are in Disneyland Paris for the Autumn holiday, so we have the house and our time for ourselves, so we are going to see Skyfall tonight.
And yes, I had the bottle of champagne for my graduation last friday, a nice bottle of Laurent Perrier.

Yes! I passed

So I passed, with an 8! I am so happy! I started an education and I finished it and passed it, so this calls for champagne, will open a bottle tonight with DH, this has to be celebrated.
In the meanwhile, have not been crocheting a lot, I must be honest and I have been reading the fifty shades trilogy. Must say that it is not the most heavy lecture, but fun to read... I can only hope that Ryan Gosling , scrap that, let it be Matt Bomer, will play the role of Mr. Grey in the movie, if only...

This morning I went to the dentist, no cavities, so that is good news. So I promised myself that I didnt had to do anything and I continued crocheting on our ski hats for coming winter.
This year we had only two big shrooms in our garden, last year we had dozens and no, nothing... Dont know why, but helas, it is like it is, I alwys like them and the animals that feed on them as well.

Have been crocheting this weekend. Still cant show what I am making, but here is a small glimps. Had a fun weekend. We had a birthday party from a friend, so that was fun, great time.
Today we had to vote for the local communities, so I went there, luckily there were not many people so I didnt have to wait.

Last exam

Today I had to come before a jury and make a presentation about the report I wrote. This was the final part of the course I started in March 2011. They well let us know if we passed in two weeks, so I will be keeping my fingers crossed.

Beautiful sunrise

This morning we had a wonderful sunrise, I guess you get them during autumn when the weather is turning and getting colder.
The picture doesnt do it justice, but it was magnificent.

Market and WIP

 This morning we went to the market in Brussels. We want a bigger diningtable and since we havent been able to find the table we want, we decided to have it made. But for that, we needed to look at some table legs and in Brussels is a store that sells them and it is close to the market...
We started by having one of a pancake like snack with honey and feta, very yummy...

We planned on having lunch in a alocal greek restaurant but it was completely full, so we had some tapas on the corner of a street where there were a lot of people standing, and I must admit, they were delicious. Son #3 doesnt like tapas, so he ate a Belgian waffle or better a waffle from Luik (Luikse wafel).
In the meantime I have been crocheting like a maniac to finish a gift, but luckily, yesterday evening I found out that I am out of woll... So I can only pick up some on wednesday... But I guess I will be able to finish them before Saturday, when I want to give them... So you will have to be patient for some pics.
