After the rain

After the storm...

Today was a busy day. Ran around all day like crazy to bring the girls to and pick up the girls from their activities, doing the groceries in between. And it rained all day so I got wet every single time I went out. Not really an interesting topic, is it?

I haven't done anything creative over the last two weeks for obvious reasons, so I can't show you anything new either. I have some old stuff which I haven't shown you yet. But the mere fact I haven't shown it, most likely means there was something wrong with it. Otherwise, I'm sure it would have made it up here already. And though I plan a post on "mishaps", I don't feel like writing about it now.

Maybe, I could write about the dryer which died earlier this week (the timing couldn't be better) while I was drying a load of bath towels. And about how the repair guy sort of lost his mind because he had to take the whole thing apart in order to find out what was wrong with it (I'm still convinced there must be an easier way to get to that pump) only to conclude he didn't have the parts with him to also fix the problem. After which he had to put the whole thing back together - sigh. Will it ever work again, I wonder - he really took it apart completely. Also, since the guarantee expired a couple of months ago, I had to pay close to 90 euros, for a dryer which is still not working and which won't be for another week because that's how long it takes to order and get the parts. So now, in our living room, besides the usual mess laying around we also have laundry drying. Not really exciting, is it?

I could write about how K. is feeling much, much better and finally got his appetite back which I'm really happy about since he lost a lot of weight. I wouldn't mind to loose a couple of pounds, but I think there are healthier ways to do so...

I also could mention how M. got the best compliment ever from her teacher this week, who was totally surprised to find out M. didn't speak a word of French a little over two years ago. She simply thought M. was a Belgian francophone...

I could write about how little H. almost knocked her own tooth out yesterday at gym - a baby tooth luckily - so while I was at it at the grocery store I had to bring a special order from the Tooth Fairy as well, just in case...

But I don't want to write about all that stuff - I just want to show you these shots, taken in between showers and all the running today - a 15 minute time span to be exact.

I promise I'll never say again our court yard is dull and boring. It's lovely. Even on a rainy and soaking wet Saturday...

genoten van deze mooie foto's, vind ze prachtig, zo met die druppels, klaar om te vallen, doch nog effen twijfelen of ze het wel zouden doen, wetende; dit is het einde!!
