Today was a good day.

When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that today would be full of good and interesting people ...

It began with a political breakfast where, by chance, one of the political folk had brought her new friend - which is the name given to boyfriends or partners over here.

It turned out that he was a stunningly good photographer and we spent most of the 2 hours that followed exchanging information about cameras, jobs, best places to go and all kinds of other interesting things.

We could talk because he was a Belgian I mistook for an English man, so perfect was his English.

From there it was home for one more look through the wedding photographs from 1st September before burning them to cd and handing them over.

It took a couple of hours to be sure then that was done.

Our next stop was Lut's and there we spent a marvellously relaxed few hours, talking of all manner of things with me surprising myself with how much Dutch I understood.

Home and I found an email that will take me to a South African commemoration in West Flanders as a photographer on Thursday and another mail that will take me to visit with a lovely friend over in Dendermonde.

Suddenly the week is filling up and I have two old friends flying in from New Zealand in a week on Monday for 4 days ... hmmm must fit a spring cleaning in there some place.

Today was a good day.

Spring cleanings in autumn weather don't mix. I think you could skip it and let 'the others' do it.

PS: We Belgians can understand every language except that of fellow countrymen, this is our curse.

Uh huh Manictastic - you surely only pretend not to understand all the dialects. I have enormous faith in the ability of Belgians and languages.
