24 hours ...

an old soldier remembers, originally uploaded by - di.

24 hours ago we were about to leave Lut and Maurice's, having eaten the loveliest dinner. Accompanying the food was a red wine from Montepulcino and we finished up with a special sweet red from Hungary.

And the food was heavenly!

It was an evening of laughter and good conversations, some in Flemish and sometimes I understood a lot.

Last night felt like a reward for a very long day ... 'the' birth day.

Jessie had prepared all party food in the morning before biking off to the park with the kids, leaving Gert and I to bring the My Little Pony cake, the cupcakes, the 3 punnets of strawberries and etc on the bus.

It was an afternoon of dodgy weather but the trees mostly protected us. It was an afternoon spent talking with the parents of kindergarten friends, and catching up with Amanda , Simon and Paola .

In contrast, today has been a quiet day and I've spent most of it here at the laptop, selecting photographs for the art exhibition in September. They want our final selection very soon for press kits and etc, so that's my project of the moment.

Wish me luck - the sculptor, the 2 painters and the other photographer are seriously talented so I'm searching my folders for the best of the best.

Thanks for having us, it was a lovely day and... Can I have the recipe for the cupcakes? C's bithday is coming up...

Di Mackey said...

Lol, no. They mysteriously disappeared, Simon.

Thanks Kay. Fingers crossed :)

It was a pleasure, Paola. I passed your request on to Jessie, the cupcake queen in our place.

Here's wishing you lots of luck. But of course, you'll dazzle there!

Now, I must go back and see that early morning shot of yours in Rome.
