Just so busy ... before heading to France

It's been a crazy busy few days ...

Saturday was the day of the party, so we cleaned.

Sunday was about nursing a wee hangover while revamping the photography website until midnight.

Monday I was up early and over in Brussels working at the NGO... a day that included time spent with Paola.

Tuesday was another day spent working in Brussels, to make up for the fact I'm off summer-vacationing in France as of tomorrow.

Today ... today was all kinds of things.
It was updating information at our mutuality in the city - it's the institution that organises repayment of doctors and dental fees from Social Security here.

It was also about buying pink sneakers for my broken-down tendon that protested the sandals I wore to the city (and about accidentally buying some pretty girly shoes for those moments when I need to go out as a well-dressed woman, as opposed to that photographer creature who occasionally wears deliciously inappropriate pink sneakers.

Sadly, the day ended in hospital.
A friend of ours has been put on a morphine pump for managing the pain of her 17 year battle with cancer. The morphine has made a huge difference and she surprised us with how good she is looking. They kept us there talking for an enjoyable couple of hours and it was okay, even though the last time I was in an oncology ward it was about spending time with my mum.

So tonight is about packing for 10 days in France and it might just be that I haven't had time to think about that yet.

More from the road where internet time will be incredibly limited.
Au revoir!
