About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Meet my parents

 
I’m going to be very busy ( again, yes!) with my guests. Today happens to be Mother’s Day here in Antwerp. My parents are coming over for the weekend, and I intend to spoil them a little. It looks like we’re in for some very nice weather, so we might go out for a walk together…
Anyway, I’m not going to be around the computer much. I hope you’ll forgive me?
 
 

 

In the mean time I’m sharing some pictures from previous visits, to give you some idea what we’re up to today. Have a great weekend!

I miss the Rubens market on the big square. I used to go there when I lived in Holland, to take pictures of the people in costumes (and have wonderful fresh food at Sjalot & Schanul).

Tell mum and dad I'll spoil the cat! OK?

@ Everyone: Thanks for all the nice comments an the Mother's day wishes. We had a great weekend, and I so enjoyed their company. I am so happy my father recovered so well from his surgery. He looks ten years younger, happy, smiling. A huge difference. The weather was nice, everything was just perfect!
@ Quilly: My father does not cook,he's making orange juice here. He used to do that when we were kids, and I always make sure I have oranges when they come.
