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,a grandmothe and 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!

Friday's Fave Five, Quality Time

It's THAT time of the week again, it's Friday! Time to look back upon the week that has passed and share some highlights. Friday's Fave Five is hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.

1. There was a package in the mail for me. I was kind of surprised because I didn't order anything, so I checked the address and yes, it was for me, woohoo! Inside were two sets of two appetizer glasses which apparently I won in an online competition!

2. My computer which had been to the shop for repair ( since December?!) has finally been reinstalled. It's better and faster than the one I was working from up until now. When I got it back, it was completely "naked" and some of the programs needed to be reinstalled.
My brother in law was a great help talking me through all of this, it was a blessing to be able to turn to him for help!

3. A good night's sleep with fresh sheets on the bed. Somehow we always seem to sleep so much better when the sheets have been changed!

4. We went for a swim at the local swimming pool on Tuesday, and we're planning on doing this every two weeks!

5. My absolute favorite of the week: some extra quality time with my hubby. My husband had a quiet week this week, so we got to spend a little bit of extra time together.

Hello Jientje! I wanted to hurry and come over here before Friday was over for you. How fun to get a surprise in the mail. Glad you had some good extra time with your hubby! Yippee for your computer being fixed! Have a good weekend.

Surprises in the mail are the best!

I adore fresh sheets on the bed, too. It does make you sleep better, I believe.

Quality time with our hubbies is always a highlight!

Those appetizer glasses are really pretty! I love fresh sheets as well. I changed mine today so I'll be enjoying a good nights sleep tonight :)

Willow said...

Extra time with your husband sounds like a great week. Swimming? I would enjoy that!

MaR said...

Congrats on winning something special!! I love the smell of fresh sheets.
I am not a swimmer, I need at least 30ºC water temperature and most pools hardly reach 27ºC...
Happy weekend!!

How nice! I also like surprise packages in het mail. As long as they are not bills!!! ;-)
This sure sounds like a nice week!
Big hug,
your little sister

Susanne said...

I love getting stuff in the mail. Anything that is not a bill is a good thing! ;v)

I am so with you on the fresh sheets. Love crawling into bed when the sheets have been changed.

Nice for the extra time with your hubby.

It's the little things, isn't it? A surprise in the mail, some extra time with a loved one - these are the things that make life worth living and lift our spirits. :)

And isn't it amazing how good a little exercise makes us feel? Which makes it even more surprising how reluctant most of us are to do it in the first place! My favourite piece of gym equipment was restored to me this week, and I practically kissed it! LOL!
