Life lately

Reading In Bed by Sue Gee
Ellis Gourmet Burger
Bloody Birthday + Zaventem Park
La roche du chat

Left to right, top to bottom: 
(1) Reading in bed... I've been doing a lot of that lately. You can find some of the things I've been reading lately here. I haven't read Sue Gee's novel yet, but with such a title not much can go wrong; 
(2) My reading buddy: Avalon; 
(3) and (4) After having spent several hours on a Brussels' terrace to enjoy the first days of summer under a canopy of trees, Gilles and I tried the vegetarian burgers at Ellis. A delightful evening;
(5) and (6) After my visit of the abandoned haunted convent in St. Anna ter Muiden, I accompanied Ingrid Jorgensen (author of the travel story Go East) to the nearby village of Sluis;
(7) Bloody Birthday was the first horror movie I ever showed to my baby sister Jennifer. Because we are both in a nostalgic mood lately, we opted for a movie night in bed with this film. This is a screenshot of Bloody Birthday;
(8) Enjoying the sun and my sister's company in the park of Zaventem;
(9) and (10) Gilles and I went for a walk in the forest to see the viewpoint La roche du chat which translates as Cat's Rock. No cats were seen, but we had a close encounter with a wild boar.

In other news, there are two new calendars available with my boyfriend Gilles Vranckx' illustration work. Check them out. You may like them ;-)
