There's a new cutie in the house...
Couldn't resist this pretty 'galinha de angola' (chicken from Angola). It's a little stool, but you can also use it as a little side table to put a cup of coffee or a glass of wine...
Off to do some baking now, it's my son's 10th birthday today! Time for cakes & muffins (to treat his friends and pro at tennis) and preparing the pancakes (he invited his peers who live in the compound to come over for dinner and pancakes it will be *smile*).
The party is planned for another day.
Take care & beijos,

While it's been a nice & sunny day today, the clouds are appearing now and it starts raining. Time to think about our last holiday...

Good memories from our trip to the north-east of Brazil (Bahia) where we visited some friends and had a business event to atttend in Salvador.
Playing golf at the Iberostar Praia de Forte golf course: beautiful!!
Now it's time to do some more cooking & baking for the International Festival at my son's school tomorrow (I'm 'doing' the Dutch booth of course). Still a lot to do... so I'm off now!!
What are your weekend plans?

The last post was # 100... I didn't even know!

And then I left you all for quite a long time, not even on purpose...

OK, I have been quite busy with a visit from friends, a trip to the north-east, but not busy enough to abandon blogging and abandon YOU!.

Anyway, as from post # 101 (this one) on, I promise to be a better blogger!!

I do have a little make over to show you today... After living in this house for a year and a half (with the idea of moving in December 2008), I didn't care for colour on the walls, just thought the plain white was fine (the previous house ánd the previous apartment were full of colour!). But, we're still here and whó knows how much longer (...) so I decided to give it a go with colour again... orange this time!!

Have a look at the result:
I'm happy with it, love the brightness in a pretty dark house!
I'm off to do some shopping now (it's my son's birthday next week, have an international day at my son's school which includes a lot of baking Dutch goodies of course), have a sunny day and 'talk' to you soon!!
