I know, I have been unblogfaithful – again – and some of you have still hung on and kept checking if I am still here. And yes I am. But this fall has been a real roller-coaster ride, so I have never known what to write when… Thus I have stood in the shadows instead… But here it goes:

We have had a great couple of visits this fall. First my dear bro-in-law from Montreal who flew in and out of our place on his way to an from Sardinia. We had some good times together catching up for living so far apart. The boys are crazy about their uncle! 🙂 Naturally he updated and upgraded us computer- and Apple-wise, as always. Thanks B! 🙂 One beautiful Sunday we visited Ghent together:

Then we had my dear friend Anneli visit from Sweden with her Stefan! She is really a true friend – no matter what! We had some really good times together too:

Oooops – there was a lot of shots from downtown Brussels, but you have to admit that the European capital is beautiful! 🙂


Then there was BEAUTIFUL Sardinia for our fall-break:

Part one with my dear Tove from Åland who taught us how to be real beach-bums [can you actually believe we have NEVER taken a sun-trip ever???] among other things we learnt how to benefit to the fullest by hiring sun-beds and parasols and living la dolce vita on the beach all day long:

part two with a Mother-Sons Day:

Nonno and Nonna’s place…


Dear Hubby finally arrived on our fourth night in Alghero – sheer happiness/craziness and trick-or-treating!

Dear Hubby only had our hot beautiful weather the first of his three Sardinian days, so I am really glad we had a full day on the beach that day. After 16 years together I still did not know that there is a beach-bum in dear M as well:

And quite some visiting with Nonno and nonna – the boys’ Italian grand-parents! 🙂

Ciao bello!
