We are glad to inform you that Koen and I will participate in this music show as dancers.
Friday and Saturday are already sold out, but for tomorrow Thursday there are still some seats available.
It was the first day this year that I had to wear my very thick winter coat, this morning the temperature was -2ºC and the forecast announced snow for next week. It's still one month until Winter officially comes, but with this weather we are already in the mood.
Thanks to the Folklorissimo festival, we will be able to enjoy Swing tomorrow at the Grand Place. Swing It Brussels has gathered numerous swing dancers from all over Belgium for the events that will take place tomorrow. A very special one, organized by Easy-Swing, will be a flashmob at the Grand Place at 2pm.
If you want to participate in it, check the coreography on the following video. If you click on it and see it in Youtube, you'll see the several parts with explanations by Andy Spitz.
I wanted to write a post about this already some days ago, but the daily (and non-daily) tasks mercilessly pile up and it's difficult to find the moment to transfer pictures from the camera and then upload them to Flickr. If I don't do it now it will never happen so I won't delay it further.
At the Stitch 'n Bitch meetings I used to feel kind of jealous becase some of them were talking about things like purl, cable and stockinette and I didn't have the remote idea of what they were talking about. I've been crochetting for a little bit more than two years and always envied how knitted garments look. Crochet is great for small pieces, for blankets, for rugs, but let's be honest, it doesn't look wonderful for swaters or socks. I've been secretely planning for months to make a sweater or a jacket and for that I needed knitting; well, I should say that I needed to learn knitting.
I also included the Tweet Button. I should have done it earlier, I know, but better later than never :)
After delaying it due to no reason (well, yeah, a lot of things to do), finally I installed the +1 button on my site. I tried it and it works. You are welcome to use it anytime you want.
This week I am the assigner of the team. It's a task which everybody at work hates. The good thing is that we can work from home the whole week (instead of just Thursdays in my case), what saves a lot of time for me, time that I would be spending in the public transport. The other good point of this is that we work from 8 to 5, so I'm free relatively early to jump out to the coubled streets. Yesterday I decided to go shopping to Rue Neuve (a pedestrian street full of shops) but I got annoyed and stressed because at 18:20 they were already pushing us out of the shops. I've been here for almost five years and I haven't got used yet to the shops opening hours (I wonder who goes there, mainly students and retired people, I guess).
