WWTK - a little bit of this and that

I've been so bad at blogging this last while ... but since it's Wednesday and all I have to do is answer questions I'm going to do my best to answer and go and read all the other answers.

Thanks for hosting Scriptor and Kenzi!

Here we go ....

Q1. Where is your favorite place to go on vacation, and if you could choose any place to go where would you go?

According to Himself and me, a holiday is not a holiday if it does not include the beach.  Sadly we have not been on many of those since moving back to Belgium.  We spent a week at the Italian coast in 2011 .... it was lovely. Since it's been so long we are really hoping to get away this year and have been thinking of going to Greece.

Q2. What is your favorite hobby?

Reading! I don't have any other hobbies, okay, other than baking but I don't do that nearly often enough to call a hobby. So reading it is. I love reading! Wish I had more time to read and more money to buy all the books I want to read. (sigh)

Q3. When you need to get out of the house, what do you do?

I take the dogs walking nearly every night, since I do this on my own it's the perfect  time to have some 'me time' without feeling guilty

Q4. What is your go to date night idea?

What the hell is a date night? Seriously, I can't remember the last time we went out, alone (meaning just the two of us, as opposed to one of us, on our own, with friends).  On the rare occasions that we go out together we tend to meet-up with friends.
I guess, if we had to have a date night it would be dinner, drinks and maybe a movie.

Q5. Do you have any tattoos, if so what of and where?

No I don't ... and not because I have anything against them.  But Himself, who is covered in them is not thrilled with the idea of me getting one. Talk about double standards! But I'm thinking of getting one, in white ink, on my wrist .... we'll see ....

Right, now it is your turn to link up! Have fun!

Spinning round and round

Can you all just pretend that I haven’t been gone for so long?

Aaw, Thanks I knew you guys were great!

It’s crazy busy at work, so I don’t get to blog while I’m here. At home I’m busy too plus we only have the one laptop which means that if I wanted to blog I would have to get up at 4 in the morning. and as much as I love blogging I love my sleep more. Sorry, but at least I’m honest.

Not much news going  form this side of the planet. Kids had ½ term last week. Both of them were sick L In fact, Cat is still sick so Himself is taking her to the dr. today.

I won my weight loss bet Yay! my friend Noreen will be buying my ticket for Bon Jovi … super excited about that even if it is only in June.

There was a huge diamond heist at our airport yesterday. I’m sure you heard about it.
O and have you been following the news about Oscar Pistorius?  Shocking stuff!

And really that is about all I have for you. See I told you not much has been happening here.
I’m hoping that Himself will decide to go out one night so I can have the laptop to myself and catch up with reading all your post ….

Until then Stay Happy!

We Want To Know # 2

I missed last weeks 'new' Wednessday We Want To Know but not to worry I'm taking part this week.
Thanks Scriptor & Kenzie for hosting it:

So here are this weeks questions and answers:

{no. 1} Did you watch the Superbowl? Do you tend to like sports or do you only watch them if it is a big event or something a friend or spouse is in to?

No I did not watch the Superbowl … on account that I live in Belgium. However, I do know that the Baltimore Ravens won .. cause my blog buddy Amber is from Baltimore. But, I guess the Superbowl would be the same as say the Rugby World Cup (even if it only takes place every 4 years), then the answer would have been heck yes! Love me some rugby! Especially my beloved Springboks!

Sorry did I lose you there for a minute … my bad. Back to the list of questions ...

{no. 2} What is one thing you really like but cannot understand how or why other people do not?

Olives…. I don’t know how anyone cannot like olives …. they are sooo good!

{no. 3} Describe/explain one thing that annoys you on daily basis.

Rude people! Like when I get out of the lift in the morning and say ‘have a nice day’ and if I’m lucky one person might grunt something back.

{no. 4} What is one food you've been really into lately or something you have really craved at one point?

Cake! Is cake food? and Carpaccio. The cake I’m avoiding on purpose and the carpaccio I don’t make it at home, it’s something I like to have when we go out for dinner.

{no. 5} Name one thing you are saving or want to save money for.

A car

I have been so good -  I’ve been avoiding stuffing my face with all things yummy. I’ve been walking, every night!  And it’s worked!  I’ve lost 4.2kg/ 9.2llb since I posted about my weight loss challenge.

But today, today I want this:
