I was born in 1971, so I was a teenager during the good old 80ies! I loved movies (still do as a matter of fact) and so I thought it would be fun to make a little list of my favourite movies from the 80ies…

A happy 2017

Posted on Updated on

Another fresh new year is here…

another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt and fear,

to love and laugh and give.

The bright new year is giving me

to live each day with zest.

To daily grow and try to be

my highest and my best.

I have the opportunity

once more to right some wrong

to pray for peace, to plant a tree

and sing more joyful songs.

William Arthur Ward


With this beautiful poem from William Arthur Ward, I want to wish all of you the happiest and loveliest new year… a good health, exciting adventures and why not win the lottery this year 🙂

So cheers to a good, fab and lovely 2017!

Love, Kathleen

Have yourself a merry little Christmas…

Carols in the distance,
laughter everywhere…
I can smell Christmas
floating in the air.

Candy canes and bon bons…
angels top the tree.
There’s presents over yonder.
one for you and one for me!

Tinsel wrapping round and round,
candles light the night,
making Santa’s journey
sparkly and bright.

A very merry Christmas
to you and your family my friend…
May your New Year bring happiness.
and may the joyful times not end.

Love, Kathleen

Jane Austen’s England… looking for fans to back this project!

A couple of months ago I went to a lecture in Dordrecht… now the fact that this lecture was followed by a delicious high tea, may have persuaded me to actually make the effort to drive all the way to Dordrecht. But the topic of this lecture really appealed to me… the lecture was about Jane Austen and more specifically about travelling in Jane Austen’s time.

Now I won’t go into details about this lecture again… you can read all about it in this post. The reason why I look back on it now is the fact that the woman who gave that lecture, the lovely Karin Quint, is looking for Jane Austen fans to back her Kickstarter campaign.
