Want to know more about me? Here goes:
I’m Dutch, live and work in the Netherlands, but grew up in Israel and Germany;
I’m very happily married to my soulmate & the love of my life;
I’m a working mother, I have a son and a daughter born at the very beginning of this 21st century and I try to blog whenever inspiration strikes;
I have two cats;
I have a cool family (as in parents and siblings);
I speak 3 languages fluently but my favourite language is English;
I have loved Richard Armitage ever since I saw North & South on DVD in the spring of 2006;
I have loved Colin Firth ever since he appeared on my TV screen in the fall of 1995 as Mr. Darcy;
I love Roman Holiday, it’s the movie that made me fall in love with movies;
I loved Gregory Peck when everyone else loved Duran Duran and Wham;
I love all things Jane Austen;
I hold a very special place in my heart for David Bowie – heroes live on forever;
I have two absolute favourite books: To Kill a Mockingbird (which I first read at 15) and Jane Eyre (which I first read in simplified form at 9 and later in my teens “properly”).
This blog is about all these things that I love and more. I could write about politics and the environment and real life troubles and although I sometimes do, mostly I don’t want to! So, I guess this blog can be viewed as escapsist in a way. On the other hand: movies, tv shows, books, Colin Firth and Richard Armitage are real, aren’t they?
