Dinner at Canan's - sushi & white wine. Made it an early one cos we were all a bit knackered but then I got stuck watching Democracy Now's coverage of the Troy Davis execution - I was thoroughly glued and appalled, not quite believing I was watching this unfold in America. Hopefully the attention surrounding this specific case helps turn a shocking event into something positive in the future.

The mother turned 65 today - quite ancient. James & Camille showed up in the morning and we lazed around a little, drinking coffee, reading the papers before heading off to th International final - won by Algot, a lively folk duo from Sweden - the two Belgian bands placed 2nd and 3rd so a pretty good showing! I think everyone was happy for the experience of playing in the Botanique anyway so no broken hearts. As well ad J & C - Alex, Vanessa & Eliot came to town for the expo which was really touching. Some of the crew had been paintballing and showed up towards to end so had a quick drink at Bota before heading home to celebrate aforementioned aging - with wine and tiramisù. 1748 - Birthday of Olympe de Gouges

I'm not a huge fan of lifts so when it's a manageable amount of floors I tend to use the stairs, which is fine in small buildings but when I'm visiting a huge office building/concert or conference venue/hotel... I often get completely lost. You'd think the 'fire escape' stairways would be well marked... but this is me getting lost today.

Carlo & Ine wedding and an early morning by my weekend standards as I had to start shooting Ine's prep at 9. After a week of shitty, chilly weather, the sun came out just in time - a lovely day in a lovely place, Fonteinhof in Borgloon (Limbourg region which I had never been to yet). The dancing didn't start till past midnight by which time I was too exhausted to bust a move so packed up my lenses and headed home. More shooting tomorrow. I can't ruin it for the bride and groom by posting shots of them and I have a lot of editing to get through, but I spotted this in the pile for now.

Quick trip to the dentist this morning - I was begging for super strength painkillers/antibiotics... anything to make it go away but she's not 'that' kind of dentist and instead stuffed some algae into the hole! Surprisingly, it did seem to help. Henri came by in the evening for life planning discussions, some good ideas were thrown about and an acceptable dish of pasta was consumed.

Some indoor chilling today - this is all I could come up with. I hate this wall, the colour, the swirly 'effect', the fact it's the wall in my office! Our landlady lived here for 19 years and, though she never will again, is so emotionally attached to it that she refuses to let us paint over it. I've had to resort to some amateur pimping with the fairy lights... hmmm

Back at the desk with an endless urgent to do list - D-11 to Thailand! :) Interestingly, it's sunny in Brussels, freezing but sunny. I didn't leave the house today but I did make a tasty spicy carrot soup. Not that I photographed it, I thought the light pattern on my ceiling was prettier!
