#Leonie is a woman over 40, she could be your neighbor. After her divorce, she builds her new life. With neighbor Mandy she has dinner appointments of the good kind: Mandy cooks! Love also comes around the corner, with all the consequences that this entails.
Leonie's kids were with Erik all weekend, and Mandy had to work, who was supposed to come home deep into the night. So Leonie had the whole day to himself. She had had a whatsapp conversation with Demi that was lyrical about her little baby brother, and from Dagmar's side, the pictures of little Siem continued to flow into her phone. One cuter than the other. Siem in the bath, Siem yawning, Siem sleeping next to a stuffed bunny. Leonie couldn't get enough of it. She decided to visit her parents, that was too long ago. Apparently, that's what her father thought. “Gee, who have we got there? Could you still find your way?” he said jokingly when Leonie came in through the back door. “Yes, sorry, I've been busy,” she grinned. “And now you're bored and you're thinking, “Gee, I still have parents, let's go by there?” said her mother. When her mother tried to make a joke, it always sounded as if she meant it serious and Leonie knew that there was definitely an undertone in that she meant what she said. Leonie decided not to bite. “Yes, I dreamed of you last night and I thought: they really exist! So now I'm here to check that out.” “Coffee then?” said her mother, who already got up and walked into the kitchen. So Leonie didn't have to answer anymore.
She plowed down on the couch and looked at her father. “So Grandpa,” she said. Leonie's father immediately began to shine. “Well, there's another one, right? And what a beautiful little boy it is!” Leonie's mother walked into the room with a tray of coffee, put it on the table and immediately picked up her cell phone. She had the thing, but she didn't do much with it. “Leendert, how does that work?” she said already giving the phone to her husband. “What do you want to do?” he asked patiently. “I want to show Leonie those pictures of Siem,” she said. Her father pressed a little on the screen, and then the whole folder of pictures of their newest grandson came on the screen. Leonie had most of them already through Dagmar and Demi, but she understood that her mother just wanted to brag about her grandson, so she played along. The “oh's “and “ah's “weren't airborne.
After visiting her parents, Leonie drove by the supermarket for some groceries. Mandy was supposed to come to her for brunch the next day, so she wanted to get some extra hot stuff. She also got an easy meal for herself, she didn't feel like doing her best for herself. In the evening she hung around on the Internet and thought about going to watch a movie, but she had no good for it. Actually, she felt pretty tired. She got into bed in time. In mind, she prepared the table for brunch, and secretly her head wandered into exciting things that might happen the next day.
