50 and a completely different life...


And suddenly you're fifty, get a tattoo and start a brand-new challenge...

When I stepped into my own surprise party in mid-November last year, I was so upset that I needed another week to recover. Not only from the fact that my daughter had secretly organized all this, but also from the round number 50... I suddenly realized that I have been on this planet for half a century and that I have already had many adventures, both professionally and in my private sphere. A realization in which it seems as if time has flown by and that so many new things still need to be discovered. A consciousness that a lot of energy has already been sucked out of me but that in the right environment I have also received tons of energy and that so I just have to keep amusing myself as my pleasantly disturbed creative self because that's just who I am.

Some presents for my birthday... Does it notice that I like to eat and drink?


Tattoo time... as if a new period is coming...

After my daughter turned 16 last summer, we agreed to get a tattoo together, not just one, but one that lurks a meaning... After a lot of thought, research and drawing work, it was finally time. On December 30, 2019 our tattoo became reality...

A new job...

As you could read in several previous blogs, I went back to school to get my diploma of assistant chef. After several practical tests, each with their partial certificate, I started my internship in a restaurant in January 2020 with enthusiasm, but also with a small heart. I can tell you that's a lot different than preparing food during class... Turnering in a restaurant is really art and fly work to get the right ingredients on the plate, especially when several hot and cold dishes need to be served simultaneously. After my internship and with my diploma auxiliary chef in my pocket, I was also allowed to continue working there immediately.
