Kasteel Doorwerth is located 16 km up west from where I live. It takes 20 minutes ride by car. This castle was my husband’s playground when he was a child. He grew up in the village of Doorwerth, which is only 2 km from this castle.
Two weeks ago I went to Paris with my mother and two aunts who are visiting me now. I lost count how many time I come to this city. Some friends of mine live there which makes it easier for me to give the city a visit. And being a self-declared Francophil I really love this city of light as it offers many things I am interested in: good food, art, beautiful architecture/city scenes to capture and of course the melodious language itself. In this chain post about Paris visit I posted a thread about a hidden gem last week.
Angelina Jolie’s preventive double mastectomy dominated the news yesterday. By sharing it she intends to raise awareness about the disease which was quite succesful.
I have been spoiled to the bones by my daughter today at Mother’s Day. This morning she stood by my bed with a menu card for breakfast. I chose for caramelised banana and yoghurt along with a cup of tea. She prepared the breakfast herself. On the breakfast table she gave me the presents (a cook book, a pot of candies and a shopper) and a card.
