Something we lack.

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
A verse of the song "Time" by Pink Floyd

Only 41 days to go before we celebrate James' first birthday.
Only 26 days to go before we get to see Lee Evans live in Sheffield.
Only 11 days to go before we sign the contract of the house.
Only 5 days to go before my band plays the Woodstock aan de Maas Festival in Rotterdam, Holland.
Only 3 days to go before my mom's birthday.
Only half a day to go before this one's over.
Only 6 hours to go before I see James & Cate again.

So much time. And so little time.
It sometimes gets me. But then it lets go.
Good. Because time has to move... from time to time.

Have a nice day... while it lasts!

James @ Oma

James is on holiday in Aartselaar... And as you can see in the picture, having a splendid time!

Cate and I went for a visit Wednesday evening. It's actually quite incredible; we didn't see him for only 3 days, but we miss him tremendously already! Ooh soo happy we were to hold him in our arms again :-) We think he's actually grown in those 3 days... :-) The paddling pool Oma bought for him proved to be a good idea as well, he splashed and splattered like a professional.. ehm... splatterer.
Oma was also very delighted to announce a première: James crawls! He's not very stable and good at it yet, but he does it! Well done Master James!
Enjoy the Agrumes, mate, and see you again on friday! :-)

New Layout + Some news!

A new blogitem, together with a completely new blog-layout.
Do you like it?

Short newsflashes for July:
- James had chickenpocks! He endured them bravely; he's now better than ever! (making walking gestures, nodding no, and blow-spraying his slobber allover you when you encourage him :-)

- The house we bought will finally be ours on the 5th of September! Hooray, we've ruined ourselves hurrah!

- I put our band's website in a new jacket:

- Crosstown Traffic played a showcase for the Woodstock aan de Maas festival last Thursday; on our (new) website you can find the recordings of the complete 30 minute concert. (also on YouTube by the way... :-))

- I still like Opera.

- I had a one week holiday in July, and I feel I could do with another one...
