christmas parties with nosy family

It’s almost that time of the year again … Christmas !
And i absolutely love christmas, i really do. The lights, the smell of the christmas trees, the songs that go along with it and of course the presents. Who wouldn’t love those 🙂
But besides all those wonderful things there is one thing i would rather skip … Every year the same question at all the family dinners ‘How is your love life doing ? seeing anyone yet ?’ and every year i have to give them the same answer ‘no i’m not seeing anyone at the moment’ or anything in the likes of that. And as a custom they make the same inappropriate jokes they make every year.

This year for a moment it looked like i could have answered their question differently.
Because for a moment i thought i found someone. To make a long story short …
I saw someone i thought was interesting, so i fussed about it for weeks and i finally managed to ask him out. Then we went on a date and he was really interesting and we had a lot of common interests and whatnot. At the end of the date i kissed him, we kissed.
We planned another date, all went smoothly until that one horrid moment when he got my name wrong. The man is completely infatuated with me, to the extreme as where he can’t take his eyes off me ( which kinda bothered me near the end), and then he gets my name wrong … Yes that kinda stuff happens, yes he might have been tired, but still.
Maybe i’m just the one making excuses, but in the end there was no spark at all, not from my side anyways. And please don’t think i’m judging the man just because he got my name wrong ( and i really haven’t given enough background info but this post would get to damn long if i did), because i really do like him a lot, but maybe just not enough.

So no dear family i am not currently dating anyone, so no i don’t know if they have a rich father. And i certainly don’t care what you think about me being single, or what my future husband should be like.

Maybe it’s a bit early but happy holidays everybody 🙂
let’s all enjoy the festivities and good food ^^

My vintage camera affair

It all started with a normal affair, a teenage crush if you will. It happened the normal way, Girl meets Boy, Girls wants Boy to notice her. Girl has a slight interest in photography. Boy offers Girl to go buy a camera together. Girl says she loves Boy. Boy starts to ignore her for the rest of time.


So that’s my story, the sorrow and heartache have long passed, for it was only a teenage crush. But the moment we went to buy a camera that is where my whole affair started.
Me and my Diana.
The beginning of my analogue love ❤
Taking the pictures seemed somewhat of a challenge to me, i’m artistic enough to compose a good picture, but working with a toy camera was not as easy as i expected. Some pictures turned out wonderful, other just failed miserably. But I’m not so easily defeated so i kept trying and trying and eventually bought myself another camera at a car boot sale for 2 euro (which was a bargain). from that moment on my love for the vintage camera grew even more. I love the sound of the shutter opening and closing, I love the smell of old leather and dust, I love the history that’s behind every single camera I buy, I love the way it fits in your hand whether it’s heavy or light. The pictures i take are just a bonus.
