Subhanallah, it's February already? What have I been doing in the past month? It seems only yesterday that we came back from our most memorable journey and yet now it's already a new month! Yeah, it's been a quiet month with DH travelling around between the Benelux countries. He was back for a day or two then off again for another 5/6 days. This morning he went off to Brussels again for another 5 days, and he just got back from Antwerp on Monday night !!
