We had an amazing time in Brussels, thank you so much to Marilou and Frederic for being such great hosts and letting us stay in their lovely flat.
We seemed to be on the move a lot while we there, but mainly we were wandering and talking, doing a bit of window shopping, deciding that Belgian children are much better dressed than British ones, that kind of thing.
My birthday on Sunday was lovely, I had a special breakfast complete with candles on a bread ring. Jon and I went to the Natural History Museum then slowly wandered back via the European Parliament, a few shops and a late lunch at Cafe Arcadia. That evening we went to see Sigur Ros who were fantastic. I'd never seen them live before, which made it extra exciting. We sat high up on a balcony which was a little unnerving but we had a fairly decent view of the stage. If you get the chance to see Sigur Ros, go go go!
Then it was back to reality and sitting around in London for the train. London is hard work, there are good bits, but it's hard work. We ate well in Leon though, and I enjoyed browsing in Muji and Liberty.
