Een hond in een potje - A dog in a box

There I sit.  In a car, big tears, a crazy smile on my face. In my hands a plastic box. The plastic box with my dog. My dead dog.  

I have cremated my faithful friend. No digging graves, no self manufactured funeral, no, just a cremation, simple. We tought it would be so beautiful, as comforting and calm. Later we will scatter him on spots that he found so beautiful.  

I know the whole cremation proces only from movies.  A comedy, in which the urn survives on all possible manners and splashes on the last nick of time, and a romantic drama in which the urn knows his spot on the chimney. 

My friend I get back in a white plastic semi sugarbowl.  Just, quite simple, no madness, no emotion, normal white and tightly.  Quite clear.  I just can cry my eyes out. You dread already a week for that moment. The moment of the phone call: You can pick up the ashes of your dog Remy. Nevertheless you expect the assistant of the vet hand you over a justifies emotionally box, but unfortunately, this illusion splashes from each other the moment my hands touch that box.

Later, with the box clasped in my hands, after I've whined like a baby, laugh shoots in.  I have a dog in a box.   

Daar zit ik dan. In de auto, dikke tranen, een brede glimlach op mijn gezicht. In mijn handen een plastic busje. Het plastic busje met mijn hond. Mijn dode hond.

Ik heb na 15,5 jaar afscheid moeten nemen van mijn trouwe vriend. Na veel discussies en wikken en wegen besloten we hem te laten cremeren. Geen gat lopen scheppen, geen heftige zelf in elkaar gefabriceerde begrafenisdienst, nee, gewoon simpel, cremeren. Dat leek ons zo mooi, zo rustgevend en kalm. We zouden hem dan later uitstrooien op plekken die hij mooi vond, waar we samen fijn gewandeld hebben. 

Ik ken het hele crematieproces alleen van films. Zoals die komedie waarin de urn op alle mogelijke manieren drama’s overleeft en op het laatste nippertje uit elkaar spat en een romantisch drama waarin de urn een vaste plek kent op de schoorsteenmantel.

Mijn vriend krijg ik terug in een witte plastic semisuikerpot. Gewoon, heel simpel, geen tierlantijntjes, geen emotie, gewoon wit en strak. Heel duidelijk. Ik kan wel janken. Je ziet al anderhalf week tegen het moment op. Het telefoontje: “U kunt de as van uw hond Remy komen ophalen.”. Je verwacht dan toch dat de assistent van de dierenarts een emotioneel verantwoord potje aan je overhandigd, maar helaas, deze illusie spat uit elkaar op het moment dat ik de pot in handen krijg.

Na, met de pot in mijn handen geklemd, even een flinke pot te hebben gejankt, schiet ik in de lach. Ik heb een hond in een potje.

Wish list: Mi Moneda

I love Mi Moneda. Last year I've got my first necklace for my birthday from my dad with a gold medium pendant. A view months ago I bought a small silver one myself. I prefere the coins with texts on it. For Christmas I would like to have some new coins. So that I can create some other combinations once in a while. Which one do you like the most?

With love,

New stuff

When I read, I read by day.  In the evening, I had no place with light, where I could read my magazines and books, which I really love doing. Today I went shopping at a recycle store and within I found a black, small pretty light. He stands beautiful behind the bank in the corner. Together with the newest Jackie he is guaranteed for a lovely relaxing evening. (For only 7 euros!)

With love,


Ki Boots

Which one is your favorite? I added the last pair on my wish list! 

Thank god it's almost time for Sinterklaas, Christmas and my birthday!

For two houres you let us experience another world. Are you coming back soon?! Please?

YouTube: Sophia Grace and Rosie ft. Nicki Minaj

This is a video you must see! Really, I got tears and laughed my heart out at the same time! A video was posted on YouTube while Sophia is singing Superbass from Nicki Minaj. They were invited to the Ellen Degeneres Show and they got a big suprise! Compliments to Nicki for her support to those great girls!

Book/Movie: De first day/One Day

I really wanted to have this book, when I first saw it, lying in the stores. That one must be a part of my bookshelf.
 Now a few months later, I still haven't read it. Last week I saw the film version comes out soon. I'm really curious, but I am such a type that wants to have read the book first. So my plan is to start with One Day immediately after my last exam next week! 

With love,


‘I can imagine you at forty,’ she said, a hint of malice in her voice. ‘I can picture it right now.’
He smiled without opening his eyes. ‘Go on then.’
15th July 1988. Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways.
So where will they be on this one day next year? And the year after that? And every year which follows?
One Day is a funny/sad love story spanning twenty years, a book about growing up – how we change, how we stay the same.

Victoria Secret Show 2011

I have something to confess. I love the Victoria Secret shows!  A fiew shows even stand on my laptop.  No, not because of there long slender legs, who make you horribly jealous. I find the atmosphere tremendous!  Everybody laughs, enjoys and they are having so much fun with each other.  The Victoria Secret show is so much more than an usual fashion show with many lingerie.  The beautiful costumes make you look much further then some girls in their underwear.  I look forward to the entire show, here already a little preview!  

With love,

In Memoriam: My best buddy Remy

Je was mijn allerbeste maatje, mijn allerbeste vriendje..

Vandaag was onze allerlaatste knuffel, ons allerlaatste pootje, het allerlaatste kusje.. 
Je zal altijd mijn beste vriendje blijven en ik zal je altijd blijven missen..
We zullen altijd bij elkaar zijn, daar geloof ik in.

Geniet maar daar, lekker spelen, rennen, zwemmen en springen zoals we vroeger samen deden.. 
Lekkere vent van me, ik ga je ongelooflijk missen..

You were my best buddy, my best friend..  
Today was our last cuddle, our last paw, the last kiss..  
You will always be my best friend and I will always miss you..  
We will always be with each other, that I believe.  

Have  a lot of fun out there, play, run, swim and jump as we previously did together..  My pretty boy, I will miss you terribly.
