Last of the Easter photos! These are from Cinquantenaire park. It’s a big park with two museums, lots of fountains and statues, an arc de triomph thing and three museums in it. And a mosque. It’s pretty big! It was built in 1880 for the 50 the anniversary of Belgian independence (cinquantenaire means 50th anniversary). It gets a fair few tourists because of the museums, but mainly it’s full of runners from the EU institutions (like me. But I always run in the opposite direction from most people so no one notices how slowly I go!).
I found this corduroy skirt in the back of my wardrobe on my first trip home to Scotland and brought it back. I thought I could do with another plain skirt. It’s really really old, from when I was 20 maybe. I’m not sure it’ll survive Belgium though, I ironed it last night and it’s pretty faded and has a little rubby hole. I could dye it black again, but I’m not sure it’s worth it really. It’s not very flattering on me what with the short arsedness, and despite the flicky shape, it’s not really ideal for curvy hips with, because it actually sits underneath the hipbones, which further shortens my legs. But it’s comfy at least!
