Blogmas 6 … A day at Brussels Expo

First of all … SORRY that I’m a day late with writing this blog !

Agribex

Agri…what ? Well, AGRIBEX ! Agribex is an expo in Brussels about the agriculture, new tractors, new technologies. It’s an event in Brussels every 2 years in December arount starting around the 6th.

So this year it was time to make a visit to this 2 year event.

For me it’s been a while since I been there, because when you go in the weekends it’s always so crawded, so bizzy. Too much people, too much noices, etc not ideal for this autistic girl.

Now I had a day off on Wednesday the 6th, the first day of this event. A day without families because it’s a schoolday in Belgium, and most people won’t drive to Brussels with all the traffic jams around Brussels. I live like 35 min away from Brussels (when there’s not lot of traffic, so it’s not that far.

We had no traffic getting in Brussels so we were toooooo early there at Brussels Expo.

‘Sinterklaas’ morning

December 6th, is also know here as ‘Sinterklaas’ morning, like I told you in my blogmas of December 5th.

On this morning we have a lot of chocolate, speculaas and other candy that ‘Sinterklaas’ has brought.

So this was breakfast, not healthy but for one day a year it’s okay I guess.

After breakfast, it was time to leave to Brussels to Agribex.

Tractors, and more tractors …

First stop at Agribex, off course seeing all the new tractors and machines. As a country girl, a farmers daughter, I can enjoy this when there’s not a lot of people.

So I really enjoyed this day watching all the new things about Agriculture, seeing new John Deere tractors. Sometimes I really wish we had a John Deere at home. I always found those were the pretty ones, more pretty than the Fendt, Deutz, and others we have.

So here are some pictures of the day. Okay, it’s kind off strange for a lifestyleblogger and fashionblogger that I’m now going to show you some pictures of tractors and farmanimals :/ SO I still hope you like this blog.

Oh and we got an ice cream at 10.25 am at the New Holland infodesk. Oh yeah, I can officialy say that yesterday was such an unhealthy day. I couldn’t finish this icecream, guess my stomach was on strike that it was tooooo early for some cold sugar bomp.

Some little tractors from a high school in Belgium

Fendt

The reason whey there was a gold Fendt tractor, it’s was a celebration of 50 years Fendt.
Sorry for my look, it was soooo hot and still wearing my very warm Zara Rodeo jumper. 

Deutz

Claas

No Agribex without Cows

Tiger

How was my day?

Well, it was a big surprise that there were not many people. For me that was a big HIT! For the first time ever, I enjoyed this day.
At the infodesk of John Deere I bought 2 iron plates for in my new home. I’m going to show you them later in my home 😉

Fendt also had so great toys at there infodesk, like this mechano style tractor. Really loved it, and the price was not that bad. But just had no cash with me, so had to  leave it there.

So yess, this autistic girl had such a nice day ! No headaches, but a lot of muscles pains like other days.

Free stuff

Off course there’s no expo with companies without free stuff to take home. From New Holland I got 2 balloons, which are soooo cute.
Other things I got is this pencil and gum with Einstein on it, some balloons and candy from Fendt and lot of infobrochures.

By the end of the day I was so tired that I couldn’t write this blog. Also I had suchs horrible pain in my muscles. So horrible. My medications don’t seems to work and I have more and more pain each day. Guess it’s time to find a new doctor. 

Thanks for reading, and sorry it’s not the usual #lifestyleblogger and #fashionblogger post for blogmas.

Love, Lucy xx

Blogmas 1 … Perfect weather for a hot chocolate milk

The last countdown to Christmas is here, it’s December 1st! I can’t believe how fast the past weeks went by.
First time I try this but I really love the idea of writing a blog everyday of the month.

 

Well, let’s start with the first BLOGMAS of this year !

Blogmas

December 1, 2017

Yesterday we had the first snow here in Belgium. I was really surprised by the amount of snow that fell in the afternoon while I was at work. I really love the snow, watching it fall down makes me happy.

When I see snow, I instant think … HOT CHOCOLATE !

Oh yeah, this autism girl really has a big love for chocolate milk. Every morning I drink  a glass of Oatly chocolate milk. I just can’t start my day without chocolate milk.

For my hot chocolate I’m a big fan of the Nesquik powder to put in my hot milk (most of the time hot Oatly milk).

IMG_5404

Last year I bought this little box for my hot chocolate in March, I guess. In this box I had some leftover because the weather started to be very good here, way too good for drinking a hot chocolate milk.

This year I bought the ‘dark chocolate’ version of Nesquik to give it a try. This one…

IMG_5407

But honestly I didn’t like this powder. The taste is a bit strange and it doesn’t taste like my normal chocolate milk. Yess, here we go. This is a very negative thing about having autism. If it doens’t taste like i’m used to, than it’s a NOOOO.

Normal people with autism doesn’t like to try new things, but I do. I can change the brand of a product I used to or in this case try the other product of the chocolate powder. Honesty, most time I don’t like the change and I’m back to the brand/product I’m using for ages now.

Yesterday I was in the Lidl store here in my area. That dark chocolate powder of Nesquik was not good for me. So I needed another powder because I really wanted a hot chocolate milk.

In that Lidl store I found this chocolate powder, so I bought it. (the monkey took my attention, I have to admit)

IMG_5406

Tonight I’ve giving this powder a try by making me a hot chocolate milk with some hot Oatly oat milk.

IMG_5408

OMGosh this was soooooo good. It was like drinking a nice glass of Oatly chocolate milk but than a hot milk.

IMG_5409

It’s such a good powder for chocolate milk. Oh yummie yummie.

One thing is clear now … from now I will always buy this powder insteat of the all know Nesquik. I’m getting a Lidl fan here, since we have a brand new store.

So wasting by trying stuff I’m not like?

Well, no I’m not wasting the product if I don’t like. I give it to family who likes it of want it. Like this powder of Nesquik, I will make hot chocolate milk for when my family comes over (maybe it’s better with normal milk for me).

If I buy another brand of cookies, muesli, etc and I don’t like it … well some animals here at home are happy with it.

At this moment, I think I’m giving some other products from Lidl (#lidl Belgium) a try. I will be good for when I’m moving in February. Now I have to go to a few stores to find the products I need. It will be so good to just have to go to one store and a store for catfood.

Going to a supermarket is so stressfull for me. I always have to take an extra piece of medication before I go and I have to take something for my headache when I get home.

Less stress, hopefully less pain and a better life with autism.

And you?

What’s your favorite brand to make a hot chocolate milk?

Lidl?

Do you guys have a Lidl supermarket near you? What are some other products that are worth trying?

Blogmas … till tomorrow!

I hope you all like my first blogpost of Blogmas this year. Please like if you liked it and please RT my blog on Twitter and Bloglovin.

Tomorrow I have to work the whole day because we have a sale in the store, specially for ‘Sinterklaas‘. The 6th of December is a Childerns day when they get a lot of present and chocolate. More about that later, first I have to survive my workday with a lot of pain. Hope it will be a good day.

Thanks for reading !
