The awesome stuff

(Click to enlarge)
I took my camera to Haarlem today to try out shooting in RAW format. That went quite well. I too a shot of this little coot. I liked the water around it.

Hello Jesus.

There was also a very big crane.

Late arvo we went in to town for a walk and I discovered this awesome toy shop! Nothing like those converted ones where half the shop is now taken over by computer games and kiddie jewelry. No, this one had a HUGE selection of Lego, Playmobil, model cars, boats and planes. Even toy trains!

The best thing of course was this kids work bench by Bosch. I'm a fan of DIY and also of Bosch. I almost wish I had a kid now ;-)

They also sell awesome bicycles!

On the market I saw a stand selling proper pies! I will test one next time I'm there :-)

We walked home when it got dark. Some streets were very cosy.

The line-up

The line-up at the bakery where I sometimes get lunch was mental today.

My day was pretty alright apart from my Christmas tree not being delivered and neither were the two model train I ordered. Bit disappointing that was. I also worked a bit late because I wanted to finish something. At least I got that done, all's well!

When I got home I was dying for some thai delivery and emptied my wallet to see how much I had left. Exactly 1 euro short for a chicken satay AND a main dish. I was devastated!

But then something made me look in my wallet again and I found a whole whopper of a 2 euro coin! I'm saved!

Have a good weekend!

The seminar

I attended a seminar on mental healthcare today with 2 colleagues Ira and Bjorn. Two other colleagues were behind a little stand to talk business. From all 5 sessions/speakers only 2 were interesting, really.

The seminar was in the World Trade Centre Rotterdam.

Bring it on!

Ira (right) and I drove back with Bjorn (left) and we were in time to meet other colleagues for food and a movie.

My boss invited everybody to the new Sherlock Holmes movie. A very nice thing to do! I enjoyed the movie a lot.

More cake shop DIY

I had that awesome salad again :-)

In the evening I had another DIY session at nic's cake shop. She now also has her own facebook page!

Anyway, I closed off the inside of the kitchen wall with pieces of wood that were left over. This still looks crappy but it's 100 times better than looking in to a big hole there. Also nothing can fall next to the little sink now.

Dispenser woes

Like this?

Or like this?

I think the dispenser should be at the sink and NOT at the shelf for 2 simple reasons:

  1. It's closer to your hands
  2. You'll wet the shelf if you have to move your wet hands there. And sometimes people like the shelf to be dry because they need to put something on it while they wash their hands!

It's not exactly rocket science but still a few people keep putting them at the shelf!

I walked over to Mic for dinner before squash. Somebody is working hard on a bigger and better energy bill!
