Watching soccer in HQ

As of now, every photo will be available in a larger version by default.

My breakfast. Well, it was around lunchtime really...

I stopped at Nic's cake shop (Cake Loves Coffee) when I went shopping and I ran in to Anna. It was nice seeing her.

Late arvo I walked in to town to see Holland play Denmark in Mulligans. I was accompanied by Miriam, Alex, Max and Alie and it was fun.

The outcome of the game required strong measures.

That's how people drown in our canals. They get pissed and feel they can swim around the world. When their alcoholic bodies are in the water they realise how freakin' cold it actually is and they get cramps and stuff and slowly float to the bottom. (Not these 2 thankfully but it does happen...)

The card

The harbour is being prepared for the HISWA 2012.

After work I met Marjolein and we had dinner at Waga's close to Rembrandtplein.

After watching the movie "Dark shadows", which is very nice btw, we went to Mulligans.

When I came home I found this card from my mom and dad.

The baby bird edition

Baby swans.

Baby ducks.

Baby grebes. I'm actually glad I see these 2 because it's been a while and after a bit of an incident with the arriving ferry last week I was scared one had drowned.

The calorie count

The baby swans are all four still alive.

This patch was planted full with little young shrubs. Then they forgot about it and now the weeds have completely overtaken. I think they only way to fix this is by taking everything out, including the shrubs.
What a waste...

I went on the cross trainer when I got home and burned about 180 calories. I thought I'd count the calories I ate and drank today and posted it on facebook.

So instead of the 2500 a grown man apparently needs, I only got 1747 all together. And this is why I'm losing weight :-)

The little house on the prairie

I accidentally took this funky photo of my sidewalk...

More flowers on my rose now.

I had dinner at Mic's before we went to play squash. They live behind that big house.

Noortje is starting to learn to use cutlery. It's a steep learning curve it seems ;-)

Fare well, aunty Jo

(Click to enlarge)
I went to Ilse and Cassie's today because I had to attend a wake for my aunty Jo who had died earlier this week. My mom and dad were there as well and Cassie made very nice pancakes.

(Click to enlarge)
One of the cats liked my lap a lot. All I know is that this cat is not Ukkie. I can't tell the other 2 apart...

(Click to enlarge)
The wake was in the catholic part of the church building where I went to sometimes as a kid. I never liked going to church. I cannot think of any useful contribution it's given me to be honest.

And then there is my sister's car. With now decorated side mirrors in Dutch colours because of the upcoming European soccer tournament. Yeah...
