A farewell party for Nantko

Today was Nantko's funeral. It was going to be a very long and tiring day.

After the service and quite a few beers we went to have some dinner at 't Fornhuis in the Utrechtsestraat. It was very, very nice!

And then we went back to Mulligans to celebrate Nantko's life.

We celebrated a lot. At some point rounds of whisky were coming in so fast I couldn't keep up and my glass just got fuller.

Mic with Nantko's brother Wim.

Gerrit, Nantko's sister Eef and Marjolein.

The Tennessee Studs were playing, one of Nantko's favourite bands, and mine as well. Party music all night.

It was a night Nantko would've loved. There was laughing and there was crying, great music and drinks just kept on coming.

Cheers buddy, this is farewell. You will not be forgotten.

The re-pot

Taking the ferry across to work.

I re-potted the plants my colleague Tanja gave me a while back. Much better now.

In the evening I went to Mulligans with Marjolein.

Nice music and nice company but one person was annoying the fuck out of me and I'm afraid it may need addressing at some point...

Tangled up

It's quite amazing how headphone cords become all tangled up. I understand how it happens to some degree but sometimes it's insane how tangled up they are!

Meeting G.

A tiny little insect somehow landed on my desk. I gently helped it outside again :-)

I  met Gerrit in the pub after work. I also met Guinness.

The family hug

A truckie rammed the neighbour's gate and broke it. It's fixed now but 1 beam is 40cm shorter ;-)

I had dinner at Mic's place before we went to play squash. There was a very big family hug. It looked painful but I believe no one was injured.

We're getting a King!

Had to go to the hospital today to see a throat-doctor. Too complicated to explain but the outcome is that I'm gonna get a CT scan of my nasal cavities.

In town I spotted this "Space invader".

Shocking news: The Queen unexpectedly announced she's stepping down in 2 months to make way for her son. The Netherlands will have a King again!

I went to Mic's folks to have dinner with mic and his family. Later at Mic's place we worked on the list of people who needed to be informed about Nantko's death. I took my brand new drill home. Very nice drill :-)

Nothing, really

Took it real easy today. Still feel very sad about Nantko's death, kinda numb. The most exciting thing I did was browsing the IKEA website...
