The very busy day

I caught the tram to go to Mic at 8:59. Mic needed to pick up 40 big garden tiles. About 20+ kilos a piece. First I was gonna be just muscle but since he has discovered that his driver's license ran out he also needed me to drive. I didn't complain! First time using a trailer and it was going to be filled with 800 kilos of concrete tiles... :-)

We managed to get it all done. Mic and Mickey's little girl Noortje made this bed. It was VERY tempting to go have a nap in it.

After a quick stop at the Gamma to buy wood for my work bench that I'm about to make we picked up Marjolein and drove to my late friend Nantko's place. Friends were welcome to browse through his stuff and take whatever they wanted. There wasn't much for me except for 2 cds. Some people who visited were led by greed I think...

Marjolein stayed for dinner. We got us some really nice Thai food.

It was a very, very busy day. But Mic got his tiles, I got my wood and Marjolein got her empty wine bottle cases. That's all good.

Hernia what?

Waiting for the tram to take me to the hospital in the morning. I was gonna have a gastroscopy due to stomach and chest pains.




The "theatre".

It all went very well. Nothing scary was detected thankfully. I do have a sliding hernia diafragmatica though, yes, really. And that's s'posedly causing the discomfort.

I was picked up by Marjolein who had to look after me the rest of the day.

Me on the inside :-)

I made friends with about 100 birds...

The snow man

I only noticed this snow man this morning! I loved it but it was already falling apart...

My tram couldn't drive all the way to the station so I walked the last bit. I found out why when I got to the station; an earlier tram (actually the one I should've had) had de-railed!

I got to see my soon-to-be new work place. Our office is rapidly becoming too small so my division is moving out because we are so specialllll. ;-)

I'll be sitting on the closest corner there on the left. And my big plant will be in the middle at the front :-)

The Vondel park walk

I woke up a bit early today, 8:15 it was. I looked outside and it had snowed yet again! I thought I'd take my chance to get some nice photos so I got dressed and walked over to the Vondel park which is close to where I live.

Here are some of the photos I took:

I walked for about 2 hours I think. When I came home it had just began melting. I was happy i went out early :-)

My little oak tree is quite happy as well! It's making lots of little leaves.

My house looks nice but I need to really wash my windows again soon...

I'm growing a few new plants again.
