The ingredients

I started buying some ingredients for chocolate-caramel pie again. I thought of making 1 but then I thought my birthday is coming up and maybe I should bake a whole shit load of them again...

Breakfast du jour.

The Magic night

My colleague Norbert organised another Magic The Gathering night at work and he did a great job! He got us the cards AND the pizza AND the beer!

We started with 13 players but one person left real quick. Sore loser! ;-) But you know, it's more fun with 12 people anyway!

Joeri and Michael. Michael is from another country called "Friesland". It's north of The Netherlands ;-)

On the right Vince (not me! Another one!) and Geert are playing. Gert is spectating. Vince and Gert are colleagues from Belgium. Great effort for joining in :-)

On the right, above Erik vs Wim and bottom Norbert vs Lars.

Uhm, I forgot his name vs Alin. Cees is watching over ;-)

The Mc Gyver

Lunch view.

When I walked home I saw this grebe parent being chased by a hungry baby.

After work I visited Martina to fix her futon. A thing connecting 2 parts broke.

I did a total Mc Gyver using an old screw and a paperclip ;-)

Feathers and things...

I visited Marjolein this evening. She found a dead baby bird. Now it's dried and ready to be framed.

The bumble bee

Sun rays this morning. Breaking through the clouds. Very pretty.

Bumble bee.

My first ever Ben & Jerry's. I loved it!

The clouds

Licking the windows in the mini van that's gonna take me to work...

My day at work ended totally shit because some colleagues really don't understand that professionalism is a two way street. You know, like everything, it's a game of give and take. And you have to know when to give and when to take. But some people only know how to take. They can reply to your email more than a week later with a question and when you don't answer quick enough they start chasing you. Well, up yours!

I felt quite shit walking home, upset even. Until I saw these young swans. Beautiful new life.

On the ferry ride back it was sunny and the clouds were pretty. Facing West...

Facing East.

Facing North.

My new vice

I went to a DIY store down South to get me a vice. They did not have a vice though. Took me 2 hours with the tram! Bollocks! I deserved ice cream after this. So I ordered this whopper of a cone and the lady filled it. I asked for the topping and she put it on but then when she wanted to take it out of the topping dispenser 1/3rd of my ice cream fell off because it wasn't solid enough. She gave it to me for free then :-)

So then I cycled to another DIY store up North. They had several vices!

I expanded my new tools rack some more.

And I mounted my new vice! YAY!

And with this new vice I managed to make this which is going to fix a friend'd futon :-)
