Risky business!

I wore this Guinness shirt for the first time since I bought it, many, many tears ago. It never fitted, until today...

Ruud, Eva and Mic came by to have dinner and play a few games of Risk in the evening. Here's Ruud and Eva.

And Mic and I.


During the first game I was hardly a part of the game.

During the second game I managed to conquer and keep Australia and from there I fulfilled my assignment and won! I had to conquer 24 countries.

We also played a third game that Eva won.

No more moving boxes

Today I found a peanut with 3 nuts in it. Never seen one before. I liked.

I put the boxes from IKEA together. It allowed me to put away my Lego that was occupying the very last moving box I still had. Now I have no more moving boxes. Thank god.

Dinner with Eva

I had dinner with Eva. I had to make her laugh for a picture.

It worked ;-)

Lovely to see her again, very nice dinner at my old regular Italian around the corner of where I used to live before I moved to Australia.

The rust

During my lunch today I was visited by a swan. I shared some of my lunch with it.

After dinner I took the bus to IKEA.

I bought two of these to be able to put away my LEGO and get rid of my last moving box.

After a super quick visit I took the train one station up to go to my car.

Had to walk past the old sugar factory.

There it is, my little pony ;-)

I wanted to get the taillights out because there's a bit of rust around the edges I wanted to get rid of. Well, that's what I thought at the time...

It took me a bit over 30 minutes to get this taillight out because it was incredibly stuck. I wanted to be careful as I didn't want it to break.

And then I found out that the edge of the opening had been rotting away. The rubber gasket was stuck and pulled away some of the rotted metal. This is a bit shit. Not sure what to do yet...

CS-Tennis 2013

Saw these geese on my way to the tram stop in the morning.

In the evening I joined the ChipSoft tennis tournament. I'm not good at tennis but I like playing it. I was very rusty though and had never doubled before. This was my first game with Chris.

This was my second game with Janneke.

Here Norbert and I are watching Sylvester play.

It was a fun evening :-)

I had pancakes for breakfast and I also had pancakes for lunch ;-)

I noticed something was missing this morning. They took down the NDSM crane... I hope it's for restoration purposes...

My colleague Martin has a funny USB stick-man ;-)

On my way home I thought this looked nice.

The reflective day

Today was a day of reflection. Thinking about things that are happening right now and letting it sink-in.

In the afternoon I visited Diewertje, one of my newest friends. That was nice. Then I went home and made pancakes. Which was also very nice. Now I'm full ;-)
