Fixing the toilet

Simone stayed last night but we slept like shit. To make things perfect she needed to get up for work at 6:30 and leave just after 8:30. After I made her breakfast I didn't feel like going back to bed so I got ready for the day. I spent my morning clothes shopping. In the afternoon I went to my car but not to actually work on my car. There are things bothering me about the toilet. Paper was in plastic on the very dirty floor and there was no toilet roll-hanger. So I bought a shelve and I put up together with the toilet roll-hanger that the garage-lord had bought. Now it's not bothering me anymore ;-)

I really felt like soft-serve so I got me some!

The drinks

My colleagues Sylvester and Ernst and I organised after work drinks and snacks. It was fun! Very cool of people to come!

I liked the colours of the containers in this photo. The containers are actually houses for stuents. They have bathrooms, electricity and even air conditioning. One container is a laundry...

The little Christmas tree

I found this little Christmas tree standing on the side of the road yesterday when I went to squash. I wanted to take it in but when I got back it was gone. This morning I saw it standing under a bush next to somebody's front door. But later in the evening today it was on the side of the road again and I took it. I think it's not gotten enough water as it's not as green as the one I bought for myself and watered during the holidays.

I hope it likes it next to mine...

Amazing sky again when I left my work.

Wildlife in Amsterdam...

I played squash with Eva tonight and we had dinner afterwards. The fish and chips was very average which means I'm not ordering it anymore.

Going home I saw this car. It's an electric car. Looks pretty awesome!

It's a Fisker. Never heard of it before...

The beautiful sunset

Going home after work. The low sun made a beautiful light.


In the evening I went to Simone. She doesn't live here. This is Central Station ;-)

Church opposite the station.

The yummy dinner

Ferry people, disembarking.

Water-view on my way home from work.

When I got home I exercised for 30 minutes burning some calories. What did I eat today? Well, for breakfast I had cruesli with milk. Lunch was a mini baguette with brie cheese and a small bottle of fruit juice. And the above picture was my dinner. That's tomato with mozzarella and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and some pepper. And low fat yoghurt with cruesli. I also had one slice of bread (with nothing on it).

That dinner just sits wonderfully inside me :-)

The playground

Simone was going to a park with her little boy and his friend and asked if I wanted to come along. which I did very much so. It was fun and surprisingly relaxing even though I was surrounded by tons of (noisy) kids :-)

This picture is from guest blogger Simone who dared me to put a pic on of me holding an Ajax soccer ball. You have to understand that even though I'm really not that much in to soccer, I really do not like Ajax. I mean, seriously, they call themselves sons of the gods. Dudes, get-fucking-real!
Anyways, here's the pic. I am holding the ball. It's a pity my plan to make it disappear in the water failed ;-)

Excuse me while I go wash my hands now. Not because I held the ball, I fixed that with showering 5 times when I got home, but because I just typed "Ajax". Oh eeeeew I did it again! ;-P

And to finally give myself that feeling of also having done something useful this weekend I paid my car a quick visit and relieved it of a bit more LPG-crap.  I also found the PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) port on my carburetor (not in this picture) and of course it's too small for the hose coming from the engine (in this picture). Something else I'm going to need to figure out...
