The tree

I didn't feel well last night and wasn't feeling too great this morning either. But in the afternoon it got better.

The weather was fantastic and early evening I left to see Simone and her kids. The tree in front of my house isgrowing leaves already!

It was nice being with Simone and her kids. So nice infact, that I stayed for the night :-)

The first baby birds!

The canal behind me while waiting for my tram in the morning. It looks very eighties I think.

The experiment goes on. People waiting to board the ferry have to wait on the green squares. The middle will be painted red.

I saw the first baby birds of this year! They always have four I believe. I scared them a bit when I came close, sorry...

After work I had dinner with Simone and her kids and early evening we went to IKEA.

The Bandido

Some of my colleagues have a serious surplus of time on their hands I think. At least sometimes it results in funny shit like this ;-)

Ruud and Laurien came over for dinner in the evening. We also watched the soccer game AZ-Ajax. I favour AZ and Ruud favours Ajax. Ajax won unfortunately...
It was a fun evening with a lot of laughter :-)

The healthy lunch

Lunch! I'm trying to eat healthier with more veggies. I put some smoked chicken in it as well and it tasted great!

I worked late. It was very quiet on my way home.


Arriving at Central Station.

Lovely sun

On the ferry home...

... in the sun.

They are now colouring the station-side of the ferry as well. This should tell people where to stand. I hope it works, it's becoming increasingly busy...

The gift

While walking to Simone's tonight I suddenly noticed a loud buzzing above me. When I looked up I saw thousands and thousands of little flowers on a tree and a small army of bumble bees feasting on them. It was a beautiful thing to see. Bumble bees are so not aggressive, it makes it easy to come close. I was happy to have seen this :-)

I was trying to fix a stupid setting in Google Chrome on Simone's Windows computer, a search plugin that didn't like being removed. This is the look of "Why the fook is it not going away?!"

Simone's little boy gave me a little paper boat tonight. I imagine these things have different meanings to kids than they do to adults. I like it and I think it's very sweet of him.

Fire in the hole!

This morning I met Mic at my car. I wanted to take it for a spin to see if it would still drive after I took the LPG kit out. Also I wanted to test if the electric choke worked. Therefore I wanted to start the engine without the air cleaner on it.

This was gonna give us some unexpected fun as you can see below...

Starting the engine for the first time today. Petrol inside the carburetor caught fire nearly immediately. It scared the shit out of me. This image looks bad though. It's a still from a movie, flames were actually quite small.

More like this. And there was Mic, filming away while my engine was on fire ;-)

Time for a second try, things like this happen yeah? Oh, oops.

It went better on the third try and in the end we even managed to take the car for a spin. I think ignition timing isn't great... Needs investigating.

The village where my car is parked is close to the airport.

I can't just play with fire. I can also make decent food ;-)
