Happy birthday Jan!

Today is my mate Jan's 40th birthday so I wrapped him a pressie which made many people laugh. Why?! ;-)

I drove along with Nancy and Paul to see my mate Jan for his 40th birthday. Jan didn't know I was coming along!

On the way to Germany we stopped a few times and one of those times Nancy saw that there was a geo-cache hidden at the car park so we went looking for it and she found it! It was very cleverly hidden in this table...

We met the gang in town and after a brief visit to Jan and Susanne's new place we all went to the camping. It was fun seeing everybody again and indeed, Jan was very happily surprised to see me :-)

I was able to borrow a little green tent.

All of Jan's family was there and a few friends.

I bought these at a gasstation along the way ;-)

The BBQ was lovely and everybody had a great evening!

Today was our annual BBQ at work. The weather was good!

So were the drinks ;-)

And the food!

It was a fun BBQ :-)

Here's one more of me and Ira enjoying our second Mohito, this time we ordered one with ingredients closer to the original recipe.

The movie

My work organised a move evening again. I always have dinner with Tanja before the movie. Can't watch a movie on an empty stomach eh!

Tonight's movie was "A most wanted man". I liked it.

The check-up

Today I finally had time and good weather to drive my car to the bi-annual roadworthy-test. And it passed! Big yay please! I was very happy with this. Now I can take it out on the road again :-)

The guys at the garage were awesome. All over 45 I reckon. This means they had plenty of knowledge on old cars ;-)

The fuses

CAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!!!! What a way to start the week. I'm ready. Gimme!

I had lunch with Tanja. We enjoyed some sun.

After work I went shopping. Rain clouds were building up.

It made my neighbourhood look lovely.

In the evening I went to my car. The main reason was that I wanted to check the fuses. They all seemed OK. I hoped I would find a broken one which could explain a few electrical things not working...

I also had a closer look at the rubber strips on my door, the ones that keep the water out. Well, they should. Mine are so dried up that they're cracking. They need replacing badly...

Another fun surprise was this hole. I think it's in my cowl vent. Always problem spot numero uno with Mustangs... Probably with most cars from that era. Oh well, I wanted one, now I got one ;-)

The other side

After all the DIY from yesterday it was good to take it easy a bit. Simone and I went to a small market in Purmerend and walked around a bit as well coz the shops were open.

We lunched on a terrace. I had an incredibly nice goat's cheese salad. It was delicious.

On the way home we picked up Milan and his mate at the swimming pool. The pool was behind a building that I have only seen from the railway running behind it. You can see the little railway bridge on the horizon. For some reason this factory has always drawn my attention during the 25 odd years that I've been travelling here by train. Dunno why...
