Putting the steering wheel back on

Early morning I went to my car to put on the steering wheel and maybe even take it out for a spin to see if everything I took out was still working. Earlier this week my garage-lord texted me that he wanted to discuss something. Apparently it was about the walls he'd been putting up. I do actually quite like them and they leave plenty of room for my car.

This needs a steering wheel...

And there it is again. Looking lovely and wonderful.

Simone and Milan came by and we went for a drive. Unfortunately I found out my speedometer cable is not connected properly. I had no idea how fast I was going, which basically made my car illegal to be driven I believe. I have to fix that now... But, it was a fun drive!

After I got home I had a quick shower and then I was off to Patricia's place for her birthday. There were some amazing cakes to try and other friends to chat with. It was a nice but quick visit as I left already after 1,5 hours to go to Simone's place again.

Glad this day is over...

View on my way home. Professionally, this day was utter shite. It cleared up in the afternoon when I started working on something else with my Do Not Disturb sign on. The 4 'o clock beer mellowed me down and my lovely Indian take-away dinner tonight cheered me up.
Hello weekend! :-)

Meeting Mic and Gerrit

I met Mic and Gerrit after work. It was time again for Guinness.

And it was also time for shoarma.

And then we went back for more drinks and laughter. The pub was not very busy, perfect. I had a very fun evening :-)

The early morning

Here are some snaps from my street early morning when I go to work. This is the canal I live on.

This is the new building at the end. There used to be an old folks home there before...

And this is the Leidsegracht. I wait here for my tram.

In the evening, Simone, the kids and myself went to have dinner with the in-laws.

I don't like that it's dark when I leave work. But that's what it will be for the coming months...

The other towel hanger

I fixed the towel hanger in the kitchen. The second one came off a long time ago and it was annoying me a lot. All fixed now!

My mom gave these lovely candles to Simone. It makes the place even more cosy than it already is :-)
