Trimming the hedge

I was going to travel a lot today. First thing I did was get in to town to pick up the squash tournament trophy. It had the recent winner engraved.

Then I took the train to Alkmaar. I got on at Sloterdijk station. They changed the square infront of the main entrance a lot. Nice high-rises as well.

I enjoyed travelling by train again. Very relaxing.

I went to my folks to trim the hedges. It was hard work ;-)

I am quite pleased with the result, but more importantly, so were my mom and dad ;-)

My dad is recovering well from his fall off his bike. The concushion is taking longer though.

I asked my mom to smile for the photo... nuff said.

Simone came to pick me up which was very nice of her since she had to come all the way from Amsterdam. So I took her out for a lovely dinner in Landsmeer.
This was my desert. Toffee icecream wrapped in marzipan. Awesome.

The rose

The roses I bought are still very nice!

Scratched the Mustang...

Big-ass clouds this afternoon, over the new, old Shell tower. The tower is actually called ADAM these days.

In the evening I went to work on my car but received word that the garage-landlord bought a new Mustang so instead of working on my trunk I drove over to come look. It's a 2006 model and it looks very nice. Lovely colour too.

My car starts and drives so much better since it's been to the garage! It started running on the first try tonight. That hasn't happened like, ever!

And then.... I fucked it up a bit while reversing into my garage. The rear-right fender scraped against the side. Thankfully only the paint had come off, in a spot that I had painted anyway so I'll do it up and you won't notice anymore. But I shall be more careful when reversing next time!

The construction

Walking to work past the construction infront of the HEMA office. Great clouds again.

Fixing the trunk

This needs no further explanation I think ;-)

I noticed awesome clouds while waiting for the tram on the way home.

I made 2 photos and couldn't decide which one is better so here's the other one.

My rose is blooming.

In the evening I went to my car and started sanding away rust.

But the battery of my drill ran out soon and I was done... This may take a while.

Roses, painting and chicken nuggets.

Because it's a bank holiday overhere and lovely weather and Simone had to work, I bought her flowers to cheer her up :-)

I also wanted to surprise her by painting the shed. This is before.

This is after. Nice!

In the evening Milan and I made us all chicken nuggets.

Good stuff!

Cutting branches

Running time again! Just not so much today. I felt my body wanted to take it easy so I listened to that.

The back-neighbours complained about our tree's branches being in their yard and they want it gone. So I cut them. And that's that. Hope they are happy with less tree in their concrete yard.
