I went to my new garage this morning and guess what? The new electricity meter was already put in. Cool! Now I can get hooked up to the power grid :-)

My first job in my garage was sweeping the floor. I think it will take some more sweeps before it's all out though.

The new garage

I had an appointment with the seller to get the keys of my new garage. I was welcomed by a mother duck with a whole binch of little ducklings, nice :-)

Voila, this shows the size a bit better. I had to drive there with my loan car...

More diet food in the evening. Weight is dropping into the 96's now.

The new hole

YAY! Had to make a new hole in my belt. I'm getting thinner! :-)

On my way to work I dropped off my car to have the mirror fixed. Hopefully I'll have it back before the weekend...

Getting fuel.

I came across this photo of a fox recently and saved it. I just love foxes. Such beautiful creatures!

I went for a drive in the evening, needed to get fuel. The least fun part of this hobby ;-)

The drive went very well along beautiful countryside.

Every single time I drive this way the beams close on me at least once... Always!
