The Mustang work bench

Today I drove the last boxes from my rented storage to my garage. Thank god that's done! I left it empty and that's that.

I also did some work in my garage. The back of a Mustang coupe makes a decent work bench! ;-)

The evening market

This evening we went to a market in the village of Kolhorn, up north. It was getting busy when we got there, but it was doable.

It's an old village by the looks of it. I like.

People were coming from everywhere.

Nice view.

The market was pretty big. Nothing that really peeked my interest though. By the time we left it was getting so busy that it got hard to walk...

Lunch! I'm starting to eat meat again :-)

Back at home somebody was hiding, I wonder who....

OH! It's little boy Silver ;-)

The turd / the lock

In my lunch break I went for a walk to the hardware store close-by with my colleagues Marijn and Wies (hiding behind the car). We came across this car with a giant turd on the roof, funny.

I bought myself a second lock for my garage door. It's a pretty good one. I'll sleep and holiday a lot better knowing this big boy is guarding my treasures :-)

Light in the darkness!

Very early morning (7:30) I had an appointment with an electrician to fix me some sparks in my garage. It took him 5 minutes but now my mains electrical is hooked up professionally.

And there was light! :-)

The dream come true

Tanja's little plant seems to be doing very well. I wonder what's gonna come out...

Diet lunch. Quite nice!

This evening I moved my Mustang to its new location. I am really grateful for being able to rent this space for the past 4 years. It's given me opportunities and fun times that not many people have.

And here it is in its new location: my very own garage/workshop. It's a dream come true, that should've happened 8 years ago in Australia but didn't. I never thought it would be possible in Holland but here I am, I got one :-)

The little castle

The four of us took to Den Bosch this afternoon for a bit of shopping...

... and a bit of sightseeing.

After this we went to meet my mom and dad who were house-sitting at a small fortified house called "Zwanenburg". The buildings date back into the 15th century. Included are fields with animals...

Gardens with lots of flowers...

And a big driveway to get there.

The house looks great on the outside but inside it was not very cosy and personal. Very nice visit though :-)
