birthday 2012

Hi, how are you today?

Long time no see. Sorry about that. I’ve been very busy these past few days. On saturday son 4 had his birthday party: a mini lan party with some of his classmates playing soccer on the playstation.  The livingroom was a mess of tv-sets, playstations and power cables all over the floor, boys scattered around the place on various chairs and hardly a place left to sit down. They had a lot of fun according to the noise levels 🙂

Halfway we left them to it to go and buy my birthday presents

This lovely pink case

lovely pink camera

They are both pink because I like the colour but also because the boys will be less tempted to borrow it from me! Hopefully it will result in better quality pictures.

On sunday was my actual birthday – 48 already. We had a fun afternoon with the family. Do yóu think we are a bit goofy?

On monday it was Queensday here and we were off to the “vrijmarkt” (on Queensday everyone can sell their goods and food in the streets) We needed lots of household items for the new place to furnish. We went to Kapelle first and bought a car load of stuff for next to nothing. The whole family helped out, pairing up in teams with different shopping lists. It worked very well; we got most of what we needed. In the afternoon we went to Heinkenszand and Wolphaartsdijk where we found some more items. By three in the afternoon we were very worn out and needed a rest and some food. We had a sit down at the village hall for a drink and some french fries. It was very crowded and a band was soundchecking to play later, also people were drinking heavily so we didn’t stay long.

When we came home we had to sort through a mountain of stuff in the living room. Luckily we had some boxes and the kids helped so things were soon organized and the boxes put in the car to take into storage the next day.

I’m still recovering, my muscles ache, my back hurts. I’m so glad the boys are home (spring break) to help out. No walking the dogs for me this week.

Now I’m off to make breakfast. Fedde’s coach is coming this morning. Later today we have a dentist appointment I’m dreading: there’s always work to do on my not so sturdy teeth.

have a great day.
