She made it !!

Nina was ‘home’ at 4 am this morning…… after a gruelling trip that started 7 am the day before. All the trouble was caused by heavy snow in large parts of middle Europe, bringing traffic to a halt in quite a few countries. Anyway, she’s with her family now, we…

Home alone…….

I took Nina to the airport this morning….. we arrived too early, of course. She was all nerves, having been busy packing (and unpacking and packing again) her suitcase. Nina does not travel ‘light’ . And she does not like traveling alone. So when she disappeared inside the main terminal…

I did not work……..

….. or hardly…. for an entire day !! What with getting up late, having brunch with the ‘kids’, then taking them to Amsterdam…. and being lazy in the afternoon, followed by going to bed early ! Doesn’t happen often these days 😉 I also booked Nina’s ticket to Timisoara, Romania.…

Christmas Day

Time to reflect……. for some of us. But no rest for the wary …. 😉 Today I WILL have some time off though. My parents are coming around for dinner that Nina will again so skillfully cook… and our daughter with boyfriend will be around today and tomorrow too. So…

Tinkering with pictures…..

TGIF !!

… or Thank God It’s Friday … . Not that it matters much for me, actually, all 7 days of the week are usually the same.. sitting at the PC 12-14 hours on end, multi-tasking (okay: chaotically working). Good news… the jaw is getting better… still without painkillers since last…

Healing !!

A second post today….. went to the hospital this afternoon (a day earlier than planned) and the surgeon took the bandage out of my jaw… and did NOT put new one in! Things are looking better… and feeling better. Now it is just a matter of waiting half a year…

Christmas Cards and errands

Yup, Nina has been haunting me for days with all the ‘things that need doing’ — apart from ‘work’, that is — and so I’ll need to write some Christmas cards today. I believe this custom clearly stemms from (and belongs to) an era when people actually had TIME for…

Been riding again

Yippeee…. got the cover off the RT (my BMW motorbike, for those who are not ‘in the know’), got all my protective gear on…. and headed for the Makro in Amsterdam (filled her up with fresh fish….. yikes!!, a stuffed duck… 3 bottles of cognac and a new iron for…
