Good things from last week

I haven’t been very active on the web last week. Monday and tuesday were spent in bed suffering from the flu and wednesday and thursday I was working in Amsterdam. After the flu I  was very lucky to catch a cold (sore throat) which is still bothering me. But there were also some good things happening last week. Here’s a short summary of the good things:

  • I received my very first issue of Kinfolk (hooked!)
  • Rene and I went to see the movie ‘Parkland’ about the murder of President J.F. Kennedy
  • We went to Paradiso to see Wakey!Wakey! play and on friday the performance of our friends from Southern Sunrise at De Stemming
  • We finished watching season 2 of House of Cards (quite a season!)


This weekend my parents visited us, they hadn’t been to the apartment since we moved here the first of December(they live way up in the north of the Netherlands). While they spent the night at a hotel in Haarlem, this little lady above stayed the night with us. On saturday we showed my parents around in the city center of Haarlem and made them some nice pasto pesto rosso. My mom got me a new plant from the saturday market. On sunday morning we went out for an early morning walk  in the park with Chika.

    And we love your house very much…the two of you did your best to make ik beautiful. Your dad and me thought is was lovely and very cosy. We had a great weekend and enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks for it. Hope you can read my english, and that I made not too many mistakes. Hugs from mam
