Tessa in the yard, from a series I made while trying out my new camera.
I cut my hair last week. Or rather, I had it shaved 😀 There’s about 2 or 3 mm left. I decided I wanted to try it out so I had my friend Nienke shave it off, saving 17 euros on the hairdresser as well. It looks pretty good I think, took some getting used to at first. And the weather’s still quite frisky so it’s wearing hats for me now.
Here’s a picture, a bit blurry and such but I took it with my phone so…
I have my dog, well, the family dog, staying with me for a couple of days. My parents dropped her off yesterday afternoon and I’m taking her back Tuesday morning. She approved of the new rug in the living room (much better than the colder laminate floor underneath and around it) and seems to enjoy it that her stuff has been brought here as well.
Of course the occasion had to be celebrated by the taking of many pictures.
And in regard to my previous post, a photo of my pipes 😀
We didn’t have a whole lot of snow this winter and I doubt whether it’s still going to be there at all. But the one time or so we did have snow, I took some shots to show the pathetic amount of snow we had.
So, I’m back from neglecting the one and a half reader I might possibly have. I’ve had enormous fun over the past few weeks. Not doing anything specific, just hanging out with friends and such.
Last Wednesday I went swimming with Eva, Mellien and Ingrid in the harbour at Noordpolderzijl. When we arrived, high tide was still a couple of hours away so it was mostly clayey wet mud and very little water. But mud is great to play in…
Me all muddy:
Mellien, me and Eva all muddy:
The water did rise pretty fast though, it wasn’t long before we could really go swimming.
Also Castlefest is coming up (4-7 August) and I’m so looking forward to it. This time we’re staying in a cabin over the weekend so we’ll have decent beds and electricity (yay! camera reloading goodness).

Since I’ve been showering you with photographs, I figured I’ll do a few more to show off the results of a month of hard work.
Last night I spent my first night in my new place. About time too, it’s been a month since I got the key.
Today, my uncle came to put the one-to-last finishing touch in, laying laminate in the kitchen.
All that needs to be done now is getting my living room curtains, which my aunt is making for me.
About 98% of the fixing up part is done. The only things that need to be done are painting the wooden bits under the doors (but we wait with that until after I move so we don’t damage the paint during moving) and laying the upper flooring in the kitchen (which is fairly easy and with which we’re waiting for the same reason as the painting). My dad will be hanging up some lights and my mom and aunt said they would go cleaning and so they’ll be doing that tomorrow and then we can move stuff. Finally!
If all goes well, I’ll be all moved and settled in by next weekend.
Here’s a picture of the mess in my room with boxes and piles and such.
Some more pics.
My book case, partly painted (black that is, the yellow is the old colour).
This is the kitchen floor after the guys from the housing cooperation came by and fixed it.
And here are my freshly painted walls, most notably the one red wall. Me like lots!
