Before telling you a bit more about the title first a message to Linda, about the Tuscany kit,. Linda, could you please send me and email with your email address in it, so that I can contact you? We can work something out for it. Thanks.
Then the disaster from yesterday speed skating on the 10.000 mtrs. Our Sven Kramer was in the last ride and he was doing so well. He was riding on 1st place , as we hoped for. Then something weird happened. Every round the skaters have to change tracks, from inside to outside track and opposit during the whole race. And suddenly Sven hesitated at a changing point, at the last moment took the inner track and.......... it was the wrong one!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobody really understands how that could have happened, if it was his mistake, or perhaps his coach was troubled, or a misunderstanding from a gesture. Whatever it was, it was disastreous, because Sven was disqualified! Oh my, I think all the people who watched the race were in a kind of mourning. Such a shame, it happened on one of Sven's most important races till now, and skating the best time and being disqaulified because of a un-understandable mistake! So no gold medal for us, still a little consolation there was a bronze one.
We better forget that very quick.
Then another "sad"thing happened LOL! Yesterday Jan wanted to sweep the vacuum cleaner through the house and that was a nice thing. But when he switched it on, it made a VERY weird noise, produced a strange smell, so he switched it off and brought me the message that our vacuum cleaner died. Oh whee, again something we didn;t expect to happen yet. Well, now we will have to buy another one today, or tomorrow, because to be without one, isn;t an option of course.
May be Jan will go by himself to buy one, so that I can stay home(gives me time to finish up the tax papers for the accountant, now that I have received all necessary papers, yeah) and tomorrow I have to go to Heidi's home to give the doggie a walk. Why? Not because of a nice occasion. Heidi has an infuse tube in her chest for her medication which is Flolan, for her longs. But it seems that the vane is infected and it was impossible to put the usual new tube in it. So now she has her medication via her vain in the arm, but it is no good, it could hurt the vains too much with very bad results! So tomorrow she has to go to the special hospital in Amsterdam, where they will look if they can insert a new tube by operation in the saim place in the chest. If the vain is too much infected, they have to place a new tube in a vain at the opposite side of the chest, so that the infected one can heal. That together with a antiobiotic cure. Not such great news. If they can replace a new tube at the same place, she could be home again the same day or may be the day after. But if she has to undergo the real operation on the other side of her chest, she has to stay several days. Well, she has to be at the hospital tomorrow at about 12.30 afternoon, obviously Danny will be with her and not knowing how things will be, she asked me if I could take care of the dog. You can understand it is a bit of stressy situation now. Cross your fingers please or send a little word to the big Chief, that it will not be the worst scenario for her!
You could say that the last two days were rather eventful in very different ways! I am not against events, but I am really waiting for some truly NICE ones, and they seem to be quit rare at the moment!
But we must not let it get us down too much, because that is of no help at all.
On to the order of the day, the freebiekit. It's a real Spring kit and I have to thank Sylvaine from http://scrapkado.blogspot.com/ for resources I used in this kit!
I called the kit "Sweetest Scent", because it is all about a flower, Lily of the Valley.
Let's see if today can stay a day of more easy-peasy, LOL.
You all have a great day!
