What a shame we didn't win the final of the soccer! But I have to say our team didn;t play it;s best game, although even Spain wasn't as good as in other matches. But I really think the best one has won it. Still, we don;t have to be really ashames, we did make it to the final, as other big soccer countries didn't make it. Always trying to see a bit the positive LOL! So now that madness is done with,up to the next one, but don't ask me what that will be.!
Yesterday we watched the match in the cafe with some others, the owner had a "closed" evening as we call that, which means the cafe isn;t open to the public, just to invited ones. He did it for the soccer game and at the same time he celebrated his birthday. Oh, my, I think he thought we were all hungry, because he had prepared a whole big table with all kind of goodies, like smoked salmon, other smoked fish, salds, ham with asperagus, french bread, all delicious! Oh, a nice thing happened as an extra: there were "blind"lists for all the Netherland matches, you know a list with results, but closed, so you fill that in blindly. As Jan and I made the lists, we let Rowena(wife of the owner of the cafe) fill in a number for us and yesterday I won it. So suddenly I had 50 Euro extra in the pocket! Whoopeee!
Saturday early evening suddenly we had curtains of rain and lots of thunder and flashes. It was a bit expected with all the warm weather the last week! It was a good thing for nature and our gardens! But in other parts of the country they weren't all too happy with it, it caused quite some trouble.!
It didn't effect much the weather though, cause Sunday it was warm again, although sometimes a bit more cloudy.
Oh, yesterday Jan and I cleaned up the fish bowl, the poor things (two guppy fish, male, whoops) needed a refreshment. So of course first we had to remove the fish from the bowl, in the kitchen. No problem, I had a little sieve, so I catched the first, and put him into another small bowl. Then the second, but he didn't work with me and jumped out of the sieve, hopla, on my foot! Lucky I could catch him from there without problem and put him with his mate. (I already saw jan and me go to a shop to buy a new one, pffffff!!). So we washed the grid and the small plant and put fresh water in their bowl and voila, the fish can look through their window again! I checked a bit later, if all was allright with the jumper-fish, he could have had a heart attack from all the excitement, but he was swimming happily around.
During the weekend I managed to design a bit more and today I have a kind of "special"kt. The last month South Africa gave us a warm welcome and hosting during the Soccer World Championship and I thought it would be nice to make a kit for that. So as a kind of "Thank You"to South African people I made a kit and named it "Till we meet again, South Africa". It's all in warm colours, it has 15 papers and some nice elements in it.
Time for me to close the post and slowly get on to "business"today. You know, work in the house and household is never done, hahaha!
Hope you all have a terrific start of the week today!
