Wel, it seems that Jan is free from his cold on the stomach, glad that is over. I am too back to normal, so all is well around here. Now I really hope we will be free of any bugs or whatever for the coming time!
Yesterday there was again real bad news on tv, about a musicfestival in Belgium. It's a rather big festival every year, and well visited. But yesterday bad weather caused a terrible accident on the place, a tent broke down, caused by sudden hard winds, together with curtains of rain and hail and till now 5 people died because of it and there are also several wounded, some of them real bad.
What had to be a gathering of around 60.00 people, enjoying music, ended up in panic and as worst a few deaths. We saw some of it on tv and it really looked terrible. All muddy, broken tents, trees that were fallen down, a real mess. The festival was planned to take place till saturday, but they have cancelled it now.
So you see your life can change in a matter of seconds!
Wednesday afternoon I had a real quick visit from Heidi, who was a bit exhausted. Reason was, that her dad was in hospital already for several days and she has been busy with some friends in her father's house, (he lives alone)cleaning up the whole place. Her father suffered from a sudden temperature raise, real high and that's no good, specially because he also has some heart trouble now and then. They still don;t know what was the cause of it, but he has been given antibiotics for several days and temperature seems to be normal again. Probably he will be home this weekend again, if all stays normal. So my poor friend came back from holiday, and just a few days after this happened. I'll phone her today, to hear how things are by now.
I don't have the most uplifting blogpost today, is it? Well, there are always things happening in the big world and also in our near surroundings, and we don;t have influence on it. They just happen and we have to deal with it.
Weather forcast seems to be good for this weekend, with quite high temperatures and lots of sun, so we better take advantage of that when we still can. You never know here in Holland how long that will last!
But first I will have to do some shopping today and may be tomorrow we can make a nice walk. Perhaps we can go to the seaside, or perhaps to a small wood I know, where there might be blackberries to find. It's about the time they are at their best.
Better I don;t make too many plans, most of the time they aren;t realized and we end up doing something different ROFL!
Now here's the second part of "Timeless Memories", have a great day and wonderful weekend.
