The unexpected surprise!

Goodmorning everybody!

On friday I had such a nice surprise! During the day I checked my bankaccount, and I can do that by phone, very handy. And you had to see my face when I heard the balance! Much more than I thought it should be. Didn;t understand it and listened to the amounts that were payed to me. Didn't figure it out, so as I was in the neighbourhood of my bank later that morning I popped in and asked if they could tell me from where that amount came from.
It happened to be from the tax office, a refund from taxes.! Oh my, now THAT is really a nice surprise, totally unexpected. Now I only hope they didn;t make a mistake LOL, so I "parked" the money on another account for the moment, but now we have a little reserve for moments Jan may have not so much work and the balance is too poor.
So I was a very happy person that Friday.

I did that morning all the shopping necessary, at different supermakets and now the freezer is all filled up again. It is a bit of work, to make smaller packages from the bread and the sandwichfilling, but it's oh so handy.
Saturday we were up early again, Jan to work and I did some householdchores, so by the time Jan came home around luchtime, all was done! I knew there was a little fair not far away so Jan relaxed for a moment and then we went out. It was great weather, only the fair was kind of disappointing, so we took a longer walk, all to towncentre, using an "alternative"route to it. That means we go through little streets we don;t know, but seeing all kind of lovely gardens, little houses we loved to own, LOL, exploring corners of The Hague that we still don;t know.
Nice day, yes, it was.

Sunday I took it easy on myself, Jan working the morning again, and I did nothing, I just was parked at my computer. Ja had a very easy an quick shift, so he was home earlier than I expected.
I knew there was another fair, also not too far away, so weather was nice again, and we walked to it. Now that was nice little fair. Not very big, but all the stands had home made products, some of them offered for a little price something to eat, there were lots of people and we also saw several of our "old" acquaintances, of the time we still went to "our"cafe where we had that geat group of friends too. Oh, it was a real nice afternoon.

In the evening we also had it nice, some of our favourite programs on tv are back again after summer holiday time, yeah,
And today we have an all free day, meaning Jan isn;t working, so no waking up with the alarm, but a little bit later, and that is oh so wonderful ROFL.
It looks to be again a great day, almost no wind, sunshine and nice temperature. No idea if we will stay home or not

That was our weekend, and now the new week has started, already we have September, it's unbelievable. One thing is for sure, if weather could stay the same as now till the end of November I would be a very happy person, but I am afraid it will not. Lets not complain before it is necessary and be greatful for the nice weather we have at the moment and live it by the day!

Perhaps you could take a moment time to visit a "new"blog, it's from one of my followers and she makes real nice things with my my kits(not only with mine, but they are used a lot). The blog is written in German, but she has a translator on it, so it shouldn;t be a problem.
You even can download some of her stuff, freebies for personal use, so why not take a look?
Here is the link ( and she has several blogs, you will see that when you visit)

Okay, time for some great clusters again from Arlene, and she keeps me busy, because this weekend she did sent me a lot of new stuff again!
This time she offers you clusters from the "Always Close to Me"kit.

Hope you have some use for my little kit, named "Make a Wish".
Have a lovely day, be creative and don;t forget to give a little smile here and there!

Sounds like you're having a really grand time. It's good to get out and explore the surroundings. I agree it would be nice for the good weather to stay for a long time. Oh well, I'm happy we have it now. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
