It's looking to be a rather nice day today, for the moment I see some sunshine and not too much wind, so may be a good day to pop over to the bank to leave there a bill to pay(such a pity for the money LOL), and sniff some air.
Last two days I did some little things in the house, also had to do some shopping( had no more coffee and cat food, for one), on the way I bought Jan some metal angles he needed to finish a closet, I am such a nice person, ain't I grin grin!
The of course also a lot of Olympics to watch, naturally most o it was the speedskating. Well, there was a big surprise. On the 500 mtr. sprint for men we hoped to win a medal, because normally competition from other countries is huge, but we did win all three of them!!
Oh gosh, it was sooooo exciting and not clear till the last moment who would win the medals!
I am really proud of our guys!
Then yesterday there was the 500 mtr. sprint for women, and we didn;t really count on a medal there, but the miracle did happen! We did win a bronze medal, done by Margot Boer.
We were so happy for her, she's aiming for it already several years, and finally she did the trick, at the Olympics. Of course also congratulations to the other medal winners. Great job!
Finally we even did get to see a summary of the figure skating, oh my God, how beautiful is that!
I surely hope we will get to see more of it and not just a short summery!
All those sporters deserve a great respect, no matter on wich place of a ranking they end up.
Did you know by the way that this Olympics there also is ski jumping for women for the first time?
I did see a bit of it and it's fantastic!
With all that chit chat about the Olympics you can tell by now we LOVE to watch all kind of sports, and yes, some more than other, but in general we do watch it with pleasure.
Now today another important speedskating event, at the least, for us. 1000 mtr. sprint for men is on the programme and we do have some very good skaters for it. But again, competition is high, from Norway, the U.S, Russia, and more. So it will be exciting again.
In between all this we do watch some other things on tv too LOL1 And even do some things that have nothing to do with tv. Life is going on and bills have to be payed as well as soon tax-office will knock on the door, and the house sometimes is crying out that it needs a cleaning etc,etc.
Our politics go on too, there was another crisis going on in the government and parliament, but the minister who wa "under fire"survived it and still has his position. Now why isn;t that a big surprise to us???????????? The goernment supported him, although he made some big mistakes, because otherwise a good chance was there that the government had fallen. And no, of course they don;t that to happen. We know it already for a long time, but you have to admit, again, that politics often is a rather dirty game!
No, I will not continue on this subject, it will spoil my day and yours too!
Better I post now your freebie, don;t you think? Soon Valentine's Day will be there, but I didn;t make a specific kit for it this year. But I think this one might have possibility to use it for a nice Valentine's day layout. I named it "A Lady in Red". Together with Arlene's lovely clusters, you could end up with a wonderful layout.
Have a lovely day and till Friday!
