Still cold, but hoping on next week's weather.

Goodmorning everybody!

Gosh, I slept well this night! Once I closed my eyes  yesterday night, I knew nothing about the world and slept through all night, how wonderful.

Wednesday afternoon i decided to go to the market. Weather looked allright at that moment, even with some sunshine, so well and warm dressed it wasn;t so bad to be outside.
But halfway my strolling at the market suddenly the sky became dark and there was a meldted snow shower. Not the most pleasant thing to experience, but thank God it didn;t last too long.
Glad I had my furred hood.
Think it lasted for about 15 minutes and then the blue sky and some sun came back again.
By that time I was all done so I returned home and gosh it was good to be there and be able to put on my sweatpants.

Jan received a ltter from Social security office that he should be at an appointment next Tuesday for some volunteer work. he will have an interview with somebody there, and will probably hear what they have in mind.
In the mean time Jan already was busy to contact another organasation for some volunteer work.
He got in contact yesterday and there will be an information session for volunteers in a nursing home
next Wednesday. I will go there too, and hopefully we will find a volunteer job there.
It will be great, because the home they need the volunteers is very nearby, about 15 minutes walk at the most! 

At the moment there are debats in parliament about the  decentralization of government functions to municipalities program, specially for the house care budgets for elderly, disabled and lots more. This to provide possibilities people can stay for a longer time in their own home.
I've found an article about it in English if you might be interested and if you scroll down on that page more explanationary articles can be found.
But in very short: there is chaos at the social security department, that is responsiblee now for the health care budgets, and I don;t think you can blame the civil servants who have to deal with it, it is government that pushed it through too quickly, I think.

So far for politics now, don't want to bore you too much with it, but for a lot of people this is a very concerning issue and very important too!

Well, it is getting really late now, soon I will take a sandwich and another coffee and watch one of our favourite programs in the afternoon on the BBC, "Bargain Hunt".

 I have a new kit for you today,  named "Curious" and it will be in 2 zips, so one today the other Monday. Really like how the color pallet turned out in this kit.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Good morning Kyra. Gosh, I hope you and Jan can both get volunteer work at the same nursing home. That would be so nice. Do you have buses you can take so that you don't have to walk in the rain and other bad weather?

Your new kit is lovely. I love the colors. How do you manage to keep coming up with these wonderful kits?

It is so cold here this morning. My Pogo won't come out from under his blankets to eat his food. Hmmm, I may have to put the food under the covers too! haha.

Well, now I need to get started working on my taxes. You have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Edna B.

Hello and Thank you Kyra for this lovely download.
I also think that the colours go really well together.
I hope you and Jan can both find some volunteer work that you can both enjoy and also that is close to your home so you don't have too long to travel...
