In a way it is a good morning, because it is another day, we are still alive, it still is summer, and such. The way it isn;t such a good morning is that the guy from upstairs, didn;t show up. He would have been here to paint last week Thursday, then came to say he couln't come but wuld come Thursday.
Then on Thursday morning he dropped a note in our mailbox, saying he couldn;t come but would come at around 6 evening. And surprise? Nobody came and no message or phonecall or whatever either.
I have his phonenumber, but Jan refuses to call him, saying: "I refuse calling him, because it then looks as if we are begging". I can understand him in a way, but don;t agree completely either.
So now Jan will start painting himself today( I wouldn;t have him do it during the weekend, because he had his volunteer work to do).
Glad at least we have a bucket with paint, brough by this guy earlier. It is something.
But I feel rather pissed off, and I think I am allowed too.
I don;t know why it seems to be so hard to keep a promise? Or why make a promise if you are sure you will not keep it??
Well, we keep this in the back of our head and next time something will happen we will act differently.
we have a bit of strange weather at the moment. Temperatures are around 25 C, as it was yesterday too, but in the evening there was some lightning and thunder, not too much, also rained some, saw on the news that in other parts of the country they had real trouble because of the rain.
Now during the day it should be quiet but towards the evening they expect new rains and thunder and lightning. We'll see, if we will be lucky again.
If it will stay dry most of the day, I might make a trip to the market, have to drop a bill at the bank too, and it is on the way to the market.
I am not sure yet, but perhaps is will be best to do, leaving Jan to his painting, in peace and quiet.
(I know how I am. All the time checking if he is okay, not suffering too much from his back and so, and it is better for his and my mood that I go away for a while LOL).
I've managed to make a little kit for you, named it Seaside Sunset.
Hopefully you can do something with it.
Sorry it is kind of short post, but at the moment I cannot think of anything more that would be nice to read for you. Oh yeah, one thing we Dutchies are very proud of!
We have the world champion 200 mtrs. sprint. called Dafne Schippers. A lovely young women of 23 years old, who also took the silver medal on the 100 mtrs. sprint at the World Championship Athletics in Beijing!
