To have or not to have a car-kit

motorola_roadster_tz700_bluetooth_portable_visor_car_kit_4With my twenty-fifth birthday coming up this weekend, my parents have been asking me what present I would like. Well, since I don’t have the best car kit for my telephone, I thought that would be a nice one. With only three more days to go and a full agenda, last night seemed to be the right moment to seek and buy one. Therefore I headed out with my dad to the Media Markt in order to find myself one that actually works good. Continue reading


Sinterklaas Evening

gedichtensintSinterklaas is somewhat of a tradition in Holland and especially within my family. We have been celebrating this since I was like one year old and never stopped doing so after. So despite the fact that I am 25 years old already, it always remains an exciting day. Already for the fact people are finally going to read the poems I wrote out loud. Now allow me to take you all through one of these Sinterklaas evenings. Continue reading

Sinterklaas shopping

sinterklaas (1)With only five more days until Sinterklaas evening, I had to get out and buy the last presents that I was still looking for. Like every year I still had to go out the last weekend to get the last presents I needed to buy. Hoping it would not have sold out, yet. So yesterday I head to the shopping center (again) knowing what horror I would have to go through. Then again, isn’t that part of the holiday spirit? Continue reading

Birthday mom part II

11949867001754692741balloons_01.svg.medAs I mentioned in Wednesday’s blog about my mother’s birthday, the other half of the family would come today. Friday. This time it was my father’s family’s turn to show up at our doorstep. It was almost four months ago since I saw them last time and some I had not seen for at least a year. Somehow they don’t have a real strong bond with my parents, my brother or I. Still, it was nice to see them again anyway. Continue reading

Hectic day, lazy night

683shopping_mallAfter an already busy week I still decided it was time to play some football anyway. To my own surprise this went pretty well, until the moment where cramp set in and made it kind a hard for me to play. Knowing there was a busy Saturday lying ahead, I called it a night and got to the shower. Okay, I stuck around for a while to have couple of drinks with my teammates, but made sure I woke fresh Saturday morning. Continue reading

Grandmothers’ grand birthday

Yesterday my grandmother had her 81st birthday. When you come to think of it, that’s quite an impressive age and I feel lucky to still have her in my life. When one reaches such an impressive age, I believe that every birthday should be special in some way. It makes you more aware that she might be gone soon. So therefore I wanted to give her something special. A memory and moment we could both enjoy and remember. Continue reading

Busy Friday

Yesterday I started of the day by telling you how amazing my Coldplay concert had been. Something I am still truly positive about writing, because it was magnificent. It was the best concert I have seen in my life, for what’s worth it. The only minor downside might be that my legs and body were acing, with a busy Friday ahead of me. Still, I managed to make the best out of day I would have rather skipped.
