It is still winter around us. Lots of snow this week. It looks beautiful, but is not nice to drive in. The Monday photo is of the TV corner in our living room. Last week we bought a few closets for the DVD’s and for other stuff (like from the Wii). It looks so much better now that there’s no clutter in that corner anymore! On Tuesday the kids started an ice-skating 3-days on the ice skating rank in Woldendorp. They had so much fun doing that, on the first evening Shen skated 20 rounds (of about 300 meters) and Mean 10, but the next three days they both did 20 rounds. It was great that the iceclub organized this event. The Wednesday photo is of my way back home from work. It started snowing in Groningen around 2 PM, and when I left it was very hard to drive. It took 2 hours to get home, which is normally about 40 minutes. I was really tired afterwards. On Thursday and Friday I had a Photoshop CS4 course, that was great! Inspirational and also great fun. The photo of Thursday has been taken at 7 in the morning at the train station of Appingedam. The Friday photo is of the medal and diploma Mean and Shen earned for the ice-skating 3-days. Saturday was a very cold day. The kids had a birthday party. The photo is of last Sunday, we drove in Rudy’s car to our fathers for a happy new year drink, and I took the photo in one of his many mirrors (he’s a driving instructor). The Sunday photo is of Mean playing her Cambodian Xylophone. She has lessons at the music school in Delfzijl, and learns to play the small xylophone, but the songs worked out on this big one also!
