Sitting cat Welcome to my home-cooked journal.
Here you will find my rants about every day life and things that keep me busy.
In the past I have frequently written, but there's no saying if I'll continue on that path. It all depends on how busy I am.
Have fun reading my scribbles.

It has been almost a week since the last update and it wasn't because I was busy. At least, not really. I just didn't have much inspiration, even though a lot has happened.
My grandma has been in the hospital a couple of days because she was getting a new knee. There were some complications (fever, fainting) after the surgery so she has been in and out of the hospital all week. My grandpa is very confused now. His wife is about the only security in this world he still has and now that she has "fallen away" so to speak, he doesn't know where to look anymore.
So tomorrow morning I'm going to their house, to clean some things and help my grandma settling down again. This week it will be my job to take care of the cleaning and stuff there. My mother just left for England, for her next week of study. The partner of my uncle has a hernia, my other aunt lives in Almere, which is not very near. And all the men have to work of course. So it comes down to me.
It isn't that bad. I even get payed for it. But it is a bit weird, to be looking after your grandparents.

I have to go to school on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday for the thesis workshop and the meeting with Hans, and Thursday for the peer review session. Hopefully I'll be able to make an appointment with either David or Tom about my project. I've been focusing on my thesis this week (I got about half a page.. not much, but also read a lot) but I still haven't got a project.
I did manage to do the assignment for the thesis workshop, though I'm not sure the quality is alright. I even did one extra excersise.
On Wednesday evening Laurens celebrates his birthday at his father's place. And I kind of have to go there. I'm not all too excited about birthdays, but Laurens is alright and he is my boyfriend's brother so... And after that I have to go back to Ermelo for jazz.
It looks like it will be a busy week.

This weekend was Lextalionis and it seems to have been a success, despite all the bad luck we had with finding a nice location.
I didn't attend but in stead stayed home and had Sanne drop by. We have sewn one farmer wife costume and made a to-do list. It's a bit disturbing to see how much still has to be done. Lextalionis has the advantage that it is a modern time larp, so you grab something from your closet and you're ready to go. But Exodus will be a fantasy event and so we need a complete stock of costumes. Perhaps we could lend or rend some from befriended organizations. But still, there needs to be a lot of work done.
