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.

Last three days have been good.
On Sunday afternoon I suddenly decided, while staring at my thesis outline in progress, that I needed new pants. Green pants. And I happened to have a few pieces of green fabric; dark green on one side, light green on the other side. So I got to work.
I used a pattern for a size 46 pants (I have size 40/42) and altered it so it would fit me. That was the easy part. Then I had to decide how I would do the zipping. Of course I planned this project on the day that my mother went to England for a week, so I had to help myself. Long live second hand sewing books! I managed to put in a zipper in the way that zippers are put into jeans. You can't see it when I'm wearing the pants. W00t!
So now I have new green pants with some yellow decorative seams.

Monday I went to my grandparents at 10.00 hours, to clean up a bit before my grandma would come back from the hospital. She had left the message that I could dust and vacuum clean the living room. So I did. Then I helped her get comfortable and went home again after making an appointment for this Wednesday to do the toilet and bathroom.
Even though it is weird to have your grandpa around who's making remarks all the time, it felt good to do something for them.

Today I had lesson two of the thesis workshop, though I missed lesson one last week. It was a little bit useful and a bit annoying. The teacher seemed a bit unorganized but one of the exercises he made us do was quite useful; resulting in a conversation with two study mates about my thesis and project.

After that I had an appointment with my thesis teacher, Hans. He told me he had some doubts about my thesis subject (weblogs) because it's a relatively new phenomenon and he was wondering if there had been anything written about it yet. When I showed him my (quite impressive) bibliography he came around. We had a pleasant conversation about all kinds of thesis related subjects and made an appointment for over two weeks.
I left him my outline. My not so good outline, but still something that showed a bit of work.

So, tomorrow early up to go to my grandparents again. Clean the bathroom and toilet.
At 16.30 hours Matthijs will 'pick me up' so we can go to Laurens' birthday party at his father's place.
At 20.00 back to Ermelo for jazz.
Thursday morning or afternoon, not quite sure yet, to school for peer review session number 2.
Thursday evening a meeting with the Evolution Events crew.
And hopefully sleep in on Friday...
