Planning and shopping

Even though I had postponed all tour guiding this year till July, I started this season filling in a spot that had not been filled yet. I think this one had the worst weather so far. It was cold, windy and wet. I even took the group into a coffee shop to warm up, which is a first time for these kind of groups.

In the afternoon, Mo and I went to the house and started to plan some of the stuff that needs to be done in the upcoming weeks. Like where to put power plugs and switches. Also we planned what needs to be done first so we can move in at the beginning of July and what can be done once we move in.

Once the plans where made we went shopping for some electricity materials and information on internal doors and switches.

The next day we continued planning before we met up with a friend who we also took to see the house. Then I did a little job in the garden that has been bothering me for months already. It is not perfect because of a weird construction, but for sure it is much better then before.

I also cleaned out the front garden from the wooded floor we took out last week. I sawed it in pieces and piled it up in front of the garage. Firewood with woodworm.

First international guests

After 5 weeks of work, we decided to take it easy on this free day. Besides some friends from the Netherlands would stop by at the start of their trip through Russia and central Asia.

And the good thing about guests that come by car. The can bring ‘liquids’ without a problem. So my appelstroop stock has been filled again and I got a few bottles of Grolsch! As an extra bonus there where a few bags of licorice. Thanks a lot Marijke en Joost!

As it was beautiful weather we had cake and tea in the garden before we went to town to have a drink with a view on the 24th floor of Radison Blu and some diner in Rotermanni.

The TOY that will be their home for the next 4 months
