Being on holiday is great fun. Especially if you have the use of one white little car that can whizz you anywhere in no time flat. Well, it takes a bit longer than that, but still. It's nice to have a car.
Yesterday I used said little white car to whizz to my old hometown of Emmeloord. I needed to close some bank accounts and I wanted to pay a visit to my old hairdresser. Well, the bank accounts were closed and the visit was paid. But even though I wanted to have my hair cut and dyed there, it turned out that through some fault which was entirely my own, I didn't have enough money in my bank account and couldn't pay for it. I went back home.
After having sorted the bank account I finally made it to a Dutch (and therefore cheaper) hairdresser and had my hair cut and dyed. It looks great again and I am very happy with the colour. Photos to follow soon.
Later that evening I had a small party with my former colleagues. I had instigated it and it was great fun. I arrived last and left first, but then again, I was the only one who had nearly 45 minutes drive to get home! All the others live quite local and in the case of one: was home!
It was great to see them again though. The old stories came out again, we talked about what everybody was up to, what I was up to and it was good fun. There was good drink and good food and I enjoyed the evening very much. I don't know when I will see them again, because I am not planning on returning to the Netherlands after this stay for quite a while.
Anyway, that was day 2 of my holiday. Today my sister (who arrived yesterday from Outlandia) and I will go shopping. Get the stuff that is unobtainable or very expensive in either Northern Ireland or Norway. Do some window shopping as well. And then tonight a dinner with Pepperfly and C and of course my sister and me.

Bring it on...
