I don't know

I hope you are not angry with me! Because I know for a fact more people had commented on my last post, than the two it says right now. I didn't delete them (I only delete from weirdos and I don't think you lot are that far yet), so they must have been lost in cyberspace!

Mind you, I couldn't get on the blogger all day yesterday due to something or other, so it might have to do with that!

Anyhoo, yesterday was spent doing a very early shift and a very late shift. I started at half past six in the morning and finished at nine in the morning. And then, some joker planner had decided that it would be fun to do make me start again at 8pm and finish at 1.30am! Of course I didn't agree with how 'well' that worked, but never mind, I did both shifts.

The early morning jobby was the school run and the late night one was a concert run. One of the Netherlands biggest Dutch singing stars is Marco Borsato (yes, of Italian descent) and he gave four sell-out concerts in Arnhem. We arrive with a load of buses to get all the concert goers back to the station or the parking lots within one hour. And indeed, after only two runs (and a little detour), the place was empty and I could go home again.

The song at the top is one of his songs and it was actually the first one I ever heard. It was already hugely popular at the time and I was amazed at how people reacted to it. So, for all you Dutchies out there reading this blog: enjoy!


  1. Blogger stole lots of my comments, too!
    I enjoyed the video clip - don't speak a word of Dutch, but the song was catchy and well sung. I particularly liked the unaccompanied bit at the end.

  2. Not your fault, Mara. Lots of comments (and, indeed, lots of posts) have disappeared into cyberspace, even though Blogger promised to restore them.
    You know what I'm going to say. You've just finished being sick, and you shouldn't be working such long hours yet. Nag, nag, nag. (Canada wants healthy immigrants.)
    Nifty about the concert, though!

  3. Blogger was out for everyone! I lost my comments to. Then the posts were all back up again but I wasn't about to go back to everyone and comments again. At least it's back :)

    You wouldnt believe the spam mail in get everyday in my e mail junk file due to people looking at blogs to get e mail addresses and send them all their crap. thats one think i hate.
    get good rest from being so busy

  5. We still love you, Mara. I too lost several comments. Blogger was out most of the day on Thursday. (Our Thursday).

  6. Marco is pretty nice to listen to! Nice. Lots of folks are saying blogger was super goofy of late! So, it's not just you! Have a nice rest of the weekend.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
