On holidays

On holidays

Hello everyone,

Just a short message to say that I will be away for 2 weeks! I’m leaving for Switzerland tonight, where I will travel around by train and do lots of hiking. And of course I will visit Celia (and Gert-Jan) for a few days!!

The last week has been very busy, since I had to move out of my house as well. After my holidays I will move in to the new house. My supervisor planned a meeting on the Monday straight after I come back, so I guess I will be working that Sunday… So I will have a crazy weekend after I come back, but that’s ok. I won’t worry about that now!

I’m sorry I didn’t have time to update my blog, I have lots of nice photos to share, but not enough time to put them on here šŸ™‚

Anyway, hope you all have a good time and I will be back on the 8th of July!

Here are some random photos of me and my friends taken during the last weeks…

My brother asked me to take some photos of the lunch boxes, I did this outside on a very nice day early May, and also took some other photos…

On the 11th of May we had a symposium dinner at the University, in the new Sainsbury garden restaurant. There were mostly researchers there, but there were also quite a lot of PhD students. We had to dress ‘smart casual’, it was a fun evening!

The next day we had a dinner at my place. We were making pasta salad, and just when we were done cutting all the vegetables and ready to mix everything, Nicole accidentely tipped over a full bowl, and by trying to rescue it, got the second bowl all over herself. It was quite funny!! Unfortunately ALL our food was now on the floor and we didn’t have time to start over. So… we gathered everything from the floor, washed it and ate it… hehe!

And finally ready to eat it!! We are all still alive by the way šŸ™‚

On the 14th of May I went to the last day of the Norwich & Norfolk Festival. There was a big street festival, lots of fun! There was also a treasure hunt, in which you had to find oranges by solving clues. With Veronika we only found half of the oranges, but we still found the “square of love” where we got a jam tart, a gold nugget and we could make a wish and eat a paper heart so that “the wish will be part of you and has room to grow”. I did the same thing with Johannes, but he was able to find all the oranges!!

Music made on rubbish.. and Johannes making his wish šŸ™‚

Later that day we celebrated Veronica’s birthday, we played Uno in the park.

On the 19th of May we had dinner at Aga’s place before going to a Scottish concert in the city center.

That’s all! Have a good weekend šŸ™‚


Balloon Launch

Balloon Launch

In the field close to my house, they launch balloons early in the morning and in the evening. A while ago, I saw they were preparing to launch one, and I happened to have my camera with me. So I decided to watch the launch and take some photos… while wishing I could go up as well! One day… šŸ™‚
