Holiday again!

Our traditional visit at the Shakespeare theater in Diever (NL) took place last weekend. They played "As you like it" and it was fantastic. For me it was the 13. time to see a play here. The atmosphere in the theater is indescribable, the wooden seats terrible but suitable, the play so funny and the acting really professional. Because of the nice weather we went camping for the weekend and that was great. I love the campsite there, because I have many good memories from it and it felt like a holiday again. This time, we even brought our personal cook ;) Thanks again Remco, for the bacon and eggs for breakfast!

Maybe there have been days I was a better company to the others, but I blame Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I just couldn't stop reading... by day and at night...

The campfires on Friday and Sunday night were also really good. Pity we didn't bring marshmallows though. Although a holiday to Greece is beautiful, nothing can beat building your own campfire and sit at it all night having fun with others.

On Monday night we came back, because we had our first Amusing Hengelo Festival Organisation meeting. Today I had to work and when I came home I found 24 new e-mail messages in my mailbox, exclusive spam [sigh]. So if people are waiting for an anwser, they'll have to wait a little longer because tonight I have another appointment, tomorrow I need to work and I didn't even finish my book yet!!
Real life's begun again. Holiday's over...

This week I started working again. My holiday is over... But today I had a day off (I love having a part-time job) and mainly because the work for the festival hasn't started yet, it also really felt like having a day off, because I had time. Yes, I had time! I love it when I have time. I have time to read, for instance. Right now I'm reading the fourth book within four weeks. I guess things will change quickly as soon as everything is back to normal after the school holidays.

But, because I can't read all day and because I want to do something usefull as well, I decided it was about time to tidy up my desk in the computer room. It's a pity I didn't make a "before" picture actually, so you could see the difference. It was really, really messy. I could put all the papers and stuff and mess back on the desk and make a picture of it, but then I would have done all my work for nothing. So I'm terribly sorry, but I'll give you the "after" picture only:

See the empty file holders on the right? They're empty because I bought them today hoping they'll help me to keep the desk tidy.
The only thing I shouldn't do when I'm sitting at my desk right now, is looking over my shoulder to the other corner of the room. It still looks like this:

Well, there'll be time for that corner some other day. Hopefully... Tonight there's only me, my book and my cup of tea. And Martin of course, with the constant roaring of airplanes from his flight simulator which is his sign of having time ;)
