30 April 2014 ( Cheeky)

Spend the day with my sister in Rotterdam! Of course we didn't get any help at the Turkish consulate... Bloody morons are the worst people in the country. You go there for help, but they don't even look at you and call you a liar! I hate to visit the place even if I need to get something done! Ugh! 

Anyway, during the lunch break, for Selim, we got to get something to eat. My sister got Patat and selim and I got these gorgeous and yummy paninis! Love it! When you get here, we have to have something from this place! <3

A lot of people find my way of learning confusing! But hey.... I get it. I also am addicted to the tea I can get at school! Which is silly, but I think it is the whole idea of having a cup to hold and stuff! Oh and this is psychology! again... :P

Dad bought these flowers today! They are so pink!! But he had red ones too, but I liked how this one was... Heehee!

Today I went to Living and Giving and did some school work. This is me trying to work out the different activities I'm going to be doing with my year 9 class. I get lots more done here, at least some times.

I wish you were here. I'd drag you down here and we'd study and work together!

Study study study! Spend most of the day at the library to finish this thing for Ethics... I think I will get a good enough grade! 

April 21 - Dorky

One of the things that Mum and Dad wanted Wimmy to help with when he was down (we always get him to help in the garden and stuff) was making a frame to go around the water heater in our courtyard. We had bought this bamboo screen that has been attached to a board so it fits around the heater, but the bamboo had started to get mould on it. So this is us using a high pressure hose to clean the mould off. It worked really well and was lots of fun (powerful water! If I could be a superhero I'd love to be able to control water, even though I don't really swim and stuff, but anyway. Guess I just want to be Percy Jackson).

Wimmy came to visit yesterday. Lily has gone to China to visit her mother, and so Tim came to spend Easter with us. Tonight we played this game. It's a card game, not with regular cards but special cards. We were playing it a bit wrong, but it was fun anyway. And I won! Yayay!

I miss my brother.

Meet the ducks of TU Library. I sat on top of the library to study, these came near me! I didn't have food... So they walked to others who had food! Lol! We need to have a picknick on top of the library when you get here! 

April 19 - Dorky

After dinner tonight we were given our Easter Eggs. My very very very very very favourite eggs are Elegant Rabbits. These things! Mum got me two of them! YAYAY

I won't eat them till tomorrow, because I've been eating other chocolates today, including some rocky road I made, but I thought they deserved a photo.

Tomorrow's picture will probably end up being a half eaten rabbit or something, but we'll see how we go.

So Bryn would tell you that this is the best time of the year. The Great Chocolate Festival!

I decided to have a go at making chocolates this year for Easter, and this is my first shot. Peppermint chocolates.

I made the fondant filling to go in them, and they actually taste kind of yummy. They don't look as neat as they could, but by the time I got to the whole filling them stage of proceedings I was over being careful, so I just squashed things in there. I'll do better next time. But yeah, I'm kind of impressed with myself for making these.

Tomorrow I'll make other types of chocolates as well.

Right answer :D

Today is Moogi's birthday, and I made her this hat for her. I made it yesterday, and I gave it to her after midnight. It took me about four hours and it was so simple to do. I'm so proud of myself.

I took mum and dad out to lunch for Mum's birthday, and this is when she was about to leave. I wanted a photo of her in her hat, and I wanted a shot of the hat, so yeah. What do you think? Not bad for a hat I made up as I went along!

Seriously I walk past this window every day and this kitten is there... Every day! so Today I took a photo of her/him with her pretty curtain! :D And look at the pose this one is giving me! hehehee! <3

April 16 - Dorky

Today my grandfather (Mum's dad) and my aunty Debbie came up for lunch. I made my favourite apple cake. When you make it you put in half the cake batter, then a layer of sliced apples and some flaked almonds, and then the rest of the cake batter, more apple and more almonds and you have to bake it for almost an hour and a half. Then you serve it warm. It's sooo good.

I've been doing lots of cooking lately. Lots of baking. I'm enjoying it. I need to do more of it. I just get tired, being on my feet. But oh well.

Mum gets a letter every two years for a boob check-up. Today was her appointment and this was in the waiting area. Pretty funny if you think about it... The flowers look like lady parts... But not the boobs! lol! 

April 15 - Dorky

This is from the entry to the retreat centre. I took the photo as I was leaving, since I didn't get a picture the day before. The place is called St Clements, and I'm guessing the statue is of St Clement.

It's so lovely and peaceful and pretty. Really good place to stay. And the second day of the course was really great too, so that was a plus.

I just hope that I can make good use of it all.

Well I am adicted to this game, finally I managed to get 1024 done! Woohooo!!

Today I went to Galong, for a philosophy seminar. It is so awesome. There are so many things I feel like I'll be able to use, especially with my year 10 class next term. We're doing Christian Decision making, and the stuff that was covered so far today will be great.

We were given little slips of questions and we had to sort them into different categories. That's what this photo is from. There were a lot of other things we did too, but I just liked this pic.

April 13, 2014 (Cheeky)

So I woke up with humongous headache! Pain in my neck and I couldn't do much... I was so dizzy it was not funny. Dad wanted to go to the stores to look at shoes, he needs new ones to work in... He didn't find anything he liked, so we left the store. We bought some groceries and then went back home. 

These shoes were there and I really like the model and the colours. I have so many black shoes, I think I need some colour in my llife... I would have gotten the blue one if I had money. They look sooooo sooooo adorable! <3

April 13 - Dorky

I decided that I wanted to clean my room. So today I did. It was such a mess, and I wasn't sure if I'd get it all done, but I did it. I need to sort out my cupboards and stuff, but My floor is clean and the surfaces are clean (except my desk, but meh. It's not too bad).

It took sooo long, but I just put music on (Yay Spotify) and got to it. I'm loving the Spotify mood play lists. Makes things so much fun. And when it got to a stage where I was singing and dancing along to music from when I was younger, well it was good that I wasn't tripping over my stuff!

Anyway, yay clean room!

Henna in my hair. I is red hair now. My white hairs are seriously shiney! :P I like it!

April 12 - Dorky

This is the inside of the Lutheran Church in town. Every Easter, on Palm Sunday (The Sunday before Easter), they have a sort of concert and this year Dad is narrating. I went with him to practice, just in case he wasn't well enough to say it all. He ended up doing fine though, and I spent the time writing a letter to you.

April 11, 2014 (Cheeky)

I went to Dordrecht to study with Dina. It went well. Although the subject is soooo... Ugh! But fun! Soooo soooo much fun! And I did sudoku on my way! It's like a morning ritual I have, I try to finish the sudoku before I get to school (or the place I need to be). Yay for finishing.

April 11 - Dorky

Ok, so the photo I have for today I have to get off another camera, but I'll get that sorted. And when I do that I'll take this bit out, but anyway.

Today was the last day of term, and the Easter Pageant. It went really well, and I'm happy with it, but I'm still a bit annoyed at stuff. But oh well. No point going into all that here. The kids worked hard and it was well received. It's a pity more people didn't come and see it, but hopefully it will grow as time goes bye.

Now I have two weeks off and then back to school. I hope I have a healthier second term!

The other photo of today was Felix... Vut I thought this was funnier... I wonder who would get these "Insect Hotel" as a present. The idea freaked me out... I mean I love nature and all... but uumm some of the creatures I do not need to see! Insect hotel... 

April 10 - Dorky

This was for sale, left over from Valentines day I guess. I know I've already shown you it, but I just thought it was so cute.

Eve picked it to give to her big brother because she loves him loads and loads and loads!

April 10 - Dorky


Today Dad spent a fair few hours helping a teacher from my school work on an assignment. As a thank you she bought a box of Favourites chocolates. Have you had them? They have all these different types of Cadbury chocolates. Maybe I should bring you a box. I'll see how generous I'm feeling!

This was all over the school... It's for a thesis I think... It did make me laugh though. They are looking for non-criminial wo/man... It's just funny! Although now I put it here.... I can't remember why I thought it was so funny... It could be because I had Law before this...

April 9 - Dorky

Today was an awesome day. I got TWO letters from you!
I really need to work on writing more letters to you. I've got one that I've sort of started but I need to do more. I love getting letters from you and I love writing them, but things have just been so strange lately

But I'll get back to it. Until then, yayay for letters! Thank you so much.

Can you spot the mistake in this photo?
I was going to put a photo of the counsellor's office, or a flower that was growing out the front, but I thought this was too funny.
I just wish i could have bought this. Who doesn't want their own owl dog?

Taken at School during a break. The building is gorgeous, but sometimes it feels like we are in a cage... Hunderds of birds trying to survive in the nice golden cage... Right. Anyway.

April 7 - Dorky

Welcome to my day! Tampons and chocolate. I could have included pain killers in the photo as well, but since they weren't bloody working I didn't think they deserved to be in the photo.
I hate tampons. I just thought I'd mention that. But I had to go to the pool so yeah.
But anyway. At least the chocolate was good.

7 April 2014, (Cheeky)

This pigeon was spoiled by me! He got some of my food! (I can't remember what else I did this day). There was an old man saying that I was spoiling the birds. I love nature.

This is actually nail polish. It's a new one from Revlon, to commemorate the latest Spider man movie.
Yup! Spider man nail polish! It's meant to be 'get Gwen Stacey's look' or something like that. I don't care. The thing that I like is it's a lovely shiny yellow gold.
So I did a blob of it and took a photo! Aren't you lucky.

6 April 2014, (Cheeky)

Happy Sunday! Well I think I spend the day in bed.. And this was the only photo of the day... Accidentally taken! Whoops! <3

I changed my bedroom, because I actually had to learn for exams... Yeah! What I did was switch places of my bed and chair and the bookcase :) It looks bigger in my room! Of course I didn't get a chance to completely finish it! So what was left was on the bureau and I fell asleep! :P

April 5 - Dorky

For the first time in ages I tried making an icon today, doing layering and stuff. Lately when I make anything it's just using the automatic filters on But tonight I tried to experiment.
I'm kind of happy about how it turned out, but I may well decide it's rubbish when I next look at it. I just don't have the artistic vision. :(
That's why knitting is so good. I don't have to make stuff up.

Sooooo... My whole body feels like... I can't explain. I feel exhausted.

I got this tea from a penpal in Canada! And seriously, the word thriller is correct. It was like a buzzz! Very nice! <3

April 4 - Dorky

We have very greedy cats. They keep trying to tell us that they don't have enough to eat. So Mum decided to sort out something. She has made boxes, and labelled them all, and now we put their cat food out, all sorted.

They each get a little tin of food for breakfast. They share a tin for lunch, and they get a small tin each for dinner. Plus they have a constantly replenishing bowl of dried food.

No idea a) how Bernie has lost weight and b) they think they are still hungry, but anyway!

Right, I am going to get home from school. But this was the photo of yesterday. I skipped class and got home and slept. When I woke up I went for a walk and got this cheesecake. It was good, we schould get it when you are here too! <3

Huggles and kisses.

Tomorrow I'm making biscuits with my year 7 Italian class. They have a test in their first lesson and then in the second lesson we're making these. Amaretti. I tried making some tonight and they were sooo simple.

So this is everything all bundled up so they can make them.

I had a bunch of photos... But this one is my favourite. The inside of a magnolia flower! <3
I hope you like it tooo!

Oh and the photos might be a bit weird, but that is because I has a new phone, BlackBerry Z10 and yeah I need to get used to it! <3

April 2 - Dorky

This is called a Chinese Lantern flower. It's sooo pretty, and the tree we have in the front yard is suddenly full of the flowers. I got it because it reminds me of Lily, and red is good luck. It's not a Chinese plant, it just has a Chinese name, but whatever!

It's lovely and it's doing really well, so what more could you want?

Sooo my April has started with a cup of Hotcoldrex...
Yup. Hello Spring! Thank you for making sick or maybe it was me.
Couse of the beach walk, it just came sloooowly and now I am all snotty!
I also love this cup! It is old, but I saw them in the stores again... 5 euros for this cup!

This is a jumper I'm knitting for my niece. We bought the wool a while ago and I've been plodding along with it, off and on for a bit now. I started it after I finished my fair isle hat earlier this year. It's growing, which is good, and it's interesting enough that I'm not falling asleep with it, but I'm already getting itchy needles! That's the term I've just this moment invented for when you want to move on to something else!

I was thinking earlier today that I bought wool on my last trip over to Holland as a souvenier and I've not done anything with it, so I have to use it before I go back. Hmm, might have to make some hats I think! Can't have enough hats. :)

If only I was allowed to wear them while I was teaching :( Oh well.
