I did like the simplicity of some fo the things, like these. Oh magnets for your fridge. And no, we didnt get one, this was for my aunt. Her friend took it for her...
Sigh. Such an exciting life.

In case of (mental) emergency, consume contents!
I also bought her a bubble blowing wand, and we stood in her backyard and blew bubbles, and they were so beautiful. That seemed to help her. It's nice to have something beautiful to focus on.
I decided to go to a henna party... I dressed up like this, the shoes are my favs (can't wear them too often cause of the heels) and the purse/clutch/bag is from 1988, when my aunt got married. Ebru uses it now and I could borrow it :) so yay!

So another photo of a flower. I think most of my photos are food or flowers. Oh well.

I was curled up on a red leather sofa, writing and knitting and perving on the waiting staff and just being very content.
I will take you there one day, I promise.

Anyway, there is this group that goes around selling books. They leave a display there, and you pay for the books and then come collect them later. I saw this book, which is soooo awesome, on sale for $20 (usually about three times that at least). So I put down my name and handed in my money. I'll get the book in a couple of weeks.
Then I got home and saw I had a present on my bed. It was all wrapped up in gold paper and a pretty bow. I unwrapped it and it was this book! Mum had seen it when she went to the dentist and bought it for me! So now I will have two copies. I might give the other copy to Lily. Sooo funny. Such a great book. I love she bought it for me though. :)
The Bull of Delft :) Hahahah Okay so I had a load of photos for today, I couldn't pick out and decided on this one. I like how evertyhing looks on here! I think I used it on Instagram too... But yeah, I like how the weather looks sunny and still like it will rain... And the colours on the bull. :D Hope you like it too :P
Oh and no school because of the nuclear summit :D :P

Hey, so my parents did shopping in the morning. My dad bought all the bread from Lidle... No he didn't, but I'd get if he did do that! lol. This is the Lidle where you can get fresh baked bread and it is lovely! So I want to show it to you! (and instagram! lol!!!)
So here is my beautiful baby with his favourite thing beside food. Leather! Yes, my cat has a kink!

I did go to the mosque, cause I promised my cousin... But when I was there I just felt weird and awkward and was playing with my phone. I actually enjoyed the speaker (Teacher, also imam's wife) talk and she was really nice and good to listen too. There was a lot of info I knew.
I really did not like that I had to stay longer... But the dishes I did and cleaned up a bit. So that is good! I am socially really awkward and I don't really feel like I belong somewhere.
Anyway I got home and made this for myself! Greek style yogurt with chocolate and strawberry and I felt a bunch better.
Tonight I worked at the cinema. I was filling in for somebody else, and my job was to make the popcorn. It was fun, mainly because I got to go home fairly early. The movie showing was 12 Years a Slave and I didn't feel like hanging around till that was over. I'm working next week and I am supervising so I'll have to stay around for the whole thing, but that's ok. I'll live.
But yeah, Popcorn!

Anyway, I loved making this, painting with ink.
I'm trying to tell myself that the powerlines and phone cables add to the image, but I'm not so sure! Oh well.

I went to school and only had law class. Then I spoke with Nisha and we got cheesecake. After that I got home, slept and... had food, then did voted, did my legs and went swimming with Ebru.
I missed the TedxHagueAcademy... But at least I can watch the videos online :D Next time I will try to actually go! <3 It was about safety and security, since the summit will be here next week!
CHEEESECAAAKE! oh when you get here, we have to visit it! Okay!?
But the only photo I took was of the notepad I used to write a letter to Sam. I've not finished it, but at least I've made a start.
I should write you another letter too soon. Add that to the list of things I can do instead of marking work!
Oh, by the way, I've written a letter to you already with this notepaper. Kayla let me use some of the pages!

And then I got depressed cause 100 years after the Great War we still try to kill each other off.
Oh I am also obsessed with drawing flowers...
I wanted to get these blue and white ones, and there was even a pair that matched my walking stick, but the plain black ones are awesome too.
Now I know what size I am though I may well have to buy more eventually. Yayayayay!
Oh, and you should have seen the little baby ones too. Sooooo adorable!

I love how they were peaking out between the fence rails at school. And the smell was lovely too. I love the roses we have at school. The ones we have at home are nicer, but the ones at school are lovely.

I also have a bunch of flower seeds in paper cups :D
Anyway, this was my dinner! Salmon and salad! It was soooo good! I love salmon, it probably is my favourite fish!
Oh I also got on top of the Mill! De Roos (The Rose) in Delft. Which was amaaazung! I have photos, I shall send it to your phone!
But this frog was nice and quiet and just hid in the corner.

Anyway, I made a Moroccan style chicken stew for dinner and then made a crepe cake for dessert. This is the cake. I had never made either recipe before, but they both worked out really well. The crepe thing is layers and layers of crepes, with a chocolate coffee sauce in between each layer. Then there's more sauce poured over the top.
It's yummy! I'm already thinking of other ways I can adapt it, different fillings and so on. It's fun.

Anyway, chocolate eggs with footballs on them. Made me smile

I bought these today! Cause I felt like I need some pretty flowers.
The lillies are sooo pretty, these were the only colours I found :D I didn't see red or purple ones... :( I got white and yellow. It was 54 cents! :D If I could find other colours I would have gotten them! Can't wait to put them in the ground! :D
Just in case you were wondering, from left to right there is Mum's chair, Dad's chair and my chair. Mine is the only one that isn't electric. They're all recliners, with the foot rests coming up, but on Mum and Dad's chairs they come up with the touch of a button. Very cool.

The funny thing about the Netherlands is that sooooo much happens in it, but you don't realize it most of the time! It happens and it is over soooo fast. Even though it takes ages to actualize a happening.
Anyway... It is 5pm and I am still at school. Must have hit my head :P But I managed to do a load! Woohooo!
I want to do an intensive training course in Italian. Like, go live in Italy for a while (even just a couple of weeks) and study. That would be brilliant. Of course, they'd probably then stop teaching Italian in all schools, just to spite me, but oh well. I could move to Milan and teach David!

Then you eat it.
We had some old bread and Mum decidedto make some. It was sooo good! The sultanas plump right up. They looked like maltesers, they were all round. Then they came out of the oven and they started to shrivel again, but they were still tasty.
Maybe I can make you some when I'm there. What do you think? Hehehe. I should sooo cook for you!

Wonder by R.J. Palacio. A book I bought a few months back and today was the day I started to read it. I read the first few chapters and it looks like I will be finsihed with it soon. Although I don't think today... Today I feel like lazy!
Have I already used photos of the masks? If I have, sorry. Oh well.
