Yesterday a funny thing happened: all the houses in my street were spreading the same light... That of a candle, or candles. We had a power breakdown because of the bad weather (which was quete scary actually) and half the town went dark. So we ended up in bed, reading with a flashlight clasped between cheek and shoulder. I am still reading Nabokovs Lolita, and it still disturbs me a little.
Today I went to Alkmaar, a town in the north west of the Netherlands. Every Friday there is a cheesemarket here, but unfortunately it wasn't Friday today.
Another part of Alkmaar
For a few years now I am creating stuff with the intention to sell them online. It started with notebooks and lamp caps. Now I am also tiding up chairs, small drawer cupboards and small tables. I am working on my own website, but I'm also considering to start a store on etsy.com. Some things I made:
A chair with nice red floral print
An address book with an old Dutch stamp
A little bag in retro flower print
So... Technically seen it is Friday now, which means I have a job interview today, this morning at eleven o'clock. And I'm nervous already. For now, sleep well!
