I have had quite an exciting and relaxing weekend, especially Sunday was great! S. and I celebrated our four year aniversary in the zoo of Amersfoort, which was very nice. It is not a big zoo, but it is tastefully decorated. And they had lots of baby animals. There were two baby sloths, at least tree tiny ring-taled lemurs and a one year old elephant. I did not take any pictures at all, because I wanted to fully experience the day. And it worked :)
After our zoo party S. and I went to Amsterdam to celebrate my sisters 25th birthday, which was also really cosy. My sister graduated earlier this year, she is a doctor now, and so we gave her a toy doctors bag. Luckily she liked it and did not toss us out :)
On Saturday I visited the thrift shop (again) and I found some glasses and glass plates. And with a tiny little tube of glass glue I turned it into a etagiere:
I went to the bookstore last Friday where I found a one-line-a-day diary, which made me really happy. It covers 3 years, and I can't wait to start writing.

It starts with some stores in London and continues with places in the Netherlands and Belgium. And to make it even better, there a websites mentioned as well. But I will take that up later. This is its cover:
