I haven't been blogging for a while. I felt really tired after my visit to Schiermonnikoog and the concert of George Michael. And the weather over here in the Netherlands is just terrible for people like me with fibromyalgia! Wet, wet, wet! It more looks like Fall then Summer to me.
Last week Zander went to the farm for a week. As a surprise for him I bought us a new computer. A much faster one then our "old" one. He was always complaining about the games he likes to play and that were working very slow on our old computer.
I also bought a wide screen (crystal) and a new all-in-one printer by Canon. I printed some photos (color and b/w) yesterday and was blown away with the result! So, I'm feeling very happy too!
Before he went to the farm I asked my son if he wanted to go to Disneyland Paris with me this Summer. At first he was very excited to go there but later on he decided he doesn't want to go there because he thinks it will be too crowded for him. Not only in Disneyland but also in the Thalys (train) and the metro. Because of his autism he doesn't like to be in crowded places. I tried to talk to him and explain to him that with a special pass for kids with autism we could avoid long queues, but he also doesn't like traveling by train. And the metro in Paris is even worse to travel with.
I wish I had an (old) car and enough energy to travel to Paris on my own!
I'm a bit dissapointed that we aren't going to Paris. This year it's exactly 30 years ago that I went to Paris to work there as an au-pair. I stayed there for about 18 months, working for the same family all the time. I'm still in contact with them!
I also found out that my father has a malicious tumor in his prostate (?). I went with my parents to the hospital for support the day he had an appointment with the specialist. My dad's 79 years old and for the moment they are not treating him. It isn't spread to his bones yet and he has no complains, so the specialist advice was not to start a treatment because of all the side-effects. My dad has always been in a very good shape because he likes to make long distances on his bicycle (racer). So the specialist wants to wait another 3 months and than check out his blood and prostate again to see how fast the tumor is growing. If it is growing fast they will start to give him hormones. We have been told that men like my father can easily live with cancer to the prostate for another 10 to 20 years! So for the moment we're not worried too much!
I haven't been scrapbooking a lot lately! Too tired!
This is a layout I made 3 of 4 weeks ago!
Used some fabric tags from clothes I bought last year!
