|6 march 2005 "thaw
Nothing much to say today. I was sleepy and
tired and had to work a bit. Jaco still has to finish
his accountantthings, it has to be done by the first
In the midday we went to sea where
Jaco's parents live because Jaco's mother turned 75
last wednesday. On the way the world was still white
but it was melting away a bit.
5 march 2005 "open
This morning it was open
day at the new Highschool Rajacenna is going to. It is
the best school in our town and when people are going
to register their child, it can be very crowdy.
Registeringday is not untill 15 March then I am going
patrol there to be one of the first. Because this is
definitely the school she is going to. The "climate"
in Holland is changing and when you want your child to
give them some Dutch influences, for sure this is the
right school for it.
4 march 2005 snowman
Tonight was the coldest night in march since
1845; it was -21°Celcius. In our part though wasn't
it that cold, but still we let the heater lightly on.
When we came down this morning the snowman had fallen
down. But we knew he didn't felt by hisself
because there wasn't any reason for. The broom was
missing too and we figgered that someone had climbed
on our fence and came in our garden to throw the
snowman on the floor. Earlier that day there were some
guys that wanted to enter the garden too, but I was
just in time to tell them to don't dare that! I guess
they came back at night. At three it started to snow
again and from the remainders of the snowman Rajacenna
and Jaco made our rabbit Stampertje who died last June.
3 march 2005 decorated
The Netherlands is still decorated with snow
today. I watched as much as i could out of my window
to print it in my mind because you never know when it
is going to snow again. Normally every winter we went
on skivacation in Austria but the last six years we
haven't got enough money for that. But i am anxious to
go again one time!
2 march 2005 snow,
Holland woke with lots of snow! In some parts of the
Netherlands there had been fallen 50 cm of snow and nearly the
whole Nettherlands was covered with snow. Wethermen
say that this only happens once in the fifty years. In our
town there was about ten centimeters that is the usual amount
of snow that falls at our part of Holland. Allday it was
snowing and in the North of Holland all the schools and
businesses were closed. It was wednesday so Rajacenna was home
from school the whole midday like every wednesday. Her
girlfriend Amber came over to join her in the snow and we build a
huge snowman. At night we had a lot of fun with all our
neighbours throwing snowballs at eachother in the parc behind
Today it was Jaco's mother's birthday too, she became 75 years
1 march 2005 12
years of marriage
is exactly 16 years ago (1989) that Jaco and I met again.
We knew eachother from school, we did met eachother
occassionally in the years between. So that means that today
we know eachother 22 years. And because we met the first of
march we got married 12 years ago on the same date, Rajacenna
was 5 weeks old at that time. Our little present for today was
the snow that was falling; at three o clock tonight I stood
behind the window watching if there was falling any yet. It
made me depressed because there wasn't falling any snow.
Untill this morning when we woke up!! We celebrate the
day with some pastry and pizza.
Rajacenna had made us an sms to tell us the
citoresults. She had 3 points lower then last year, but still
enough for the school she wants to go at and she could even go
take a higher school then that. She was very dissappointed
about the results because last year she hadn't got the time to
finish each cito so that means she didn't had all the
questions then. And the fact that last year she found the test
much more difficult then this year. So howcome she had 3
points lower? She said this year it was much easier and she
had all the questions. There were more kids that found the
same and it seems to me that the computer, when "seeing"
the results, didn't recognize the thickness of the pencil very
good. It stays a "simple" computer that can make
errors and we had heard that that is sometimes the case.
Strange we didn't get back the whole test of our child so we
could see the results for ourselves.
Well Rajacenna's has nothing to complain because her results
where very good.
Tomorrow they expect more snow???!!
