Alive!

And then I fell off the face of the earth for a month.....again.. What happened: On the second day of november I was sitting behind my desk and all of a sudden I thought lets get this story out of my head that I've been meaning to write for years. 2000 words later I thought hey isn't it nanowrimo....

And so I started the totally insane challenge of writing a novel in a month and I got halfway. 22.000 words later the pain started. Shoulder wrist fingers. I quit the novel feeling like a loser but I do earn money writing so the rest of the month I haven't typed anything that didn't get paid. But there are stories to tell and pictures to share. Here is one...

A very happy moment in a dutch household. My son swam through the hole and got a diploma!

In dutch swimmingclasses children need to dive through a hole under water. It is scary and ne needed to try twice. This picture was taken just after he succeeded, he was so proud!
