Oma Truus is almost 65 years old. Last weekend we already celibrated this milestone. We had a very nice dinner at a restaurant together with some close family members.
Hannah had a wonderful day. We went with the train to Culemborg. It was her first train trip. It didn't make a huge impression on her, but she enjoyed it. She stayed up very late but she did quite well. Oma Truus bought her some small presents for her during the dinner. So she had something to do, and of course sitting next to Oma is a treat on itself !
After living in Oosterhout for almost 6 months we returned to our cosy house in Eindhoven. Luckily it wasn't sold yet and we moved back in. Hannah will be going to her new school: de Reigerlaan right after the Easter holiday.
I'm now commuting to Delft by train. It's quite a distance but fortunately one connection: approx 1.5 hours. So this leaves me with much more time to keep this site updated ;-).
We all returned safely from our family holiday in Guyana. I haven't put the photo's online yet, but we made family photo's in a studio in Georgetown. Click on the thumbnail to see the photo of the three of us.
We celibrated Hannah's fourth birthday there too, see here for the photos.
Moving house is an excellent opportunity to sift through your belongings and get rid of junk. I considered some things to be a bit more than just junk so I decided to put them on an auction site (http://www.marktplaats.nl (Dutch site, recently bought by Ebay)). To my surprise most items sold very quickly. One of the more exotic items was my Burroughs mechanical adding machine. From a mechanical engineers point of view a wonderful piece of equipment. Too bad it spent its last four years in the storage space in our attic ...

We received some photo's of the finished grave monument:
Thanks to all who supported this effort !
Update 2: 2005-12-12:
Great news: enough money is donated for a decent grave monument. There's even some left for the parents. So I removed the bank account number of Jennifer (see below). We thank Jennifer for all her efforts !
