We wish everybody a happy, healthy and safe 2008!!! Here’s a bit of video from last night’s fireworks in our neighbourhood… I’m gonna miss that in Regina! I also uploaded an album with pictures in the gallery.
I’ve got a couple of updates, mostly small, but one is BIG! WE HAVE A PLACE TO STAY in Regina for the first months, until we are able to buy a house! And so close to home… actually IN the only home we know over there: at Tim and Cortney’s!! Their basement suite will be available again, and we can move in there!! WOOOHOOOO!!! We are so lucky to have friends like them, although “friends” doesn’t even describe the bond we feel… they are family! 🙂
The smaller updates:
I also made a few pics on the 23rd, when we went to see Roadkill and Vengeance in the Nieuwe Nor here in Heerlen. Must’ve been the first time we went to a gig walking!! It was a great night, seemed like a big reunion. Besides local friends, we were happy to see our old palls Bardo of Roadkill and Barend of Vengeance (see pics) once more before we leave the continent!
Xmas was good, on the 24th and 25th we just enjoyed ourselves at home, with emailing Xmas cards, copying old videos to DVD, watching movies and stuff like that. On the 26th my dad and his gf Amalia came by and we had a great meal, cooking our own things on a gourmet grill thingie (something like an electric table-top raclette grill with a griddle on top and little pans to cook on top or to grill below).
After that I worked on the new Brainstorm website for a few days non-stop until deep into the night, and I finished it last weekend: http://www.brainstorm-web.net
And last night we celebrated New Year’s Eve by ourselves, drinking beer and sekt (sparkling wine), eating too much and watching the third Lord Of The Rings movie. At midnight we went outside to spend some time with all the neighbours, watching the fireworks. A few neighbours also came in to have a drink with us.
And now it’s 2008… this is going to be OUR year!!! 😉
