Hello lovely girls, It's Tuesday again! (Even though I am writing this on Monday night). The weather is so awful (rain and storm) that I am quite happy to spend an evening behind the computer. I am lucky enough to have a nice desktop computer in the living area. It has a huge screen and I love it. But I find myself using my iPad a lot too. I have noticed that my comments don't come through when I use my ipad, so I hereby apologise and I will try to use my desktop as much as possible.
First off are my postcards. The first one is from....ta-da....Valerie! My name was one of those chosen out of the hat. I got lucky and received the postcard of one of the installations that Valerie visited recently.
I managed to peel off the address sticker so we can all read what it says on the back. (I hope you can read it)
The second one is a postcard i received as a 'thank you' from someone in Holland that I had sent a postcard too. The card has no artist info, it just reads: 'Boomerang supports Kingsday'. I looked up Boomerang and it is one of the largest croud sourcing platforms in the Netherlands (Don't ask, I have no idea what that might be)
Anyway, the stamp is nice and the sender said it was about the Netherlands giving back some pieces of land to Belgium.
"Belgium and Netherlands agree to swap land to simplify border. While Belgium will be losing a splendid piece of nature that juts into the Meuse River dividing the two nations, it will also unburden itself of a jurisdictional nightmare that developed over time as the river meandered to turn the portion of land belonging to Belgium — about 15 soccer fields worth — into a peninsula linked only to the Netherlands. Over time, the area was rumoured to be increasingly lawless, a haven for drug dealers and illicit sexual escapades. Then, some three years ago, passers-by stumbled onto a headless body. “They alerted Dutch authorities, who told them it was Belgian territory,” said Jean-Francois Duchesne, police Commissaire of the Lower Meuse region.
While I was doing this, I somehow seemed to have 'lost' the cat. I found him hiding behind the stove in the corner.
I managed to photograph him in his hidyhole.
Now for my beverage. I will be linking up with Elizabeth and Bluebeard for T for Tuesday. To join the T-Party we contribute a beverage. Mine is an alcolholic one this time. We are not great beer drinkers as in this part of Spain people only seem to drink lager. Anyway, we were at Lidls (German supermarket) and they were selling stout. We both love stout, so we treated ourselves to a bottle. It's probably not high quality stuff like Jo is used to drinking at the festivals she goes to (OK, I am slightly envious), but we thouroughly enjoyed this bottle.
That is it from me today,
Happy T-Day all of you,
