The painter is very active! When he set to work things moved fast. He was quick on the top floor but he needed more supplies. When he was waiting for that he started on the kitchen. And found a complication! When he removed the wallpaper, the plaster came with it over large stretches of wall. Oh dear! And he's not a plasterer. We discussed a bit. I would have done it myself (I had to patch up the other wall too) but he suggested he would. I think his work wouldn't be worse than mine so that was fine with me. Doing it myself would defy the point of hiring him! So that had to wait for a bit; he needed filler (he preferred that over plaster) and it was almost weekend. He would be back after the weekend! I hope he's finished soon!

This blog started as a tool to keep my Dutch friends informed on my whereabouts when I moved abroad. It quickly also became an external memory for my own use. It largely failed as a stage for discussions on whatever is worth discussing. And it has become a way of sharing my scientific knowledge with a lay audience. And who knows, it could become even more! And whatever it is you are looking for among all this: welcome.
