My day is Friday
Written by Kim Nijsten. Vilt à la Kim.
I think it was 07.00 ‘O clock when my husband tried to wake me up and took this picture. 15 minutes later I finally raised myself out of my warm, cozy bed and so my day begun….. with washing and dressing up my girls and myself first before heading downstairs, where my husband is already making breakfast for the kids and their lunchboxes for school.
9.20 h. I need to be at my school where I teach at 10.00h , normally My lesson starts at 8.30 and I’ll should have left the house at 7.30 then, but as I now need to go to my work on therapeutic basis, I can arrive a little later and not for a whole day but for only 2 hours. I kind a look up to going again as it gives me a nervous feeling and heartbeats in my throat… But I am no softie so here I go driving on the high way. The picture is halfway my20 minute drive through a misty landscape today.
09.45h I wanted to take a pic of my class room as well so I went straight to room 109 . My collogues where in the classroom with older students and I took a quick shot. While students were making display materials. It is a very big room and behind “my back” are even a tap and some more tables. I teach children aged 12-16 how to make flower arrangements, did you know?
09.55 h I made sure I was at “my office” before 10 o’clock as the students are having a break then and it is always very crowded in the hall ways . We have to share our computers so you drop where a pc is free, I always try to sit here as it is light and with a view outside….
So happy to see Maastricht on the signs again. As that’s very close where I live.
12.15 I am at home and make myself a sandwich for lunch.. and after that I am so tired I fell asleep on the couch till 14.30h. Nearly time to pick up Janna from school. Today I had a appointment and needed to collect some things for it. You see on the picture. For 8 years I arranged as a volunteer a “collecte” for the “Reumafonds” A collecte is something very typical Dutch, I heard: People are walking from door to door with a bus (the green thing on the picture) and ask if people want to give some money for new cures for Rheumatic diseases. We collected last year 3,7 million Euro’s. It is always happening in the first week of March but As I organized it for our town, all by myself I didn’t feel good about it this year. I am going to visit 2 ladies who are willing to take that part over from me.
17.30 Dinnertime, This evening we are eating Indonesian food: chicory soup with corn , meat and roasted unions, cucumber and rice. I love eating Indonesian as my father came from there. After dinner a quick on-line check again, to see what I missed. Today I didn’t have much time as the kids wanted to make some “ fat balls” with grains for the birds before I took them in.
20.30h Kids are finally in bed and my sister came by to get a start at some new carnival costumed I am going to sew for her as she don’t know how to sew. A bit later my mother drops in too. She has more experience then me in sewing and we are trying to get as much parts out of the fabric as possible.
