It is brilliant that recently I can sleep so well at night really good.
Most days I wake up much too early but luckily after a bag of THC I can go back to sleep again.
Thought the whole day yesterday that is was Saturday and wanted to see programmes on the telly that are on, on Saturday, guess today I will think it is Sunday.
It is very changeable weather which pisses me off for Darren who is only here for 5 days why can’t it be like all the recent weekends.
Amsterdam is better known for being overcast with constant drizzle to cheer up the tourists doing the culture trail round town, Marleen is quite pissed off that it is so grey.
She is abit pissed off now because Richie is going off to the shops and the market without the dogs.
They hate being left and look really pathetic but soon recover and try and entice us into games.
Today I was shocked awake by a loud voice, one of a group of actors who were rehearsing outside the Fijnhout theatre.
One of the voices carried very far indeed, without too much effort she could talk to someone over 500 yards away at the top of the street.
She was the only one who enjoyed her performance both her colleagues on street level and us here in the bedroom were not too keen.
It is great to hear the sounds of the street again, sometimes it is irritating like late at night when it is warm and people either sit on the bench outside the theatre or on the decking down by the canal.
Or the time the theatre was rented for a wedding party that went on most of the night where every now and then a group would come out to smoke and shout and sadly to argue..
We all tend to forget how every sound carries late at night when we are enjoying ourselves and others are trying to sleep.
It can be irritating but it is part of city life, something a neighbour at our old address would always forget.
She would demand from us her neighbours that we came home and sat very quietly and made no noise at all.
Strange woman perhaps explained by the fact she would come home drunk quite often and leave the front door wide open.
The weather is excellent now so I intend to enjoy it fully.
Hope it is good weather for everyone.
