More holiday photos from Anglesey, Wales.
Today we had such a quiet and relaxed start it was positively boring, there was no need to call anyone.
The only thing that happened was the person who empties the bins was there doing their thing just before 8 am, which seems to consist of banging the bins to make as much noise as possible.
Always a great way to be woken up and on Tuesdays even better as once the bins are empty the kids arrives together from nowhere.
It is usually about 20 kids, who sound like 60 kids, it can annoy but on the other hand it is also nice to hear their excitement.
Wonder what session they are waiting for, whatever it is the kids love it that is obvious.
Today they were gone as quick l y as they arrived and we were still extremely tired and both of us fell asleep again with out any problems.
A couple hours later I woke up again and once I opened my eyes I started doing the arm exercises.
Did quite a few extra sets which felt very good so I carried on, today my arms were still l very flexible.
The session with the fysio yesterday was very good; hopefully they will remain as good as it is fine for your arms and back muscles.
Keeps everything supple which is brilliant, it was a very good session with Mathilde yesterday.
She won’t be here this Thursday as it is Ascension Day so the practice they work for is closed.
When I came here in 1981 everything was closed for those kinds of holidays, the first time was a shock especially as I needed food.
Even then I got hold of some at an out of hours shop called an avond winkel or evening shop but of course everything was nearly twice as expensive as in the supermarket.
Of course now everything is open so there need be no worries about food shopping or any shopping now the idea of shopping with out restrictions has been embraced by the Calvinist Dutch.
Well it has not been the most beautiful of days with only quick glimpses of the sun.
Does not matter whatever the weather I am doing well hope you are all having a good day too.
