A Dinner Date And Fiji’s Fate

Thursdays Feb 23rd –

A little bit of organizing was done.
I guess it’s in the air since that’s what Mike had been doing with the grandparents too ๐Ÿ˜

The space under the guest/nap bed was cleaned out and items went through.
Turns out it was mostly suitcases under there… guess that’ll be a good thing come moving day ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Bags of items no longer needed by us were prepared to give away and then I went through the kitchen cupboards to find more to add to them.
That was a little harder to do, considering I pretty much only have the necessities as it is, and if I gave away too much I’d have nothing left to cook with ๐Ÿ˜œ

Mike had errands to do, I had mail to prepare and then we headed off for a dinner date ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ’•

The restaurant we had planned on (thanks to groupon) looked rather, unwelcoming.

It was in a small, random little town, no cars were outside and the lights were off.
We walked to the front doors and the closed sign was up, even though we’d had to make a reservation for that time and everything.
So a call to groupon was placed for a refund and a new plan made, during which the closed sign switched to open ๐Ÿ™ˆ
But we didn’t want to be alone in the restaurant๐Ÿ˜‚

So we went to Arnhem to try out a Turkish place, ‘Troya‘.
We sat down and began with some very tasty heated bread with a garlic dip.

Our dinner amusement was watching the crazy wind outside ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
A storm was called for and it turns out the news was correct.
The wind was blowing the outdoor seating all over, little partition walls were bowing heavily to one side and branches breaking down, hopefully not on our car ๐Ÿ˜œ

Our first course, lemon lentil soup and a cucumber salad.
Both tasty ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿต๐Ÿฅ—

Our main dishes, burger like kebab and chicken, both accompanied by seasoned rice, fried potatoes and salad.

It was all very good and we plan to return, perhaps with mother!


Before we got back to the apartment we stopped for groceries.
We figured post dinner would be he wisest/fullest time to get food supplies and we had to take the opportunity while we had it ๐Ÿ˜œ

Friday Feb 24th –

After a quick coffee, it was time to pack up Fiji’s things and deliver him to his new owner.

Fiji himself was for sure going to missed and thought of often and fondly, buuuut the whole no more fur and litter box thing?
Not the saddest part of the whole day ๐Ÿ˜

Mike insisted on some photos together, though I wasn’t in the mood, and after a quick bite of brownie for breakfast we began the drive.

Just over an hour later, we arrived at Hilde’s.

She welcomed the three of us in and we visited there for a fair bit of the afternoon.

We left (as you may have read in ‘ A Few Moments, Not All Jems‘ ) with a little piece of our hearts gone, a sweet card and box of thank you macaroons ๐Ÿ’•

Back at the apartment I napped and then got to work cleaning up the place, eating raspberries and cream for supper and wallowing about not having a cat to harass when Mike was gone ๐Ÿ˜

He was off to Germany to get two of our nieces for a sleepover ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง
He returned with food ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿด
Oh Sarah, ever attempting to fatten me up.

Amy and Sophie arrived with Mike and Amy’s first request was a movie… and being the ever pleasing aunt I am, how could I refuse ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pyjamas were dawned, blankets got and ‘Tangled’ watched ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฐ
