Letters to Luke - January 2017.

January 6, 2017 LTL, musings
Some complaining, cats, and H.Potter.

Commuter life - on the road.

I hate it when the bus driver suddenly takes a different route and I no longer know where I am.


I can’t believe I haven’t noticed this before :

Commuter life – I’m reading !

And that’s one problem solved …

Hideout – I’m reading.

Shhh … The tree is sleeping.

When it’s winter and the trees have lost their leaves … I just can’t help myself.
Whenever I walk past a tree, I whisper :’Sleep well, little tree. Sweet dreams.’

Commuter life – I’m reading !

When you see me at the bus stop or in the train station, and I’m reading a book … Please, don’t assume I’d rather be talking to you.

Some more annoyances.

I’m not a native English speaker, and I’m sure I make a lot of mistakes pronouncing stuff. But if you’re in IT, you should at least know not to pronounce ‘geeks’ as ‘djeeks’, or ‘character’ as ‘tjerekter’.
Goodness !


Ever since little Jackson has joined the family, Mietje has been living on top of the radio. She sits there, she sleeps there, she eats there.
(The radio is 20cm x 20cm.)

Mietje on top of my tiny radio.
Silent Protest.
I’m sleeping.

But yesterday evening, I found them like this :

Sharing the warmth.
Friends … maybe.

I think all will be well …

Some people …

It is 0°C outside. The bus driver is wearing a short-sleeved shirt and shorts.

A minor annoyance.

Door is locked ...
Door locked.
Door is unlocked ...
Door unlocked.

And we’re off to a great start …

I don’t know how it happened, but this morning, on the first day back to work,
I arrived more than half an hour early at the train station.

A new year.
Train station - Jan 02, 2017.

Or, 3 minutes late.
It all depends on your perspective, I suppose.

Today was also the day that the railway company decided to save some money by turning off all the lights in the station. And did I mention it was cold ???

And then my connecting bus was late.

When I finally arrived at my work place, I was glad to be warm, and in the company of my trusted computer.
But. Hey ho ! No internet !

Now I have 90 minutes to kill until the meeting starts, and no internet. Great.

Ok. The meeting has finished. Two more hours before I can go home. Let’s get some work done !
Still no internet.

It’s going to be all the way up from here.
I just –have- to believe that.
