Finnnaaaaaaaly I have a change to make an update!
Lejow is suuuchhh a busy woman!
She is working 4 days, has 1 day of training on a school to become a teacher, and has to go to school herself 2 evenings a week..
Yesterday it was time for some relaxation, so we watched Grey's Anatomy. I don't know if you have it on TV in Austria, but here it's a big hit!!

I watched Dr. McDreamy (or Dr. Shepperd, his real name)

And the assistents Georgie and Callie (they are married) having a HUGE fight!
You can see the Dutch Subtitles :P

At the 7th of April, Lejows grandma and grandpa are celebrating there 50th aniversery of there marriage!! Her grandma asked her to make some thank you gifts for the guests.. and as it gonna be like 60 people..
Lejow has to make a looooooooooooottt!
They are keyrings! With a couple that are kissing at the bottom, a heartbead, some other beads, and the word : 50 jaar, what means 50 years offcourse!

I have to go now.. for a very important thing for school Lejow has to read something out of the Bible and make an essay about it.. Very difficult... but interesting!!

Rotterdam, Netherlands - 24th March 2008

By: Lejow

Hello again!!
As its been such a BAAADD weather this Easter, and Lejow stayed at her boyfriends these days. Chompers and I decided to make his home UNSAFE!!!
We had a lot of fun!

Looking outside.. waiting for the sun (or maybe some snow or hail!)

Yeahh there it is!



Lejows boyfriend has a lot of pets..
fishy fishy

1 kitty

2 kitty!!

Can you find us in these pictures?


The evening of First Easterday (Here in Holland we have two Easterdays!!) we go eat fondue.
That is when you put a little piece of meat on a stick wich you put in a pan with hot oil!!
It is very nice and you can eat a lot of stuff with it, salades, paprika, tomatoes, pickels, union, bread and sooo on!
I had my own stick to!



It was yummie!
I hope the weather is getting better, because Lejow wants to take me to see some glas warehouses. Thats were they grow the plants, flowers and vegetables in over here!!
Lejow is living in 'het Westland' its the biggest warehouse region in the Netherlands!
But more about that when we have some pictures!!

Hugs and a paw
Bene and Lejow

Poeldijk, Netherlands - 29th March 2008

By: Lejow

FINALLY!! the sun is shining!! We immediatly went outside!
As I told you before, the place where Lejow lives (het Westland) is famous in Holland, it is called the Glas City, because a lot of things (like vegetables, flowers and plants) grow here in glas warehouses!
Because of the weather thats almost always bad here, it can't grow outside. In the glas warehouses, it's always hot and there are special lamps to help everything grow!


Here are two kinds of them!

We also went to see the Church of Poeldijk, unfortunately it was closed.
So I made beautiful pictures at the outside  :p
Do you see the nice sun!



The churchtower used to be the highest point of the Westland, untill the started to build windmills here!!!

Lejow is living in a flat, on the 4th floor. The view is marvolous!!!!!
Do you see the church again?


Hugs and Kisses!

Poeldijk, Netherlands - 9th April 2008

By: Lejow


We had such an exciting evening yesterday.. and it even went on today..
Lejow is going to school in the evenings to become a teacher.. Yesterday she had an important exam to make.
It started with a ENORMOUS traffic-jam. Lejow had never seen it SO busy on the way to her school.

After calling the school that she was coming to late, there came smoke out of Lejows car!!!
The heat of the engine was to high. She immediatly turned the car on the side of the road. Were 2 nice police man came to help her, to push her to a parking place.

From that place, Lejow runnnn to the train, to go to school anyway. Unfortunate she was 10 minutes late, and school didn't want to let her in anymore..
Lejow was soo angry! Now she has to write a letter to the Exam commission if she can make the test at another time..

Wel ok, that was that. But the car was still standige somewhere on a parking place and needed to come home.
So today we maked a big trip!

first we went by bus and train to come to the car
Waiting for the bus... look how nice the sun was shining!

the busstop, it says the time that the busses are ariving.
Dutch is a difficult language!

sitting in the bus..


Finally after a 50 minutes trip we arrived at the car. It was stil standing safe :D


But then we had to wait another 45 minutes for a man of tha ANWB to come (thats a service where you can register in to, when youre car breaks down, they come and visit you for free and try to repair it. If that is not an option the bring you and the car to the nearest garage!)
The man was very kind
his car!

He made an temporarly fix to Lejows car. So we can drive home. Back home again, Lejow brought her car to her own garage.. Now it is waiting when its fixed!
The garage said that the switch to turn the aerator is broken, lucky that costs not to much :D

Now we are going to sleep we are tiiired!

By: Lejow

Today was full of surprises
First there came a big envelope to Lejows house.. She made it open and.. Meleleuca came out!!

Next, Lejow told us that we were going to Scheveningen! To the beach! Beacause it was such nice weather!
We saw so much
First we went in a souvenir shop:

Then she showed us the Kurhaus, it is one of the most beautifullest, biggest, nicest, expensive Hotels of the Netherlands, because it is right at the beach


We went on 'The pier' that is a long big thing you can walk on, that lays in the sea. So the view is marvolous!


And then.. that was so cool! At the end of the Pier, someone went Bungee Jumping!!
He jumped right when we are watching!
So I was a little close to completing on of my life missions  :p

One of my last lovely days with Lejow, because this week I am going to Eryah!!

Alkmaar, the Netherlands - 17th April 2008

By: Eryah


After a very short trip i arrived today in Alkmaar, the Netherlands.

I heard two voices talking about who i can be but i was so hot in the envelope that i run out of it. I saw the door to the garden was open and a beautifull sunshine. The two voices take me to the garden and we sit there for a while talking about our goals. Lillebi was also there! It was great to see her.
The other one you see here is Iggy-Korn

I think i'm gonna have a great time here!

Big hugs Bene

Alkmaar, the Netherlands - 18th April 2008

By: Eryah


Today we went to the ruinechurch in Bergen.
This picturesque ruin church in Bergen once was the biggest church in Noord-Holland. From the 16th century church there is only a ruin left now, because the Beggars started a fire here. Only the choir of the church was rebuilt, so from the original church you can now only see the ruins.
In the village Bergen in Noord-Holland there are many beautiful old houses situated around the old village church.

Big hugs Bene
