Yesterday was an awesome day and I just had to write about it. Tom1, Tom2 & myself went indoor skydiving. Tom1 and myself’s birthday present to Tom2. It was absolutely awesome ! But it wasn’t easy though !
We each had 4 turns of 1 minute. My first turn was not so good, I was surprised by the speed of the wind and you automatically want to hold your breath. My second and third turn were pretty good though, I managed to find perfect stability. My last turn was a bit worse, I got cocky and ended up on the floor Tom1 got the hang of it the second he got in the windtunnel though, he was a natural. I definitely want to try it again !
Afterward we went golfing. The skydiving is just across the border with the Netherlands and they have a zone there with lots of stuff. Golf and skydiving are just 2 of them, there’s also karting, paintball, swimming, etc. A great place to spend the day !
In any case, we went to shoot some golf balls from a stationary position (I don’t know the official golf term, sorry ). We couldn’t go on the green though, you need some sort of license for that. Still we had good fun and made up our own little contest which Tom2 won with Tom1 and myself tied for second place. A great day !
Talking about birthdays, I had one myself I turned 31 at the beginning of the month. Unlike last year I didn’t throw a big party, but Valery came over to celebrate for a weekend (well that and to meet Finn of course ). We spent most of the weekend playing Pixel Junk Shooters 2, mini game on the PS3. Was pretty cool
Then let’s come to some bad news. Katrien had an infection on her shoulder and they had to cut it open (pretty much what I had several times in the past few years). It’s on her shoulder though so that’s at least better placed. Same treatment as myself, they have to insert some fabric in there every day to drain it. Hopefully it’ll heal fast. Apparently she had it for a week or so at least but was too stubborn to go visit the doctor, even knowing what those things did to me. The moment I found out I sent her to the doctor. Hopefully there won’t be a next time but if there is she’ll have learned something from this, I wish I could say she won’t be stubborn anymore about visiting the doctor but I doubt it Everything will turn out fine of course, it’ll just take a while longer.
But to end on a positive note, with Finn everything is going great still. He’s growing so fast ! He became 2 months old last Wednesday. But he’s still a model baby
Well I have to go, leaving for Ertvelde
