The month has flown by so very fast ! Lots of things have happened, let’s go over them in chronological order
First up is Techdays 2011. I actually wasn’t planning on going to this conference at first since I wanted to focus more on people management, but in the end the tech bug bit me anyways I saw some interesting sessions about Windows Phone 7, which I’m trying to do some development for at the moment to keep my programming skills up to par. So far I’m having fun with it but don’t have a lot of time to put into it unfortunately. But otherwise the conference was ok, I would say better than last year even. Scott Hanselman was epic as always
The following weekend we went to a baby party of Ella (daughter of Liesbeth & Enzo). It was a rather grand event ! So many people and so much yummy food ! They sure know how to spoil people
Next up, my dad’s wedding. It was a rather informal affair, which is definitely a good thing ! In the morning there was limo though to pick them up to go to the city hall where there was a short ceremony. In the afternoon they just put some tables in their little courtyard and people just came by. There were some people I hadn’t seen in a very long time so that was nice to see them again My siblings and I gave my dad and Christine a Thomas Cook Travelbox, a short city trip inside of Europe. Should be fun and I got to sponsor work a bit
It was a week related to weddings, in the weekend there was a party for my grandparents’ 60 year wedding anniversary. My cousin and uncle where there also and I don’t get to see my family at that side often so that was great to be able to catch up.
We’re almost at the end, the last thing I did that was cool was an awesome Supreme Commander 2 game last weekend with Arwen, Bouw, Kirsten and Benny. It’s been a very long time since a strategy game was such a close call but still a win ! It took us hours and it was great fun So much fun even that we’re doing it again next weekend ! Geeks for the Win ! Tomorrow I’m going over to Arwen’s again for a small barbeque … the weather won’t be awesome but at least dry Oh and while talking about the guys, we’ve also got our first appointment with a travel agency to have a look at our big USA trip in 2012, soooo looking forward to that !
Before closing I of course just have to talk a little bit about Finn as well, the little Lord Awesomeness ! He’s still growing very fast, he’s over 7kg already. he’s also moving from milk to vegetable and fruit paste and he loves it (even though he gets half of it all over him) ! He does have a bit of allergies but nothing that most likely won’t pass once he’s older. In a couple of weeks he will have to go to daycare once Katrien starts working again so that’ll be a big change, very curious how that will go !
I also have a lot of pictures to post (my dad’s wedding, party of my grandparents, Finn …) but I’m too lazy to do it now Maybe next time !
