--> Stavanger (N) days of rest

After yesterdays night out, Geert Jan and I woke up after noon this day.
We decided to do totally nothing today, as I could use the time 'off' and with two computers we'd both be working on little things.

Geert Jan was composing drafts of music on his computer as I worked on my website; little things though. Like updating the links-page and working on the database.

And I processed a lot of emails that I just could not do before, a lot was just piling up.

So if you don't mind for one day, this is an extra day which I also enjoyed pretty much.

Thank God that I don't have to bore you with pictures of this empty day, because todays pictures were located together with those of last nights on one disk and the disk was someway heavily damaged. I lost all the files. That could happen with floppy disks.

So, you might also skip tomorrow though, as I stayed here until Monday morning the 3rd...
