      1 Comment on You have got mail

When living on your own, most mail is yours, instead addressed to housemates or ex-housemates. Some mail is nice to receive like a postcard from friends on holiday in the US. Some are less pleasant like bills. And finally some are just plain annoying like the two in the picture below that I received yesterday. For the non dutch people:… Read more »

I wanted to drive with my bike to work this morning. But when I was at the garage box (5 mins by bicycle) I could not find my bike keys… very bad start of the morning.
