I'm really not good at DIY, so please wish me luck!!
Update; top seems to have held together . So I've glued and clamped the bottom this morning. If that holds, I'll be trying to reattach the door tomorrow!

Update; door now reattached and working. If you knew how bad I am at DIY you'd realise what an achievement that is

Fantastic. The cool thing is now you know how to remove it if the need ever arises.

I've just ordered some cool packs and a, if I say so myself, stylish cooler bag for my trip to the UK. Three years ago I wasn't impressed by the food on the boat and I was even less impressed by the prices. So this time I bring my own, probably a salad plus some snacks. After looking around for a while I found that the ANWB (Dutch AAA) had both on offer, I cost me less than €7 with no shipping costs because I'm going to pick it up at the nearest store, which is a 5 minute walk from my home.

I also made a list of other things I still need to get and made a reminder in my diary to order some money next week.

I'm really looking forward to it. And with last week's verdict in the Family Thing I should be able to enjoy it more than any vacation over the past 4 years.

Fantastic! I wish you could have fabulous days where you just have fun and relieve them from the stress of your daily work. I wish you a wonderful trip, rest a lot and have lots of fun. Have a nice trip!

It was a busy and chaotic day in the store, so I've decided on a relaxed evening. I've just made tea, tuned to radio to Classic FM UK, got a snack and now I'm going to curl up in bed and read for a couple of hours.

Looking into a travel wifi router/access point. Yes, all the hotels I've visited over the last couple of years had free wifi, but in the morning and evening it tends to slow down. Most hotels also offer free high speed wired inter access in the rooms. I'm hoping by creating my own wifi network from the wired access it'll be a more reliable connection.

The last time I looked, years ago, they were both hard to get in the Netherlands and expensive. There still aren't that many available, compared to the US, but the simple ones are €25 to €40. So worth a try.
