Today I celebrated my birthday and my first birthday greeting was from someone that I care about a lot that told me they dont want to be in touch with me any more which made me really sad. One of my friends who’s an early riser spent some time comforting me which I really appreciated.
Thankfully, with a start like that, the rest of the day could only get better and the birthday wishes kept pooring in. When I got out of bed I had breakfast and then I packed my suitcase. I have a job that I need to do in Netherlands for a few days and despite not wanting to leave on my birthday I had to make the best of it. Therefore I have already celebrated both with my friends and my sister.
I also had time to sit down and talk to some more of my friends and family that called to congratulate me before I had to leave. However at 11:30 I left for the airport and towards my flight to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. I have been booked for a few days of work for the project I worked on this summer in Den Haag.
I had lunch at the airport. The flight was pleasant and when I arrived in Den Haag checking in at the hotel I met my colleagues, Barry and Roger, whom were also checking in.
We met downstairs half an hour later and went out for dinner, but first we stopped at the Fiddler for a few pints. The funny thing about the Fiddler is that they have very odd beer that you dont find everywhere else. I ordered a Black Mambe which was very sweet and completly black, while Roger had a Deep Throath. At least the names were very interesting, but after that we went for dinner at Los Argentinos where we had an utmost delicious steak, before we moved on to September bar at the Grote Markt for more beer.
I can’t thank my colleagues enough. I was so sad due to the message that started my day, and they did their utmost to cheer me up. Not just because it was my birthday, but because I told them what had happened and they wanted to.
My friends from back home celebrated my birthday too (without me as I had had to leave) and they sent me a nice picture with a birthday greeting to me :D
