Yesterday I arrived in Meppel....again. I have lived here so many times I almost lost count and for now I will probably live here again for a few years at least. To start off with I will be staying in my mum's holiday home, which sounds small and pokey but it's actually a very comfortable house right in the city centre. As she lives in Ireland and spends a lot of time in The Netherlands a few years ago she decided to buy a house in Meppel which is close to a lot of family and friends. She bought a new one recently which is quite large and suitable for dual occupation with the exception of a second kitchen. So for now she is letting me stay there until I find my own place to live with my two daughters.
Today my friend Ragna came to visit. I hadn't seen her in a while and it was good to catch up. We walked through the city centre and sat down on a sunny terrace outside "De Beurs", a cafe restaurant. We both had a nice salad and enjoyed the sun and a good chat.
Tonight my sister and her family came around for dinner, I cooked some fried rice and sateh. Even though I didn't really want to come back as it felt like I was "giving in", it is good to be back in familiar surroundings amongst family and friends...
