Gilbert: What I've been up to - part 2


Here is our Christmas tree!

We got a few new ornaments as well.

We got a Christmas box at work!

It was filled with lots of yummy goodies!

Even Truffle Chips!
Nom Nom!

We went into town to get more yummy goodness for Christmas, like cheese.
And we had a drink at cafe Hooghoudt again,

Christmas cheer at the town square!

Another Magnetic Marx arrived for Sullivan!
Beanie thought the package got lost, so ad already sent another one just before Marx the 1st arrived. There was also a cool Paddington pin! Thanks, Beanie!

Gilbert: What I've been up to - part 1


In November I rcceived Beanie Mail!
I won a prize at Bus Bingo!

Beanie was a bit concerned because Sullivan was supposed to get a package as well.

My owner bought us a marzipan piggy 

We went on an outing with friends to an indoor playground.
The menu promised me Truffle Fries, but it turned out they were sold out.

My owner was still tired of being ill earlier that month so while the others went jumping on trampolines we had a drink and looked at the antics of our friends.

10 days after I received my Beanie Mail, Sullivan's package turned up: opened and with a new address sticker, but his prize was in there: a magnetic Marx Puppet!

We went into town at the end of November, because according to my owner Sinterklaas gave her some money to get us books! After book shopping we went to cafe Hooghoudt for a drink. 

And a Vlammenkouk. Yum!

I also accompanied my owner to work a lot. It was getting colder, so I got out my hat.

After Sinterklaas we went shopping for a Christmas Tree. And we had a look at all the cool decorations at the garden center while we were there anyway.

\I spotted a cool hippo seat!

I'm getting a little hungry.

After our shopping we got an oliebol and hen went home to go decorate out tree.

Gilbert: Still Around, and update


I'm still around. 
Here's an update of the things I've been doing.

We went to a Game Night in September where I got to play King Domino.

And Azul.
I really liked King Domino, but Azul was lacking something. Sullivan said it was probably lacking dinosaurs. 

We received awesome mail: A piggy card, dinosaur stickers, and a game on a postcard!

We visited a friend and played Final Girl. This time we almost won!

And we played Tidal Blades, which was a really cool game.

And Farm Fuss, and easy game that looks really cute.

We went for an afternoon stroll.

We had dinner at The 5 Tastes!

I had a Wasabini of course!

And w went to the movies to see the Taylor Swift Eras Concert movie.

And we had a really cool trip planned, but.....

Our owner got ill, so we had to cancel.
We did receive awesome mail that cheered us up though!

We got books, chocolate and more from Jeffe.

A really beautiful card from P.

And a Chocolate Melter Skull from Beanie!

You can put it in warm milk and it will melt. There's even brains inside Beanie told us! We're going to try it soon.

Gilbert: Drinks, Food, & Fun


Here's an update on what I was up in early September

We went out for dinner at the 5 Tastes with a friend.

We had lots of yummy food, and  Wasabi Martini of course.
It was a super fun night!

The next day we went on a trip!
We started our trip with dinner at the Sushi Mall with Diana.

I had lots of sushi

Including banana-oreo sushi!

After dinner we drove to Germany!

Diana got us really cool drinks at a medieval market she visited.

After a fun evening we went to sleep, because early the next day we went to a Farmer's market/flea market! We saw some cool and fun stuff there.

I was tempted by these owls.

I also spotted this cool painting.

We saw lots of other cool stuff, but soon it was getting really hot! We went back to Diana's home to avoid getting a sun stroke. We relaxed and read until the evening.

In the evening we went out for dinner. I spotted this mill close to the restaurant.

And a church.

I got French Fries and mushrooms. My owner had something we shall not speak about.

After another fun evening and a good night's sleep we went shopping and then Diana drove us home.

We stopped in Rolde to see the church.

We also visited the hunebedden close to the church.

It was lovely weather once again.

We visited a farm shop next. They had home made ice cream!

Yum Yum!

We had a great time with Diana. I hope we visit gain soon.
