Last Monday night there were 17 people at Stitch ‘n Bitch in de Jaren in Amsterdam. SEVENTEEN! I think it’s a record. We had to move two of the big round tables together and still we didn’t all fit. Three sat off to the side at a small table. I think they liked it that way actually. 🙂
I always enjoy these evenings so much and I always end up leaving too early. On Monday nights I wish I still lived in Amsterdam instead of so far away in Haarlem. I feel so Dutch saying that. A 15 minute train ride seems like so far away for most Dutch people. Driving an hour to go somewhere is almost never done because it is so far away. Sheesh. It’s a small country and there are times that it feels even smaller.
It’s been a VERY busy week at work and I’ve been home late 3 nights this week. Monday night at SnB, Thursday night doing a little clothes shopping, and Friday night at the company borrel. The last Friday of every month the company pays for drinks and snacks at a local hotel bar. I hardly ever go, but last night it sounded like a good way to blow off some steam from a long week. I stood there and talked with my newest colleagues. Newbies. So full of enthusiasm. That’s nice for a change.
See you at de Jaren Monday night?
