Hi everyone,

This weekend I went to a very good friend who lives up in Scotland. The perfect holliday for in between assignments for the master course I'm currently doing.

The weekend was full of fun and amazing views, so I've got some nice pics.


This picture was taken from the place where we parked the car, the top of the Buachaille Etive Beag is the one furthest away and in the middle of the picture.

Just to make sure you all believe I really climbed that mountain *G*

This was actually an error of my camera, but I like the outcome. These are two pictures taken over each other at St Katherine's dock

Why always visa, sometimes mastercard and occasionally Meastro?

Today we went on the search for some cash money in Writtle.
It was a search bound to be difficult, since it seems they do not have a good paying system here in England.
First we tried the coop, there is an ATM there, but putting our card in it would just result in the machine spitting out the card as fast as possible. Than we tried it at the counter and could pay with meastro and mastercard but we couldn't get extra cash money. So we went on and tried the post office nearby, they couldn't do it either and send us to the local Barkleys bank. We could redraw money there with our mastercard, luckily, cause finally we had some cash.

But it still doesn't help that the bank says you can pay with your maestro and especially your mastercard all over the world. Hell I could even use my mastercard in America than why not in England which is so much closer?
They don't even ask for your pincode, they just let you sign the receipt.
And was even stranger, they asked my student id at the bank :/ while they didn't ask my friend's.
This is all very strange, and I do recommend people that visit England to always have cash money, or to have a visa.

In loving memory....

Yesterday evening, Duck Duck, a gorgeous muscovy duck died at just half a year of age. His little sister Sjonnie now has to go on without him.

A day full of sheep

Or actually yesterday was more a day full of animal nutrition and reproduction. My head was so stuffed I went for a nice walk over to the animal unit. Some sheep along the road were posing nicely.
And I found some dandelions, especially the one of the dandelion puff reminded me of one particular fox in his winter coat two years ago *g*

Car boot sale at writtle

Hi ya everyone,

Today there was a car boot sale at Writtle college, they do it monthly. It was really a perfect day with nice sunny weather. I bought just one book, while my two friends bought loads of books/magazines and some CD's. It seems that we all have a preference for reading, I was already joking that if we would by more we wouldn't have any time to study *g*
For just 1 pound I found a very good book that looks like new. I pictured it below and I started to read it today as well. It is a welcomed change in the fact that I am also reading a book about animal nutrition.

I've got loads of work from last weeks classes, but it is all fun to do.

See ya,

The duckpond of Writtle village

This morning as I went to the supermarket I made some pics of the duck pond, the sun was a bit annoying though.

Baby Hedgehog

Hi ya all,

Here are some very cute pics I took of a baby hedgehog of one of my classmates.
I think she is doing a great job by raising this tiny creature so it can be released back into the wild.



DO I need to say more?......

It's 3,5 weeks old

A belly

The baby hedgehog is fed
