Visits from Abroad.

So, things are slowly settling into some form of normality…slowly.

A couple of weeks ago we got our residence permits from the IND, though we are still missing My husband’s BSN (I think I might need to head back to the Municipality and find out what’s happening).

As mentioned in previous posts I’ve not been blogging lately due to work and registration stuff using up all waking hours, which is great! I love work, but I could do with less hassle from the local government. I can’t wait to move my computers from home to the office over the next week, it’s really exciting. I only wish what I was doing didn’t require such a high level of secrecy, because I really want to share the huge advances we are making in technology, because the products we are developing are real game changers! They are infused with the pure essence of PPP, they will save millions of tonnes of CO2, Millions of $ in electricity and free up resources for better allocation. But for the next 8 months I wont be at liberty to announce how.

Anyway in other news, at some time this evening my Uncle will arrive in the Netherlands and visit us on his way back to the UK at the end of some sort of business trip or other in Europe. I feel rather odd about this in two ways, partly excited because he’s the first family member to visit us since our arrival here in the Netherlands, yet at the same time, I’m nervous as I don’t want to be a disappointment.

My uncle’s approval matters a lot to me, perhaps more in fact than the approval of my own farther; That’s not to say that I don’t value my farther’s opinion and seek his approval, just that I take it for granted, a parent’s love and support is expected by default, however the respect and approval of an Uncle or Aunt however takes work – Especially when you work in the same industry.

Anyway, I’ve got to finish tidying the house, just in-case Keith want’s to see our home… I hope his car doesn’t attract too much attention (I don’t live in a very affluent neighbourhood).

Oh! on the subject of neighbourhoods well be moving to The Hague soon (it’s closer to work).

Speak Soon,

    Still now BSN? You’ve been trying to sort that out for a few weeks now haven’t you? They are taking their time.
