Tomorrow I am going to Amsterdam to be the body guard of nearly 7 year old grandson Toby.

It is about time that I leave home for a few days because I think it is bewitched or I am. It started Saturday when I switched the coffee machine on and after a while as the water was still cold, I told Mr. G that the machine didn't work anymore. Of course it still worked ! He had seen the button red and had turned it off, as he thought I had forgotten to switch it off ! Without my cup of coffee I am not in a good mood and Mr. G. preferred to disappear in his office.

Then I switched on my computer and found a folder in my photos which I had never seen. The title was "photos".  At least that was logical that photos are in the photo folder. I opened and saw all my photos. I couldn't understand why I had them twice now and deleted the folder.

A few minutes later I got a mail from One Drive"
We noticed that you recently deleted a large number of files from your OneDrive.
When files are deleted they are stored in your OneDrive recycle bin, and can be restored for 30 days. After 30 days, deleted files are gone forever.

So I put them back again although I don't know for what use. As long as it is free of charge it's OK.

This problem solved, my computer suddenly started to speak. He told me everything what I have to do "shift", ctrl, and so on. I continued typing but this female voice got on my nerves and I really still not understood why suddenly my computer talked, I suppose there is a function for maybe blind people ? I did a restart and the voice disappeared. Sigh.

At supper time I wanted to make scrambeled eggs with a lot of vegetables, the light went on and then disappeared. My oven was dead ! While I pushed on all buttons, Mr. G checked the fuses in the basement. I tried to follow the cable which connected the oven to the plug and noticed that it was loose ! I gave a hit with my fist and the oven worked again ! Probably my cleaning lady had cleaned too well.

After supper I thought that now my miseries would end and the ghost would go back in his ghost world, when suddenly the phone rang. It was Ilona she asked me what I wanted ??? I hadn't called her since yesterday and I didn't want anything. Now who called her ?? It wasn't me because my phone was far from my hands. It couldn't be a cat as the phone is in a case. It will remain a misery.

So I am happy to leave tomorrow for Amsterdam

to keep an eye on this little man. I think we will have a lot of fun together as he loves also to paint and create things. I bought modelling clay to make little animals or other things

and have pebbles to transform into cats or dogs. So if the weather is bad we have a lot to do.

It is a very modern part on the outskirts of Amsterdam, only existing since 2002 I will certainly go back to this nice restaurant at the port to eat a good pancake with cheese and ham !

I will certainly be short in comments !

Have a good time, I hope the weather is kind to you and that the ghost finds another home whilst you are away.

Haha, my laptop hasn’t talked to me but my phone answers when I’m not asking her anything. Ilona and phone call story sounds very mysterious!
I wish you a safe and fun trip to Amsterdam!

Have a lovely stay with your grandson.

(I will not comment on the rest, since I might get jinxed and the ghost comes here).

I really love the pebbles. Enjoy Amsterdam and I hope the 'ghost' will be gone by the time you get back.
