      I change many times there .
      It's a big coldstore, but also a wind farm terminal.
      She was prepared probably for windmills fundations at sea.
      The only reason ( well 2) i drove to that dead corner of the terminal , taken images and get a cup of coffee and go to the loo ( okay 3 reasons)

                    Tired!!! I should just think you were, Thijs. But look, you have done wonders on the HC. I think it's marvellous, and I'm so pleased to see the table made and in place, even with a drawer, (Never has enough space in which to stash all his STUFF, that man!). It fits beautifully, doesn't it? The finishing off and staining won't take long and will be much easier to do. Hey, are you going to do the walnut graining effect that you had before? That looked smart. Go on, do it, eh? Wheedle, wheedle......

                      Not that tired of working on the HC, had an easy and calm theusday,home at 3.45pm. And that was the down start of it. Home early is start early. And that cyclus stays that way. Alarm between 3.15 and 3.30am every day, this morning agan 3.30am.
                      and this idiot won't go to bed at 8 pm, just about 5 hours of sleep every night.

                      the main rrason for the drawer us to fill the cap, just did a little more and make the srawer.

                      yes , o want the walnut graining again, and on top of the table a place brown Danisch plush

                        Just not good, and you know it.
                        Bur why does the cycle have to stay that way? Do all the other drivers do the same middle of the night start???

                        But you'll soon find vital stuff with which to fill it.
