Hi people, first of all sorry for the silence these last couple of days. Therefor I will talk about last weekend and the weekend before. Let’s start with the weekend from September 17th. This also was the deadline date to send in your photos for the #TeamNaturistphotochallenge on Twitter.
Our first idea was to make the photos a weekend earlier, but that weekend we had some personal stuff on our minds and so many other stuff to do that we simply didn’t have the time. We explained to Björ ( founder of #TeamNaturist ) and promised we would send our pictures before the deadline.
Because it’s very busy at work I didn’t arrive at home on Friday the 16th but on Saturday the 17th. Yes, deadline day. Luckily the pictures were good enough and Björ was able to finish his project. We’re very proud to be a part of it. If you’re interested in other projects of him, like the #TeamNaturistCalender, make sure to follow @IbanSaram on Twitter. We didn’t do a lot together the rest of that weekend because Santana was working both days. The Sunday I took the time to strip one of our bedrooms. Because my mom was so nice to help me I couldn’t do it in the nude, but on the other hand, it gave us a good chance to catch up after not seeing eachother for a while. I had a lovely time with her. So far that weekend.
And now last weekend. A little less busy, but still very short. For the 3rd weekend in a row I arrived home on a Saturday. My ex already brought my daughter the evening before, so when I came home my 2 favorite ladies were waiting for me. Well waiting… one was. My daughter was taking a nap haha. Santana made some sandwiches and soup, so after eating that together we went upstairs to check out the big photo we ordered for our bedroom. Santana is moving in December of this year, so when her bed is here we’re gonna hang it up above it. If it fits. The photo is 160cm x 120cm. In the picture of it below, you can see that our heads in the picture are 2 times the size of our real heads lol.
At that same time my daughter woke up and we decided to go in town to get some stuff. We bought a baby fence to place in front of the stairs,because since a few weeks my daughter can walk/climb the stairs. We also bought some paint for one of the bedrooms, a nice lamp and we expended some toys of my daughter with some extra features. Which was a hell of a job to put together when at the same time my daughter was demolishing it like some baby Godzilla. It was already in the end of the afternoon so I started making my famous macaroni while Santana was feeding my daughter. After dinner we took a shower and brought my daughter to bed. We watched some tv and both very tired, we also went to bed.
After breakfast, we got dressed, packed our things and stepped in to the car. We were going to Amsterdam to have a look at a couch we both like a lot. The couch we’re having now is broken at some points and badly needs replacement. There are a lot of roadworks in the Netherlands at the moment, so after a longer ride then we expected on a Sunday, we arrived at the furniture store in Amsterdam. The couch was amazing and very comfortable. We now have a week to think about it and when we decide to buy it, I’ll be going to Amsterdam again to make the arrangements for the transport.
After checking out the couch we were planning to visit the black market in a place called Beverwijk, but because we lost so many time on our way to Amsterdam we decided to skip that and go to my parents. We already made plans with them earlier, so with us arriving sooner then planned before, we would all have a chance to catch up. We made a small pit stop at the ” Afsluitdijk “, which is very famous in the Netherlands and over the world. Santana had never been there so it was a great opportunity to visit it. After that we drove passed the town where I was born. I showed her the house where I was born, the house where I grew up from age 4 till 14 and I showed her my junior school. We filled up the tank and drove towards my parents.
My parents were very happy we arrived earlier and were amazed by how much my daughter was grown in the past weeks. They still have some of the old toys from my brother, my sister and me so it was a very nostalgic day for me. I showed my daughter the duplo I used to play with and man, that really has evolved the last 24 years. When I look at her duplo and then look at mine…well let’s put it this way… I was born 20 years to soon. What a blessing to have a kid for yourself and be able to play with this toys without any shame. I really enjoy those moments with my daughter.
Again, sorry it took so long, I hope I’m having more time to write very soon. Thanks for your patience and I hope you enjoyed this next chapter of Diary of a home naturist.
Talk to you guys soon ❤️
