Weekend again

Listening to my Ipod Touch running the 2.0 OS. Downloaded some really nice free programs on the APP store. Eating some toast and a pint of Apple Juice, sitting next to the open window overlooking Villingen City. The Turkish restaurant still closed, where we went yesterday for lunch. They have a great lunch menu, just the normal menu is a bit pricey. It has been a really busy week, as the game I'm working on has an important milestone coming up end of August. A lot of assets are coming in, and are populating the game right now. Many more to follow. Last night had a long walk around town, and after that I had a take away Doner Kebab, which is massive here and only €3,-. Have to do some shopping, as my fridge is running empty.

We signed another deal with a new client last week, and doing some exciting female character work for them. All in the Final Fantasy 10 style again. The guys are really excited to be working on this, and so far it's going really well. I'm looking forward to get the first one finished, so we can move on to all the other characters and accessories we have to do.
Another project is running smoothly, although we had a hick up in our resources, but thanks to Shaf that's all sorted now again. The third project we have running is running very nice, so it's all onwards and upwards.

Okay enough for today, finishing my breakfast and off to Edeka (the local supermarket)....

July, Summer Holidays are coming up

From a rather cloudy Villingen, another update from the Black Forest.
My parents where visiting yesterday accompanied by one of my aunties who turns 80 this year. They left the Netherlands last week to relax in a hotel in the Northern part of the Black Forest (nearby Offenburg). What did we do ? Had breakfast in "Raben", which is an Italian Ice Restaurant. After that we had a walk around, and later the day we had lunch / dinner at "Die Ott", 200Gr Angus Steak, with brattkartoffeln, salad and a bruschetta for a starter. They left at about 18:00 again back to the hotel where they were staying.

What else happened last month ?

Workwise we have a busy milestone ahead of us, but everything is going smoothly so far. And we planned our holidays as well, which is something we're all looking forward to. Our own business is expanding, as we started up a business offshore in Capetown, South Africa. As we signed another deal last week we simply had to expand in order to get the workload done on our side. So let's see where the future will take our company. "Onwards and upwards!"

I went home last week to visit my family, and on Saturday we went into town where Noa got a Red Nintendo DS. As the white one was broken, and has to be repaired. Went to Bluewater in London on Sunday, as it was a rainy day. Visited the lego store and some other places. Just a relaxed weekend really.

My friend Jos is now on a holiday with his parents. Visiting Hitlers Eagles Nest in Southern Germany, and then off to Toscane, Italy. Hope he will enjoy his trip over there. They planned a long roadtrip.

have been updating my Hyves, hard to keep everything up to date with all these sites we're on. It's all in Dutch, but there are some images on there too.

More images will follow with the next update.
