Weekend

| No Comments

I got up about an hour later than expect and drove over - very slowly - to the tire centre. There were little to no customers ahead of me, so I was hoping to be in and out in a matter of minutes. Then it turned out they didn't have a Continental PremiumContact 195/50R 82V in stock, but they told me to drive over to their branch in Schoten, where they had 9 in stock. So I hopped back into the car and drove to Schoten where I waited in line at the reception for 20 minutes. When it was my turn and I asked to have a tire replaced they said I should just drive in and talk to one of their employees. 20 minutes wasted in line.

I drive up, get a note stuck under the windshieldwiper and get helped by one of the mechanics. After a couple of minutes, he tells me that they don't have the tire in stock. I reply that I've been sent there by the Wijnegem branch of Donckers and that they confirmed a stock of 9 tires in Schoten. After some help from a more experienced technician my tire was found and replaced.

After only 1.5 hours total I drove back out and stopped over at Joco's place to pay him and Eef a visit and play with the kids. Michael is growing really fast, I was amazed.

Tonight I plan to make Argentinian Beef Chimichurri, drink beer and watch DVD's. That Beef Chimichurri dish from Knorr is totally yummy! A tad too spicy for my liking but good nonetheless. I'm having a Brahma (Brasilian) beer to go with it which complements it nicely. The beer is nice but not as good as a Corona Extra but the store was out of those.
