Things haven't gone to plan, have been going through the usual highs and lows as the work has progressed but am finding it all quite traumatic. It's all been made worse as we've gone from one builder to another as the first packed in his business due to health and financial problems and now it appears he may have over charged us so it looks like it could go down legal avenues. He still owes us work which he promised to come and do when he could but hasn't made much of an appearance. Apparently, the second builder is owed money from the first, who apparently owes a lot of money to other people as well so it has now all got a bit too complicated and so I find myself getting all stressed out as my stomach ties itself in knots. I begin to wonder why I bothered in the first place... I had a dream, but as usual, it hasn't worked out the way I want.
Just scanning the topics. Wesley, your home sounds beautiful-keep up the good work. Hang on in there!

Watching Dutch men try to dance salsa is a bit like watching a giraffe with epilepsy. It was highly amusing, and incredibly sweet how hard they were all trying to control their extra long arms and legs.
All jokes aside, it depends on what kind of dancing you are looking for. There are lots of places to dance salsa, tango, bachata in Amsterdam, but I know nothing about dance clubs in general for party dancing, although they are definitely out there.
And some Dutch men really can dance very well, perhaps it was just my good fortune to go to a lower level salsa class and have a fantastically awkward show for the evening.
I see what you mean about the long arms and legs - still, I like a challenge! Thanks for the info.
