I'm still working on the new website. Most of the posts (including artworks, blog posts and 365 posts from 2009, 2010 and 2011) are missing. These posts will return eventually. Thanks for your patience!

Wooooo Doctor Who fridge magnets
Not new obviously. We've had these since 2010. But we used to have crappy fridges. And now we have an amazing fridge. So it's a coooool combo.
These are ChEeTaH's Christmas presents!
Well except for the movies, they belong to all of us...
So each year I create these snow stencils for the windows. See the 2010 and 2009 posts! This year I wanted to create some new unique ones. The freezer bunny one is recycled from 2009/2010. But everything else is new.
Freezer Bunny from the Sims games!
Thomas the tank engine, for Seth!
A Dalek. This one was pretty tough to make.
Nyan Cat! Spent a long time on this one as well.
I couldn't resist taking a picture of this, and posting it on my blog. Seth also got a Mickey Mouse magnet from Sinterklaas (forgot to mention that one in my other blog post today). And he went to the kitchen to put it on the fridge.
At first Seth put the Mickey magnet on top of the Dalek. LMAO. The Dalek exterminated by Mickey Mouse. But we suggested he would place it elsewhere. So he placed it below the Dalek and the Judoon. And then he added these (sometimes funny) Ben magnets with random text on it. Ben was (or is?) a telephone provider in The Netherlands. Ben also means "is/am/went" in Dutch. Ben naar de Kroeg means Went to the pub. And Ben bier halen means Went to get beer.
Lol. I just though it was too funny.
Today we had breakfast at the hotel again. I'm a bit annoyed at how soft the staff talks. When we got downstairs, we walked to the restaurant. The girl at the counter couldn't find our name on the list. What is it with this place? She went to check with the front desk, but no one was there, so we were allowed to continue to he restaurant. Then she just walked away, so we didn't have a clue where to sit. And she didn't return either. So when we grabbed food and chose a table to sit on, she came practically running to us to tell us it wasn't allowed to sit there. Because apparently she had set another table. Well, maybe she shouldn't have walked away without telling us this first. So I was a bit annoyed because of this.
After breakfast, we collected our things and arranged a taxi to drive us to CanonsPark station. We traveled to Wembley Park. When we walked out of the station, we were surrounded by many young Doctor Who fans. And a few older ones as well. After having taken some pics, we continued to Wembley Stadium. We later on found out we needed to go to Wembley Arena.
At Wembley Arena, we had to pick up our tickets. We booked in the summer but sending the tickets didn't really succeed so we didn't have em yet. We went in, had a security check and continued to get something to drink. Then got some money from the ATM and bought merchandising! Woot! We bought a program booklet £10, a lanyard with laminated cards £5, Tardis backpack (for Seth!) £15 and a poster £5. I will show pics of the items later.
We had to wait quite some time, but we arrived early because we didn't want to be delayed or anything. We stood in line in front of the stairs. And once the security let us pass through, we walked upstairs quickly. People helpled us to our seats. We had very nice seats, but we already knew this, because we had the best choices when we ordered them months ago.
Just a few minutes before the show started, Steven Moffat showed up with his family and he was sitting only a few rows in front of us! We were in awe lol! I didn't want to bother him. However we did ask if he'd like to go on a picture with Junior during the break.
When the show started we heard that video and photographic material was strictly prohibited. I was really disappointed about this. I came all this way to see Doctor Who Live, and I just want some snapshots to remind myself of what it was like, when looking back at a later date. However, during the show, characters from the show started to walk by and NO ONE listened to the request not to take any pictures. And to be honest, I didn't want to listen either. So I took a couple of pictures, no flash of course, and I took some really nice ones. I may upload some of them later on to my gallery. Will probably do this once I'm back home. I don't have a lot of time here in the hotel to sort pictures and all that.
Doctor Who Live was fantastic. We didn't get to see or meet Matt Smith or Karen Gillan. But it was a really nice show. We loved it. And it was worth our money.
When the show ended, we walked outside and there was an actor named David Ajala who plays the character Peter the Winder. He was signing cards. We also got our picture taken with a smiler! Lol. ChEeTaH was holding a staring competition with the smiler.
We got on the tube again and decided to travel to Canary Wharf. The sun was already setting when we got there. So I was a bit disappointed, because I wanted a nice view to take pics and I had to walk a long time before I got to the pier. I did make some nice pictures though. I would love to go back again. It's a beautiful place.
We tried looking for something to eat, but it was either closed or it was too expensive. We gave up and traveled back to Edgware. In Edgware we went to the Subway, which was still open (yay!) and had a meal there.
Taxi brought us back to the hotel. We ditched our bags and went to the Welcome Break to visit Starbucks. Unfortunately, it was closed. We then chose to grab something to eat and drink at WHSmith.
And then we enjoyed all the items we bought during a couple of episodes of Sarah Jane Adventures!
