The homeless man or the businessman… Who is greater?

We rejoice and praise acts of kindness between people. Although sadly humans have a dark, judgemental side. Usually our blog talks about the enjoyable moments spent buy us housemates, but this week I would like to talk about an unpleasant side to society that I have seen occur regularly. read more

Better late than never! by admin, januari 9th, 2013

November has passed buy and taking with it the busiest month of the Mission house so far. It brought three birthdays , Dianna’s, Roisin’s and Hannah’s where lots of celebrations and parties took place. Also Sinterklaas celebrations in which all of the housemates ( as well as Iain and Celest) exchanged well thought out poems and creative gifts. The weather is joining in with our festive mood as we have sighted the first signs of snow, which delighted some of us but made some of us nervous about the chaos it will cause for us travelling on our bikes! So after such a hectic month I can say we are all looking forward to the Christmas break and some of us will be preparing to return back home to our families for a short visit.
