Yesterday, we went to the beach in Katwijk. The weather was OK, lots of wind and very cold, but a good moment for the kids to lose some energy. In the background you can see the rain above Scheveningen.

I think the skies were gorgeous yesterday. They are the skies I imagine painters would like to paint. If I could paint, I would paint them, they are just gorgeous.

Today, when we drove back home, hubbie decided to stop at the new attraction in Rotterdam, the markthal.
Have to admit, there is atmosphere. We had some lunch inside, enjoyed all the stalls and we know now why they call it the Sistine Chapel of Holland... ;-)

The ceiling is brithly painted with foods, and it really looks good. It gives the place a certain look, that fits with the market underneath.
Outside, we had sme coffee with poffertjes, good old fashion ones baked on a big plate, with butter and lots and lots of sugar, yummm!

Cat problems

So our newly nurtured Bobbie thought she could have a walk on the wild side and escaped. So when the kids came home, no Bobbie. They eventually located her outside in one of our tree.

Inventive as the boys are, two of them grabbed a blanket and positioned themselves under the tree. I explained them that she could make it down on her own, but they wanted to be sure...

And let me present Catzilla... It is a cat that come over, it is not ours, we dont know whose it is, but it is huge...

Happy Birthday to me!

Well, another year passed.
Was woken this morning with breakfast in bed... at 7:00. But it is the thought that counts. Got beautiful flowers and nice gifts and spent the mroning with coffee and reruns of White Collar, so a real birthday.
My mum even bought me my favorite speculaas, just one piece, which I had with some coffee thsi afternoon.
Yesterday we went out for lunch with parents, au pair and a bunch of kids. Nice food, great company, Great birthday.
