Two weeks after spraining my ankle and making myself even more house bound (again) I was determined to make it to Turn on the Lights in Dam Square. I have never missed it, and darned if I’m going to now!
We had back up plans of where and how to get crutches if I needed them, but it turned out to not be necessary thank goodness! Would you like to know more?
The shopping season in the Netherlands has officially begun with the major department store, de Bijenkorf, turning on its Christmas lights display for the year.
For the last eight years they have put on a theatrical display along with fireworks and make a huge event out of it. Would you like to know more?
I have been putting off this post for over a fortnight now, and for no good reason I can see. I am just lacking the drive to post around here right at the moment. Better late than never though, and here are some of my New Years reflections.
We spent New Years Eve on the couch trying to keep the cats calm and the noise from the fireworks outside at bay. We were mostly successful! New Years Day we went on our annual walk around the park taking photos to document this year’s devastation.
So many ducks were in the park this year! I mean, I know that it has been a remarkably mild year again this year, but it still took me by surprise. Would you like to know more?
A brief glimpse into our day today. Enjoy!

Giftsmas Market Season has commenced and Himself and I took ourselves off to our first-for-the-season at the Westergasfabriek over the weekend. It was filled with some of the most amazing hand-made products and art!
I love this stuffed toy stall, she makes the most wonderful flamingos! Beautiful stuffies are quite popular though, and there were more to be found just a few stalls away, both for sale, and as make-your-own project packs for a very good price! Would you like to know more?
