Gelukkig



By the time you see this, dear reader, we will almost be landing in our favourite city in the world (bar London), Amsterdam for a much-needed mini-break for my birthday on Saturday!

There is only one song left to play, really...


"Normal" service will be resumed in about a week.

    1. We stayed right in the heart of it, my dear - right opposite the prozzies next to the Oude Kerk. There were windows for rent but we decided a hotel might be more comfy. Jx

  4. Have a fab time (as if you wouldn't), and mind you don't trip over little mice wearing clogs on stairs in windmills.

    And happy birthday for Saturday!
