Anyway, the point of this rant is to say-this really is the last Dutch post. I love going somewhere different and seeing the things that may be mundane to the residents but are fascinating to me. Andy is never happier than when in a foreign supermarket-on holidays we always make a trip there at least once. I like to look for the things with funny names in English (childish but it makes me laugh) and to see the emphasis put on various foods, and of course the different offers in the catfood range. I think the French were far ahead on the adding vegetables to catfood thing-not necessary to the cats I think, but great in the eyes of the health conscious owners. Though we did used to have a cat who stole broccoli. I am waffling now-the result of two glasses of Friday night wine-much needed after the hectic start to term-making cardboard princesses can be very demanding! That is where I am going to leave it-cardboard princesses-wait till you see them-they are marvellous! I think in years to come, if the internet still works, I will enjoy looking back on the little things in my life that I would otherwise have forgotten.
Today's photos are the last few from Holland-travelling back to the station on the second. Den Haag has modern and old cheek to cheek-a result of a lot of bombing in the war. And the day we went back-the sun came out-at last!
