Miscellaneous

Waiting on the platform at Amsterdam Centraal for the train to Haarlem, everyone starts running, literally everyone, in one direction or another. We decide to start running too, and get on the train everyone is running to. Luckily it took us to Haarlem.

We have become the creeps we feared we would, talking about what a nice day it is when we see a spot of blue sky or that it's nice and warm when it's 7C.

Don't assume you can get cold and flu tablets in the most freezing place on earth. Because you can't. The most you can get over the counter is Panadol Plus which luckily is slowly helping but for anything stronger it's a visit to the doctor.

Slagroom = cream, just so you know.

That reminds me of a cold autumn evening a few years ago. I was at Waterloo station running for a train. Fifteen minutes in I realised the first stop was one hour away, and not 10 minutes. I missed a hair appointment because of that fiasco

Glad to see you are settling in! The apartment looks wonderful, just a shame you are feeling sick :(
Hope the illness and tiredness stay at bay xx

how exciting to be there, it looks beautiful. (p.s. I was in Vienna at the weekend and saw a moisturiser called Klapp Extreme)

hmmm, interested to know the difference between Belgian and Dutch mayonnaise - my favourite food...

I'll have to bring you some belgian mayonaise, next weekend when we're there. The belgians tend to add lemon to there mayo, which makes it even jummier ;-) Glad to hear our country is agreeing with you!
