I'm sorry I was AWOL last week but I have been out and about. I have spent some time with my mum in Holland and have come back yesterday.
So my postcard(s) for today are typical of Holland. They are cards that have been given to me so that I might send them:
I had a lovely time. We celebrated my mum's 93rd birhday and it was great to see my relatives again, as I don't often see them of course.
I visited a friend in Amsterdam. The centre of Amsterdam is very old (unlike my home town of Rotterdam, which is very modern, having been bombed completely during WW2). I enjoyed just walking around and looking at the old houses. Here are some photos:
I had to smile at the little sign in the window: No bicycles!
The date on this house is 1618 (visible middle right).
A detail on one of the houses.
I am writing this on Thursday pm before going to the airport. This is where I am sitting: my mum's desk and computer station:
I found an old photo of mum at her computer many years ago. It was my old computer that I had given to her when we had bought a new one. She is sitting at the kitchen table. Unfortunately there is no date on the photo but I guess it is in the 70s...That made me smile.
Talking of smiles.... here are some funnies:
Anyone who has grandchildren will be able to identify with the above.
A bit of streetart.
And because I am about to leave for the airport:
I'm going to link in with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with VIrginia at Rocking Your World Friday.
Have a good week and...
