(If you don't know what I''m talking about, here is the link to Julia's blog, who hosts this snooping/bloghopping fest).
Yesterday we arrived in Rotterdam (Netherlands). The flight which is only two and a half hours should have been a doddle, but the flight was delayed by 5 or 6 hours. By which time the (regional) airport of Rotterdam
was closed and we had to divert to Amsterdam. We were looked after well, got meals and drink vouchers. Complimentary drinks on the plane etc. There were coaches waiting for us in Amsterdam to ferry us to Rotterdam. What a palaver. But we arrived at my mum's at 7 in the morning (in stead of 11 pm). I don't get stressed by delays. We have good books to read, but the I'm not as young as I was, and a night without sleep has really knocked me for six!
So this is the desk I am sitting at now:
It is my mother's computer. She is 92 years old and can't see very well, so she has a huge screen! The screen on the right is an electronic magnifier, so she can read important letters, documents and sales receipts. (she checks everythng!)
We have just come back from the market just outside mum's appartment. This is her view today (and every wednesday):
She only needs to cross the car park to get to the stalls.
This is me and my mum chatting at the table unaware that we were being photographed.
That's it from me. No craft at all, but I wanted to join you anyway.
Wishing all of you a very peaceful Christmas.
See you next week!
