I'm on my way home from a nice 'holiday' in Holland, visiting my mum together with my sister. So I have lots of smiles as you can imagine. I'm doing this on my tablet which hasn't got a slot for my camera's SD card, so photos from Holland will have to wait until next week. (I have one or two on my tablet so here we go:)
I really had a great time seeing old friends and family. We have only one (female) cousin, and we saw her the other evening. We met in a town called Leiden. It is a university town, so lots of nice places to have a drink or a meal. We had dinner at a restaurant called van der Werff, and as I love architecture I want to show you a photo of the building.
It is an image from the internet as it was dark when we were there. This is the interior:
We sat at a table at the right, by the window. It was great to see my cousin again. I hadn't seen her (in the flesh) for many years.
I'm the one in the middle, my cousin on the right and my sister on the left.
While we were in Spain, my sister was preparing something for a friend's 60th birthday. We looked in mum's encyclopedia of the 20th century and found the year 1957. We thought the article about Benidorm was very interesting (considering this birthday girl also lives in Spain):
We flew to Rotterdam airport, which is a small regional airport. In fact it is so small that you don't know whether you are coming or going as Departures and Arrivals are off the same entrance hall.
One last photo. This one is from 1971. My younger sister (with the mini skirt) was leaving for the UK (She never returned. She still lives in Cheshire). This photo was taken at Amsterdam airport just before she was due to fly.
That sister is the same one as in the photo at the restaurant. (I only have the one sister). The other people in the photo are me and my parents.
So, those were some of my smiles from this past week. Have you had a good week? Feel free to share your smiles. Seen nothing but clouds? Remember every cloud has a silver lining!
