My first postcard comes from the Netherlands. It was sent to me by Igor, who comes from the Ukraine but is living in the Netherlands at the moment. He commented how surprised he was that the Dutch don't draw their curtains in the evening, so that one can see inside each living room.
The card pictures Nijmegen, a town I am not very familiar with. It is in the east of the Netherlands and I am ashamed to say I have never been there. The church on the photo is the st Stevens church.
The stamp is a Christmas stamp. 'Buon Natale' means 'Happy Christmas' in Italian.What have I been up to this week? I tried to make my own pizza dough. The result was an odd shaped pizza but it tasted just as I like it: thin and crispy. The dough was enough for two pizzas, so I left the dough in the fridge and two days later we had another pizza.
Just to stay in the theme of pizza: I made a scrapbook lay-out this week. (I try to do one a week). These photos are taken at a 'pizza party' at friends of ours here in Spain. They have a pizza oven in the garden and we all made our own pizza. Great fun.The hightlight this week for me (and many many smiles) was the arrival of our new fridge. The courier brought it to our door, so hubby and I gently lowered it down the stairs to our flat and then up 7 steps again into the kitchen. It was not too difficult as we left it in the box.
The big reveal!
It is a combi. Before I had a fridge with a freezer compartment on top. That was getting too small and my big freezer is downstairs (56 steps down and back up again should I need anything).
But as the fridge is at the end of the kitchen, I needed the door to open to the other side. Here is hubby tackling the job.
Now let's link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time to see what smiles she has for us and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday to see what she has been up to.
Have a lovely weekend all of you. Stay safe those of you who are suffering snow and ice.
Here are some funnies to make you smile.
