that kept me busy:)
This a LONG post!
and her husband are coming to Groningen!
I am on cloud nine :)
Ros' husband is a big (football)
fan of Everton.
Everton was going to play
against Groningen on July 22st.
But after Ros made flight and hotel reservations
the mayor cancelled the match.
But still; they are coming.
Maybe not a football match to enjoy but
we will take them on a bit of sight seeing
and some lovely dinners.
And have a few good chats and lots of laughter!
My men are also excited.
Our youngest son Martijn went
to Liverpool in 2015
and is looking forward to
catch up with his second mum!
My absence (sorry) is due to a few things...
Here is my round up from June 1st till now...
I made elderflower syrup:
I also made a few batches of granola:
I attended a workshop at Bij Oma Dee.
We made interactive cards;
in fact I only made one :)
Judith taught us how to make them:
We celebrated the 60th birthday
of one my sisters,
I visited family, a few friends
went out for dinner with
a few former colleagues.
Our allotment is in full swing.
and taking a LOT of time...
One of our friends gave us an old bench.
It was torn apart and rusty.
My husband renovated it and now
it's placed at our allotment.
The perfect spot for a break:
He also built a big storage
box for all our garden tools.
We already harvested sugar snaps,
cucumber, little snack cucumbers, rhubarb
and LOADS of strawberries!
Since June 1st we harvested more than 6 kilo's
(which is more than 13 lb!!)
I already made 20 jars of jam:)
Zucchini is growing like crazy:
The same goes for cabbage:
A few photos of our
front yard at home:
Besides all of that
we had a special party.
Saturday June 17th
this little cutie celebrated his birthday:
Michiel turned 30!
(where have al those years been???)
( the photo is a bit blurry;sorry!)
Michiels' girlsfriend planned a surprise party;
a brilliant idea and Michiel was really surprised.
He had no idea!
I baked his favorite cakes:
A Boston cream pie:
And a strawberry/whipped cream/mascarpone cake:
And of course I made a card
for my boy:
i also made few other cards:
Besides all of this there
were job applications
weeding the gardens and
The days were just filled to the brim.
Right now it's hot here in Holland.
I love some sunshine
but now with 30 degrees Celsius
it's a bit too much :)
Looking forward to a
bit milder temepratures
because my craftroom
is as hot as an oven!
