Week in photos #12

11 December 2017

Dear Friend,

Welcome to my Photo series #PointShoot. A look back at our week in photos. I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer focus.


Monday started well as I had a catch up with an old friend and colleague of mine which was lovely but ended with tooth brushing lessons for the boys. They were not very happy but I must say that it has improved their cleaning no end. 

Tuesday was Pakjes Avond, in Holland we celebrate the birthday of Sinterklaas with a present evening. I followed the boys to school and we watched Sinterklaas arrive in a flower truck it was a lot of fun. As the day went on my cold got worse and my voice quieter. But we still had a great family evening with Oma and Opa. The boys had an amazing reaction to their new computer game, I think they were happy.

On Wednesday I had no voice, I couldn't manage teaching so stayed at home in bed and rested. Hubby came home and put up the tree, with Sint over we are moving onto Christmas, very quickly. I do love the sparkly lights in the house and I have enjoyed a minced pie or two. It hasn't taken us long to get into the spirit. 

On Saturday little man played football and then we did the shopping and took a trip to the garden centre to see their Christmas Show. I've gone a bit reindeer mad and bought another one for the tree. Then we spent the afternoon at home chilling. I took the opportunity to watch a few more of the series Outlander on Netflix, I would definitely recommend it.

Sunday morning we got ready and dashed to the MidWinter fair at Archeon. The snow fell and made the atmosphere even more magical. But it was very cold. The boys enjoyed trying on the knights armour and watching the battle. We finished off the weekend in fine form having dinner with our friends.
