It's been a while since I got around to blogging, it's amazing sometimes how little time remains at the end of each day.
Ididn't go to Holland this year for Sintaklaas, but I hear that he arrived safely despite the frost and snow. Izzie seems to have thoroughly enjoyed the experience again, it's amazing that she is now four and awaiting the arrival of a sister early next year. Nicholas and Florine's baby Jake arrived eight weeks early and thanks to the splendid care he is receiving in hospital is making great strides towards going home. I know this is an old picture of Sintaklaas but it's the only one I have!
We are in the grip of a really cold spell, the snow has mostly gone locally but you can see from the picture that the frost still has us in it's grip.
