The kids are away for a few days, so in between work we are free to do whatever we want. Today we went to Den Bosch, which is a great city in the south of Holland. Just a little shopping, roaming around and some good food: nice!
The children and I took a nice little trip to see the spectacular drifting ice. It was only a 45 mins drive, but it seemed we had landed upon the North Pole. The children loved it, Simon especially. It was great to see them have such simple fun. What a trio I have... I'm one lucky mother <3
In our previous town we lived within walking distance of the heath. Now we live within walking distance of the woods, but somehow it doesn't feel the same (although I'm not complaining! And we still live within cycling distance of the heath...)
There is something so special about the heath. Even though this is Holland -where real nature is sparse and where you always hear some kind of traffic noise- the surroundings are fresh and calming. We have spent many happy moments on the heath. At first just the two of us, later with 1, 2 and 3 children.
Today was a lovely autumn day. The children are on school break, Michel took the day off. So on an oridinary monday we could just do whatever we fancied.
First a quick trip to the thrifstore, where we took kilos of stuff and bought nothing! We literally came away lighter... Then to a restaurant for drinks and sugary goodness. After that some running around on the heath. We spotted some beautiful toadstools.
