Wednesday 1st

Paul was meeting 2 colleagues from past work, so we drove to Salisbury, I wondered round the shops whilst Paul had lunch, having a lovely time, till something that I was looking at fell apart and broke a tacky glass thing and I had to pa the £15 damage, I should of just walked out of the shop when I had the chance, but hey ho, too honest eh?

We sat for a while outside in the sunshine outside a pub, before we drove to Wiltshire to stay with Karin and Jerry, was lovely to sit outside, drink wine, chat, eat, wine, wine, demolish cheese

Saturday

Re-potted tomato seeds

Sunday

Up early-ish final getting ready and off in car to airport, Paul had prebooked space in multi storey car park, but it was full, and had been for the last 2 days, so we drove and drove and drove and finally found a space, hopefully it won’t be raining when we arrive back in the UK

20130529-084634.jpg

The flight had a James Bond ring about it

20130529-084645.jpg

The flight was OK, only 55 minutes, bit of bump on landing. There was a hen party on board, jeepers they were shouting, and after landing, screaming as they met with a stag party returning home – the further we walked away, the louder they got!

Bit of walk to get out of the airport, but we did, clearly, straight onto bus, 20 minutes later we were walking up many, many stairs!

For dinner we found Pompa (snigger) – we drank beer (old skool) and had most delish tomoto soup then yummy burger, tirimisu, coffee, sambucca!

Monday

Coffee/ croissants in local bakery. And off out to see Amsterdam.

20130529-084724.jpg

20130529-084747.jpg

Was alarming to see a apple computer in an antique shop!

20130529-084800.jpg

We found the garden cafe, sat outside, had a delish tuna sandwich and watched the world go by in the amazing summer vibe

20130529-084811.jpg

20130529-084822.jpg

20130529-084846.jpg

20130529-084853.jpg

Bought a few nik naks on the way, and found Pastini, a resturnt we first went to about 18 years ago! made reservation for 9.30 pm and headed back to the apartment, via shops and the supermarket, where we found mini vienetta

20130529-084832.jpg

20130529-084912.jpg

Paul went to massage, then we met at restaurant later

Tuesday

Paul off to conference

20130529-084921.jpg

I had a wonder into town, had book shop, record shop, organic shop and art shop on my list. Found Amsterdam museum and walk on art carpet

20130529-084933.jpg

Saw a relative of Squeak perhaps?

20130529-084945.jpg

Museum cafe looked great/ relaxing

20130529-084939.jpg

Amsterdam was very magical with the sunshine, heat, blue skies and the blossom flaoting everywhere like light snow

20130529-084958.jpg

20130529-085007.jpg

Popped into Vonglepark for my organic apple, and sit down, looked at clouds, listened to music, thought about my dad, had a little cry, felt better, happy, and was ready to move on

20130529-085015.jpg

20130529-085020.jpg

Blossom like snow

Paul back from conference, out to restaurant, too busy, back to the apartment (up the stairs) and an hour later our again, got table, drank beer ate meat!

20130529-085119.jpg

Wednesday

Paul off to conference to speak

20130529-085126.jpg

Weather predicted rain for the morning, so I stayed in and worked on Mittens. Then walked onto Dam Sq to find paperchase and somehow work out how to replace the folder that Paul had written on!

Passed some lovely shops, into Dam Sq, paperchase didn’t have what I wanted, but the assistant said I needed a Scheinhofstarssenaf’ (or something like that) and pointed me in the direction, passed more shops, found a lush fair trade shop and a Mexican one – with very happy/ friendly staff

Eventually found the office supply shop, but they only had the bits and pieces to make the folder, not the folder itself – so I bought a few items in hope that it would work out

Onwards towards a record shop on my list, lots and lots of walking, found a spot for a sandwich, twas OK, not great, but good to sit down!

Record shop, again was OK, and slowly back towards the apartment. Got back in time as the thunder roared and the rain poured – totally different to the last couple of days.

Martine arrived and we left – really liked the place – and the area – tried the restaurant but 30 minute wait – airport – found a restaurant, OK food, passporte, lounge, plane

It is interesting how people like to talk VERY VERY loudly – praise be for noise cancelling headphones

Liverpool, carpark – they tried to charge an extra £65 – but no! – home!

Thursday

The wild garlic was in mega bloom at the hall – turned into pictures for the snowflAke mAker #fluff album
