It’s no secret that I was super sad to leave sunny Portugal. Currently, Holland is experiencing it wettest August in years.
However, today was a just what the doctor ordered. This morning Dave took Miss A to Little Gym and I was left to relax with a book at the café. I arrived at the café to be greeted with a little friend of Miss A’s and his father. How lovely to just ‘bump’ into friends. They left and I settled down with a book….. But not for long, in came another friend. She’d seen me in the window. I told her Dave and Miss A were going to join us, so she called her husband and he came down with Miss A’s little girlfriend. We were soon joined by another friend.
Dave and Miss A left, and the girls and I went shopping sans children. How glorious.
Tonight we popped down to the local park where they were holding a Food Truck Festival. There again, we bumped into friends. Our quick trip out for a meal turned into a little party. Miss A joined by some of her closest friends. Off they went, dancing, running, chasing and jumping.
What a great feeling to be part of such a community. The expat community here have been so welcoming and so inclusive. We are so grateful for that. Thanks everyone.
