Merry Christmas! I hope you are having or have had a lovely Christmas!
Mine was spent on the beach in Zeeland. I adore the beach in the winter and autumn. So, I convinced mum and dad to tag along and off we went! Well, convinced.. My mum was just as excited as I was. My sister however really didn't want to go, but eventually she decided to come aswell. We had an absolute blast.
I ran around like I was a little girl, playing with the waves trying not to get my feet wet... I felt like I was 5. I came across an old lady, who smiled at my sillyness with such joy. It was kind of sweet actually. Funny people. And the dogs, running, I loved it. I really wish we had a dog..
Before we went to the beach, we had a nice breakfast with the four of us, eating way to much bread and lots of tea!
I have to admit, I am bot very fond of Christmas. I mean, while we were eating our dinner in the evening, my parents and sister were already discussing how they were going to prepare the food for the next day.... During Breakfast they were also discussing food. I hate that. Can't we just... Not talk about food and enjoy what's on the table? Am I the only one where that happends around Christmas and New Years Eve? They love it, I don't. That's probably why it annoys me so much...
Anyway. It was a nice Christmas on the beach! With a nice dinner. And Burning Santa Candles!
Special thanks to Mum for the beautiful picture of me on the beach

I guess I am supposed to apologize as I haven't posted anything for over a week. I took a little break of blogging because I had so much to do and finish for school, I didn't want to blog aswell, plus it would be very boring. But I am back, and I went to Aachen today!

I really enjoyed my day off today! Friends, pancakes and dad-primetime. I mean, does it get better?
I woke up at 8am. I was so scared I had woken up to late to go to school! Once I realized I had a day off I felt back a sleep for another 30mintes. Untill 9:30 I stayed in bed, being lazy...

As some of you might know, in the Netherlands we celebrate Sinterklaas on the 5th of December. Today was that day!
We don't get the day of for Sinterklaas so this morning I went to school. Turns out they were handing out "speculaaspoppen" (dutch cookie), didn't get one though...
When my long schoolday was finally over I cycled home in what seemed like a stormy weather. They had warned us about that on the news this morning and through out the day. The windy and rainy weather makes Sinterklaasevening even better though.
For those of you who don't know, Sinterklaas is an ancient tradition where kids recieve presents on the 5th of december and through out the end of november untill the evening of 5december. Those so called shoegifts are usually tiny or sweets. The celebration is held up by every Dutch person above 10. Under 10(maybe younger I am not sure) you believe Sinterklaas brings you presents and knows if you have been good. He comes in the night on the roof, riding his horse to bring the presents. Obviously it is a myth but it's still working as kids believe it to be true. Because we have no little children at home we make each other stuff and rimes with a present. It's the adult version of Sinterklaas...
I made mum a poem which I sew onto a blanket, written on a paper. Dad recieved his poem in a bottle of beer. (his present was a beerglas). My sister got her poem in Spanish(dictionary was the present)
I was given sweet poems and awesome presents. It's all stuff for when I move out which I really wanted to have! Thank you Sinterklaas!
