Dus vol goede moed stapten wij in om op weg te gaan. Autoradio aan... daar werd gezegd dat de adviessnelheid op alle snelwegen 50 km/u was... Toen heb ik het opgegeven en ben terug naar huis gereden, tot grote teleurstelling van de jongens. Dochterlief komt nu met de trein naar huis (hopelijk).
What a morning... We slept in, enjoying our holiday! The boys came out of their beds around 9 and I got out at half past 9. We had breakfast and got dressed. We started packing Wellington boots, sleigh, extra cloth and food to get ready for the day. I am not sure if you know, but we are having some serious snowy weather around here and tonight about 5 cm of new snow fell. We were going to drive to Almere were Esther is staying with a friend. While getting dressed BJ called to tell it took
him 4 times the normal time to get at work and I should checked the road information first. I was glad he called. The road between The Hague and Amsterdam was completely blocked. But the road through Utrecht seemed OK. So around 11 we got in the car and went on our way. I turned the auto radio on and the first news was: a speed limit of 50 km/h for all high ways. That was it. I turned around and went back home. Esther will have to take the train... I am not going to drive for more then 2 hours to pick her up and back for more then 2 hours with the boys. Just too much...

I had some fun sewing time yesterday. When Lori commented at the first stap that this frog fabric was very old she was right! That is exaclty the reason why I used it. I was glad I am only making half amounts. Still working on step 3, so I am off to sew.
Ik word net gebeld dat Esther om half 3 met de trein in Delft is. Haar vriendinnetje, dat dagelijks met de trein naar school reist, reist met haar mee, dat komt wel goed. En ik sta aan het station!
I just heard Esther is coming by train! Her friend whom she is staying with is used to travelling by train to school, so she will come with Esther and I will be at the station in Delft at half past 2!
Inmiddels is ze veilig weer thuis, met 20 mintuen vertraging en koude tenen!Esther is home safely with about 20 mintues delay and very cold feet!
